The 2014 Raleigh Roper Serves Many Different Ride Styles

Cyclocross-ready and commuter-friendly, the 2014 Raleigh Roper Bike offers a smooth ride.


The Roper stands apart from the crowd as being not just capable, but excelling at a lot of types of riding. We recommend it as a 12-month, rain-or-shine commuter bike, but the Roper is at home in the woods, bike bath, or in your first cyclocross bike. It’s a fast, fun bike with a smart selection of components. If you need another bike for either light touring, commuting, or to take the wear and tear off a higher-end bike, give the Roper a test ride. You’ll find reason to love it.

— Butted steel frame supplies a smooth ride while remaining responsive; BB30 bottom bracket design increases stiffness for improved power-transfer
— Shimano 105 shifters and derailleurs supply dependable, responsive shifts
— FSA Gossamer Pro compact crankset is paired with a Shimano 105 11-28 cassette for 20 wide-ranging gear combinations to handle any terrain
— Bar-top Tektro RL721 brake levers give you braking control when you're riding on top of the bars; 105 integrated levers let you brake when you're in the drops
— Hayes CX5 mechanical disc brakes deliver weatherproof braking for all kinds of conditions, such as rain, mud, sand or grass — Schwalbe CX Comp tires boast a fast-rolling center section and aggressive outer edges for cornering control
