Our Novara Gotham has a revolutionary design for city riding with a Gates® carbon belt drive and NuVinci® N360 rear hub. It's a quiet ride, fully outfitted with a rack, fenders and lights.

  • Features

    • NuVinci N360 continuously variable planetary (CVP) rear hub uses rotating, tilting balls inside the hub to supply smooth, quiet shifts whenever you want, even when stopped
    • NuVinci CVP design also means there's no indexed "ker-chunk" between gears, just a continuous range that lets you find the amount of resistance that best suits your needs
    • Gates CenterTrack Belt Drive uses a carbon-reinforced belt instead of a chain for a quiet ride—belt doesn't require lubrication, so there's no greasy chain to deal with
    • Using the twist shifters is intuitively simple and offers super-smooth, seamless movement throughout the gearing range with a flick of the wrist
    • 6061 butted aluminum frame and fork are lightweight and strong
    • Tektro Gemini hydraulic disc brakes deliver superior stopping power
    • Head tube features Novara "N Dock" mounting braze-ons to attach a cargo-hauling Barrow basket (please note that the basket is sold separately)
    • Rear rack on the Gotham is ready for cargo, quickly accepting panniers or trunk bag (not included)—great for carrying groceries or work essentials
    • Lezyne 500-lumen rechargeable headlight brightly leads the way, and a built-in battery-powered rack-mounted tail light aids rear visibility
    • Upright-riding cockpit is designed for comfort, thanks to the Selle Royal saddle, mustache-style handlebar and ergonomic grips
    • Puncture-resistant Schwalbe Marathon tires feature sure grip and a fast, smooth ride
    • Rounding out the package are polished fenders to keep road grime and water off you and the bike; bell on handlebars signals passing; kickstand makes storage/parking easy
    • Specs on our Novara Gotham bike are subject to change
