Hey all,

Does anyone have any opinions about the Raleigh R700 road bike. Its aluminum frame, carbon fork, and full ultegra. I race mountain bikes and through my shop sponsor I can get this bike for $900. I have a really crappy road bike now and with another kid on the way I have limited funds so this seems like my best "bang for the buck". I plan to do more road racing this year so I want something decent.

Check it out if you have a minute...

I purchased a 2000 model last November and while it's no Lightspeed, it does all I have ever asked of it. I have raced it 4 times and it hasn't held me back. I would buy another and you CANNOT beat the price for a race ready Ultegra bike...
