    Very nice. I'm a huge fan of the Macaframa guys. I'm not too wild about the shape of the seat and down tubes on this frame, but that's just me and it's nitpicky. It's a great looking bike all around.

    How do you like the handlebars? I recently put similarly shaped FSA Metropolis bars on mine and love them.

    Very nice build! I am, of course, not an unbiased observer on the frame... but, pretty nonetheless.

    I've been riding the mustache bars on variois bikes over the years and I always do back to them.
    I still use drops, bullhorns and risers now and then though.

    As others have said, nice looking bike. Care to tell a newbie a bit about the frame? Is this something that's in current production, or is it from the past?

    It is a 2011 Macaframa Raleigh. A collab between the two with Mike Giant in the mix doing the decals. I pre ordered this at interbike and the first batch for production came in on tuesday and i had mine by wednesday. That batch was only ten frames so I'm not really sure how many are gonna be made up for retail.

    I wrapped up the B123's and rawed a salsa chromo stem.

    Im pretty sure they will never make it to mailorder. There was a limited run of ten for now and I'm not sure of raleighs plans.
