Raleigh XXIX custom project... COMPLETE!!!

Here's the project complete. Well... except for the Race Face grips I'm waiting on and I will be upgrading the handlebar to a matching Ritchey carbon when I decide which one I want.

The bike was originally Alice Blue but it was pretty beat up. I wanted to do something about the brake mounts going across the top tube because I really didn't like the way it looked. So I removed them and did a custom internal cable/hose routing in the top tube. I was considering painting it BWM Laguna Seca Blue but I decided on a more industrial look with the raw steel showing.

In case you missed it, here is a link to the original thread with some photos of the build in progress...

That looks very nice. I like the decision to go with a raw metal finish.

Very sexy and classic. Lots of dignity. What rotors did you go with?

Nice work.
