City streets beware the Novara Big Buzz bike! This curb-hopping, alley-surfing, ''no thanks, I'll ride'' street machine will turn the concrete jungle into one big playground.

  • Features

    • The streets are dangerous, so we've built this nimble ride with two big front chainrings and fast 700c tires for just one reason: Speed!
    • And if you want to ride this hustler town-to-town, that's just fine—Big Buzz dishes out long rides with performance and comfort to spare
    • 6061 aluminum frame combines mountain bike geometry with road bike tubing for a lightweight, heads-up ride that flies up and down city hills
    • Alloy straight blade fork with tapered legs takes the edge off of the roughest urban roads
    • Comes with Avid BB5 disc brakes because that's what it takes to decelerate from warp speed
    • Two forward chainrings and nine rear cogs create 18 speeds of versatility to conquer the steepest city hill and cruise country roads
    • SRAM X.7 Twister shifters sport a 1:1 actuation ratio and SRS technology for light, precise indexing; quick view indicator tells you where you are
    • Alex TD24 lightweight double-wall rims offer workhorse reliability
    • Puncture-resistant Vittoria Randonneur tires feature reflective sidewalls and a fast, smooth ride
    • Velo BUZZ saddle is ergonomically designed and padded for support and comfort over a long day's ride
    • Just get on and ride, no fancy shoes required—BMX-style platform pedals accommodate a variety of casual shoes
    • We let loose with a hand grinder on the frame to create a raw, industrial finish that makes each Big Buzz unique
    • Specs and images are subject to change
