Sizing runs tall

Review by PDXBiker
Overall Quality

Great bike, but Raleigh bikes run tall. I'm a long legged 5'9", so I ordered the Large bike, which is supposed to fit 5'9' - 6'0". But this bike is so tall that my 6'2" son can't even ride it. His toes barely touch the ground when the seat height is at its lowest. Just FYI, Raleigh bikes run very tall.

Excellent Commuter/Fitness/Path Bike

Review by BW
Overall Quality

I bought this to commute to work, about 13 miles round trip with several steep hills. The Shimano road group gear set is a huge step up from my last "hybrid" bike which had a Shimano mountain bike set. I typically take a longer ride on the weekends, like 18 to 22 miles, and this bike is completely up to the challenge and comfortable doing it. This bike is very well made, light and responsive. This is a ton of bike for the money. Compare this to $900+ bikes at the local bike shop. You'll still be ahead with the Raleigh!
