Raleigh had an amazing lineup for 2013 out at the Sea Otter Classic. One bike we showed you was the RXC Pro Disc Cross, and now we showcase the Tripper, Furley and Roper.

The 2013 Raleigh Tripper, Furley and Roper are not just your typical steel cross bikes, but a great introduction to the sport. You can also use them as a daily commuter.

Known as the Landlord series, the Tripper, Furley and Roper share the same steel frame, but each is unique by its drivetrain.

The 2013 Furley is a single speed and the Roper uses gears, both models come with drop bars.

The new model added to the group, the Tripper features a 3-Speed internal hub, one piece bar, headset and stem combo.

Specific MSRP wasn’t known at the time, but Raleigh said they should be around $850 for the Furley, $1000 for the Tripper and $1400 for the Roper….

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.
