After its initial break-in period you might notice your bicycle performing less responsively than the day you brought it home. Not to worry, this is typical of all new bicycles and simply reflects that cables have stretched or their housings have seated themselves into final position. To keep running at peak performance, all REI bicycles come with a FREE warranty tune-up, which should be accomplished between the first 100-200 miles of riding or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly. Contact your nearest REI bike shop for details and an appointment for this important service.
Raleigh bikes purchased on REI.com must be shipped to and picked up at REI stores which are authorized Raleigh dealers. The bikes are fully assembled and the shipping is free!

Comments about Raleigh Capri 1.0 Women's Bike - 2012:
I bought this bike for my wife so I cannot comment too much on how it rides, only that it seems to fit her well. It is a vast improvement over her previous bike and is a good buy. However I do find that she has trouble when shifting the main gear. I believe that this may be due to the differences between the middle and highest gears as my bike (also a raliegh) does the same. I commute on mine, and because of that I rarely ever change the main gear so this isn't an issue for me. With that said, for a person that has ridden a bit, this bike would be a good upgrade as it is responsive on the rear gears, has that third main gear, and has decent components to get you used to the "feel" of a better bike.
