    Just picked this up at REI this afternoon. I then brought t over to my mechanic to go through it because REI was the ones that assembled it.



    It will get rear rack, bar tape, new saddle, new seat post, Crank brothers Mallet 2 pedals. It will also have all reflectors and dork removed. This is my cruiser and grocery getter bike so the pedals are perfect.

    .... and finally it has become a pretty steady commuter bike for me, I've found some comfort in installing 25c Michelin Pro Optimum tires (which actually measure 27mm wide on my narrow rims), although they barely clear the rear brake, they do offer significantly more comfort and allow me to run my tires at 100psi, which works much better when I have to replace a tube roadside with a hand pump to continue my ride,

    I've also put on a 48tooth big ring to lessen that big compact crank jump up front

    Just bought my first Raleigh!

    Revino Carbon 2.0, full 105 group, very excited to hit the road with it!

    Hoping my mtn bikes don't get too jealous!

    Nice patriotic paint scheme. Actually just sold it so I could get a more practical 2000 LeMond Zurich. Still have it's huge 25" frame twin in my garage though. Nice bikes.
    THAT is a nice bike!

    I imagine you have not visited Raleigh's website?

    On this subject I recently went into a dealer and test rode the Raleigh full carbon Militis bike as it shares the same geometry chart as the Grand Prix I picked up a year or so ago. I was curious to see if it handled as beautifully as the Grand Prix, and I was not disappointed. It was amazingly light and laterally stiff. It did exhibit one concern in that it was making a lot of creaking noises from what seemed to be the seat tube to seat post mounting. I told the dealer about this and not sure if they were able to cure it. There seemed to be quite a bit of tuned flex built into the upper bow of the frame resulting in this creaking. The Militis rode nice but was likely a little rougher riding than my Scott CR1 but then it has better geometry (for my tastes). Still I wont be trading in my CR1 for one. I think I'll keep the "steel" version for now.

    Picked up a Revenio 4.0!

    Love the full Ultegra including the cranks. No calling a bike Ultegra while using FSA cranks for Raleigh. It's a great bike.

    that's very nice... I have checked and never seen them available, must be pretty limited production stuff... what's it weigh like that? I've got the recent Grand Prix and love the geometry to death... the International always looks even more appealing, I imagine the frame and fork sheds a pound or so compared to the Grand Prix 520 steel.

    Thanks.. I've been exclusively on mtn bikes for a few years and just decided to dabble in the road bikes. Had been looking for a good deal on a Ti frame and stumbled onto this one at a very decent price. I'm really enjoying it..

    I weighed it right at 19 lbs with a set of XTR (mountain) pedals on it.. I've since put on Ultegra SPD-SL's which I believe are comparable weight-wise.
