2016 Raleigh Roker Comp 56 cm
$1400 obo
https://www.raleighusa.com/roker-comp-15390#

The Raleigh Roker Comp is a perfect gravel bike. Perfectly stable thru the unpredictable terrain you will come across as this light weight carbon bike takes you places you haven't been. The front and rear thru axles complement the comfortable ride. Hydraulic disc brakes are so nice, and make all other braking systems feel mushy and weak.
Throw some slicks tires on and the Roker allows you to get out on a road ride, feels right in place and fast.
The Clement X'plor MSO 40mm tires are comfortable and plush, and have plenty of life left. This bike has been ridden, and shows some cosmetic signs of wear but is in great shape. I have always kept it clean. The chain has been replaced recently. 3M clear bra material has been applied to the frame on the top tube and other places to prevent cable rub.

Everything is stock except the rear derailleur which is an Ultegra, an upgrade from the 105 stock group.

Get out and ride all winter, and be ready for the 2018 gravel season, maybe even the DK?!

Along with the bike I will include a new set of Shimano brake pads and a new bottom bracket, (SM-BBR60).

I am 6 feet tall, I usually ride a 56 on the road and this bike fits me like a glove.

Like some others have mentioned further down in this thread, this bike has been very well received by gravel riders and there are some good articles about it.


Thanks and give me a call or text if you are interested or have any questions.

Not my size,but I really like how the blue and black is done.I believe it is A 2015.
I know color is not everything on A bike.

2016 was Red,white and blue that I did not care for much.
2017 solid Red is very nice.

Nah he is right that it is a 2016 Roker. Wish I would have seen this before I bought my 2017. Big difference between the 2 bikes 2016 is still 2x Shimano and 2017 is 1x Sram Rival. The Sport was red white and blue.

Yeah I think they did it was solid black from what I saw.

Boy the Sram sure takes some getting use to and one ride for me I missed lots of gears.

I am trying to look up the specs on this bike and am struggling.

I have ad blocker and all the sites want me to turn off my ad blocker to look at their sites.

Does this bike have hydraulic or mechanical brakes?

What was the weight listed for the 56 cm frame bike?

I have this exact same bike. I believe I got just about the last one still available when they were new.  It is a great bike that gets everything right for a true "gravel" bike in terms of geometry and available tire width. And for all that you get a threaded bottom bracket. My ONLY complaint is that for me personally the front end can be harsh over high-frequency stuff.  Throw on some 28 mm road tires and it doubles as a truly comfortable endurance road bike.  I also have the steel tamland with the same geometry, but because of the carbon frame and thru axles on the Roker, the two bikes have very different handling characteristics. Why in the world would OP ever sell this bike? [smile]

- Yes it uses hydraulic brakes, post mount.
- Stock bike was Shimano 105 except for the cranks.
- Please do not hold me to this, but I would guess the stock bike with the stock wheels was 20 or maybe 21 pounds?

You want it even lighter? Here is was a video review from the Gravel Cyclist crew:

reanimated I am trying to gleen as much info from this site and also over at gravel cyclist.com since I am the newbie to gravel riding/racing. JOM took a 2017 Sport which weighs in around 22 lbs.(2 lbs heavier than the Roker) and got it to down around 17.4 lbs which is amazing. He bought the Sport because he knew he was going to strip everything off the bike and since he is what I guess I would call a weight weenie shaved every lb./oz. off he could. He has an incredible bike but would be interested on what the cost was. For the average guy I think you probably could get the weight down easier and more cost effective by just buying the Roker as there isn't that much difference in them with the Corporate price. I know that I am going to get a new set of wheels for mine. I still kind of wish I had the option of 2x versus 1x but it is way too early to have that set in my mind.
