I'm definitely digging the maroon and the decal.

Wonky forks?

I like the paint job. What bars are those, or are they Raleigh proprietary?

Wow. I'm really not liking the way the fork pairs up with that head tube.

Otherwise, it looks great.

Looks like 1x front and back to me, but even 1x is pretty lame for the rear. The whole bike is impractical image fodder. They just threw some parts on it for show. See Scrod's remark re the fork. Silly.

uhh... not really. rhp's seat tubes never looked like that, and the rhp's fork isn't wonked like is being lamented.

macaframa's tight as hell but if i had a choice between this and a cinelli mash histogram i'd take the mash. which is saying a lot because i like macaframa way more...

Fork is bully, and screw that wheelset. Nice frame, though.

Keep looking and looking, but still waiting for the pizzazz. Just not digging this offering.

Clash of old school paint with aero alu. frame, I suppose. Could be the wheelset. Or the fork.

Bike seems confused.

okay fine. compare the top tube/head tube junction. or the bottom bracket/downtube junction. it's decidedly rhp, not ftp.

evidently not. very few people like this bike and that's just fine with me. i think the cinelli mash is the only 'design/crew' collaboration i've actually liked. i hate Obey/Sheppard and DC/pk ripper. In fact, compared to those, I think this thing is beautiful. it takes third in my book behind the cinelli mash and the all time best thing ever, the adidas marinoni.

say what you want about the wheels and fork, this bike's handlebars seatpost and stays are pimp.

Haha idk man. I kinda hate how the fork looks like it was built for a completely different bike. Its like the head tube got hungry and tried to eat the fork. And that frame reminds me of a leader.
