Affordable, Comfortable, Versatile: The 2013 Raleigh Revenio 3!

 This affordable bike is great for dedicated beginners, as well as intermediate level enthusiasts! A great option if you are looking to get into local biathlons or triathlons as well!

The frame is hydroformed aluminum which gives you a sporty yet comfortable ride. This is a bike that you can ride all day long and it won't beat you up like some more aggressive race geometry frames. It also has a carbon fork with an aluminum steer tube for decreased weight and increased comfort.

The shifters are Shimano 105 STI, redesigned for 2013. The big difference is that the inner cable housing goes under the bar tape for a cleaner look and to be more ergonomic.

The drivetrain has 20 speeds, with two rings up front and 10 gears in the rear cassette. The derailleurs on the 2013 Revenio 3 are also Shimano 105, guaranteeing compatibility and ease of use.

The front and rear brake calipers are also Shimano 105. Several manufacturers will drop the brakes down a level to save cost, but Raleigh keps the quality up even to the smallest details.

Come down to Ride-a-Bike at 116 Ne. Court Square in Lincolnton NC to take a test ride of this awesome bike!

See you soon!
