Ride it as a speedy commuter, weekend tourer, cargo hauler or any number of other options—the Novara Buzz Road melds the city-smart utility of our Buzz line with a road bike design.
Strong and light Kinesis 6061 aluminum frame features an alloy pinpoint fork and is fender and rear-rack ready
Avid BB7 Road disc brakes offer powerful stopping; they have light action at the lever and caliper positioning system for perfect alignment to the rotor
Shimano Tiagra 9-speed shifters and derailleurs move quickly and precisely between gears
Compact FSA Gossamer crank is paired with a 11-26T cassette to dish out the power to conquer steep city hills and cruise on the flats
Alex SC3 disc wheels with puncture-resistant Vittoria Randonneur 700x28c tires offer speed, agility and durability
WTB Dirt Drop handlebar provides comfortable positioning and helps you stay on top of traffic changes
Custom graphics tie in with the custom Buzz stem, seatpost and saddle for subtle style
Platform pedals with toe clips accommodate many casual shoes (but we suggest supportive cycling shoes for racing and touring)
Specs are subject to change
After its initial break-in period you might notice your bicycle performing less responsively than the day you brought it home. Not to worry, this is typical of all new bicycles and simply reflects that cables have stretched or their housings have seated themselves into final position. To keep running at peak performance, all REI bicycles come with a FREE warranty tune-up, which should be accomplished between the first 100-200 miles of riding or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly. Contact your nearest REI bike shop for details and an appointment for this important service.
