A classic Raleigh Supercourse frame set in red with white panels and chromed legs. Fully rebuilt as an everyday single speed. Utilizing the K.I.S.S. motto (Keep It Simple Stupid), this little whip is a perfect partner to rolling city adventures.
52cm makes it a great fit for someone sized between 5’2″ and 5’7″.
Raleigh M-40 Hybrid. 17.5″ commuter bike. Sized for a rider between 5’5″ and 5’10”. Refurbished with new wheels, tires, drivetrain, shifter/levers, bar, saddle, brakes.
Pedal Revolution built up this classic Raleigh Grand Prix frame set with new parts transforming it from a 10 speed of yester-year to a perfect contemporary city bike.
New bottom bracket and headset started it off, followed by our favorite chrome Sun M13/sealed bearing wheel set. We ditched the old down tube shifters for a easier to reach Suntour ratcheting stem shifter set to handle gear changing duties.
Next a comfortable upright handlebar matched to Shimano brake levers with real cork grips.
For reliable stopping power in a long reach caliper we went with the Dia Compe top pull brake set. Panaracer Pasela tires, some white housing, and a riveted saddle for a little flair and its good to go.
