Rutland Cycling staff visit the Raleigh Heron Show

   Words by Aaron Scott

A number of the team here at Rutland Cycling were recently invited to the Raleigh Heron Show. This event was an opportunity to see the new range of 2013 Raleigh bikes, parts and accessories. Here staff rider Mark Bailey aka Foxy (his adopted alias at Rutland Cycling) tells us a bit about his trip to one of the Worlds oldest cycling companies headquarters...

As we arrived at the Raleigh headquarters in Nottingham, it was quite exciting and felt like a well earned day out of the office.  It is probably one of the most exciting places to visit in the cycle trade, especially knowing all of the heritage that is synonymous with the Raleigh brand.

As we entered the main showroom it was wall to wall with bikes - covering every discipline of bike you could think of. Whether you're interested in Road Cycling, Mountain Biking, Dirt Jump or BMXing to name a few there was something there to be admired.

I'm a big fan of older generation bikes and specifically steel framed bicycles.  It was the heritage touring bikes section of the hall that first caught my attention.

They had a brand new TI-Raleigh steel framed road bike with a Campagnolo Veloce groupset to adore and marvel at. This bike is likely to be somewhat of a collectors item as only 125 have been produced.

This TI-Raleigh Steel framed road bike retails at £2000 and comes complete with Campagnolo Veloce groupset.

Once the excitement of the old school bikes had worn a little we started to see all that the room had to offer.

The Diamondback Full Suspension MTB range hit me next.  They were designed very well and the overall specifications of the bikes were great. The bikes were very well finished with quality components at all price levels.

The road bikes were amazingly light and well spec’d. On show was a Team Raleigh bike (as used by Team Raleigh) on display. Fellow colleague Graham took a shine to this one.

As I scaled the room, the hybrids and hardtail mountain bikes kept catching my eye.  The range of sports hybrid is particularly good this year.  They look good and if you go for the mid range to top end models then you get some really good components at reasonable price.

This range is sure to suit the commuter market that is very popular at the moment.

Haibike

Raleigh announced in 2012 that it would be the exclusive distributor of German brand Haibike’s performance range of road, mountain and pedal assisted bikes.

Raleigh dedicated a room to the newly purchased Haibikes at Heron Show.  On show were some very well styled bikes with all the gear and great colour coding themes on most models.  These really do stand out as great looking bikes.

Haibike's electric bike has a patented design and even comes with a Fox shox fork!

After a look around at the new Haibike bikes on display we all had a good fill at the buffet that was supplied by Raleigh. After lots of sandwiches, biscuits and crisps and a cup of tea or two (thanks Raleigh!) we went for a meander round the P&A and Dahon folding bikes area.  Lots of new products were on hand to be seen including a great range of Uvex helmets.

Summary

The Raleigh Heron Show was a great day out for the myself and a number of colleagues and an opportunity to see lots of new products.

I hope I'll be seeing plenty of Raleigh bikes at the trail centres and on the great road routes in and around the Rutland area this season.
