Raleigh Rush Hour for sale

For sale is a 59cm (XL) Raleigh Rush Hour, 2007 model. This is the second year Raleigh made the Rush Hour. I am 6'3.5” and I like riding this - however, I recommend you bring your own saddle.

Spokes Black stainless steel, 2.0mm*
Tires Panaracer for Messenger, and Continental Ultra GatorSkin*

I stopped riding the Rush Hour in September 2009 because I believe the bike's size and geometry was aggravating my pre-existing back pain. I have since been riding one of two bikes with a more upright riding position, while also using a pannier to hold my daily cargo. REMOVE

I have the original road drop handlebar and road brake levers (the kind with hoods). I also have bullhorns with both TT and cross levers. You'll have the opportunity to mix and match.

$400 email me steve@stevevance.net. I live in Bridgeport and you can test ride it any evening and any time on the weekend.
