Novara Randonee

I just bought a Novare Randonee, but I wont get it until the end of the week, because it's at another store.I was just wondering if they were having any updates for next years model.If they are I can wait or order the new model,which would take about 2 weeks.Thanks George

Judging from REI's web site, it looks identical to the 2006. It definitely had the same specs in the following categories: Frame material; fork material; components including both derailleurs, the crankset, cassette, brakes and shifters; tires; rims; and price. I had noted all of those features on the 2006 when I was shopping. They are identical to the 2007 model on REI's site.

Shimano has revamped it's Tiagra gruppo for '07--- totally different from the '06. I'd get the '07--I'm betting it's higher quality. At the very least it looks better!

Thanks tacomee,I just changed the order and you are right they did change a lot. I hope it works out as I just started riding about 3 months ago and I can use all the help I can get.

I don't see the Randonee on REI's website for their 2007 bikes. I was worried they'd discontinued it. Is it the same color as the 2006? Also, can anyone direct me to a link? Thanks.

I couldn't find the Randonee either from their home page, but I did a search and got to here: 2007 Randonee

They only go up to 59cm, so I'm out of luck.

They measured me at the store and said the 59cm would work.I'm 6"2" and have a 351/2 inseam. If it doesn't fit or you don't like it you can bring it back for a full refund.I took a 55cm(i think) out for a ride and I couldn't believe the difference from my Trek FX 7300.I'm really looking forward to getting it.
