Blending comfort and speed, our Novara Express® bike offers all the agility and efficiency of a road bike with an upright, comfortable riding position.


  • 6061 aluminum frame is strong and stiff, supplying quick acceleration and efficient power transfer; shaped seatstays and top tube enhance comfort and performance
  • Fork boasts a tapered alloy steerer with a 1-piece alloy crown for strength and stiffness where it counts; carbon legs help damp road vibrations and reduce weight
  • Flat handlebar positions the rider upright, thereby reducing the stress to hands, neck and back while also improving heads-up visibility
  • Bar ends help you stand over the pedals to power up steep ascents; platform pedals with toe cages let you wear everyday shoes while helping keep feet positioned on pedals
  • Shimano triple crankset and 9-speed cassette provide 27 gears to handle any grade
  • Shimano trigger shifters and derailleurs offer smooth, precise and dependable shifts
  • Linear-pull brakes ensure easy speed management
  • Shimano hubs are laced onto Weinmann rims and outfitted with puncture-resistant, smooth-rolling and reflective Vittoria Randonneur tires for all-around riding
  • Frame features eyelets for fenders or a rear rack (sold separately) for easy utilitarian upgrading
  • Replaceable rear derailleur hanger help extends the usable life of the frame
  • Specs and images are subject to change
