Product Details

Raleigh Strada 2 650B 2018 Hybrid Bike

This is the exciting new Raleigh Strada commuter hybrid bike upgraded with mechanical disc brakes and even more impressive Clement USH 650b x 42mm tyres.

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.

Upgrades from Raleigh Strada 1

  • Lighter weight, more cushioning, Clement USH 650b x 42mm tyres, as spec'd on a number of 4-figure bikes
  • Lighter weight, more shock absorbing CrMo steel forks over high tensile steel
  • The aluminium frame's internal gear cable routing creates a cleaner look
  • The Shimano 12-32 cassette gives you a wider range of gears
  • The rear cassette hub is intrinsically stronger than one that takes a screw-on freewheel
  • The wheels are quick release for lightweight convenience (faster fitting + no need to carry a wheel spanner)
  • Lighter weight alloy bars
  • The unthreaded steerer and clamp-on stem are also simpler and lighter weight
  • A stack of spacers enable you to adjust the bar height
  • Higher quality Shimano Altus rear derailleur
  • Perhaps best of all, the Strada 2 comes with mechanical (cable-operated) disc brakes

The Benefits of Disc Brakes

  • Moving the brakes from the mud and rain-attracting wheel rims to the relatively clean hubs makes for an improvement in the brakes’ all-weather all-conditions performance.
  • Disc brake pads are much harder so they last much longer. That's why disc brakes tend to need far less maintenance compared with rim brakes because they don't require such frequent adjustment to compensate for brake pad wear.
  • The wheel rims should also last much longer now that they are no longer being worn down by the brake pads.

Same as Raleigh Strada 1 650B 2018

  • 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
  • Shimano EZ Fire 3x7 gear shifters are indeed proven for their smooth reliable action and offer a wide range of gears, whether you're climbing, downhilling or sprinting on the flat
  • The Selle Royal saddle is cushioned and comfortable
  • The bars offer a semi-upright 45˚ riding position, and deliver mountain-like easy-steering control
