Raleigh One Way - single speed

Anybody have a 2011? For that matter, chime in even if
You have an older one since it doesn't appear they've changed
Much. They look great but I haven't seen much in the way of personal
Commuter reviews.

A quick search of the SS/FG came up with this thread- http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...aleigh+one+way. Bit too much for my blood, but I'd take it if someone gave it to me .

Do you know what the MSRP is? Somebody in the other thread mentioned $600, which doesn't seem bad to me. Btw, thanks for linking that other thread. I did a search too but somehow missed it.

I picked up a closeout 2010 about two months ago. So far I like it a lot. With the Brooks and wide tires it is arguable the most comfortable bike I own. I like the fenders and rack mounts. The 42x16 gearing works OK for my 6mi. mostly flat commute, but could be a little lower. According to police radar trailer set up down the street I spin out at 28mph. The stock handlebars are narrow for my tastes and will eventually be swapped to something wider. The bottom bracket is a little creaky, but for the price, I can't complain. It gets complements from everyone at work and I think she pretty, and that’s what counts, ain't it.
