Bringing single-speed simplicity, the new Novara Buzz One bike is part of our Mainline bike family, offering alternative transportation in a low-maintenance, single-speed design.
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
Single-speed drivetrain features a SR Suntour crankset with a 42-tooth chainring driving 16-tooth freewheel; flip-flop rear hub can be turned over and run with a fixed cog
Frame and fork feature eyelets for fenders and a rear rack (sold separately); low-profile chain guard helps keep clothes out of the drivetrain
Tektro linear-pull brakes make sure work of speed management and offer plenty of clearance for fenders, sold separately
Cockpit has been designed for comfort, thanks to the plush Velo Buzz saddle, mustache-style handlebar and cork grips
Colorful Weinmann DA19 rims stand up to tough road conditions to help keep you rolling along smoothly
Puncture-resistant Kenda tires feature a wide, stable footprint and all-around tread pattern for sure rolling
Just get on and ride, no fancy shoes required—platform pedals accommodate a variety of shoes
Specs on our Novara Buzz One bike 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.
An oversize shipping charge of $75 applies to this item (plus regular shipping fees). Or ship it FREE to any REI store for pickup. Read more about shipping options.
Rated5out of5byTheMoxfromAwesome Ride!I bought this bike for my wife as a casual bike for everyday use (quick errands, trips to lunch/dinner, etc.). She loves the simplicity of a single speed and the comfort that Novara provided.

Rated5out of5byhbar314fromGreat single speed a wonderful priceI picked the Buzz One up for a general commuter bike (~5 miles one way) and for going to local bars/shops.
Everything is great about it. I like the wide cross tires and the single speed gives me a good work out without being a pain.
