This is the bike I bough today for $850 not including tax. It was on sale.
I had my mind set on the Trek 2200, cool wheels. But it costs too much,
$1500. So, I ended up liking this bike because it looks like it uses the
same components as the Trek 2200. Rolf Vector wheel versus Shimano wheel.
Carbon Fork versus Chomo Fork. It weights something like 23 pounds. Is this the 2000 model given that it comes with the Shimano wheels.

Thanks.

Just found out that I have the 2001 model. Just checked the Raleigh site.

Since you already bought it the only opinion that matters now is yours. I'd stop losing sleep over it and just ride. It pretty hard to buy a bad bike these days. There are lots of happy R600 owners out there. Enjoy the road

I just did 41 miles on it under 3 hours today. I rode it in New York City. I love it. In the past I was using a Schwinn 564 and usually I would become too tired after the 41 miles ride. With the R600, my knees are a bit little sore. That's about it.
