Set your goal, throw a leg over Raleigh's Merit 1, and discover a whole new perspective on two wheels! The aluminum frame and fork are nimble and confidence-inspiring, with a light and fast ride. Paired with Weinmann wheels and Kenda's high-quality tires, this is the bike that wants to go up hill, down hill, and everywhere you can ride. Total control is right at hand thanks to Shimano's easy-to-reach 16-speed Claris drivetrain. And with a supportive saddle and components from Raleigh, you'll find yourself taking the long way home.
