We sent Neil@ROAD a 2007 Supercourse last year and he decided to make it a "project" bike. In this issue of ROAD "Raleigh Revisited Part-II" is a short write-up of how Neil upgrades his Supercourse - which wears the same carbon frame as our TEAM, Prestige, and Competition road bikes - only it comes in at a wallet friendly price point of $1525.

Back in Sept. we invited Neil out to participate in our local MS150 ride - we put him on a 2008 Prestige for a good two days of riding (1st day 100 mi. 2nd 75mi. - click here and here for the full story) he went back to sunny California and got inspired to upgrade his Supercourse.

"After several good climbing surges, it became apparent that the bike's classic geometry and unfaltering gruppo were designed for riders who like to go hard..."

" speed, the A.C.E. Evolution carbon fiber frame smoothly rolled with minimal power being wasted."
