    wierd...theres pics in my gallery I've never seen before.

    But there is a couple pics. Here's one from my crappy cell phone camera during my first ride with it. Reflectors are all gone, and I have Look clipless pedals installed now.

    Southern PA

    That's my backyard in south-central Pennsylvania. Lots of nice rolling hills, but the road network generally sucks for biking.

    I have a 2003 Grand Sport as my backup bike and I really enjoy it when I ride it.
    .

    I have changed the handlebars, stem and saddle since this rather lousy picture was taken.

    Cheers,

    Brian J.

    Raleigh Cadent FT3 - SUPER intro bike!

    Plus,I get to toss around knowing phrases, such as "it is performance hybrid, you know..."

    Which of course everyone will nod also knowingly, no one daring to state that everyone is totally clueless about just what a "performance hybrid" is....

    Super Course

    I have a Super Course (built in Japan) from the mid-80s. Haven't changed anything out since the original build. It's still in great shape, but I'm wondering if I would be better off getting something new since technology has come a long way since it was built. Any thoughts?

    Sooooo..... I never have gotten any info on where Raleigh orbits in the cycling universe. Now, I am perfectly happy with my newly store-boughtened Cadent FT3, but it isn't as though Raleigh has a very high thread count here.. what with your Giants and your Roubiaxes and your Specializeds...

    Has Raleigh's time come and gone, or is it now regarded as the first choice of freds everywhere?

    Thx!

    Well, yours truly thinks Raleighs are pretty good machines, but happens to be rather biased...

    Still, if you mosey on over to The Website , you can see some of the shiny new two-elevens.

    That link takes you to a model that pertains to my interests, though it is a pretty penny.

    Steel? My goodness...you ARE bucking the trend....

    DuraAce..nice..what is that going for? North of $2K?

    Anyway, I am happy with my sleeper bike..it may not get the attention of others, but it serves my purposes, and I am having fun with it.

    Still, interesting though that Raleigh doesn't have their own forum here.... not that much penetration in the American market?

    Thx!

    Yes, it is an expensive bike. Those are Dura-Ace WH-7850 carbon clincher wheels, for instance, they are about $1,500 on their own.

    Don't worry, there's an Ultegra and 105 bike as well, but, dang I really like the frame on that International!

    I am glad you are enjoying your bike -- Raleigh is releasing a new line of endurance-performance aluminum road bikes next season which should help expand the presence in many shops.

    See you on the road!

    Good to hear! I always thought there would be a market for a humane roadbike, much like the "super-standard" motorcycles that you can't throw a cat without hitting one now....

    Now... all they need are panniers for these guys and life would be perfect!

    How about an old Raleigh Team USA?

















    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.
