My Review of Novara Randonee Touring Bike - 2009


Touring wine country, rolling down the coast or cruising past endless fields of corn, our Novara Randonee is built for comfort over the long haul.

Surprisingly Smooth

Best Uses: Uneven Surfaces, Light Trails, Leisurely Rides, Commuting, Street Riding

Describe Yourself: Avid Cyclist

This bike was purchased for annual summer touring. It performed exceptionally well on the Erie Canal tour of 2008.

I own a bike for commuting and a road bike that I also use for the daily commute. Touring season is approaching and I took the Novara for todays commute. The bike immediately got my attention because of how smooth it made the ride. I was not anticipating that, and was very pleasantly surprised. Being a steel bike, it also takes most of the "bumps" off the ride. Granted, it's a little heavy, but since I don't race, that's a moot subject.

I very highly recommed this bike especially for touring, but it's a really nice commuter also.
