The pice de rsistance on the Sojourn is the included Brooks saddle which has a historical reputation for being the most comfortable available. It also comes with fenders and a rear rack customized for the bike and the fork has mounts for a front rack if the rider chooses to add one. The gearing of the Sojourn is more speed than climbing focused but the triple crankset and nine speed cassette will provide a wide range of gears.
Disc brakes are usually only found on higher priced touring bikes but Raleigh adds them to the Sojourn to provide more reliable braking and is a nice bonus along with the spoke holders, pump peg, and third water bottle cage. While the cheaper front and rear derailleurs don’t have the smoothest shifting, they carry the trustworthy Shimano name and are easily upgraded if the rider chooses.
