$ 349.99

Brand Retrospec

The Venus three speed step-thru city bike takes the classic step-thru silhouette and combines it with top-of-the line, industry-renowned components. With three speeds, there’s even less you can’t do with this bike.


THE DRIVETRAIN

Sturmey Archer has been in the game for a very long time. They’ve been building top-of-the-line drivetrains and derailleurs for over 113 years. The three-speed internal hub protects fragile elements from damage and dirt. This means less maintenance throughout the lifetime of your bike.

The RevoShift grip shifter makes switching gears as easy as 1, 2, 3. The handlebar-integrated grip shifter is intuitive and allows you to shift gears without compromising your safety or focus. With your hands always on the handlebars, you can also be more prepared to brake quickly if necessary.


THE BUILD

The downward angled top tube of the step-thru frame creates a shorter standover height, making mounting and dismounting easier. Though originally designed for women sporting Victorian-era hoop skirts and intricately layered dresses, the step-thru frame has gained popularity among both men and women for its ease of use and comfortable riding. The progressive frame geometry is designed for an upright riding position, which is more comfortable and better for your back. The high-tensile strength steel frame is hand-built and tig-welded for increased durability during daily use.


THE ACCESSORIES

Venus city bikes take a page out of the Pleasantville playbook. A chrome headlight, mid-century bell, matching fenders, and polished rear rack evoke a specific nostalgia circa 1955. Ride comfortably on plush vegan grips and saddle. Front and rear brakes keep you safe and keep you in control of your ride, speed, and stopping. The Venus city bike is also equipped with Kenda commuter tires for good grip, even when it’s wet. The water dispersion grooves allow liquid to travel through the channels of the tread without reducing traction.



We strongly suggest that you take your bike to a professional bicycle mechanic to be built and/or checked out. Incorrect assembly of your bike could result in premature wear and/or failure of individual components. The brakes and derailleurs are not yet set up and need to be properly adjusted in order to stop and shift correctly.
