The four bikes are designed for urban cyclists looking for a bicycle that avoids the hunched-forward position of road bikes.
The Mendota is designed for the urban cycling enthusiast biking for transportation and fitness on city streets and bike paths. The aluminum frame renders it lightweight and fast and it features a 27-speed Shimano drivetrain, compared to the 24-speed Monona and Wingra models. The Mendota features high-end racing components chosen to provide a smooth, fast, and comfortable ride while still remaining durable. While it features the same basic design as the Monona and Wingra, its premium components set it apart. It also includes quick shifters, light 700c Bontrager wheels with puncture-resistant tires and powerful Avid mechanical-disc brakes.
