RAVEN - Built for smooth, stable SPEED

The Raven is FAST! Now with 2, count them, one, two, 700c wheels!
The Raven, now sporting dual 700c wheels, is the smooth, stable flagship of the CGR line. Long and stable and built for speed with top-shelf components. The 700c front wheel bridges gaps and bumps to dramatically smooth out the ride and its size maintains your momentum as well. And nobody minds carrying just one size of inner tube! The frame is built tough without being heavy (the whole bike weighs just 32 lbs.) and it efficiently transfers power to the rear wheel. The brakes are customizable to either disc or v-brakes, so your fast bike can be converted to tour. The low crank height and wide range of seat adjustability give this bike the most accomodating cockpit in the industry- it fits up to 50" X-seams. This is more than the most comfortable bike in the store, it's one of the fast ones!
Fill your water bottle, turn off the cell phone, and hit that long, quiet road you've been dreaming about.
This machine is built to chase horizons and breezes alike.
