In the details
When I set out to find a classic looking bicycle with upgraded/new components, I wasn't sure I would find exactly what I was looking for. That is until I stumbled upon Linus and read their reviews and researched the Roadster 7i. This bike has everything I was looking for, internally hub Shimano Nexus Gearing, hand brakes, 7 speeds for the hills of the Upstate of South Carolina and the hills of Western Pennsylvania (when we move North), and an entire accessory line to boot. I was gifted the Roadster 7i for Christmas, then I purchased the Linus Alloy Chainguard, the Linus Headlamp 2.0, the Linus Deco Fender Light, the Sidestriker Brass Bell, and the Linus Market Bag (mustard) and it truly is the bike I had in mind. Took a while to get off backorder (thanks Covid), but arrived easy to assemble and with pretty good instructions on getting it road ready. I did take it to my local bike shop after assembly to have a "safety check" done just to make sure I didn't screw anything up too badly. Have been riding it for errands and it truly is a blast to ride.
I am a bit worried about my first rear flat tire when I have to remove the pannier rack and rear wheel to fix, but that is my only concern with this bike. I love it! Highly recommend. Smooth shifting. Easy braking. Love being able to leave my urban apartment and run errands on the bike instead of taking the car. Thanks Linus!
My Roadster 7i arrived on time. Super easy to put together with regular shipping. Beautiful color, a deep, rich green. I’ve been doing about a 10 mile ride in the morning and she rides super smooth. The gears shift flawlessly and the brakes work perfectly. Truly enjoying my new bike and thank you.
I love this bike. It was hard to find with everything going on in the world, but I was able to order one and it was about a month wait before It was at my door. Totally worth it! The fit and finish is excellent, the paint is gorgeous, and it feels like a little tank. I was contemplating this of the 3i. Even though I live in Florida where there are not many hills, there are a lot of bridges to cross over intercoastal waterways, so I am glad I went with this. Even on flat roads, the range of gears is great. You have everything from really easy pedaling to turning it up and getting some speed as you race from A to B. I totally recommend this bike - I've been having such a great time with it so far.
i’ve been away from cycling for years. the Linus Roadster is my reintroduction to biking and i could t be more happy with my purchase.
Everything i wanted. Definitely glad i opted for the 7 speed, we have plenty of hills here in Tacoma WA.
I am 5’9” and i went for the medium. perfect fit as i have kinda short legs.
I have been riding my roadster 7i to work everyday since I got it, and it’s such a joy. The 7 gears are enough to help you up hills while still be able to keep up a fast speed downhill and flat. So many people turn their heads to look at the bike when I ride it! The green color mixed with the brown leather details is perfection . Super happy with my purchase!
