I'm considering buying a 2017 Tamland 2 (or one of the other Raleigh adventure bikes).  Although the intent is to use the bike primarily for gravel/mixed surface rides, there will be times when I will use the bike for 100% road rides.  My question is about the Weinmann U28 TL rims that are spec'd on all of the Raleigh adventure bikes.  Has anyone mounted 28mm road tires on these rims?  If so tubed or tubeless?  Any issues running higher tire pressure, e.g. 80psi?  I can't find any information on the Weinmann website regarding minimum/maximum tire width and pressure for these rims.  Thanks.

You have a couple of wheel builders on this site. Post the question under a new thread and  I am sure you will get some answers.

Not sure but I am hoping they develop or add to the line in meaningful ways.


Raleigh dropping the Roker line for 2018 makes no sense to me.

Hey Z

Yeah I agree.Gravel/adventure bikes are big sellers.I do like the new Willards for 2018.I guess it is wait and see.Also interested in what DB does in '18.

But I been thinking about this(yes that is smoke).I think they are dropping all their carbon bikes from their line up.
Roker,Clubman,Merit Sport and few others I can not think of right now.Their CX bikes could be
gone too for 2018.



The Raleigh site is down for me at least.I can not post A link to the newest Tamland.
It A ebike with a motor for about 5K.

Well jjbnum3 Not sure if you have been following it on here or not. A few of their guys have left Raleigh and are forming Noble bikes. As a start up Company I would doubt that they could match Raleigh's prices but I am willing to bet that their bikes will be close to the Raleigh designs or at least I think so. I am not much on the specs of a bike I just ride them. lol
