Raleigh Phase II

It’s not the first brand that comes to mind when you think, “full suspension mountain bike”, but our November Bike of the Month fits the bill without breaking the bank. This Raleigh Phase II has a double butted aluminum frame, 3×9 SRAM X-7 trigger shifters, and 26 x 2.25″ tires. Featuring an upgraded RockShox Recon fork and a Hayes HFX-9 carbon disc brake system, the 17″ frame will best fit a rider standing 5’6″ to 5’9″. If the weather gods crack a smile in the foothills, we’ll be running laps on Peavine for months to come; and priced at $450, when they do the same in the mountains, you’ll have enough saved for that Rose pass, too.
