EASY TO LOOK AT
We’re super proud of the Citizen’s sleek frame design, featuring an arcing top tube.

AND EASY TO RIDE
When it comes to recreational riding, nothing gets more uncomfortable faster than having to pedal more weight than necessary. That is why the Citizen 1 is built with lightweight 6061 aluminum tubing. In fact, our aluminum Citizen frames are at least a half-pound lighter than our famous steel Coda street bikes. We design comfort into the naturally stiffer ride of the aluminum tubes by specifying larger volume 38c tires and adding a few millimeters to the chainstay and wheelbase length.

RIDE POSITION
A usual complaint from new or returning riders trying to get into the cycling groove is feeling uncomfortably perched forward with too much weight on their wrists and having to crank their necks backwards just to be able to see in traffic. We specifically designed our Citizens to remedy this. The large diameter 700c wheels push handlebar height up and shorter top tubes pull handlebars closer to the saddle, all to mitigate forward lean. Our 4-inch rise handlebars sweep back at a natural hand-grasp angle with a long-quilled or angle-adjustable stem that allows for a wide range of adjustment to tune handle bar height and reach perfectly for each ride.

WHERE IT COUNTS
Our super-plush saddle features extra-high-quality polyurethane padding for optimum support with maximum comfort. The slip-resistant suede-type top prevents sliding and the burnished side panels reduce leg friction while pedaling. Elastomer springs help soak up high resonance road vibrations. Offered in gender specific sizes.

WHY 700C?
So why go with a Citizen instead of an Explorer or a Hudson since they all seem to offer many of the same comfort and quality attributes? It’s simple: if your riding will be primarily on the road or on smoothly graded trails, the larger diameter road-bike sized 700c Citizen wheels roll faster with less rolling resistance and roll over potholes and railroad tracks more smoothly than the 27.5” wheels of the Explorer and Hudson.

GEARED TO GO
The drivetrains on our Citizen 1 features a long cage rear derailleur, a full-size 48/38/28T triple chainring crankset, and big 14-34T gearing in the back. This gives you the dual advantage of having fairly tall gears for controlled pedaling at speed on descents as well as really low gearing for easier pedaling uphill. It’s a rider-friendly combination that’s made the Citizens a perennial favorite of recreational cyclists.
