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.

    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.

    Solid low cost, yet stylish bike

    Love this bike, but I had to wait for months to order it and even then the color I wanted wasn’t available. Assembly was a little more difficult than it needed to be, but in the end I’m really looking forward to riding this cute bike.

    She is a beauty!

    Received my new bike, husband assembled it and everything looks great.. been riding her for couple weeks and just this evening ride I heard noise coming from gears. Husband said he will look into it. Probably just needs tightening. Hopefully nothing serious. I get a lot of compliments. This bike gives me comfortable ride. Thanks Retrospec!!!

    Love My New Bike

    I absolutely love my new bike! I got the Venus 7 step thru city bike in eggshell, 42cm and it is exactly what I was looking for. I am 5'2" and it fits me perfectly. I like that it is very adjustable so the handlebars and seat can be positioned for my short legs and arms! It rides very nicely and has the right amount of gears for me as I only tend to ride around town and on mostly flat bike paths. It looks lovely as well! I have had so many compliments. Very happy that I went with this one:-)

    Great bike. Difficult fenders.

    The bike is very nice looking and there are a lot of features to choose from. The fenders need to be precisely adjusted and tightened so that they do not rub the tires. The light seems to be a delicate plastic. I did not install it. Smooth ride. Nice brakes. Smooth shifting.
