Reach for the Stars

The Venus seven-speed step-thru city bike is the perfect traveling companion for any and all of your outings. Equipped with a Shimano Altus seven-speed drivetrain, you can do just about anything on this bike. Ride from home to work, from work to market, from market to your mom’s, from your mom’s to class (Jeez! You’re really busy!), and then back again.


The Drivetrain

The Shimano Altus drivetrain is the only choice when it comes to reliability, comfort, and ease of use. With seven-speeds, the Venus seven-speed step-thru can declare its dominion over flat city streets, hilly campuses, and uneven trails. The Shimano Altus is known for its precision and timeliness.

The RevoShift grip shifter is integrated into the handlebars, allowing you to safely shift gears without sacrificing control of the handlebars. Switching speeds with a grip shifter is not only easy and straightforward, but it’s also very convenient and instinctual. Having your hands on the handlebars at all times keeps your attention on your ride.


The Build

The Venus seven-speed city bike is built around a hand-built, tig-welded, high-tensile strength steel step-thru frame. This style of frame was traditionally intended for Victorian-era women to accommodate big bulky dresses. Today, however, this frame style is popular among men and women because of the lower standover height, making getting on and off the bike much easier. With the progressive geometry of this model, you’ll also be compelled to ride in a more upright position, reducing strain on your back and neck for an ultimately more comfortable ride.


The Accessories

The Venus city bike line flaunts a vintage-inspired charm. Between the chrome headlight, mid-century bell, frame-matching fenders, and polished rear rack, you’ll be certain this bike is straight out of Leave it to Beaver. Stay comfortable on plush vegan grips and saddle. Dual braking will also keep you safe. Front and rear brakes make certain your ride is in your control. Even the Kenda commuter tires will improve your excursions. With water dispersion grooves, your tires will always make contact with the ground, even in wet conditions.


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.
