    Certainly looks like a PedalForce RS2. But then, 'PedalForce' is just a marketing company, so PedalForces are re-brands as well of (I think) ADK frames. It makes no difference any more, it's all good stuff. Not sure if they still do, but Fondriest and Wilier used to have that very frame in their lineup.

    It's tradition. Raleigh has always had a special relationship with the color yellow.

    I would concur it is the same frame as the PF RS2 and one of the Fondriests. It's a very good frame, just stiff enough (I get no frame flex), and quite comfortable. It's no comfort bike though, it rips along with imput.

    Looks similar but different to the RS2. The seat stays aren't as curved like the RS2. The seat cluster looks a little beefier on this one.

    When looking at the frame I can see that it has a Dedacciai Black Wave fork. And also the seat stay also said dedacciai on it. I look at their website and I can not find it. Also I did not know that dedacciai made this type of frame unless is new for 09.
