Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The easton wheels are nice. The Red hubs really make it pop. More importantly, that Argon is beautiful. I'll be in Canada for a month or so this coming spring. I wonder if I bring one of these home

I love the simplicity of this frameset. Tacx cages were a great choice.

Flip it and lose the bag.

im not feeling the blue bottle cages but overall that is a very clean second bike. in the effort of keeping high standards im not going to call it hot but i am going to call it attractive. well done.

besides, i get sick of seeing hot bikes. clean and understated is nice sometimes.

i wouldnt worry about it. the blue isnt that bad and the shape suits the build very nicely. i think traditional black cages will look out of place.

Well I might eBay some cheap carbon cages - I don't like that blue either on that bike. But I still love the bike! Rode it today as I haven't been on it for a couple months.

Dangerously under-branded, probably not even safe to ride.

I will take this bike apart, the frame is too big, the reach is fine, but it is too tall for me, I am 5'10", the frame is 57.

Hard to be hot with a mile high stack of spacers. I don't really know anything about Raleigh brand bicycles but it looks like they took a page from the Trek decal handbook. That bike has 12 Raleigh logos on it.

Raleighs are the most underrated bike on the planet. That frame will get up and go like a scalded cheetah. I'd buy one in a heartbeat. Having said that, you'll have to do something to get in into hot territory. It just looks very off the shelf and the spacers don't help. A red saddle might help - maybe get some metalic red KCNC spacers, metallic red Nokon cable housing, and metalic red Planet X brakes. That'd be smokin'...

On the contrary, the colormatched pinkred tires and tape already overdo the 'red' theme when combined with the bright aluminum wheels.

This bike needs darker colors to be hot.
