I greatly appreciate the threads on the Raleigh Roker Comp that led to my purchase of one in December 2017. It's been great fun riding it during my daily commute and on the trails and roads around Silicon Valley. Looking forward to a lot of fun rides in 2018!

7rider glad to hear that you are enjoying your Roker. What size did you end up buying. It has been way too cold here in Pa. sine I bought mine. I did manage to get one ride in before the tundra land weather moved in. I missed about 30 shifts on that ride because I didn't know how the Sram shifters worked. Not that has been explained to me I can't wait to get it out and try it again. Being a thumbs up kind of guy love your FB pic. Keep giving us some ride reports and pics. I am not techy at my end so I guess I will have to learn how to post some pics.

Enjoy the bike and the ride.

I purchased the 52cm since I'm 5'5" with a 28" inseam. It fits well, but I'm right at the edge where I'd probably find a better fit on a smaller bike with 650B wheels. The SRAM shifting takes some getting used to since I've only been using Shimano STI for over twenty years, but once I got it dialed in, I love the 1x and clutch derailleur. I'm originally from Chicagoland, so I feel for my fellow riders who have to deal with the cold.

Good eye! The other locations are the intersection of Black Mountain Road and Altamont Road in Los Altos Hills and Montebello OSP when I did the Stevens Canyon Loop:

Ha, I was pretty sure that was Altamont and Montebello. I loved riding all those little backroads in Los Altos Hills.
