At last, from Holland, an affordable, ready to ride, simple, stylish low racer. A bike that is great for blasting around the lanes on a Sunday morning, long distance rides or competing in your local BHPC race. You might even win! The Raptobike Low Racer is front wheel drive, so it uses a very short chain and cables, saving loads of weight and getting the seat low without having the chain interfere with the front wheel when turning.
The oversized aluminum frame is light, stiff and strong. All frames are suited for V-brakes and disc brakes. The bikes aerodynamic position is fast, so speed comes naturally, however it is also adaptable and with minor add-ons you can make it suitable for touring and commuting.
The basic bike has an affordable price yet is finished with A-grade components by SRAM and Avid. The frame is suited for a range of gearing options such as 9 speed derailleur options and hub drives like Rohloff or Schlumpf drives. You can also fit a conventional rear rack for normal panniers or use specialist recumbent bags for touring.
