Our Novara Buzz V is an urban commuter and campus cruiser that won't curb your cash flow, which is why we affectionately call it the Budget Buzz.

  • Sturdy 4130 chromoly frame utilizes mountain bike geometry for a heads-up ride that cruises up and down city hills
  • Chromoly pinpoint fork with tapered legs takes the edge off of the roughest urban roads by reducing the effects of road vibrations
  • Tektro linear-pull brakes confidently decelerate your bike when you need them to, especially important on busy streets and at intersections
  • SRAM 3.0 grip shift levers and X4 rear derailleur can take a beating and keep on shifting mile after mile, smooth or rough terrain
  • Truvativ crank and bottom bracket deliver solid performance, whether you're grinding a steep hill or drafting a bus
  • Stout Weinmann XTB-26 rims are laced up onto 36-hole hubs to stand up to tough urban environs; puncture-resistant Kenda Urban tires feature a wide, stable footprint
  • Allen bolt skewers help deter wheel theft while you are away from your Buzz V
  • Velo BUZZ saddle provides padded support and comfort
  • Stylish flat fenders keep water and mud from decorating your person while braving the elements
  • Just get on and ride, no fancy shoes required—BMX-style platform pedals accommodate a variety of casual shoes
  • 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.
