TOP TEN BIKES - 2015 Raleigh Revenio 3 - A Lot of Bike for a Low Price


Whether you're chasing fitness goals or logging record miles, Raleigh's Revenio 3 makes it happen. 



WHY WE LIKE IT:
The hydroformed aluminum frame rides nearly as well as the more expensive Carbon Revenio frames. This Revenio 3 features the new 11 speed Shimano 105 drivetrain, carbon fork, FSA crank, and 700x25 tires for a comfortable ride. A lot of a bike for a low price.




The aluminum frame and carbon fork pair with an endurance-oriented, heads-up geometry so you can go farther, faster, and with more comfort. Fast spinning 700c Weinmann wheels come wrapped in grippy Kenda tires and are brought to life by Shimano's benchmark 20-speed 105 drivetrain. It boasts the light action, quick shifts and trademark durability perfect for seasons of riding. Top it off with a selection of great Raleigh parts, including a supportive Prologo Kappa saddle, and you've got a bike that's sure to please.
