Raleigh Sports Rebuilt Single Speed, 21"/53cm
The base of this build is a Raleigh Sports frame in a beautiful coffee brown finish, that is in very nice cosmetic condition. Originally this bike was a 3-speed with all steel components. The frames are very nice, made of lugged 20/30 steel, but the stock steel components really weigh down the frame. This one has been rebuilt with some nice upgrades including a freshly handbuilt alloy wheelset. The wheelset features alloy high flange hubs laced to double-walled alloy rims in the same 26x1-3/8" size as the original wheels. Sports a long reach stem and comfortable swept back handlebars which make the bike much more ride-able than the original stem/bar setup. Set-up as a coast-able single speed with a 46/17 ratio, perfect for cruising around the city. Racks and baskets can be installed for an additional fee. This bike is ideal for riders 5'6" to 5'10", give or take.
