The Buyer's Guides are out! And Raleigh has a nice showing in Bicycling Magazine's 2007 annual Buyer’s Guide. Actually, we hit 8 categories of the 14, one of those being a two-page spread featuring the Mojave 8.0. David L’Heureux, writing about the Mojave, offered this praise: “The very essence of being a recreational rider means you want more than just a mountain bike. And it is the Mojave 8.0’s versatility that makes it a true winner in our eyes.”

VeloNews and Bicycling’s sister (or brother) magazine, Mountain Bike, also put out their guides. In the track category, the Rush Hour Pro sits confidently in VeloNews on the same page as LOOK's $9000 496 frameset, a pretty nice juxtaposition. The Raleigh Rowdy takes best bike honors in the Kid’s category in Mountain Bike.

A perfectly timed seven-page Coasting article titled “The Revolution Will Be Simplified” is in the current Bicycling Magazine and compliments the line of Raleigh Coasting bikes now hitting your dealers floors nation-wide. This article explains Shimano’s concept of "Coasting" and how it stems from the desire to reunite people that haven’t touched a bike since their childhood with the fun and exhilaration of riding. The Raleigh Coasting bike was featured in the article with a great title page photo and a "lifestyle" shot.
