Raleigh Supercourse...any insights?

Hello all, like many I am considering an upgrade to a carbon frame. Raleigh has been good to me. I'm riding one now that is an aluminum framed mountain bike on a 50 mile round trip commute at least 3 days a week for a total of at least 150 miles a week. Does anyone have any experience with the Supercourse?..I weigh 220 and I'm 6'1" tall. I lost 10 pounds in 6 weeks while still eating like a horse with this commute, plus I feel like an animal, and at 46yrs old that's a good thing....

A friend of mine owns one and really likes it. As long as the bike fits you I'd say go for it. Especially since you are happy with your Raleigh dealer.
