Downtube Nova Lightweight Folding Bike


A Tribute to Avon, the heart of the OBX

Paying homage to Avon, North Carolina, our designers have created the Nova bike. Nova spelled backward is ''Avon'' this lightweight foldable bike is a tribute to the great city of Avon.

Weighing only 24.5 pounds, the Nova is easy to carry around, which makes it a great commuter bike. Additionally, a compact folding size makes it easy to store in any vehicle. Hence we have a bicycle that is perfect for just about everyone.

When it comes to the components, the quality is top-notch like what you would typically expect from a Downtube bike. The Nova's seven-speed Shimano TZ gripshift drivetrain makes traversing through hilly regions an effortless process. This bike also features a frame protector, kickstand, water bottle interface, head tube bag system interface, and front derailleur braze-on ( to make it 14sp or 21sp ). In short the frame is expandable to grow with you.

You can ride it on any kind of terrain. From the flats to the hills, the Nova can handle anything. Combining the bike's ability to handle any terrain and its extreme mobility makes owning a Nova such a great experience. It is a bike that you can take anywhere and ride anytime.

To make it even more flexible, the Nova can be adjusted for use by kids as young as 9-year-olds up to 6' tall adults. This is what a flexible bike is all about, a one size fits most bike.

With its quality parts, unmatched flexibility and bargain price, the Nova is a folding bike that will give you many years of awesome biking experiences.

The bike works great. Was packaged well. Still had a couple minor Knicks on it due to shipping but overall in very good shape. The gears happy be adjusted but otherwise worked great out of the box. Everyone who has seen it thinks it's really cool. I use it to commute to work from parking garage located far away. Easy to throw into the back of my car and I can put it underneath my desk when it is folded up. Only odd thing is that I chose an orange bike since yellow and orange were the only two colors and in fact I received a red bike. I like red. Just would have been nice to know what colors are actually available and what color I will receive.

Downtube nova

This is my second one. I ride it in nyc and it takes quite a beating and keeps on going. Great bike and great price. And Yan’s support is amazing. You actually get to talk to a person. Thanks much.
