Raleigh Sherwood 2019 Womens Bike
Raleigh is arguably one of the most recognised bicycle companies in the world. Dating back to its UK inception the late 1800's and producing childhood dream bikes such as the Chopper and Burner, they have a rich history and have played a major part in the world of cycling. Their current models have a certain nostalgic aura about them and they are of excellent value and quality.
Paying homage to storied British cycling, the Sherwood combines modern components with a distinct retro look. The beautiful colour finish, classic details and retro graphics will take you on a ride down memory lane when elegance and pleasure were at the forefront.
The iconic steel frame has a relaxed geometry to provide a comfortable riding position with extra design features such as internally routed brake and derailleur cables which not only make looking after your bike a doddle but makes for a neat and tidy finish. The bikes overall composition allows for a more upright and relaxed riding position as well as added comfort features such as a comfortable Selle Royal Sky Kennebeck saddle and soft detailed grips that match the colour scheme.
The graphics featured on the Sherwood are inspired by a proud heritage and humble beginning in Nottingham, they have been sealed under a protective lacquer to make sure that the bike stays in perfect condition no matter where your ride takes you.
The imitation bamboo basket is a perfect addition to this stylish bike and adds a traditionally practical element in line with the bikes overall design and feel. The Sherwood is fully equipped with colour matching mudguards, aluminium prop stand and a traditional Dutch bell.
