Raleigh has released a new steel bike called Furley for 2012. The Furley is a full chromoly steel, including the fork, with a BB30 bottom bracket. Larger BB standard was used to fill an unconventional bottom bracket that is custom-made by FSA in it to allow using standard dropouts at the rear.

Riders can have a geared bike simply by swapping in a standard BB30 bottom bracket and crankset and attaching a derailleur and cassette. Fenders and racks can easily be tackled by the custom rear dropouts, which have mounts for everything.

Designed for riders who prefer tougher and stronger bikes over standard commuters, the 2012 Raleigh Furley is ideal for many urban riders. During winter, riders can be in control without destroying the wheelset, thanks to the bold single-speed sports disk brakes and thicker tires for cobblestone streets.
