The Raleigh Clubman model name goes back to the 1940’s when it was a steel road bike. Now, they’ve introduced a thoroughly modern and stunningly gorgeous Clubman Carbon.
It’s a disc brake bike with thru axles, color-matched full coverage fenders front and rear hiding 28mm skinwall Clement Strada LGG tires, and a Brooks Cambium saddle with matching cotton bar tape. It gets a mostly Shimano Tiagra group with a non-series polished double crankset and TRP Spyre brakes. Full internal cable routing, even for the front disc brake through the fork leg, keeps the focus on the beautiful sky blue paint with red and white accents.
It will fit up to 32mm tires without the fenders.
Hidden fender mounts sit above the cassette and disc brake rotor for optimum clearance and versatility.
Available now, retail is $2,299.
The Grand Vitesse is in the line for a second year and is a Reynolds 853 steel bike with carbon fork and modern endurance geometry and a full Ultegra group save for the brakes.
It will also fit up to a 32mm tire. Retail is $2,399.
The Super Course is a women’s specific 4130 steel bike that comes with the same Clement skinwall tires, Brooks Cambium saddle and matching bar tape.
Rack and fender mounts on the rear, plus fender mount tabs on the fork dropouts. Both it and the Grand Vitesse get tapered head tubes.
Retail is $999 with a Shimano Claris group. Sizes drop down to a 48 to fit even the smallest riders, up to a 56 in even size increments. Color options are this green, a dark blue and a light sky blue.
