Bike size and availability question

Does the co-op cycles CTY 2.1 Step-Through Bike come in any other colors? If so, when will those become available? 

Does the non step through version of that same bike come in an XS?

Hi @Mgaines425 - Thanks for bringing these questions to the community!

Unfortunately, the CTY 2.1 Bike is not currently offered in a size XS. The CTY 2.1 Step-Through Bike is offered in the color Dark Vin Rouge, in addition to the Cacao option that is currently available. Additional inventory of all sizes of the Dark Vin Rouge bikes is expected around the end of October. These dates could change based on variables in the processing and shipping timelines, so we suggest checking the website periodically around then to best keep track of availability.

Hopefully this helps!

This is good to know, thank you! Are there any alternatives to the CTY 2.1 Bike that you would recommend?


Hi @Mgaines425 - To make sure we're giving you the recommendations that you're looking for, are you interested in an urban bike that is specifically available in size XS?

Yes, rider is a woman 5’2” without shoes on.  Inseam is 28” without shoes on. Regular tennis shoes will be used to ride the bike. We thought this more closely aligned with the XS but could possibly be the S. Preferred bike-types option would be a non-step thru version of the CTY 2.1.


Hi @Mgaines425 - Thanks for this clarification. 

An alternative we recommend looking into is the Cannondale Quick CX lineup. The option most comparable to the CTY 2.1 will be the Quick CTX 4. The size small on this bike is smaller than that of the CTY 2.1, with a height range including 5' 2". We are expecting additional inventory of this bike around the start of November.

For the CTY 2.1, because 5' 2" is right on the line for size small, it could be the right fit with shoes on, though it is hard to make that decision without test riding the bike. If interested in trying that bike, those are expected to be available in size small around the end of October.

With both of those dates, please note that they could shift due to the variables mentioned in the previous response. Thanks!
