Raleigh Array

I bought one of these just over a year ago. The bicycle itself is lovely and comfortable and nice to ride. It looks lovely in powder blue, and it's a quality frame. When the motor works, it is great fun to ride.

I say when because in spite of me looking after this bike VERY well, it has stopped working for the third time. The first two times it was the pedal assist sensor at fault so it's probably that. Trying to get Evans and Raleigh to sort it out was a huge problem, so this time, i'll order the part and sort it myself. So disappointed.

The design leaves the sensor very exposed. It's poorly designed and not practical in several ways... for example, the splitter in the wiring to the front wheel (where the hub motor is), is in the tubing, so to change the front tire, you have to pull the wiring out of the frame to get to the splitter (this is easy) and then put it back and return the holding strip to keep it in (this is anything but easy!). 

I am so dissapointed in this bike that i will never buy another Raleigh product. It feels like a real compromise pushed through to hit a certain price point. i am selling it and am saving up for a new eMTB instead.
