Raleigh Merit Elite Road Bike 2016
Versatile. Comfortable. Dependable.
Bikes in the Raleigh Merit series are a progression beyond the customary road bike. Not a racer, but not a comfort bike. The Merit is more of a personal wing-man that is there for you through the good times of smooth, fresh tarmac but also has your back on the rough and crumbly, old forgotten highway as well. It is agile enough to dart around in traffic yet plenty stable for fast mountain descents. With cleverly designed frame features such as clearance for up to 32c tires and spec'd out with durable and reliable components, a Raleigh Merit puts fun, comfort, and versatility first.

Raleigh has been building some of the finest bikes for over 3 centuries. That makes them the longest continuously-operating bicycle manufacturer in the world. Raleigh as a brand has spanned some serious history and we know that doesn't happen as a result of delivering mediocre product. They create bikes with a purpose and an intent that is relevant to us, the customers, and how we are using and experiencing these mechanical wonders that are bikes. The first Raleigh models rolled out in 1885 England amongst the horses and steam engines of the time which brought increased mobility and freedom to many individuals. Raleigh, today, still develops their product around the idea that bikes are fun, convenient and practical.
