I travelled into London this week for a meeting and thought it was the ideal opportunity to ride the Novato, our stealthy urban bike. The Novato has amazing handling and filled me with great confidence weaving between double decker buses on Oxford street. The bike is equipped with Hayes MX-4 mechanical disc’s with 6″ rotors for assured stopping power and strong, fast rolling WTB sx24 wheels which can take anything the city can throw at you. The bike feels burly yet nimble and allows you to ride in comfort or like a city courier hoodlum. Power transfer is rapid, the full gearing and 26″ wheels with super fast rolling Conti, SportContact, allied with the rigid fork feel so responsive. Track stand at traffic lights or roll along one of the city parks, the Novato can do it all and will leave you with a smile on your face.
