    New from Raleigh

    Unless this has been mentioned Raleigh has a nice Alfine 11 equipped bike. Best of all it has a Gates belt drive. While they bill it as an Urban bike all it really needs is a set of good off road tires and a fork. Misceo i11 looks to have a $1,750 MSRP.

    1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1992 Stumpjumpers. 1995 Waterford 1200, 1999 Waterford RSE, plus a garage full of steel frames.

    I like this one even better, but only for the drive train. I wish they would marry that stuff to some steel framesets. Good tubing, lighter gauge, and just tig it together. A working mans bike. That would be a winner for me. If I bought one of these I would have a hard time not moving all the good stuff to a UJB, or similar.

    I agree, Raliegh took a serious dive from their former glory days. They are making a serious comeback though, especially in the niche segments.

    Try checking out the Raleigh Tripper. It uses the Furley/Roper steel frame and fork and an IG hub. Their site is down this morning so I can't link to it.

    Actually, there is a nice review of the Tripper in Cyclocross forum.

    I built up a Furley with an alfine 8. works great using a Jtec shifter. by far the most fun I have had on a bike in years.

    Raleigh has some cool and unique models, and I really love the Misceo series as a quick urban bike.

    Wow! That Misceo i11 has the makings for a nice gravel/adventure bike. Throw on a Niner rigid fork and you would have a nice start. It sports a Happy Medium 700cx38c, but wonder if it could hand a 2.0 or 1.9 29er tire?

    Edit: to say they should have used the XXIX frame and it would have been a total winner with 440mm CS.

    For anyone that has a Roper/Furley/Tripper -
    What is the rear spacing?
    130 or 135?
    Thanks!

    I set up a friend's former SS bike in this configuration recently. The FSA Metropolis Patterson crank is pretty well made, abuse tolerant, and can work with a variety of bar shifter preferences. They offered a 130 BCD adapter this year so you can run a larger standard ring than the 28T stock, or to use a belt drive ring instead.

    Pretty sure it's 135. You could use a 29er disc wheel but the tire clearance is limited to about 37C.
