Electra shares a new collection called the “Men’s Attitude Collection”. On show was the Mulholland 3i, Zarape 3i, and Lakester 3i, all new for 2011.

The graphics of each 2011 Electra– Mulholland 3i, Zarape 3i, and Lakester–are inspired by those on classic cars, or hot rods.

The 2011 Mulholland 3i, derived from American muscle with its sweeping lines and bold colors, will be available Spring 2011 for $799.99.

Zarape 3i takes on a lowrider look. In the lowrider world of restoration, many enthusiasts focus mainly on restoring a car’s running gear and external cosmetics, but when it comes time to change the upholstery, a Mexican blanket does the job. Car pinstripes were applied in various places across the frame in orange, while the main color used is a matte petrol. MSRP is $799.99, and will hit Electra retailers Spring 2011.

Last but not least is the 2011 Electra…

Another addition to the steel series bikes from Raleigh is the 2011 One Way. The 2011 Raleigh One Way looks like a road bike, but is built for commuting.

The Raleigh 2011 One Way is made of steel, to be precise Reynold’s 520 butted Chromoly dropouts, and 4130 classic chromoly cross forks. Chain tensioners also come intact with the frame.

Produced as a singlespeed, but the 2011 One Way comes equipped with SRAM Torpedo fixed/freewheel hub, so all you will need to do is add cog. Combine the 16t SRAM with the SR Suntour 42t and you have a pretty quick singlespeed.

At the time of writing, a retail price is not known, but the only colorway the 2011 Raleigh One Way will release in is dark crimson red.
