Here she is. Right next to my bed (lower left) and dresser, right where she belongs. My wife sleeps on the other side.
Thanks, Tom. You totally made my day.
Maybe later on I'll even try to find a good background and turn the bike around. Not going to flip the stem though.

OK, are all of the Raleigh super tall frames????
Those all look great for me.

Raleigh made frames, (For a lot of years) In 21.5" 23.5" and 25.5" I think your average American male would have been better served with a 22.5" or 23" even frame. But you take what you can get.
Both mine are 23.5", fit great in the top tube length, but are a little tall in the standover. Oddly enough, I have very little standover clearence, but my seatposts are set at the right spot. You'd think they should be lower. go figure.

My Mojave after a few modest upgrades:
New double walled rims, new spokes, new dart three fork, and some nashbar platforms. It will probably be the most bad ass 2.0 by time I'm done with it :D
