Ok so I bought the Raleigh Tokul 3! It was an upgrade from an Orbea Sport 29 10. I REALLY love the raleigh! A lot lighter than other bike. Tell me what you think.

If nothing else, it looks faster. I like the alternate triple triangle design.

Here are the biggest differences.
Orbea:
Fork- sr suntour xcm 80mm LO
Brakes-tektro mechanical
Wheel size-29
Drivetrain-3x8
Head tube angle-71
Raleigh:
Fork- rockshox xc 32 solo air 120mm
Brakes- tektro Gemini hydraulic
Wheel size-27.5, 650b
Drivetrain-1x10
Head tube angle-69 hehe

The orbea is meant more for xc. The raleigh is a trail bike. love the hydros, and the fork! 650b feels a lot better than 29er. The raleigh feels a lot lighter than the orbea

Congrats on the new bike! The color looks great. Do you plan on upgrading the pedals?

Thanks! I will replace them as soon as they loose their grip. They're actually not that bad
