Raleigh Retro Mk1 Tuff Burner

You asked, or maybe you didn’t, but Raleigh delivered. The legendary Mk1 Tuff Burner is back.

If you were a BMX kid in the 80s, there are a few things that are guaranteed to leave you bright-eyed with nostalgia. Bunnyhops. Lacing up your Vans. E.T. hitching a ride in Elliot’s basket. And, of course, the bikes that defined it all.

When it first hit the streets in 1982, the Mk1 Tuff Burner stole hearts with its blazing blue frame and instant icon status. The logos, the snazzy gumwall tyres, the ultra-tough cranks – this sensational machine was a legend in the making. Which is probably why it’s regarded as one of the most iconic Raleigh Burners of all time – and that’s a pretty tall order.



Now this icon is ready to ride again.

In an exclusive limited-edition release, we’ve brought your favorite Burner back from the archives. If you were lucky enough to ride it back in the 80s, you’d notice this brand-new Tuff Burner is almost an exact replica of the original 1982 bike. The only difference? A tiny change in geometry to make sure this remake rides like an absolute dream for its, let’s say “more experienced” fans. From the Skyway Tuff 20’’ wheels to the blue Aero saddle, you’ll be ready to ride like it’s 1982.

Snag it while you can at Raleigh.

Jobst Brandt Bike Ride Book on Kickstarter

Jobst Brandt (1935-2015) was a California cyclist and engineer whose passion and intellect changed the way we ride bikes today. Years before the evolution of mountain bikes and gravel bikes, his legendary ‘Jobst rides’ took riders and their bikes to places they hadn’t gone before.

Jobst spent almost fifty summers in the Alps, lightweight touring and adventuring over 2,000 miles each time, always carrying a camera to document his trip.

He was also the brilliant mind behind many innovations such as the bike computer and smooth tires, and he even influenced the birth of the mountain bike.

The JOBST BRANDT RIDE BIKE! book tells the story of his life and rides through unseen photos and original documents that detail his impact on cycling.

Back this book on Kickstarter today.
