    New Raleigh

    Just added a Raleigh gridlock to my stable. Any one else riding one of these?

    What's with the stem?... Can I assume its threadless and the spacers are built right into the stem? It looks horrible... like those cheapo chinese generic threaded stems...

    Yeah, I dont understand what would possess bike companies to put integrated stems on complete builds. I mean if you like the flat bars, then I guess thats fine, but if the buyer has any plan to try different bars, its a huge PITA.

    Im glad. Dont get us wrong, we make a lot of criticism, but its because its not as fun to give compliments on the bike. I was actually looking at buying the same bike from a LBS but the integrated bars turned me off. Everything else on the bike I liked however.

    No matter how bad things get, they can't get any better, and they can't get any worse, things are what they are, so you better get used to it Nancy, quit your B*tchin'

    I have the version with the dropped bars... called the Rush Hour. I've changed a lot of the parts like the bars, stem, and saddle. Next are the wheels... the baby blue wheels stand out too much for me. :-\

    Looks fun, though the brooks seems out of place with the rest of the tarck/fresh look.

    A nice white airone would look baller.

    The color scheme isn't for me but it's a pretty rad bike. I do think it's cool that Raleighs come stock with a Brooks though.
