Included in the new line of bikes for women released by Raleigh Bicycles for 2012 is the Capri. Like the 2011 model of Capri, the new version gets the same geometry and a full carbon frame and fork. The four 2012 Raleigh Capri Womens Road Bikes are all available in 45, 49, 52, 54, and 56cm.
Ideal for beginners is the Capri 1.0. This starter model comes with Shimano 2300 8-speed. A step up from the 1.0 is the Capri 2.0 that comes with 8-speed. However, the 2.0 is still not with the mainstay of 10-speed and it features Shimano Sora 9-speed and FSA cranks.
With the same aluminum frame and fork, the Capri 3. 0 has a downgrade on parts to Shimano 105 10-speed for the majority of the drivetrain. The Capri 4.0 has a carbon fork with an alloy steerer, hydroformed aluminum frame, and except for brake calipers, full Shimano Ultegra 10-speed.
