  • Women-specific geometry delivers the speed and agility of a city bike with the stability and heads-up comfort of a mountain bike
  • Micro-suspension seatstays and chainstays, a smaller 27.2 mm seatpost, heads-up riding position and an ergonomic saddle and grips increase comfort and control
  • Low standover height makes for easy mounting and dismounting
  • SR Suntour NEX suspension fork provides 50 mm of pothole-damping suspension; suspension can be locked out when it's not needed
  • Shimano shifters and derailleurs guide the chain through 24 smooth-shifting gear combinations
  • Tektro hydraulic disc brakes supply quick, powerful speed management in all conditions, even rain
  • Kenda Happy Medium tires have a fast-rolling center with aggressive outside lugs for enhanced cornering traction


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.

Can a Topeak rear rack be mounted on an Althea with disc brakes?

Asked by: emajy99
A rack with disc mounts will work on this bike. The Topeak Explorer MTX Tubular Rack with Disc Mounts would be a great choice:
