Summary of Reviews
We have read all expert and user reviews on the Raleigh Redux 2. In summary, this is what cyclists think.
19 reasons to buy
- Tektro Hydraulic disc brakes offered all-weather stopping power at a low price-point.
- The modern 1x drivetrain was simple, easy to maintain and great value.
- A 9-speed 11-34 cassette and 40 tooth chainring deliver appropriate gearing for city riding and hill-climbing.
- Fat, 27.5 x 47c tires provided impressive comfort and low rolling-resistance on rough roads, as well as cushioning, grip and resilience in the face of potential punctures.
- The all-aluminum frame was reported to be stiff, while dampening shock and offering a good weight to strength ratio.
- Mountain-bike inspired geometry from Raleigh’s ‘Tokul’ influences the Redux’s MTB-inspired angles, while sporting a steeper head-tube angle for urban visibility in traffic. The riding position was described as comfortable.
- While performing well as a suburban commuter, the Redux’s versatility sees it tackling dirt paths and rail-trails equally well.
- Experts described the Redux’s ride quality as quiet, smooth, stable and confidence-inspiring, while steering was well-balanced.
- The Redux was described as relatively lightweight.
- Alloy platform pedals are stock, which is a level above the usual plastic at this price-point.
- Lock-on grips added to secure handling.
- Added extras impressed; including a chain-catcher and a bash-guard to keep pants grease-free.
- A beefy 35mm bar and stem clamp-interface offers stiffness and strength usually found on higher-end bikes.
- On the neon-chartreuse colorway, paintwork and reflective logos made the Redux highly visible.
- Customers described packaging as high-quality.
- More than one customer found assembly to be easy and straightforward.
- The Redux presented good value, as regards the quality of components.
- Fittings and eyelets are provided for ample racks and fenders.
- Internal cabling kept things clean and neat.
6 reasons not to buy
- One expert felt that the Redux lacked the sharp and precise handling that gave other urban bikes a whippy city agility.
- The Redux’s seatpost and wheels are fastened with quick releases, making them easy to steal.
- Wide bars proved suitable for shorter commutes, but less comfortable on longer rides.
- For one rider, a brake lever snapped. Their chainring also bent, under what was described as ‘normal cadence’.
- An ungreased bottom bracket disappointed one customer.
- The Redux’s saddle wasn’t comfortable for all riders.
