During this month and the next, Raleigh will be taking its dealer show on a UK tour, showcasing some of the latest bikes and accessories from its 2012 range.
A selection of over 40 Raleigh and Diamondback bikes will be available to view, including the ever popular AT10 MTB and two new price point models from Diamondback – the wallet-friendly 29-inch Peak 29r at £450, and the Response, which comes in at £500 with a full Deore groupset and Rock Shox XC28 forks. Also available for demo rides are the latest range of Raleigh electric bikes.
Raleigh’s parts and accessories range will also be on show on tour, including: Meqix pumps and accessories, Dare 2b clothing, Moon lights, MOA team clothing, Unior bike tools, Hermanns grips, Trion:Z ionic bands, Motorex lubes and care products, Big Wipes cleaning products, Outland MTB parts, RSP road parts, RSP lights, Avenir luggage, Quad disc brakes and Dahon folding bikes.
“We’re really excited about our new bikes and product ranges for 2012," enthused Raleigh UK sales director Phil Rickaby. "There’s been loads of interest already from dealers at our recent Heron show and this series of roadshows gives us more opportunity to showcase our products to a wider range of customers.
“We’ll be offering some great incentives in 2012 to reward dealer loyalty, from our free iPad2 or 22-inch LCD TV deal to extended credit terms and exclusive order discounts.
“2012 is a massive year for Raleigh. Not only is it our 125th anniversary, marking our status as one of the world’s oldest bike companies, but we’re also working on some exciting projects and fantastic new bike designs for 2013.”
