The Weekender Archer is our longest-running model and stays true to our original intent; a bike that is easy-going enough for a casual ride but hearty enough to do so much more. If a ride around the neighborhood suddenly turns into a ride across town, the Weekender Archer has you covered. A ride to the next city? Next state? Next country? The Weekender Archer can (and has) done that too.
Built around our comfortable, tour-tested, and durable Chromoly steel Weekender frame, the Archer, is a bike with the potential to open up the cycling world for you. It is combined with nine easy-to-use gears, road-smoothing high-volume tires, the all-weather stopping power of disc brakes, and a commanding riding position thanks to Archer handlebars.
The Archer features the Weekender’s geometry that is built around 27.5 x 2.0” Continental tires, and also leaves plenty of space for compatibility with 700c wheels if you ever feel like changing it up.*
Gloss Black is available in Medium, Large, and X-Large.
Sage Green is available in X-Small, Small, Medium, Large, and X-Large.
