Raleigh have become the exclusive distributors for Spanish bike company BH in the mainland UK.
BH say they are “looking to expand on their growing international presence”, and the tie-up with another of Europe’s oldest cycle brands – Raleigh was founded in 1890 and BH in 1909 – makes perfect sense.
Raleigh are planning to initially focus on a 52-model range of road and mountain bikes, which will be available from February.
Since 2004, BH have enjoyed a successful return to road racing with sponsorship of the Liberty Seguros, Astana and AG2R LaMondiale squads. Earlier this year Raleigh announced they would be launching a pro Continental team in 2010.
