This seems like a nice bike. I was wondering if anyone has rode one or has one that could give me some insight. Thanx

as the '02 600/700. It is a nice bike for the price. The 53cm one I have was a bit harsh riding on rough roads, so I swapped out a few items to control that. I put on a set of Spinergy Xaero wheels, and a carbon fiber seatpost and FliteTT saddle. Huge difference in ride. It seems that Raleigh is and has had great value for the money. I wanted to end up with no more than around $2k into my roadbike with upgrades, and hit right on that mark. Many bash Raleigh, or other mass-produced bikes, but I sure can't find any faults for the money spent. I have had no problems with it at all.
