Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great road and gravel bike! This looks like the Novara Safari. I bought mine last year and have riden it almost exclusively. The 48mm wide tires float nicely through loose dirt and gravel yet roll great on the road. I felt a bit stretched out on the bars, so I turned them over and now my position is perfect. I added a front rack and plan on touring rails trails this summer. This is a great rough road, gravel grinder and is now my all around bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, pretty good I have just recently got this bike, and have only done about 25 miles. Overall I like the bike so far. I don't love the angle on one part of the handlebars. They are fine handlebars I think but not quite ideal for me. I wish the ends where they attach the brakes were angled forward a little more. I am replacing the tires right away. These tires have way too much rolling resistance, and are not all that tough and really won't handle well off pavement anyway. REI should have gone for one of the Schwalbe Marathont tires. I'm getting the mondial 40 mm. 48 mm seems rather huge, I would never go over 40. Everything else seems to be good, and I find the geometry to be comfortable. I am 5'11" and have the large bike. I don't expect a bike I buy pre-built like this to be perfect in every regard. I am happy with the purchase. It would also be real nice if REI stores would order the bike in so I could try it on. I was told that they won't. No one serious will want to buy a bike without trying it out. Seems to me that the best I could was order it and then try it out, if I don't like the feel then I can take advantage of REIs awesome return policy. I told this to the online help person, and she agreed that was the best way I could handle it. It would also be nice if REI were willing to swap out part like a normal bike shop. I Shouldn't have to buy a bike with tires I don't like and then replace them myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from !st touring bike I spent time looking at Salsa, Surley, Trek, etc. I decided to save a little money go with this bike sight unseen. So far so good. So far just commuting to work and doing a little extra going home. So far love the bike and fits very well for me 5'8" with medium size. Planning a week long Katy trail trip in june and cross country ride summer of 2018. Looking forward to some extended trips with this bike.

Questions & Answers

Can anyone recommend a front rack for this bike? Preferably something similar to the front rack of the treck 920?

Asked by: DeSiena
I put a Blackburn Local Deluxe on mine. The sales person warned that it would be hard to install but it was not. Only took me a beer and a half. Very solid. I did have to add D rings on both sides for the pannier hook but that was a $1 fix. It is a great rack especially because of the price.

Hi! The frame of the old version of the bike was made of aluminum. It's said here that the new one (adv 2.1) is made of steel. Is it kind of a typo or it's for real?

Asked by: diffelarities
That is incorrect; the old version (The Novara "Safari" bike) had a steel frame as well. The reason all the adventure bikes use a steel frame is because the steel is able to absorb shock and impact far better than aluminum frames can; this also allows it to not need shocks which could require advanced maintenance on extended bike tours.

What's going on? The REI service answer was completely off from what is advertised on the website. The 3.1 doesn't have treking bars and the 2.1 doesn't have 30 gears. Those are the least of the discrepancies. Would REI care to clear up their answer?

Asked by: Daniel Ellsworth
The ADV 2.1 has 27 gears, a Microshift SL-A09 Thumb Shifter and a Shimano HG 4009 9 Speed Rear Cog. In comparison, the ADV 3.1 comes equipped with drop bars, a double-butted Chomoly Steel Frame, Microshift BS-M10 bar-end shifters, 30 gears, a Shimano HG62 10-speed Rear Cog and Clement X'Plor MSO, 700 x 40 tires. Thank you for bringing this discrepancy to our attention. We have corrected the previous answer.

Is the frame fender ready? If so, can fenders be mounted with the 48cc tires leaving adequate clearance for mud or will narrower tires be required for fenders? Thank you.

Asked by: makmak
Like DeSiena here, I'm using the "Planet Bike Black Cascadia 29er Fenders" on mine as well, and they've been great. You will need to use the included zip-ties as was stated, or you can do what I'm doing, and use an L-bracket and bolts to mount it solidly.

Is the rear derailleur long enough to upgrade to a 11-36 cassette rather than the 11-34 that comes standard? I was hoping to be able to get a little more low gearing for going up hills with a load.

Asked by: NV Biker
The rear derailleur has a maximum cassette capacity of 11-36. Please keep in mind this change could impact the required chain length.

Which of the co-op touring bikes would be most appropriate for riding the Great Allegheny & C&O Canal trails?

Asked by: PuntaPete
The ADV 2.1 Bike is a great choice. The butterfly handlebars accommodate many riding positions. The 700c x 48mm can roll over just about any terrain. The Shimano 9-speed drivetrain provides you with a great range of gearing.

When will the Adv 2.1 be available in more markets? I've been checking in the northeast and there aren't any available in M or L. Being that its April I thought I'd see some in stock. Thank you.

Asked by: craigttnelson
Please contact your local REI store to inquire when the bike will be available in store: https://www.rei.com/map/store
