2010


LIFE IS BETTER WITH THE BICYCLE

It’s surprising how much the world slows down when you’re

spinning on two wheels. The air seems fresher, the colors more

radiant, the day opens with new promise and wonder. Bikes

empower us, helping us create healthier, more sustainable

lifestyles. In an era beset by global climate change and diminishing

fossil fuels, cyclists become part of the solution by powering the

world’s most efficient, non-polluting form of transportation.

We founded Civia because bikes are integral to our lives. We

ride for fitness and transportation. We ride to make our planet

more livable for future generations. We ride for the simple joy of

riding. We know that by designing and engineering bikes to fill

specific transportation needs, we can transform the bicycle from

a mere mode of going into a preferred way of being. By delivering

comfort, performance and fun in every bike we make, we bring

the benefits of cycling to more people than ever before, making

the bicycle a major form of transportation in the 21st century.

Come explore our lineup for 2010. You’ll find a Civia that suits

your style and meets your needst. Stylish, efficient and reliable,

the Hyland is built to go the distance and carry loads in all kinds

of weather. With its elegant lines and vibrant colors, it’s easy to

forget the Loring is also a sturdy cargo cruiser, built for fruitful

expeditions to the grocer, the farmer’s market and beyond.

New for this year, Civia introduces the Bryant, a steel, drop-bar

commuter equipped to handle tough urban slogs or weekend

camping getaways. Helping more people enjoy the biking way of

life is core to our mission. That’s why we are excited to introduce

the Linden and the Midtown—new models offering a Civia

transportation experience at an affordable price.

OUR VALUES

Passion

We are passionate about life and how the bicycle enhances it.

That’s why we are committed to creating the best bikes for our

journeys to work, the grocer, the beach and beyond. By creating a

new breed of bicycles, we are spreading our joy and enthusiasm

for cycling with an ever-expanding circle of riders.

Respect

Bicycles intimately link us to our neighborhoods, towns, cities and

the environment. Building on these connections, we develop deep

respect for our community and the environment in which we live.

Sustainability

We are committed to sustainable business practices and

developing long-lasting relationships. By forging strong

partnerships with like-minded people we cultivate mutually

beneficial, long-lasting relationships.

WE ARE WHERE WE RIDE

Bryant Avenue

The Twin Cities is a region sprinkled with countless neighborhoods

and parks. Many of these places are so integral to our experience

of living, riding and working in the metro area that we named our

models after them. Although our bikes were inspired by specific

places, their appeal is timeless and universal. So if you’re ever

visiting the Twin Cities, come share the pleasure we experience

daily by touring our wonderful parks, preserves and lakeside trails.

Remember, no matter how beautiful you find the scenery, it looks

that much better when you’re riding a Civia.

Hyland Lake Park Reserve

Our inaugural model, the Hyland, was named for this beautiful

preserve. With miles of bike, run and ski trails winding past

pristine lakes, rolling prairies and verdant woodlands, Hyland Lake

Park Reserve is a favorite year-round retreat for the staff at Civia.

Because our offices are located on the park’s southern edge, we

have the pleasure of commuting along these trails nearly every day.

Midtown Greenway

Linden Hills

Charming, yet sophisticated, this Southwest Minneapolis

neighborhood retains a small-town feel in the heart of the big city.

Tucked between Lake Calhoun and Lake Harriet, the streets of

this urban village are lined with fashionable cafés, restaurants and

boutiques. A short hop from the Grand Rounds National Scenic

Byway, Linden Hills is a perfect place to relax after a ride along the

50-mile bike trail. Our new bike, the Linden, reflects the elegant

simplicity and refined sensibilities of this idyllic corner of the city.

Bryant Avenue

We named our newest top-end model, the Bryant, after this

culturally diverse urban lane. Spanning across Minneapolis, Bryant

Avenue is a major north-south corridor through the heart of the city.

Much more than a connector for cyclists, this avenue offers riders

homey breakfast spots, chic cafés, quirky corner grocers and coops,

baseball diamonds, tennis courts and after-hours hot spots.

Linden Hills

Loring Park

Perched on the southern edge of downtown Minneapolis, Loring

Park is an urban oasis where tree-lined bike and pedestrian

trails wind around a small lake. Art museums, theaters, scores of

restaurants, a university and colleges surround the historic park,

making it a cultural center. The sophisticated qualities of this

neighborhood are reflected in the Loring, a perky errand-runner

that offers elegance, fun and just the right touch of big-city attitude.

Midtown Greenway

Our Midtown model was inspired by this vital bicycle freeway.

Built atop an old railroad bed, this major cycling artery connects

the western suburbs with the Chain of Lakes, Uptown, south

Minneapolis and the Mississippi River. Along its broad stretch,

cyclists, runners and walkers can access everything the city has to

offer, from lakeside picnic grounds and summer concerts to diverse

ethnic cuisine, clubs and vibrant nightlife.

Quick, refined and graceful, the new Civia

Bryant is a high-speed commuter built

for all-day comfort. Weaving through city

gridlock or rolling down a country lane, the

Bryant delivers a lively yet comfortable ride.

From commuting to camping, the Bryant can

carry big loads while delivering responsive

handling, superb balance and outstanding

performance. Designed with a unique split

rear dropout, the frame accommodates a

traditional derailleur drivetrain or a belt drive

that provides reliable performance in the

worst conditions.

components

and accessories

Civia components and accessories are designed in-house by

people that ride daily and expect a lot from their bikes. We start

with their experience and make the part or accessory that best

fulfills the need. New for 2010, we’re expanding our line of

racks, handlebars, fenders and bags. We continuously develop

new products, so check out civiacycles.com for the latest.


COMPONENTS AND ACCESSORIES

LORING BASKET

PLATFORM FRONT RACK

MIDTOWN BASKET

Designed to fit two bags of groceries, the Loring Front Basket is

sturdy and stylish. Its bamboo panels and lightweight aluminum

frame reliably holds 20 pounds of cargo. Features include an

integrated U-lock holder, light mount and removable side rails. The

basket attaches to mid-blade fork mounts. (U-lock not included)

Designed for when you need to carry large or unusually shaped

items, the Platform provides a sturdy deck where you can mount

your load. We incorporated attachment points on all sides, so

you’ll never be short on places to fix your straps. (Shown without

optional deck panels)

We modified the Loring basket, keeping its inner and outer

dimensions, dropping the upper rails and adding aluminum side

and deck panels. The Midtown basket is rim brake compatible

and its adjustable mounting can go to fork dropouts or mid-blade

mounts. (Shown without side and deck panels)

HYLAND REAR RACK

LORING REAR RACK

Lightweight aluminum tubing, stainless steel hardware and fully

adjustable upper stays make the Hyland rack a great addition to

any bike. Smart design features like a taillight bracket and easyrelease

lower tubing make it a necessary commuting accessory.

Aluminum tubing supports a bamboo slat and accommodates a

broad range of panniers. Designed for 26” wheels.

COMPONENTS AND ACCESSORIES

LORING SWEPT HANDLEBAR

Made from high-quality, lightweight aluminum, the Loring handlebar provides an optimal

blend of comfort and function. An 80º sweep and well-placed bends offer an upright, relaxed

riding position, while the flattened center section clears the way for front basket cargo.

Available in 31.8 and 25.4mm clamp area diameter.

CIVIA / ORTLIEB BACK-ROLLER CLASSIC PANNIERS

With the Hyland riding experience in mind, we’ve partnered with industry leader Ortlieb to offer Civia’s first

panniers. Made from tear resistant polyester fabric, the Back-Roller Classic features a roll closure, integrated

inner pocket, reflectors and a shoulder-carrying strap. A perfect fit for the Hyland rear rack, available in gray

or tan with custom Civia graphics.

ALDRICH HANDLEBAR

This aluminum handlebar provides you with a swept back hand position without

dramatically bringing the handlebar back to you. This combination makes for a great riding

position if you like sweep and don’t want to have to make stem changes to accommodate

your riding changes. Available in 25.4mm clamp area diameter.

15 CIVIA

COLFAX HANDLEBAR

The aluminum Colfax bar provides a subtle rise with a comfortable amount of sweep. As

with all Civia bars, there is plenty of room for grips, shifters, brakes and a bell. Available in

25.4mm clamp area diameter.
