This is a monthly feature to remind you that when you buy a used bike from the Community Cycling Center’s retail shop (1700 NE Alberta) you are not just getting a cool bike, you’re also helping fund their amazing education programs for low-income youth and adults.

This nearly new, 17-inch Novara Fusion was kept in excellent condition by its previous owner. It will make a bicycle commuter very happy with its many commuter-friendly features.
It is a great year-round bicycle with everything from full fenders to a Shimano 8-speed internal hub. Other great features include double headlights for maximum visibility, heavy-duty rack for groceries or work clothes, drum brakes for all-weather stopping, and a suspension seat post for comfort.
The dual headlights are cleverly designed with both a battery-powered light with bar-mounted on/off switch and a hub-generated light with an automatic sensor. Once the sun starts to set you can see and be seen with the flick of a switch.
This will be a great around-town bicycle for someone serious about comfort and visibility. It would even suit a beginning bicyclist, with its many easy-to-use features.
This bike would be very compatible with the Community Cycling Center’s new Women’s Urban Cycling class. The next class is scheduled to begin on Wednesday April 23 from 7-9pm.
Proceeds from all bike sales benefit programs for low-income youth and adults. Bike Clubs start this week at 18 local schools!
