Offering great value as a transportation solution, the Novara Buzz harks from our Mainline series of bikes, blending comfort and utility into a sturdy all-around ride.
Powder-coated 4130 chromoly frame and pinpoint fork offer a sturdy, heads-up ride that cruises up and down roads with a steely-smooth ride quality
24-speed drivetrain is made up of SRAM Via crankset, trigger shifters, rear derailleur and Shimano Alivio front derailleur, supplying easy, precise shifts
SRAM Via linear-pull brakes make sure work of speed management and offer plenty of clearance for fenders
Stout Weinmann DA19 rims are laced onto 36-hole, disc-compatible hubs to stand up to tough road conditions
Puncture-resistant Kenda tires feature a wide, stable contact patch, versatile tread pattern and reflective sidewalls for enhanced visibility
Cockpit has been designed for comfort, thanks to the plush Velo Buzz saddle, mustache-style handlebar and cork grips
Frame and fork feature eyelets for fenders and a rear rack (sold separately)
Frame and fork also feature disc brake mounts, which, combined with the disc-compatible hubs, makes it easy to upgrade to disc brakes
Just get on and ride, no fancy shoes required—platform pedals accommodate a variety of shoes

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.
