Part of our Mainline series, the Novara Fusion is a smart approach to transportation. With a commuter-friendly build that includes lights, fenders and a rack, it's ready to help you bike your drive!

  • Fusion is all about commuting and delivers the confidence and performance to pull off long rides in any weather, at any time of day
  • Frame offers an easy-mount design; powder-coated steel construction provides a smooth ride quality and delivers plenty of strength to withstand regular use on rough roads
  • Shimano Alfine internally geared rear hub provides 8 smooth-shifting speeds and is remarkably maintenance free compared to conventional cassette systems
  • Shimano RapidFire trigger shifter quickly snaps through the 8 gears; paired with its 20T rear cog, the Alfine system has a gear range equivalent to a 12 - 38T cassette
  • Basta LED headlight is powered by an Alfine dynamo front hub and remains on for 4 min. after stopping to ensure your path is lit, even when stopping for lights
  • Battery-powered taillight provides rear visibility and is motion- and photo-sensitive; battery indicator lets you know when its time to replace the battery
  • Shimano mechanical disc brakes provide positive stopping power no matter the terrain or weather—great for worry-free navigating on rainy days
  • Tektro brake levers feature an integrated bell to alert others of your whereabouts
  • Rear rack quickly accepts panniers and trunk bag (sold separately), letting you tote along your essentials with ease
  • Puncture-resistant Vittoria Randonneur tires feature reflective sidewalls, sure grip and a fast, smooth ride
  • Cockpit has been designed for comfort, thanks to the plush Velo saddle, mustache-style handlebar, cork grips and height-adjustable quill stem
  • Rounding out the package are fenders and chain guard to keep clothes protected; kickstand makes storage/parking easy
  • Just get on and ride, no fancy shoes required—alloy platform pedals accommodate a variety of shoes
  • Specs on the Novara Fusion 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.

Rated4out of5byfromGreat BikeThis is a comfortable bike. It looks good and is well set up. It shifts smoothly and I have found the eight gears to be just enough to tackle whatever terrain I need.
