I’m just a cyclist who happens to have a very cool job representing Raleigh and Diamondback Bicycles throughout Ohio, Western Pa, and West Virginia.

    Hey Sean,
    Great blog. I love your pictures of the Raleigh’s in action.

    Perhaps you can answer this easier than anyone else I’ve come across. Are the tires on the 2012 XXIX+G a folding bead or simply a steel wire bead? Would you consider the bike to be something you would race? I am going to be ordering one out here in Idaho and wanted to know. The shop owner is a good friend of mine but I don’t want to annoy him with 50 questions. I’ve already asked him 49 so I don’t want to push my luck. 🙂 If you have anymore pictures of your XXIX+G in action I’d love to see them.


    • Thanks partially to your blog I just picked up a 2013 Furley in black of course. Most fun bike I’ve had in a long time. I have had a lot of different bikes and sold most of them. This one will be around for a very, very long time. As I was thinking about pulling the trigger, I kept thinking about your pictures of the Furley around Cleveland, and though I’m in Idaho, I feel connected to my home state through this site. Hope you’re having a great year. My buddy’s Raleigh shop is doing really well in its first year, props to a solid company and great looking bikes. Good luck in cross this season.


      • That is excellent Tony! I’m digging the new black color however I don’t think I can turn my back on my orange one just yet as I’m getting some great miles on it. Great to hear your buddy’s shop is going well and hopefully we can continue to assist in his successes. I’m incredibly happy with the products we have coming to market and I think we have a few more surprises right around the corner.

  2. I hear rumors about some trick new squishy bikes coming out… If or when I end up back in Ohio I’ll try to let you know. I’d love to go out and hammer some miles on the Furleys. It will be fun to try a race on it, although I’m not sure its the best use of the bike. Gravel grinders seem like its forte. I think I’ll mount up a 20t on the rear and try to climb the local road up to the ski hill. Should be um… fun.
