Raleigh’s Roper cyclocross bike is here for 2015, with a twist. For 2015 Raleigh ditched drop bars in favor for a 31.8 riser bar with a Shimano Alivio 1×9 drivetrain. The Roper’s frameset has the same tested design: disc brakes, rack and fender eyelets, responsive geometry, and now it’s made with Reynolds 525 tubing. It’s fine-tuned as an ideal setup for an all weather, 12-month urban commuter. The 2015 Roper comes in at a new price of just $950. Stop by anytime for a test ride with either the Roper, or it’s 3-speed and singlespeed counterparts, the Tripper and Furley.
