While smaller statured riders applauded the Raleigh RXW for its range of sizes to accommodate those on the shorter end of the spectrum, the taller riders among us roared approval of its counterpart, the 2017 RX 2. 0 Complete Cyclocross Bike and its sizing options that include riders up to 6-feet, 5-inches tall. Its light and durable aluminum construction keeps costs affordable, while a SRAM one-by drivetrain and TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes make this a race-ready bike that's also chomping at the bit to tackle all-road adventures. The RX 2. 0's sizing range spans from 52cm up to 62cm and encompasses recommended rider heights from 5-feet, 4-inches up to the previously mentioned, towering 6-feet, 5-inch heights. Compared to its RXW counterpart, the RX 2. 0 features a slightly higher stand over height for a more traditionally flat top tube angle. The RX 2. 0's head tube is a little shorter and just a hair steeper, giving this bike a slightly more aggressive stance for snappy responsiveness and confident handling. For riders falling within the crossover sizes of these two models, these tweaks provide welcome options to best match varying levels of flexibility and positioning preferences.It's worth noting that both the RX 2. 0 and the RXW enjoy nearly identical build spec, which means choosing between the two comes down to your stature, geometry preferences, and ride style, with no penalty in componentry on either side of the scale. The main difference in the spec sheets is the chainring--where the RXW gets a climb-friendly 38-tooth ring, the RX 2. 0 utilizes a more race-oriented 42-tooth option, which makes it a powerhouse off the start line, with the versatility to also tackle moderate terrain and gravel excursions.
