26 1 3/8″ (590mm) aluminium rimmed single speed wheelset

Improve the performance of your Raleigh roadster. This wheelset is the traditional roadster size but with aluminium rims for improved braking and lower turning mass (meaning quicker acceleration). As these are exactly the same size wheels as found on Raleigh roadsters and similar vintage bikes, they are a direct replacement for steel rimmed wheels and they’ll work with the brakes you’ve got.
