Video Review - 2013 Raleigh Roper Cross Bike

 2013 Raleigh Roper Cross Bike Great for Commuting, Trails, or 50 Mile Road Ride

 

More Specs and Information at http://www.raleighusa.com/archive/2012-steel-road/roper-12/

 

I have personally ridden this bicycle on a 50 mile road ride, and found that it responded very well and was quick and comfortable for that distance.  On the other hand, The Roper will do just fine on the gravel or other unpaved surfaces.



The 2013 Raleigh Roper is a 41-30 Chromaly Steel road bike. Some may call it a cross bike, even though it's more intended for road use. You can use it on some hard packed trails and gravel roads as well. The drivetrain is all Shimano 105, except for its FSA compact 50/34 crank. You've got a low enough gear to do some touring.

This bike can serve many different purposes, like: light touring, commuting, or cruising around the neighborhood. There is enough room in the frame to put fenders to keep your pants clean. It also has the mounts for a rack or Panniers.

Come to Ride-A-Bike at 116 NE. Court Square, Lincolnton NC. We want to let you test ride this bike, or any of our bikes that catches your eye. We'll be waiting for you!
