Product Details

2017 Raleigh Cadent i8 belt-compatible frameset

Did someone say Fun Bike Project? Now you can build up your own disc-brake, belt-drive bike without spending very much at all. The Cadent frame can be built up almost any way you like: belt/singlespeed, belt/internal gearing, chain/singlespeed, chain/internal gearing, or (with an available derailleur hanger) chain/conventional derailleur. Drop bars can be used instead but will affect handling and body position a bit--remember drop bars will effectively lengthen the cockpit, so you may want to downsize if you're geometrically on the fence.

The Cadent i8 frame has a basic road geometry but is designed for flat or swept-back handlebars. It excels as a speedy around-town bike but can be used for much more. Constructed of AL-6061 custom-formed butted alloy tubing with a seatstay splitter (so the belt can go in) and an eccentric bottom bracket shell. Carbon fork with alloy steerer. Includes a quick-release seatpost collar and a headset. Does not include a bottom bracket.

Room for tires up to about 36mm. Fender and rack mounts. Belt guard can be removed.

This frame is notably lighter than the beefy Raleigh Misceo i8 framesets that we also have, and of course the carbon fork is much lighter than the Misceo's steel fork.

These frames are new but were assembled into complete bikes at the factory before we got them.
