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.

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