[REVIEW] 2014 Raleigh Misceo 2.0

2014 Raleigh Misceo 2.0 Trail Bike Will Impress You

The Misceo Trail 2.0 rolls on 700c wheels that have a center section patterned with minimalist knobs. They roll quietly and offer impressive traction on dirt. Of course, you can always upgrade the wheelset to something better, or even a custom job through our house brand No Gas wheels.

Flat bars offer a comfortable riding position, and they're the ticket when venturing off-road. The heads-up posture also makes it easier to be aware of the traffic on the road and other surroundings.

Having a suspension fork on this rugged city bike allows you to release your fear of potholes, bridge expansion joints, curb drops, railroad ballast, gravel roads, rumble strips, and singletrack shortcuts. Offering 63mm of coil-sprung travel and a lockout lever, the SR Suntour NCX fork is great for all of those purposes, but by no means is it a high-performance mountain bike suspension.

Oversized frame tubing also aids in the overall beefyness of this bike, and though the frame is aluminum allow, it is stiff and strong enough for sometimes scary city riding.

The Misceo Trail 2.0's mechanical brakes come in the form of Shimano 416 (with 160mm rotors) offer impressive stopping power and good modulation - in wet or dry conditions.

The drivetrain is made up of Shimano Alivio 3x9 (Deore rear derailleur) which offers plenty of gears for the average rider, even in hilly areas.
