Shoot for the stars with Venus seven-speed step-thru city bike. A classic silhouette, hand-built with high-tensile steel effortlessly moves with you. Venus is simplicity evolved, a dominating seven-speed with Shimano Altus drivetrain will never leave you wanting more.

Venus is your ticket to elevated city cycling. Our leading 7-speed city bike pairs a classic silhouette with first-class components for an all-around dreamy ride. We hand build our bikes using high-tensile strength steel for a frame as durable as it is dazzling. Venus is a delightful blend of classic charm and modern componentry. A Shimano Rapid Fire 7-Speed shifter and Shimano Altus derailleur make switching gears a walk, or bike, in the park. Easily transition from hilly streets to flat city paths with a flick of the wrist. Venus’ 700x32C Kenda Commuter tires sport strategically placed water dispersal grooves for consistent grip and control as you ride, even in wet conditions. Sealed Cartridge Bearings keeps dirt and grime out of your bike and away from integral components, so your bike stays on the road longer. 

What's the difference between Venus and Beaumont City Bikes?

While similar in “oh-so-charming” looks, and both of them really are charming, Venus sports enhanced componentry for a smoother, longer-lasting bike. Upgraded parts and top-of-the-line components bump Venus to a higher caliber in comparison to Beaumont.

    Measuring Inseam

    Inseam is the most important metric to consider when deciding on bike size. In order to take this measurement properly, follow these guidelines:

    1. Stand upright with your feet 6-8" apart.
    2. Using a tape measure or tailor tape, measure from the bottom of your foot to the top of the inside of your leg.
    3. Compare your inseam measurement to the standover height of the bike. You should have about an inch of space between your body and the top tube.

    Fenders Man

    I absolutely LOVE this bike. Easy assembly. Beautiful colors. Fast shipping. But those fenders... I did everything to get them straight, but I truly think the fenders need to be redesigned or modified in manufacturing. They are crooked on the front and back. ☹️

    Beautiful Bike. With No instructions

    I absolutely love the bike itself . However the instructions for putting the bike together was literally horrible. I had to put the bike together looking at pictures. The instructions doesn’t fit with the Retrospec “culture” The city cruiser is beautiful and rides very well. The seat is comfortable and the gears switch easily. I would buy it again but I would take it to a bike shop for assembly.

    Love it!

    Really smooth ride. Classic design. I get lots of compliments. On the downside, it’s a bit heavier than some. Wish the step through was lower, too. I’m older, and have to angle the bike down toward the pavement to mount. But all in all, I’m really happy with this purchase.
