Improve your commute with Raleigh’s Mesika 3.0. This rugged, lightweight aluminum frame with a steel fork is fast, tough, and tackles city streets, country roads, and gravel paths with ease. The 700c wheels are equipped with wide, puncture-resistant tires and smoothly roll over whatever’s in your path. Shimano roller brakes offer minimal-maintenance and all-weather speed control, and with the Shimano Nexus 7-speed internal hub and Gates belt drivetrain, the Mesika will take you anywhere, through nearly any weather, in clean, smooth-shifting silence. A great selection of sturdy Raleigh components and a supportive Selle Royal Look-In saddle complete the bike, ensuring that you'll be comfortable no matter how long the ride is.
Internal hub gearing is a gearing system built into the rear wheel hub. It allows you to shift at any time, even when not pedaling, like at a stop sign. Because the majority of parts are housed within the hub, the gearing mechanism is protected from weather and grime, and therefore requires almost no maintenance. Plus, with less external parts than a derailleur system, you’ll get consistently smooth, reliable shifts.
