Here is my latest project! A 2013 raleigh militis with the new DA 9000 mechanical group.

Raleigh seems to be rare around here, good to see one of their newer models.

Any feedback on the frame?
How much does it weigh?

indeed, a well kept secret

2 things I would have done differently: tires (black sidewalls) and seatpost (enve)

looks as if you've got the long axle pedals on there, if indeed so, would you mind placing a picture, close up ?

txs and enjoy !

In contrast to the poster above I like the AX post and tan sidewalls. I don't think you should try to run a black stealth bike since the DA9000 parts and C24 rims will never be completely black. Just sand off the huge ENVE logo on the stem and maybe shoot it with clear to match the seat post and the whole bike will look more balanced.

Nice bike...nice lines on that frame. Only thing, not sure why they put the Raleigh logo so low on the dwon tube..almost seems out of place. :noidea:

thanks for the feedback guys! The bike really has an amazing ride. I would put this frame up against any of the top manufactures! The seat post is temporary as I pulled it off my wilier. Im going to get a different post and I already got the selle italia seat that is black and silver.

Looks very nice indeed. Even though it's new, the brand name triggers that 'classic' notion, I guess that goes well with the tires. I'm hoping to build a Fondriest TF2 1.0 with DA9000 mechanical soon(ish).
Enjoy the ride!

Awesome! Wouldn't change a thing. Except for the stem maybe.

nice ride. I agree on the tire, black sidewall would look better. How do you like the 9000?
