Details

Let your creativity run wild aboard Raleigh's versatile Roper! Combine the sweet ride of a chromoly frameset with cyclocross geometry and you have a ride that's ready for gravel-road exploration, all-weather commuting, and the occasional 'cross race. Wherever you pedal, the Shimano 105 drivetrain with FSA easy-spinning cranks give you the gearing you need to scale steep grades and power along the flats. Finishing out the build are wide Kenda tires, semi-aero Weinmann rims, and powerful Hayes disc brakes that pull it all to a stop. Other details that let your imagination run wild include fender, water bottle, and rack mounts.

Comments:

I live in Madison, WI, and use my Roper to travel 6 miles to school, and I do it with ease, even with climbing Capitol hill on E Wash. My bike is fitted with both a rack and fenders, and it is the perfect commuter bike for me. I am able to keep up with traffic on slopes and most flat areas, and the disc brakes make it really easy to stop even in rain, and if you're traveling 35+ mph down a hill, you need to be able to stop quickly Everything on this bike is smooth, shifting, pedaling, braking, nearly no noise. The only con I really have is it's a "tight" bike, and so the toe straps hit the front fender if I pedal while in a tight turn.
