outstanding design and manufacturing qualityReview by tim
Really like the design of this bike, it is a total retro bike with a modern technology crank set, I had my doubts about the modern version of side pull looking brakes, but they work as good or better than the center pull brakes, The steel frame and full carbon fork make for a unbelievably smooth ride.
Because I ride a heavy traffic area sometimes I am forced onto sidewalks and even with over 90lbs of pressure in tires, this bike is super smooth
on sidewalks, between the design and the quality of manufacturing of this bike I will call it outstanding in all areas.
I am thankful to Raleigh that they will sell direct to customers, so we can set bikes up our self from scratch.(Posted on 3/10/2018)

Great bikeReview by VashniOverall Quality
this is the first time ever ordering a bike on line and not going for a test ride. The pictures does not do it justice. The bike is very beautiful and I am old school; just 69 years old. I been making adjustments with stem and the seat and have not got it right yet. Been riding on bike trials for now and have lest then 20 miles on it. But I can tell it is a fine road bike and looking forward to riding on the road with it. I trying different peddles on it, but I may have to wait for a while before I decided which peddles. I have not ridden on a steel bike in over 40 years, but I wanted a steel bike and carbon bikes are more smoother. But there is something about a good steel bike. Read about this bike in Bicycling and took the gamble.(Posted on 6/21/2017)
Very beatifulReview by RedberryOverall Quality
This is the first time I order the bike on line. The is different than a carbon bike that I have looked at. But with only less than twenty miles on it and have not been on the road with it yet; only on bike trails and trying to make adjustments as I ride. So I don't know how a steel bike should ride since it been over thirty years. But the bicycle is pretty to see and pictures do not do justice. It rides a little harder that carbon. My only problem is that it took over a week before it arrived at dealer and than it took him several days before I got it.(Posted on 6/15/2017)
