A perfect embodiment of timeless classic design, the Caprice elegantly combines modern components with retro styling. Beautiful two-tone colour schemes, classic features and retro graphics hark back to the early days of cycling, when elegant and pleasure riding took precedent.
The classic steel twin tube shaped frame has relaxed geometry to give a comfortable riding position, with extra design features of internally routed brake and derailleur cables to reduce maintenance requirements and give your bike that neat classy look. The swept back steel handlebars allow a more upright and relaxed riding position plus comfort features have been carefully selected to make your ride as pleasant as possible including a traditional women's specific saddle and soft trekking grips with stitching detail, coloured brown to match the saddle. A steering limiter has been added to the bike to provide supported steering whilst you're riding and ensure that when your bike is resting on its propstand its front wheel doesn't tip to one side unexpectedly.
The Caprice's design has been inspired by heritage cycling and is a re-invention of a true Raleigh classic; its graphics are sealed under a clear, protective lacquer to make sure your bike is kept pristine no matter where your travels take you. The Caprice is equipped with beautiful two-tone finish colour matched steel mudguards, an aluminium propstand and a traditional ding dong bell included for safety and style.
Equipped with customarily sized 700c tyres in cream, chosen to be in keeping with tradition and selected specifically to compliment the bike's colour, with a tread pattern suitable for roads, paths and trails. Aluminium double wall wheel rims have been chosen for strength and the CNC braking surface provides a better surface for the blocks of the Aluminium V-brakes to brake against improving overall performance.
The simple to use 7 speed Shimano Revoshift gears with rotational shifters will allow you to enjoy relaxed trips into town and tranquil jaunts in the countryside for those summer picnics.
Available in a choice of two stand out colours; Mint and Purple.
