Transcend time and space with the Venus single-speed step-thru city bike. Its timeless silhouette will ride with you as you navigate campus and city streets. This bike is simplicity evolved, a single-speed that will never leave you wanting more.

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.


We strongly suggest that you take your bike to a professional bicycle mechanic to be built and/or checked out. Incorrect assembly of your bike could result in premature wear and/or failure of individual components. The brakes and derailleurs are not yet set up and need to be properly adjusted in order to stop and shift correctly.
