My Raleigh Team SL build

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

My Raleigh Team SL build

This is a warranty replacement frame for my 2006 Team frame I sent in for work. The complete bike weighs in at 17.01 lbs and is very stiff and responsive.

57cm 2010 Raleigh Team SL frame w/Easton EC90 SL fork.

Shimano Ultegra 6700 group w/6750 compact crankset
11-23 and 12-25 cassettes
FSA carbon headset
KCNC BB30 Adapter
Easton EA50 Aero wheelset
Michelin Pro 3 tires
Bontrager xXx carbon stem and bars
Deda Black Stick 31.6 carbon seatpost
Avenir saddle
KMC DX10sc chain
Cheap eBay carbon cages (but they look and work nice)

I sent my 2006 Teram frame to Raleigh for warranty work and they ended up replacing it with this 2010 Team SL frame. So I only have 2, but put my 2005 Prestige on CL for sale...

Any chance your retiring anything since you have a 2012 Militis or two now?



Thanks everyone!!!

Yours is a very nice looking bike frame & kit of parts.

Well, if you want to try to fit on a 53 with the steerer tube cut to "no spacers"...

Very sharp lookin bike. The bonty stem does a great job of balancing out the wheel cutout in the back. I generally love the Raleigh paintjobs and this is no exception! Why are you selling the Presige? Not spending much time riding it?

I really don't see myself riding it now that I have this built up. The SL rides so nice and smooth....

Is the weight you posted fully dressed, or is that the "official" weight sans pedals, cages, etc? Looks really nice. Really diggin' the redwall tires. Too bad Shimano hasn't jumped on the BB30 bandwagon. That was the reason I ended up mixing a Red crank with the Ultegra 6500 group on mine. Now it just makes me want to upgrade everything else.

The weight was taken as it is in the pictures... Pedals and cages... Less the careye computer..
Yeah it would have been nice if they did make a BB30 crank, but the KCNC adapter works great....
