Size Guide: 2014 Misceo Series

Frames

We revamped the 2014 Misceo line for improved handling and comfort. We managed to achieve this by simply lowering the bottom bracket. The result was an overall lower center of gravity which increases the standover clearance, improves stability and produces a more confident ride. For additional rider comfort, this year we’ve introduced the Raleigh Sizing System that is based on an exhaustive database of bike fittings. This system is used during the development of new geometries allowing both customers and sales staff to determine the best size for the rider quickly by referencing a size decal on the bike.

RELIABILITY, DURABILITY, AND SIMPLICITY

Lookin Saddles

Lookin Saddles

The majority of the Misceo models feature the new Lookin saddles from Selle Royal. These saddles feature Royalgel, a proprietary ingredient that has been shown to reduce contact pressure by up to 40% providing the maximum level of comfort through better weight distribution.These saddles are also made with Strengtex, an extremely durable material that is able to repel scratches, tears and water.The Lookin is as visually striking as it is technical, boasting a transparent "window" to its Royalgel interior.

Reliability

Our home base in Seattle is famous for its wet weather, giving us the perfect testing ground for developing durable bikes. To endure the rigors of daily urban assaults, a bike must thrive in the most uncompromising conditions: poor roads, outdoor parking and inclement weather. They need reliable tires and durable components that require minimal maintenance, and we most certainly have that covered: the majority of the Misceo and Mesika models come with low maintenance disc brakes, and the Misceo 4.0 and Mesika 3.0 swap out a traditional chain for a smooth Gates carbon belt. Added bonus for the women, the Mesika 3.0 also features low maintenance Shimano roller brakes, it is sure to turn some heads.
