This is a Brand New Thorn Raven Sport Tour, this has never been ridden. A rare chance to buy a Raven Sport Tour ready to ride, without having to wait the 4-5 week build delay and a saving over what it would cost normaly as these were built in downtime.

This bike has been built with a Shimano Alfine 8 Speed hub NOT the usual Rohloff hub, this makes it a more affordable option for those who don’t need the 526% range of the Rohloff gears and can handle the 307%, we have found this is ideal for city use and can tackle most hills if your not carrying massive loads. You can of course always upgrade to a Rohloff at a later date.

Can be supplied with a Rohloff hub fitted instead for £850 extra please call to order

The bike suits someone of 4ft 9" - 5ft 2" if unsure of size please contact us 01278 441505 or

Raven Sport Tour 486 Affine 8 Gearing And Size
24 Jun 2014
Hi. I'm thinking of getting this bike for my wife who is 5'4". I suspect size is perfect as she likes shorter bike and more upright position. I can add a high rise stem if need be. Would this suit do you think. I looked at charts I think it will. Suspect your quoted height range is for male rider.
Can you tell me gear range in inches. I suspect that we may need smaller chainring to achieve lowest gear of 20 to 25". Not worried about upper ratio as we live in Peak District and lower ratios will be more important.
I look forward to hearing from you. Bill Tate
