2013 Raleigh RXC Pro Disc Cyclocross Bike
Making it just in time for the Sea Otter Classic was the 2013 Raleigh RXC Pro Disc Cyclocross Bike.
Since it was short notice and Raleigh wanted a complete build, they had to throw on regular Shimano Disc Brakes and not the new CX Brakes (which will come with retail version).
The frameset is full carbon, with the frame weighing around 1100 grams. The change from last years RXC Pro and 2013 is the addition of disc brakes (of course) and tapered headtube (2012 featured a straight headtube).
Also upon release, the 2013 RXC Pro Disc comes with the Shimano Di2 build, integrated brakes if you wanted to change to mechanical shifters down the road and press fit bottom bracket which can be converted to single speed.
Available as a complete or frameset. The complete Raleigh 2013 RXC Pro Disc will retail between $5500 – $6000 with the frameset around the $2500 benchmark. Releasing late July to early August 2012.
