If leaving the car, fuel bills, and endless traffic behind sounds like music to your ears, then Raleigh's Detour 5.5 is sure to please. The light aluminum frame features nimble geometry to zoom around the streets, and fast-rolling 700c wheels wrapped in tough commuter tires make short work of your trips to work, to the store, and to meet friends for dinner. A wide-range, 24-speed Shimano drivetrain has the gears you need to easily get your gear across town, while powerful disc brakes offer effective stopping power no matter the weather. The Detour 5.5 also comes loaded with thoughtful extras, such as custom metal fenders to keep you clean and dry and a sturdy rear rack to carry all your things.
