Mountains mean off-road to us, and we've designed bikes to continue on when others would turn back. A little wider tires, suspension seat posts, beefed up frames, higher bottom brackets. These bikes are built for heavy loads.
Starting at $1298
Think of Bike Friday as your personal Factory.
When you design a Bike Friday, you are creating the bicycle of your dreams. You can design a mountain bike starting at $1198.
The price of your Bike Friday primarily will be determined by the level of components you choose for your bike. Our Select Group offers a solid choice of components that would bring your Bike Friday price to $1998.
If you prefer to upgrade your components, well, the sky is the limit.
There's just so much the Pocket Llama with the Select Group can do that folks can't stay away.
The mountain bike attitude can be felt as soon as you leave pavement with the comfort of the Cane Creek Thudbuster seatpost easing out your ride. Avid disc brakes give you stopping power for any Expedition Touring you have in mind.
The Schwalbe Big Apple tires beg for you to hit some trails, and the 27 speed gearing is ready for the long haul.
The New World Tourist can tackle any challenge you throw its way, from multiday touring to daily commuting to simple Sunday afternoon riding.
One of the ways to build a Custom New World Tourist is to add the NuVinci 360 continuously variable transmission (CVT), so you will always find the perfect gear for any situation.
The NuVinci will give you a gear range from 26.5 to 95.5 inches with a 20-tooth cog and 53-tooth ring. Since you are custom designing the New World Tourist, your options are wide.

How much do we love the smooth, quiet and clean ride of a Gates Carbon Belt Drive?
So much that we came up with a new frame design to make it available on our 20-inch bikes.
The Silk Inifinity with the NuVinci 360N Continuous Variable Transmission shows off the versatility of our new design. Set it up for some road riding, touring or commuting. Your choice!
You get low maintenance on your drivetrain when you combine the Gates Carbon Belt Drive with the NuVinci Internal Hub, and have the added joy of always being able to find your sweet spot instead of getting caught between gears. The Avid disc brakes give you power to stop under any conditions.
The Pocket Companion is built for travel, daily utility, recreational riding and exercise. It is based on the NWT with a simpler slighlty less expensive bike in mind..
The Companion with the Select Group is available in your choice of three top tube lengths (52 cm, 56 cm, 60 cm) to fit individuals from about 4-foot-6 to 6-foot-4 (1.3m to 1.9m).
It comes in 3 frame colors (Red, Blue, & Black) along with black cable housing and black or White decals.
It has a Select parts group optimized for best value in entry level but quality equipment, for ride, durability and function. Best value group for a Bike Friday with high expectations of bicycle working well, simplicity, & at best price.
We also build a lot of Full Custom New World Tourists. A very popular model as Full Custom New World Tourists come in literaly hundreds of sizes, including heavy rider upgrades. Plus you have thousands of potential parts choices, if you want. (sounds complicated but our free consultations take the sting out and give you something really special and as unique as you are.) Way to go if Companion is not enough size choice, equipment choice or color choices.
The Select NWT would be a no fail choice for a high end touring bike with a "no travel challenge problem" attitude. Companion owners do report a high level of bike and ride satisfaction. So it is a good Bike Friday to start on if it fits your needs. Contact a Bike Friday Consultant if you want a bit more help deciding.
