    Raleigh 6.5 Detour?

    Just bought a 2008 Raleigh 6.5 Detour, new in the box, full new warranty.
    No seat.

    LBS found it in the store room, they thought it was an empty box for the
    last couple years, it was behind a bunch of other stuff.

    I think I got a great deal.

    Less than this one:

    Any one else riding one?

    For an '08 you should not have paid much more than $300.

    I paid less than $400 with the tax. I did get the two free tuneups the first year and one a year
    after that for as long as I own the bike. That includes wheel truing as well. That could add up
    if I keep the bike for a long time.

    I did a couple test rides, but now it is raining and I have to wait to ride for a few days. I am
    keeping the old Trek for every day riding and this one is for the long rides on the week ends.
