Product Description

Details

Raleigh Strada 1 650B 2018

The Strada is a fast no-nonsense commuter/hybrid bike with up-to-the-minute high-volume 42mm-wide tyres that glide over potholed roads and rough tracks.

We consider the Raleigh Strada range as the current best-value replacements for our own Revolution bikes (which are not currently available). Here's why.

  • The 6061 aluminium alloy frame is strong, lightweight and true
  • The steel fork is lighter than any suspension fork and it will never require maintenance
  • Up-to-the-minute 650B alloy wheels built extra strong with double-wall rims and 36 spokes, and extra secure (bolted on rather than quick release)
  • Like a fair few of today's better bicycles, every Raleigh Strada is shod with 42mm wide 650B tyres which offer a perfect balance of speed and comfort for most road / light trail conditions, whether you're sprinting on smooth tarmac or negotiating rutted roads and Sustrans cycle tracks
  • To make them even more perfect, the tyres' reflective sidewalls help get you seen from all directions when shone upon by fellow road users' headlights
  • The frame and fork both come with the eyelets and clearance required to fit mudguards and pannier rack
  • Free fitting - order any extras such as mudguards with the bike and we will waive our standard fitting charge
  • Shimano EZ Fire 3x7 shifters are indeed proven for their smooth reliable action
  • The Shimano 48/38/28t chainset and 14-34 rear cassette offer a wide range of gears, whether you're climbing, downhilling or sprinting on the flat
  • Alloy V-brakes are sound, efficient and the easy to maintain
  • The Selle Royal saddle is light cushioned and comfortable
  • The riser bars offer a semi-upright 45˚ riding position, and deliver mountain-like easy-steering control
  • The traditional quill stem offers more height adjustment options than most clamp-on handlebar stems

Here's how Raleigh describe their Strada 1 650B
Versatility is the key to the design of the Strada range; whether you are commuting, riding for leisure or popping to the shops your Strada will get you there comfortably and quickly.

The Strada is designed with a fast, agile geometry and sports style riding position complete with adjustable height handlebars. The stripped back sports design and lightweight Aluminium frame means there's no excess weight to hold you back. However the Strada comes equipped with mudguard and rack mounts to allow you to customise the bike to suit your personal needs. Available in either an open frame or choice of colours in a crossbar frame and sold in a wide range of sizes the Strada 1 is built for versatility.

The 650b wheels with high profile tyres have been specially selected for this range to provide added comfort and cushioning while riding as well as increasing your speed. The 42mm wide tyres have a tread tailored to speed on smooth road surfaces and feature a reflective strip running around the rim of the tyre to help make sure you're seen and safe at night. The Strada is fitted with V-brakes to provide the stopping power and a Selle Royal Shadow+ saddle.

Equipped with 21 speed Shimano gearing with mega range feature which minimises the impact of steep hills by increasing the distance the rear wheel is turned for each pedal revolution and complete with Shimano's EZ Fire shifters to make switching between gears simpler the Strada range is built for speed.

How easy would it be to swap out the fixed bolted front wheel for a quick release? I throw my bike into a boot a lot and the slow release front wheel would make this much less convenient.
