Some buyers say the Raleigh Tokul 3 pedals look and feel cheap. You can easily replace the pedals if you don't like them.
Raleigh, a reputable bicycle company, advertises the Tokul 3 as a comfortable and durable bike. Some of the specs which make this possible are an aluminum frame, which is very light and durable.
The 27.5 inches fork with 120mm travel (which is the space the fork can move), gives the bike better shock absorption, so you're assured of an enjoyable ride on rocky trails.
When buying a bicycle, your height should determine what size of bike you purchase. If you get the wrong bike size for your height, you'll not be comfortable reaching the pedals, and this may make your bike ride awful.
That's why the Raleigh Tokul 3 is available in small, medium, large and extra-large sizes to cater for people of different heights.
Riders whose height is between 160-170cm should get the small Raleigh Tokul 3. If your height is between 170-175cm, the medium bike will be perfect for you, while large is for those between 175-183cm. Extra-large is for anyone between 183-193cm.
