Novara Randonee Bike - $1199



Our Novara Randonee® touring bike is built for epic rides that cross mountain passes, explore the countryside and tour through town after quaint little town.

  • Classic touring frame accommodates fore and aft racks and fenders—rear rack provided (front rack and fenders sold separately)
  • Reynolds 520 chromoly frame offers great stability and strength under heavy loads, and you get the reliably smooth ride quality that steel is known for
  • Dependable Shimano Deore LX crankset and front derailleur, along with the super-reliable SRAM bar end shifters and X7 rear derailleur, make up the 30-speed drivetrain
  • The SRAM X7 rear derailleur accommodates up to a 36t rear cog for an ultra-low gear option for sweet relief when tackling mountain passes with a full load
  • Tektro linear-pull brakes provide reliable stopping power; wide brake arm spacing allows ample room for fenders front and back
  • Robust Mavic A319S 36-hole rims and puncture-resistant Vittoria Randonneur tires have the durability needed to log long miles; tires also have reflective sidewalls
  • Riveted leather saddle is contoured and padded for support and comfort during long days on the road; leather handlebar tape offers matching style and excellent longevity
  • Randonee's fork features a cable guide braze-on for easy upgrading to a dynamo front hub; also includes spoke holders on the drive-side chainstay
  • Pedals sold separately
  • Specs on the Novara Randonee touring bike are subject to change
After an initial break-in period you might notice your bicycle performing less responsively than the day you brought it home. Not to worry, this is typical of all new bicycles and simply reflects that cables have stretched or their housings have seated themselves into final position. To keep running at peak performance, all REI bicycles come with a FREE warranty tune-up, which should be accomplished between the first 100-200 miles of riding or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly. Contact your nearest REI bike shop for details and an appointment for this important service.
