  • Butted aluminum frame features shaped seatstays and top tube for enhanced comfort and performance; flat weld head tube improves strength and handling precision
  • Fork boasts a tapered alloy steerer with a machined, 1-piece alloy crown for strength and stiffness where it counts; carbon legs help damp road vibrations and reduce weight
  • Shimano 105 shifters and derailleurs offer high-end shifting performance and dependability without an astronomical price tag
  • Compact crankset and wide-ranging 12-30 cassette deliver the gearing versatility of a triple crankset without the weight or finicky shifting
  • Compact crankset is mechanically simpler and more reliable than a triple crankset; and it delivers virtually the same gearing
  • Shimano long-reach caliper brakes are compatible with fenders (not included) and deliver dependable braking power
  • Sturdy Weinmann rims, dependable Novatech hubs and Clement Strada LGG tires provide smooth-rolling performance
  • Eyelets for fenders let you outfit the Strada for wet-weather or commuting (not included)
  • Replaceable rear derailleur hanger helps extend the usable life of the frame
  • Specs on our Novara Strada road 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.

An oversize shipping charge of $60 applies to this item (plus regular shipping fees). Or ship it FREE to any REI store for pickup.
