Raleigh One Way
Mike, as I said above, the weakest link is the wheels and tires, without a doubt. The frame and fork ride well and the saddle is great. I don't agree with clunkrider. I don't think this bike needs a chain guard. It's got the plate covering the big ring, and I ride it with my pant leg down all the time without issue.

The stock tire setup on this bike just doesn't make too much sense. First off, the tires have directional tread, so extended use as a flip/flop doesn't make much sense. If you want to go fix for an extended period of time, you have to take the tire off the rim and reverse it. I want to ride it fix, but I'm just too lazy for that now. It's like I'm waiting for a flat. The bigger problem is that the tires just aren't that good. They're too fat for this type of bike 35c? I'd much prefer 28's, but I don't really want to waste the 35's that came on it. I should have asked the shop if they would swap them out. In the end, I'm considering buying a new set of tires that I will use for fixed gear riding in the spring/summer/fall and then switching back to single speed on the 35c's for the winter.

I saw this thing in Bicycling Magazine and had to have it. The 2008 model ditches the over-done black frame with overstated logos for a classic metallic green with minimal badging. About the only bad thing I can say about the bike is that it's heavy. Great single/fix commuter.
