  • 6061 aluminum frame is strong and stiff, supplying quick acceleration and efficient power transfer; shaped seatstays and top tube enhance comfort and performance

  • 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

  • Replaceable rear derailleur hanger help extends the usable life of the frame
  • Specs on our Novara Express bike are subject to change


All bicycles sold at REI include a free warranty tune-up. New bikes go through a normal break-in period, after which readjustment is important for longevity and performance. Bring your new bike in to your local REI for its free tune-up within 20 hours of use or 6 months from purchase, whichever comes first. Contact your nearest REI bike shop to schedule this important service.
