It is a Giant Toughroad SLR 2, one of the best hybrids that any of the big bike companies has released for many a year.

I'd love to see the same thing with thru axle (at least on the fork), and based on a 650bx47 tire.
However does wheel/tire weight make that big of a difference with 4 loaded panniers? maybe not, but for then general 1 rear trunk bag type riding I think yes. plus I am 5'8" almost 9 but nope.

That's what they are. They are like gloves that stay on the bike. You get easy access to the shifters and brakes from inside them. And your hands come out of them easily so you're not locked to the bike.

Here's an example. Check out one of the photos that shows an x ray view of them.

bar mitts or "pogies". my 1st year w them. they're kinda awkward looking in bike photos but they are quite useful. started testing them this fall on cool days w/o gloves. then as it got cooler I started using them with light gloves. recently I used them with lobster gloves during a very cold ride in a blizzard & they are wonderful. this past Saturday I used them for 2.5 hrs at 30F with just light gloves



I also have them on my road bike



these are the models I bought and am happy with

and these are the lobster style gloves I referenced. been thinking about them for years & this was the year I was willing to splurge on them

Raleigh makes great bikes. I've been very close to buying a couple of them over the years. Very cool Redux there.

I've got a 15 year old Raleigh mountain bike. It was on their low end spec wise when I bought it.

It's still running strong today. Enough that I'm fixing it up to give to a friend who's just starting to ride.

Biggest problem on the bike is that the paint is scratched up a bit and I had to take apart and rebuild the rear brakes. Not bad after 15 years and a few thousand miles.

Frame's in great shape. Shifters and derailers all work fine.

And again...this was a low end bike when I got it. This isn't some super high grade bike you'd expect to last forever.

So I second the claim that Raleigh makes a decent bike.

My 2016 Sirrus with a few changes pulled 4 1/2 lbs off her and actually rides quite nicely.

Thanks. Replaced the stock triple with the single ring on an Ultegra crank. (incl the Ultegra BB replacing the stock)
Stock bomb proof tires for Vittoria Graphene 700*28
Stock saddle for Toupe.
The crank and the tires were the big players for weight savings. Both those were super heavy. The ride quality improved dramatically with the tire swap.

BTW I've seen the 18 FXS 6. They did a really nice job with that bike. Solid choice.

Hi to you all out there.
I am showing my latest build from a naked frame after having bought and built Road Hybrids over the last 15 years or so.
It is based on a 50cm Bianchi Via Nirone7 Alu Carbon and is running on a 10spd Campagnolo Veloce Cassette with Flat-bar Veloce levers + a Triple Stronglight on 140mm Thorn cranks.
The wheels are Mavic Aksium Race on Mavic Aksium cartridge hubs with bladed spokes.

The 140mm Thorn cranks were sourced after I had undergone total left knee replacement in November 2007 at the age of 62yrs young as I could not achieve the full circulatory action when pedalling.
I actually have three complete sets + additional rings as I also ride regular road bikes.
