Raleigh 2016

Hey Guys ,

Take a look at this Raleigh Lineup for 2016. Some look pretty interesting.

$2400 for a Campy equipped repop Carlton. Nice bike but probably a tough sell at a US bike shop.

You gotta like the "Heritage of Real British Tradition" on a brochure that's half Japanese and uses a .jp url. Shameless!

There are some interesting looking bikes in that lineup...I wonder if that is the 2016 lineup for the US as well?

Enjoyed the peek at what Raleigh is offering for 2016. Wonder how much different the U.S. cat will differ from the Asian one. Or for other markets as well.

Crawling around the attic looking for Thanksgiving decorations led me to find the 2011 Raleigh cat. Good reading there too.

Thanks !

Club Special appears to be a Japan-only model. L'Eroica-worthy!

Cheaper than most Rivendell builds.

And I don't know what using Japanese has to do with "British tradition."

Bianchi has done a 'white roads' L'Eroica bike. Other brands I have viewed online show a bike or two with DT shifters.

Is it a trend? Inquiring minds want to know the answer.

While they look cool all shiny and bright I wonder what the tubesets are? If not top-o-the-line then overpriced.
With apologies for not reading the details in the catalog.

edit: Not to move away from Raleigh - but here is "Masi" steel for 2016.
A Gran Criterium with lugged R525, Athena 11 drivetrain, Veloce brakes + tan sidewalls to finish off = a $2720 price.
Masi Bikes


For $2800 you can get a real keeper, near mint. IMHO

I see some 531, some 631, some 520, some unspecified cro-moly, some aluminum, some carbon.

The ones we'd be interested in are mostly 531.

Raleigh USA has an almost completely different lineup, so I wouldn't get too excited about these Japan-only bikes (unless you want to pay shipping from Japan.)

And if I were paying shipping from Japan, I'd get a custom frame from someone like Toyo.

That said, Raleigh's Japan lineup has some cool neo-retro stuff.

You could buy a Japan-only model on Rakuten and ship it to the states via Tenso. You would face a duty on it of course but a nice bike like that I guess the premium would be justified.

Everyone makes their own justifications, but I'd want a more special bike than a new Raleigh if I were going through that cost and trouble to buy and ship from Japan. There are lots of amazing framebuilders in Japan, and they're way into retro. You could get a lugged or fillet brazed custom for about the same price as a "Raleigh" with no UK connection.

But these are cool bikes, for production Raleighs.
