The Biria CitiBIKE 700c Step-through is an aesthetically pleasing, European-style commuter bike with a Hi-Ten steel frame, Shimano 6-speed Revo gears, aluminum black rims, upright handlebars, front and rear aluminum Tektro V-Brakes, and 700c x 28 tires. The front and rear racks, fenders and chain guard are all painted to match, while the kickstand and bell are the cherries on top of this budget-friendly bike.

Tell Your Friends

The vintage style of the CitiBIKE is definitely a head turner.

Wish List

I wish this bike came with a lighter frame and a larger gear range. While it fit the bill for style and was comfortable to ride, it felt heavy on uphill climbs.

Ideal Rider

This bike is ideal for the trendy, laid-back commuter who enjoys taking in their urban surroundings while riding to work or school and does not want to spend a lot of money. This bike is best suited for secure ground-level parking so the rider can avoid carrying the heavy frame up stairs.

Overall

This Biria CitiBIKE commuter will make heads turn with its European, vintage feel. With a durable steel frame, upright handlebars, fenders, racks and kickstand, it is a smooth ride for any fashionista, and won’t break the bank. The only downside is that it is heavy to carry and can be awkward to maneuver inside for storage.

This bike was generously put together by JV Bike in Vancouver, BC. jvbike.com
