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.


When you purchase your Novara bike on, have it shipped to any REI store where it will be ready for pick up fully assembled (and you'll avoid the home-delivery oversize shipping charge)!

What makes this bike women's specific? 

Asked by: LG201416
From what I can tell, the Carema 3D is the same exact bike as the Strada 3D except the following: - Carema comes in size XS where Strada does not - Strada comes in size XL where Carema does not - Strada has the "Novara Road" saddle where the Carema had the "Velo" saddle.  - The Strada comes in blue while the Carema comes in red Hope this helps. The Strada 3D is virtually sold out now so it might be a moot point.
