what is this?
The step-thru style frame sports a downward angled top tube, creating a significantly shorter standover height. The shorter standover height makes mounting and dismounting the bike much easier, regardless of attire. Originally designed with Victorian-garbed female riders in mind, the step-thru frame has gained popularity among both men and women for its ease of use and comfortable riding. Our frame is hand-built and tig-welded high-strength steel for longevity and reliability. The frame geometry is designed to encourage upright riding positions, improving posture and reducing discomfort in your back.
The Venus & Mars city bike line features classic accessories reminiscent of the 1950s, including a vintage-inspired chrome headlight, a mid-century bell, frame-matching fenders, and a polished rear rack. Plush vegan grips and saddle will keep you comfortable while front and rear brakes keep you safe. With dual braking, you have more control over your ride, speed, and stopping. Kenda commuter tires grip the road, even when it’s wet. The unique tread pattern allows liquid to travel through water dispersion grooves, never compromising your control over the road.

The Retrospec Venus Single Speed is the perfect city commuter or weekend cruiser at a great value.
