The Citi Bike bicycles were designed for easy riding in an urban environment. They were built to be comfortable for any type of rider, regardless of height or riding ability.
The wide, padded saddle seat is comfortable and rain-resistant. The black lever at the bottom of the seat post allows you to adjust the seat to your height, and the numbers help you remember your setting for next time.
The aluminum frame is easy to straddle and has a low center of gravity for a more stable ride.
Handlebars & Shifters
The handlebars are designed to let you sit upright and enjoy greater visibility. The shifter is built right into the handlebar – just twist it to make pedaling easier (1) or harder (3).
To brake, just squeeze the levers on both handlebars. The braking mechanism is hidden in the frame of the bike, so it’s not affected by rain.
Lights & Reflectors
Multiple reflectors and self-powered LED lights at the front and rear of the bike make sure you stay visible when riding at night. They come on automatically and flash when the bike is in motion.
The metal rack at the front of the bike fits a wide range of bags. Secure yours in place with the elastic cord attached to the basket.
The puncture-resistant tires are designed to stay inflated ride after ride.
Chain Guard & Fenders
Front and rear fenders protect you from rain or dirt, and the metal chain guard prevents grease from getting on your pant legs.
