Product Details

2015 Raleigh Venture 4.0

Heads-up seating position, all-day riding comfort, and around-town versatility define Raleigh's Venture 4.0. The lightweight aluminum frame breezes effortlessly down the road on 27.5-inch wheels, and the plush suspension fork and seatpost smooth out even the roughest pavement. Decked out with a crisp-shifting, 24-speed Shimano drivetrain, this urban cruiser has all the gears you need to tackle every hill, and powerful linear pull brakes to help you stop effortlessly. Exceptional Raleigh components and a supportive saddle top off this bike and keep rider comfort, and riding performance, higher than you'll believe.

    Comments:

    I hadn't ridden a bike for many years. But we had a bike shop, and they recommended the Raleigh. It was great but the seat hurt, and I was thinking of not riding. But the bike shop guy recommended the Sunlite Cloud-9 Bicycle Suspension, the last one he had in stock. I tried it, and it was great! It even helped my back line up. Now I'm on my Raleigh bike whenever and ride as long as I want without back or bottom ache. I like riding upright to see more of the country I'm riding through, and we have great scenery.

        I use mine usually a bike path. It is a good shifting bike, however I cannot get the front chain ring to go on the large ring if the back chain ring is on the small sprocket. The handle bars rust pitted as did some of the other chrome parts. Other than the above it has proven to be reliable.

          Bought this bike and a 3.0 for the wife and I a couple of weeks ago and we have had a blast on them. The construction and performance have been nothing short of outstanding. [...] Thanks for bringing us back to a long forgotten fun time in our lives.

            As a very casual rider, I wish I'd gotten a shorter frame than the 20. I'm 6' 1" and 280 pounds and must put the seat all the way down. Otherwise it sure is nice to have those gears and cushioning on my back surgery. Carry bike on RV trips in back up p/u so light weight is very nice.

            I put off getting a bike for some time. I remembered my hunk of iron that was a pain to work on and caused me an injury or two. This bike is a dream! It is light-weight, smooth, fast and stops when put on the brakes. I find that I take my bike to goto the store when I need an item or two. Which means I get to have fun riding, a short workout and best of all never have to hunt for a parking spot! If you wanting a comfortable ride with plenty of extra features. This is the bike for you. I wish I had found it sooner. As I haven't rode a bike in nearly 20 years!

            Bought 2 of these bikes yesterday. Have not ridden a bike four about 12 years. Took a few minutes to get use to riding again, but what fun. The only problem I have it the seat hurts my backside. I think it is because of my size and not being used to it. 6'0" 280lbs. My wife loves hers. Other than a sore bum, I have no complaints so far. Probably have put about 8-10 miles on it since yesterday. Some street, some trail. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is because of my sore BUM. I think and hope that will pass with more ride time.

              This is a great all-purpose bike. If you want a bike to hit the local greenways, commute smoothly around town, hit easy to moderate dirt trails, and ride through a grassy park or take to the beach, this bike is sure to please. The flexibility of this bike and its upright position will put the fun back in cycling. It is not for competition or hardcore mountain biking, but it is great fun and will meet all recreational needs. I rode for 3 hours on my first ride without any back pain and loads of exercise and fun. The 24 speeds allowed a great range of gearing for hills. You may need to tighten the front suspension for steep hills, especially if you are big like me (220 lbs 6'3"). The 22" frame is great for the tall rider like myself. Quality build and looks great. Can't wait to get back out there.
