Summary of Reviews
We have read all expert and user reviews on Raleigh Rush Hour. In summary, this is what cyclists think.
6 reasons to buy
- Reports of the Rush Hour describe it as a generally comfortable ride.
- The Rush Hour comes equipped with 28mm tires, with clearance allowing for something even fatter. Wider tires coped better with treacherous urban conditions on broken ghetto streets.
- Chain tensioners come pre-installed on the Rush-Hour’s frame, which isn’t common.
- The bike arrives with basic assembly tools.
- It’s not an elite ride, but for the cut-rate pricing, a number of owners deemed it great value.
- The quality of the multi-coat paint job impressed owners.
6 reasons not to buy
- Rims were painted. This coat was removed when brakes were applied.
- The Hi-Tensile frame was noticeably heavy to some riders.
- Some quality control issues arose. These included a damaged fork dropout and a front wheel with a protruding seam that interrupted the operation of the brake pads on the rim.
- The Rush Hour features true track bars, with their signature pronounced curve. Because of this, a number of owners complained of having to install brake levers centrally, next to the stem. Most chose to replace them with flatter bars.
- Brake pads received criticism for their poor stopping power.
- Mid-range componentry sometimes exhibited poor quality; a freewheel slipping and chainring bolts snapping are amongst examples.
