Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Messengers, possible all city stars, looks like a regal, looks like a fun geo and the well proportioned tubeage....... I would buy if the price is right.

looks decent, messengers arent too big of a whoop but definitely better than most. all city sherrifs would be really orgasmatic as i love those old campy ones. looks like a regal knockoff, since i dont think they were ever made in white. NMSW and brakes are a sign raleigh thinks its customers are going to take off the brakes. oh well.

It looks like a knockoff, but the original regals for sure were made in white.

bar and lever setup is the weak point.

It looks good. But it is exactly the same in every way except color (and saddle) as the 2010. Is that common to release "new" models with basically zero changes?

Passes muster in my squadron...maybe swap out the bars for some bullhorns for a little more street ridable position.

Maybe 2 weeks after I picked up my 2010 I saw the 2011 colors. I like the new colors better. The flat bar version ain't bad looking either.

no thanks, i'll salivate over this instead:

or the pro.

and if you like the raw look, the felt bougham is just as nice, especially in person:

It might be nice, if the wheels matched.
