Making it just in time for the Sea Otter Classic was the 2013 Raleigh RXC Pro Disc Cyclocross Bike.

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).

2012 raleigh furley   2012 Raleigh Furley

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.
