Tackle what the city throws at ya. The Co-op Cycles CTY 2.1 bike has a shock-absorbing fork for pothole-filled roads and a 2 x 8 drivetrain for optimal options without overcomplicating shifting.


  • Upgraded 2x drivetrain (from previous model's 3x) makes for smoother shifting—and less of it too
  • Suspension fork provides 63 mm of travel to smooth out rough roads
  • Reflective sidewalls enhance visibility
  • Riser handlebar puts your hands in a natural position to reduce strain
  • Ergonomic grips provide comfort and support hands
  • Double chainrings simplify front shifting and provide plenty of gears for flats or hills
  • Tektro hydraulic disc brakes provide sure stopping power in variable weather
  • Top tube attachment points let you mount a bag where it's easy to access (like the REI Co-op Junction top tube bag, not included)
  • Accommodates a rear rack and fender (rack and fender not included)
  • Bicycle weight limit is 300 lbs. total, including rider + all gear carried on the bike and on the rider's body
  • Specs and images are subject to change
