Cross bike? Commuter? Gravel road explorer? Raleigh's Furley is whatever you want it to be. Wherever you pedal, the smooth ride of the chromoly frame and fork sings over rough pavement and dirt paths. It's set up as a singlespeed with an ingenious eccentric bottom bracket, but you can also run the Furley with gears thanks to the rear derailleur hanger and vertical dropouts. For the build, you get Clement tires, semi-aero Weinmann rims, forged 2-piece cranks and mechanical disc brakes that pull it all to a stop. Other details that keep this rig versatile include fender, water bottle, and rack mounts.
