I see the Cannondale thread and noticed how the 2010 Raleigh offerings were improved, also, with the emphasis on higher end commuters.
Love the Alley Way. Clubman and Sojourn are nice, too.
The more relaxed geometry bikes look nice, too. Calisapel has a chain guard. IGH. Detour Deluxe is very well equipped commuter with an IGH now and integrated lights. I like their Roadster models, too.
I think it's great to see such commuting equipment like fenders, racks and lights becoming standard equipment on some bikes. They appear to be addressing the fact that some use bikes for transportation. Amazing!
