  • Nimble 6061 aluminum frame and chromoly fork are lightweight and stiff for efficient cycling and a lively feel
  • FSA Tempo compact crankset provides youth riders a better fit and feel than a full-size road bike, allowing for more-efficient pedaling
  • Shimano 2300 shifters provide quick, crisp shifts through 16 speeds to tackle varied road terrain
  • Kalloy road handlebar and 26 in. wheels with quick-rolling Kenda tires add up to a fast road machine
  • Velo Junior Race saddle comfortably fits small frames
  • Specs on our Novara Pulse bike are subject to change

All bicycles sold at REI include a free warranty tune-up. New bikes go through a normal break-in period, after which readjustment is important for longevity and performance. Bring your new bike in to your local REI for its free tune-up within 20 hours of use or 6 months from purchase, whichever comes first. Contact your nearest REI bike shop to schedule this important service.

by fromGreat Bike I was looking for my 9-year old's first road bike. As you may have already determined, there are not a lot of choices out there for kid's road bikes. But this bike was exactly what I was looking for. It's a little more money than I was planning on spending, but realized that paying the extra money was worthwhile. Besides, quality kids road bikes have a good resell value. My son just fits the bike, so he will get years of use on it. It is well-designed and components are good quality. One nice and important feature not mentioned here or at the store, is that the reach of the brake levers is adjustable -- making it easier to brake for smaller hands to brake. There are micro-adjustments on the derailleurs and front brake - although not on rear for some reason. But that minor issue is the only thing I would change on this bike. It really is a great bike and my son loves it!
