2018 Raleigh Detour 2
If it’s been years since you rode and you want to give it another go, or you’ve wanted to try riding but opted out because you thought bikes were uncomfortable, the Detour 2 will change your mind and give you confidence on two wheels. Soon you’ll be rolling out the garage at a moment’s notice to hit the park with your kids, going for a pedal on the bike path just for the fun of it, and transporting yourself to school or work quickly and comfortably. This bike prizes comfort with a focus on function, delivering the best of both worlds—a comfortable upright riding position plus narrower tires and larger rims for efficient, longer distance city riding and commuting.
Made with a rack and fender-ready aluminum frame and fork, the Detour 2 is lightweight yet prepared to haul both you and your gear. The Shimano Rapid Fire Plus 8 Speed trigger shifters offer 24 gears without ever having to move your hands, and the spring-loaded comfort saddle, no slip pedals and comfort grips will keep all your contact points with the bike comfy and happy. Distance, durability, comfort, quality and great value all come together in the Detour 2.
Ready Ride bikes are shipped 95 percent assembled. Typical bike assembly is time-consuming and requires technical know-how. Ready Ride reduces the time and skill needed for the final, four-step assembly.
