My newish road bike bought on Cycle2Work :o Full carbon frame and forks, Force groupset, very light bike and could end up sub 7kg with a sprinkle of carbon.

    I hope Raleigh can build their reputation up again as for a long time they seemed to falter at the bottom end of the market with a few high end bikes.
    Great looking bike, hope you enjoy.
    Lets us know how it rides ?

    Lovely, absolutely gorgeous. I wouldn't be in a rush to swap them wheels, they're top notch :)

    I love Raleighs, (no bias,) haha ( My bike's below ;) ) There isn't a lot on here yet, must put mine on when I get a chance :)

    Oh and be careful with the carbon dropouts, the they won't take a battering.

    I also got RSP ( Raleigh Special Products,) bottle cages, they look deadly, although at a Devilish 43 grams each :/

    Have noticed already with the carbon dropouts had to file just a wee tad one side on the rear to get the stock wheels to sit straight. Whatever was in before must have had ever so slightly smaller spindles. (was a race bike with lbs)

    Nice bike - looks 8) and well specced.

    The biggest 'problem' you'll come across is people's preconceptions of Raleigh at that sort of price ("How much for a Raleigh?...). Ignore 'em and enjoy the ride.

    The militis range looks really nice.

    Recent review said it was one of the very best carbon frames out there to date !

    The yellow one looks nice + have seen a couple of them around my way recently.http://www.raleigh.co.uk/ProductType/Pr ... 4&pg=10697

    I've seen the yellow and black ones. The lbs where I got my bike got these in as team bikes. The black has a velvet feel about it. Not for everyone's taste as its quite loud in appearance but I liked it.
