2011 Raleigh One Way Steel Bike

2011 raleigh one way steel bike   2011 Raleigh One Way Steel Bike

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.
