    2015 Raleigh Willard

    WILLARD 2
    The Willard is our lightweight, gravel slaying, all conditions race bike. With the same geometry as our Tamland, only on an alloy diet, the Willard cares not for the weather report, because it is the weather report. With TRP Spyre dual actuated mechanical disc brakes, a Shimano 11 speed drivetrain, and Clement X'PLOR MSO 40c tires, you'll be grinning ear to ear whether you're climbing into the top 3 or having the best ride home of your life.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    Lightweight alloy frame designed for gravel
    Powerful TRP Spyre dual actuated mechanical disc brakes
    Clement X'PLOR MSO 40c tires give maximum cushion and traction in bumpy gravel
    Shimano 105 11 speed drivetrain
    Rack and fender mounts

    The downside from me buying this bike is (imo) the plain paint scheme.

    Really, paint is the downside. You sound like my wife.
    A garage full of steel frames means happiness.

    I saw they released the geometry specs and the 62cm frame seems too small for my 6'5 body.

    Just a heads up, I snagged one of these last week and it's a total hoot. The paint scheme is a total turd, but the price and component spec were right. I'm 6'2" with long long long legs and the 62cm is a touch cramped.

    The alumnium version of the Tamland. Very nice!

    Please give an update when you can. I'm very interested in the Wiillard and would love to hear how it works out for you.
