2014 Raleigh Sojourn

Raleigh's Sojourn is a bike built for the open road and exploring the far side of every hill. Its renowned Reynolds chromoly frameset is strong, efficient, and compliant to smooth the road, while the classic Brooks leather saddle and matching bar tape ensure superb comfort on short jaunts and epic journeys alike. Short or long, this globe-trotting steed is ready for action with lightweight aluminum wheels and smooth-riding, tough-as-nails Vittoria Randonneur Cross tires that can handle pavement and dirt. A 27-speed Shimano drivetrain cruises over the hills, and Shimano disc brakes boast awesome all-weather stopping power. This superb touring rig comes with a host of thoughtful extras, such as custom metal fenders, and a rear rack.

I use this bike mainly for touring. It is a little heavy but once you get going its really not noticeable. Rack and fenders are nice. The Brooks saddle is awesome!

Comments:

Looking for a super lightweight fast road bike? This ain't it. Looking for a "touring road bike" that rides comfortably, can handle extra weight and still climb hills? This is it. I wanted & needed a road bike that could cover miles & miles and still be gentle on my aging arthritic back & knees. It's almost like having a suspension bike – but with no suspension because the longer wheelbase & smooth riding Reynolds 520 Butted Chromoly frame dampens road vibrations. Climb hills easily with the SRAM PG-950 9spd (11-34) cassette (rear cog) and the Shimano FC-R453 Octalink 30/39/50t crankset up front. Give the Brooks B17 Aged Leather Saddle about 200 – 250 miles to get "broke in" and it'll be the most comfortable saddle you've ever been on. You'll most likely have to tighten the leather draw strings. The Vittoria Randonneur 700x35c tires? Not a single flat despite living in the city with lots of broken glass & other road debris. In the "Tortoise and the Hare" game, I'm more of the tortoise. But I get there in style & comfort.
