The Raleigh Misceo iE in this testing & review is the step over frame design in the Large size and Grey color. The 2 sizes available in the step-over frame are: Medium (5′-6″ to 5′-9″) and Large (5′-9″ to 6′-0″).
The Misceo iE is also available in this Blue color in the step-thru frame type with 2 different sizes: Small (5′-3″ to 5′-6″) and Medium (5′-6″ to 5′-9″)
And this is the silver color available in the step-thru model.
The Raleigh Misceo iE is constructed with 7005 hydroformed aluminum to shape the tubing to provide strength where it is needed and to construct the proper fit for the rider and electric components.
The head tube is a good example fo the thick aluminum welds at the top tube and down tube connections.
Internal cable routing on the left side of the downtube provides some cable protection and a cleaner look.
Here is another weld detail at the seat tube where the top tube and seat stays connect. Just above that is the seat post quick release.
A nice frame detail is how the downtube has been shaped to provide a platform for the battery.
Here is a closer at the SR Suntour battery located on the downtube of the frame for central and low weight distribution. This is an ideal location for the overall handling of the bike.
The SR Suntour lithium battery is a 36V 11.6ah pack with 418Wh of capacity.
On the left side of the battery is the frame lock at the top and the charge port is at the bottom of the pack.
Once unlocked with one of the supplied keys the battery can be removed by pulling up and off the bike.
When the battery has been removed the bike weighs 49.8 pounds. The total bike weight with the battery is 55.5 pounds.
The battery can be charged on or off the bike. Complete charging time is about 6 to 7 hours for the 36V 11.6ah battery and it weighs 5.7 pounds.
The SR Suntour NVS-DS suspension fork provides 3 inches or 75mm of travel to smooth out the rougher roads.
On the left side of the fork is the preload dial that adjusts the suspension spring rate for your weight and riding style.
On the right side of the fork is the lockout dial that is helpful for providing an efficient ride on smoother roads by preventing the fork from moving.
The Suntour HESC cranks feature a 42 tooth chainring with double chainring guards to keep the chain on the chainring and there is also the chainguard for pant leg protection.
The SR Suntour Performance system uses an Active Torque Sensor (ATS) to measure your riding and provide the proportional amount of assist based on the pedal assist level selected.
Wellgo plastic platform pedals have a large rubber grippy platform for a solid ride feel.
A Shimano Altus rear derailleur shifts through the 8 speed Shimano cogset.
The SR Suntour Performance geared rear hub motor provides pedal assist up to 20 mph with a nominal power of 250 watts and peak power of 400 watts with peak torque of 60Nm.
The 8 speed Shimano cogset ranges from 11 tooth to 34 tooth.
The Raleigh Misceo iE is a Class 1 electric bike which is pedal assist up to 20 mph and 750 watts or less.
Tektro hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors front and rear slow the Raleigh Misceo iE down.
This is the rear Tektro hydraulic disc brake with the rotor attached to the SR Suntour Performance rear hub motor.
Kenda 700 x 45c tires are used front and rear. They have a smooth tread pattern for an efficient ride and channeling to help with dissipating water.
Now let’s take a look at the ride position and control center.
Review Note: Each company pays a fee for a review on Electric Bike Report because of the considerable amount of time that it takes to provide an in-depth review of each eBike. A lot of time is spent on the full range test with distance & elevation profile, the wide variety of detailed pictures, in-depth video, and the write up with the specifications, ride characteristics, pros, cons, and overall thoughts. The reviews on Electric Bike Report are focused on providing you with a detailed “virtual” look at each eBike to help you determine if it is the eBike for you or not.
