These cycles are best described as utility models and are intended for those who require Raleigh quality at a moderate price; and who prefer the larger 28″ wheel and the slight additional comfort this affords, but do not object to the slight additional weight this necessitates; even then, they are much lighter than most other bicycles.

The Sports Tourist Model represents the last word in modern cycle design for a touring and general purpose mount.  Equipped with the same light frame as several of the “Sports” models, but having the touring equipment of a Roadster, (such as broad mattress type saddle, chain case, 2-speed fears, upturned handlebars adjustable for angle as well as for height, caliper brakes, etc.) this model is recommended for all who desire a machine having the comforts and adaptabilities of a “Tourer,” but the speed, light frame and small wheel width of a “Sports.”

Raleigh Junior Cycle Boy’s and Girl’s

The Raleigh Junior Cycle Boy’s Model 29 specifications – Frame: 18″.  Wheels: 24″ by 1 3/8″ (Gear 53″) Westwood steel rims, Raleigh-Chromium plated.  Spokes, Raleigh-Stainless-Steel.  Tyres:  Dunlop.  Brakes: Front and rear rim.  Saddle: Raleigh-Lycett.  Pedals: Rubber. Fittings: Tools, toolbag, inflator and reflector.  Finish: Black enamel, gold and red lining.  Usual bright parts Raleigh-Chromium plated.

The Juniors are the perfect cycles for the boy and girl of average size for ages of from 8-12.  Built exactly as a miniature of the adult models shown, they can be depended upon to give good service under the rough treatment they will often receive.

The hand brakes on both wheels are specially constructed to give instant sage stopping with the slightest effort.  The frames are so built as to give correct posture to the rider – so seldom found with the average cycle while the saddles are arthopedically correct for the small bones of children and are correctly sprung to absorb road chocks.  We believe this to be the safest juvenile model ever produced.
