Hey thanks I like it 😊 I think it would be fodder in the hot or not. Doesn't have a straight top tube, has hydraulic disk brakes, doesn't have matching bottle cages, and the stem is not slammed, and has mediocre wheels. LOL

oh and it is 1x drivetrain.

love it though, pleasure commuting around 32 mi RT on limestone and gravel trails.
Comes in at 19 lbs with the lights unclipped, which doesn't seem too bad considering 10r fiber frame, fiber seatpost and saddle, but alloy bars, stem and wheels, XT pedals, and heavier (but bomb-proof ) Clement Strada USH 32mm tires. I also replaced the pinned 10-42 cassette with an X01 10-42 cassette machined out of a single piece of steel. A little bit lighter, but more importantly to me, it just shifts so much better.

My new summer commuter.

Mine has a straight top tube, mechanical rim brakes, no bottle cages, stem is slammed, and has the cheapest shimano wheels you can buy on crc

And its a 1x, diy.

Mine weighs 18,3lb or 8,3kg. Not too bad considering I have only one carbon part on there. The saddle. My Selle italia slr nero puro LE, and its only partial carbon. The frame is hand made out of steel in Italy. Steel is real.

Holy SHORT STEM Batman! Takes cat-like reflexes and nerves of steel to ride that one (at least around here it would). Coupled with those shin shredding pedals, I'm afraid I wouldn't survive. That's the best red I've ever seen on a bike, hands down. Gorgeous!

its no more nervous than a regular bar and a 100mm stem would be. but as you see the bar expands forward like 5cm so a shorty was needed.
The stem bar combo is what counts. and its basically down to whatever your hands end up to when its all finished. and this is like a regular drop bar. in the hoods.

this probably is... on a computer screen that is. i had some wilder (higher dynamic range) but I guessed only i could see them, since i'm on a semi pro Eizo IPS panel and not a consumer TN panel. so i have more depth and more color, and more dynamic range. with this i pic felt like i was cramming the most out of the DR out of a TN panel.

Nice. I like my tech though, ;-)

I was just thinking the other day I would like a candy-apple red bike, metalflake even.

2017 Raleigh Cadent 2
This is my commuter, fun, & anything but MTB trail bike. I justified the purchase by promising myself that I would ride it to work every day the weather would allow. I have kept my promise for 3 weeks so far. Since then, I have added quick trips to the grocery store & errands to the list. It will be going to Virginia Beach with me next week on vacation. It was originally purchased with the intent of riding with my daughter to get her interested in biking.
