We used to call these bikes with the skinny wheels and down-turned handlebars ten speeds, or sometimes racing bikes. Today we simply refer to them as "road bikes". Road bikes are swift, elegant machines that can take you across town or across the country. They're pretty much just for pavement use, but ideal for long rides as they are very efficient and aerodynamic. A road bike is a good choice for touring, commuting, racing, or for the pure joy of performance. There's nothing like a road bike. Here's what we carry.
Raleigh Revenio 1.0
We present the Raleigh Revenio 1.0 as our first entry in our 2012 road bike lineup. Revenio means "the comeback" or "the return" in latin. For Raleigh it means they've returned to a more relaxed or less "aggressive" frame geometry. Translation: The Revenio is comfortable without sacrificing performance. The aluminum frame makes the ride light and lively. The Shimano 2300 drivetrain makes for positive and reliable shifts. We were impressed with the ride, and the value. We think you will be too.
Raleigh Capri 1.0
We present the Raleigh Capri 1.0 as our first womens' entry in our 2012 road bike lineup. Like the Revenio above, it's quite comfortable, built for a woman's physique. The aluminum frame gives it a light, lively ride. The Shimano 2300 drivetrain works great. Come take it for a test ride. We think you'll like it.
Jamis Satellite Sport
Next we give you the Satellite Sport. We're very excited to offer a steel bike at an entry-level price point. The majority of bikes you see these days are made of aluminum, so it's nice to have an alternative. The steel frame lends the Satellite a very smooth, very stable ride, and the Shimano 2300 components make for quick, accurate shifts. This is a great starter road bike. It's perfect for your first triathelon or for simply adding cycling to your fitness routine. Come give it a ride. See what you think. (Also available in sangria.)
Jamis Satellite Sport Femme
Not to leave out the ladies, we also give you the Satellite Sport Femme. We're very excited to offer an entry level steel bike in a women's model too. Like the men's model above, the steel frame and chromoly fork give it a smooth, stable ride, and the Shimano 2300 components work great. However, the Femme is designed for a woman's physique. The women's seat, narrower bars, and adjusted "geometry" make it more comfortable for women. Also available in sangria. (Why a Women's Bike?)
Jamis Satellite Comp
We're pleased to offer the Satellite Comp as our second entry in the steel road bike catagory this year. The steel frame dampens road vibration for a comfortable ride, but doesn't sacrifice any performance. It features Shimano Sora components, carbon fork, and a nice wheel set to make it fast. It's a great all around bike. Take it for a workout, ride with your friends on the weekends, or enter the occasional triathelon with it.
Jamis Satellite Comp Femme
Take the regular Satellite Comp, change the color, add a woman's seat, adjust the frame geometry to give it a lower stand-over height and shorter top tube, and you've got the women's Satellite Comp. Like its brother above, it sports a steel frame, Shimano Sora components, and a carbon fork. Come ride it. Feel the smooth, comfortabe, fast ride. (Why a Women's Bike?)
Jamis Ventura Comp
We've added the Jamis Ventura Comp to our lineup this year. We wanted to offer an aluminum bike in this price range, as well as something in steel. We found a bike we like a lot. The carbon fork, Shimano Sora components, and Mavic/Formula wheels give the Ventura Comp a fast, nimble, and smooth ride. It's amazing how much bike you can buy for the money these days. We were pretty much blown away with how well it rode for $975! Come give it a test ride. See if you agree.
Jamis Ventura Comp Femme
Not only is the bicycle beautiful, it's fast. The carbon fork, Shimano Sora components, and Mavic/Formula wheels give this womens bike a great ride. And of course the womens specific "geormetry" make it very comfortable. The Ventura comp Femme makes a great sport bike. Come try it. (Why a Women's Bike?)
Just a Couple Left for $1000
The Aurora is our favorite touring/commuter bike. We bring it back year after year. The relaxed geometry and steel frame give it a comfortable fit and a smooth ride. The Tiagra level components are reliable and long lived. The Aurora is a very stable bike and handles beautifully with a load. Naturally, it's set up to take front and rear luggage racks and comes with fenders. It's the perfect bike for touring, commuting, and for taking those long weekend rides.
Raleigh Revenio 3.0
The Revenio 3.0 sports an aluminum frame, carbon fork, and Shimano 105 level components. Raleigh's designed this bike to be both comfortable and fast with a slightly more upright riding position, and a carbon fork that trims the weight and gives the bike a very smooth ride. This bike is an outstanding value. It's rare to get components this good for this price. Come ride it. This bike will speak for itself.
We Only Got a Couple. $1500
We've added the Raleigh Roper to our road bike lineup this season. Think versatile here. Although designed as a cyclocross bike, it doubles as a fine touring or commuter bike. The steel frame and fork give the bike a smooth, stable ride. The disc brakes provide braking in all weather conditions, and the Shimano 105 components lend crisp, precise shifting. This is an exciting bike.
