Raleigh Spirit 3 Speed Traditional Bike

From the Raleigh Classic series of traditional bicycles the Spirit might be something you seem to be familiar with, borrowing a little traditional Dutch bikes and little from traditional British bikes. The Spirit combines the features of low step frame, an enclosed drive train and a front basket, with modern alloy rims, lightweight aluminium frame, powerful alloy V brakes and Sram i-Motion3 3 speed indexed gears. Always a willing partner whether it's an occasional jaunt to the shops or your daily commute, the Spirit comes equipped to meet your needs with full steel mudguards, traditional front wicker basket, swept back bars and a comfy ladies saddle.
