Raleigh One Way
Finally got my hands on my new One Way. It's no lightweight, but then again, neither am I. If you want a bullet-proof commuter or all-rounder, this is a great choice. No frills 'cross geometry in 520 steel with 35c tires negates most potholes and road debris. I thought 42-16 would be a little light but it's surprisingly responsive when you want to take it up a notch. Metallic navy blue and Brooks leather look aces. One thing though; 44cm handlebars aren't standard on anything less than a 59cm frame. Easily remedied. I'm stoked for spring. Thanks to Win and the lads at Cycle Cambridge. Cheers!

Are those prices for the complete bike, or the frame aand fork? Pretty reaonable for lugged steel if it's a build.

Giant Bowery
Dave: check out planet bike speedez fenders. I put some on my Steve Bauer road frame and they work pretty well. By the way, has anybody checked out the '09 Bowerys? They have two high end models. The '72 and '84. They list for $1150 US, but are pretty cutting edge, especially for Giant.

Raleigh One Way
After getting sideswiped by an inattentive motorist last week, my beloved Schwinn World (SS converted) may be consigned to a place of honour on my garage wall. While recovering from my wounds, I'm shopping for a new commuter and all-arounder. I've distilled it to the One-Way and the Masi Speciale Commuter. Any thoughts?
