Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Randonee excellence continues with the ADV 1.1 I have the 2014 Novara Randonee. I was happy to see that REI has continued to carry this bike under the new name. It is the most comfortable and stable bike I have ever ridden. I purchased the ADV 1.1 bike for my girlfriend and am pleased that she feels the same way. This bike will typically be compared with other mid-range touring bikes such as the Trek 520 and the Surly LHT. My girlfriend was previously riding a Salsa Vaya. I would recommend that you not overlook this bike just because it lacks the brand pedigree of a Surly, Trek, or Salsa. This is a highly under-rated touring bike with comparable specs. We find the geometry of this bike more comfortable than the other three models mentioned. It has a shorter effective top tube and longer head tube, providing a more upright riding position with less reach. I guess that this more relaxed geometry comes at the expense of a more aero-dynamic bike. Fine with us as it is not a bike for racing anyway. It is THE bike for long days in the saddle. We both have Brooks saddles on these bikes. I can ride all day long, day after day on trips such as RAGBRAI, or loaded touring, and I always look forward to getting back on this bike. The stability and comfort make this bike a keeper for life. So glad my girlfriend can now experience what I have been the past 3 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will begin touring and update So far a good 10 hours on the saddle, full back panniers and tent on the rack. The Deore components are solid, along with the Schwalbe Marathon tires. Only concern is the store rep. sold me a medium, and in retrospect and looking at the spec sheet here I might be a large at 5'10". I'll continue to update as the months roll by, and will probably be purchasing another for my wife in 7-8 months if the outlook is strong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Newbie to Bike touring I have been riding pretty seriously for 12 years and am interested in touring. I have my first week long tour coming up and have been looking touring bikes for several months. I have looked at a Trek 520 and 920. A Trek Crossrip 3, a Fuji Touring bike , a Salsa Marrakesh, and Surly Long Haul trucker. I picked the ADV 1.1 because it essentially incorporates the same components as most if it competitors and has an attractive price. So far I've ridden on 50 mile rides and love it. I is responsive and comfortable. It easy to service and appears to be a quality build.

What is the widest tire that will fit the Co-op Cycles ADV 1.1, with and without fenders?

Asked by: cyclingdann62
Assuming it's the same as a 2016 Randonee (looks just like it) 45mm Smart Sams are tight and will (barely) rub the chainstays. 40-42mm (Mondials) are pretty comfortable. I'm pretty sure I could fit a fender over them.

Is this supposed to be the "new" novara randonee? I had a 2012 randonee that was stolen and I need to replace it but I can't find the same cranset (44/32/22) nor the same nor the same rear cogs (11-32) on your new bikes...

Asked by: CP75
I think the performance will be similar because the rear cog (11-34) will offset the larger crankset up front. If not, one could easily replace the 11-34 with an 11-36. I have the old Novara Randonee (2014) and it's rear was the 11-32, with the 44/32/22 up front. I just turned 70 and -- having labored over the continental divide 5 times on my last ride -- I switched to an 11-34 rear-end and am very happy with the new climbing gear selections this gives me. Specifically, you'll be getting a 19.8 (max)gear inch climber, versus 18.9 with the old Novara. So, unless you're an old geezer like me, you'll be fine with the new set-up. If you're not happy with it, you can have the bike shop switch out the crankset, but you need to try it first because you might be happier with the new system, especially if most of your riding is on relatively flat terrain. All this presupposes that you want this bike. I purchased the Novara Randonee because I'm long-legged with a short torso. The Randonee was the best fit I could find. You could throw in another variable and go with a LHT from Surly with 26" tires .... but I digress ....

Is it possible to get the ADV 1.1 with disc brakes? If so, what is the upgrade cost? If disc brakes are not currently available, do you anticipate that they will be available for before February 2018? Thank you.

Asked by: jcwla
This bike is not available with disc brakes nor are we aware of a future model that does have disc brakes. The frame is not designed for a conversion to disc brakes.

What is the benefit of the FSA head block headset?

Asked by: Burly
​The benefit of the FSA headset with Head Block turn limiter on this bike is that the handlebars will not impact the frame of the bike when turned.
