Partnering with Dahon, the world's leading folding bike manufacturer, we created the sleek Novara FlyBy Shuttle, which folds into a neat little package for urban commuting or compact travel.
Folding is quick and easy—fold the handlebar in half, fold it in, open lever to split frame into 2 and fold it back on itself ... Voila!
Aluminum frame is strong yet lightweight; quick-release frame hinge is reliable and does not compromise frame strength
Frame also features eyelets for both fenders and rack (sold separately)
Dahon Radius telescoping stem flows easily into frame head tube/fork; patented locking mechanism is hidden inside handlepost body for a clean profile
Shimano Nexus 7-speed internally geared rear hub and twist-shift lever deliver high efficiency, smooth shifting and low weight
Dahon Kinetix linear-pull brakes and Formula levers deliver dependable deceleration
Features Dahon Kinetix double-wall aluminum rims and Schwalbe Marathon tires for smooth-rolling performance and solid puncture protection
Velo SHUTTLE ergonomic saddle is designed for comfort; double-density padding helps relieve pressure
The seat post is also a pump! PostPump mechanism is hidden inside the seatpost and uses the seatpost as outer wall of the pump
PostPump is easy to use—you stand while you pump and use the saddle as a handle, so there's no kneeling in the dirt
Folded dimensions are 12.6" x 25.2" x 29.5"
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.
