    09 Rush Hour - 'kerin' bars, lugged fork, red accents

    Has there been a thread about the 2009 Rush Hour? I like the new fork, but I'm not sure about the red accents or the bars. I think the 08 with the 09 fork would have been a really classy entry, but it looks like they are moving in a different direction.

    It looks okay, nothing special, kind of dull really.

    looks like it is moving in the same direction as most of the people on this board. It's not a bad thing, it's just what's "cool".

    they expect everyone to keep the drops on. no risers for THIS track machine.

    AND they're taking money right out of chris and phil's pockets with colored headsets and hubs. why in god's name would anyone want to upgrade components when their stock ones are already sooooooo damn cool looking.

    It's not really a TT protector at all, its just a badge on the top tube. It's 2 separate peaces. It also is not permanent, just a little foam back tape. They have it on all there steel frame bikes even there touring bike.

    why no water bottle cages? . . . no long rides? : ( other than that, the bike looks fantastic : ) i really like the new fork . . . .

    now if we could just get it with pursuit bars . . . ahh, that would be something!!

    That's a nice looking bike. Is the pricing for the 09 going to be different?

    I saw a couple of 08's in a LBS last week.

    I prefer the simplicity of the 08's, but I'm sure the new one will sell well. It's good marketing.

    One 'cross lever says: 'I ride responsibly with a brake for emergencies'

    2 'cross levers says: 'DERRR, I got drop bars on my bike, but I never uses 'em. I like my hands at the top.'

    I am guessing your kiddin' since bmx components have come in all kinds of colors for years. I don't know why more track/road manufacturers don't. If you were joking, nm.

    if only surly would show the color scheme for the 09 steamroller, then i could actually make a finalized decision for my wife's singlespeed.

    2 cross levers says this is also a good single speed, and it sez the people at Raleigh are wise enough to know that it is the same as brakeless, to a rider with a mind of their own.

    That's crazy. That's essentially the color scheme I'm doing now, except flat black instead of glossy.

    Weird. They must be spying on me.

    Looks nifty.

    slacker headtube angle, too. 73.5 as opposed to 74/75. Not that anybody is really going to need that.

    I think it's ugly. I prefer my 08 and I love the 08 fork. The 09 is supposedly going to cost something upwards of 700 dollars.

    How much is a Raleigh Rush Hour? I'm thinking of getting one, but I'm not sure. Damn laptop with cached page. Last post I saw was the "too expensive for me". $700 is a lot, but I'm willing to spend that on a bike to get something good.
