This page is provided for reference to historical product information.

Novara Carema offers comfort, quality and sportiness in a women-specific road bike that's great for tackling your first century, building fitness, commuting or just riding for fun.

  • 6061 aluminum frame is strong and fatigue resistant; sport geometry sets you more upright than race geometry, enhancing long-ride comfort
  • Kinesis carbon fork delivers solid steering and damps minor road vibrations, reducing harsh shockwaves traveling through hands, arms, shoulders and back
  • FSA Vero triple crankset features lightweight and durable cold-forged aluminum arms; ramped and pinned chainrings give crisp shifting and years of solid use
  • Triple chainrings let you storm hills, rocket descents and race flats; 9-cog rear cassette dials in resistance for cadence, wind or slope changes
  • Shimano Sora shifters and derailleurs are light and responsive and deliver the reliability you expect from Shimano components
  • Shimano long-reach brakes enhance tire clearance and accommodate fenders easily (fenders sold separately)
  • Features low-resistance Vittoria Zaffiro tires mounted on lightweight, smooth-handling Alex DA-22 rims
  • Elegant San Marco Ischia women's saddle is contoured and padded to support sit bones through long training rides
  • Platform pedals with toe cages let you wear everyday shoes while keeping feet secure on the pedals
  • 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.
