Raleigh Airlight


A Happy Wanderer
Lancashire coast
I'm looking to move up from a hybrid to a road bike, and was in the LBS today eyeing up a Giant defy when I saw a Raleigh Airlite for sale at just over 500 notes. After looking at the Raleigh website, I think that it must have been the 200 as it had the 9 speed Sora gearset.
I've seen a lot of good comments on here about the Giant, but anyone know anything good or bad about the raleigh?
it ws the last in stock so I'll need to decide sharpish!


Found in the Yorkshire hills ...
I've got an Airlite 100 - which has the 2300 groupset.

It's an upright ride and is solid/steady if not spectacular. Everything works OK, although the brakes on the 100 aren't great and I've changed the saddle already. Bike Radar liked it: http://m.bikeradar.com/gear/category/bikes/road/product/review-raleigh-airlite-100-11-41657

Wiggle are selling the 200 at £487.50 http://www.wiggle.co.uk/raleigh-air...leigh-Raleigh_Airlite_200_Sora_2012-Red/White
