    New Raleigh Rush Hour Pro and 29er.

    I stopped by my LBS today and happened to be there while the Raleigh rep was around. I couldn't find any information here or online, but Raleigh will be releasing a new a track bike soon, the Rush Hour Pro. It's an "official" track bike and I was told will retail for around $1500. I didn't get a chance to check out the components, but it had a nice Mavic wheelset....

    I did get to try out their new 29er though. Very simple bike, looked to be a steel frame w/ disc brakes. I was told it's supposed to retail for about $750-800.

    I'll try and snap a few pics tomorrow.

    SS or geared? If SS, EBB, sliding dropouts, or track ends? Avid mechanical brakes? NEED DETAILS. <smiley face>

    I'll get the details today. I was in a hurry so I really only took it for a quick spin around the parking lot and hopped off.

    Why, are you giving it away? If not, this post belongs in the Marketplace Forum, where you can post if you are a contributing member. 'For Sale' posts are not permitted in the general forums.

    Thanks, Lala, moderator.

    That looks pretty sweet. I wonder how the weight compares to the Redline.

    The Rush Hour Pro. Mavic wheelset w/ bladed spokes. FSA carbon fiber cranks (not the solid ones). Looks nice overall.

    The 29er. It has removable vertical dropouts (so you can attach a derailleur hanger) and an eccentric bottom bracket. Curved (wishbone?) seat and chain stays. Sorry for the terrible pictures angles. They had it hanging.

    Oh yeah... the welds say it all. Heh, didn't even notice the wheel cutout - that's actually kinda cute, gussets or no.

    They should have busted out the old team color scheme for the Rush Hour and made the Pro that matte grey. It would have worked better with the chunky look of that frame and the black wheels and cranks.
