Looks really cool. Is it fixed? Hope you're gonna put a back brake on if it's not.

Thanks.
It is no fixie, and there is going to be a back brake.
I said it was finished, but it needs some nice cantis.

Thanks, I just saw that Raleigh was voted to the uncool section of the Coolwall...
I'm glad some people find this one cool :D

Thanks, I'm glad the colour worked out fine, I really like it too.

I didn't loose the badge, I still have to polish the frame, the badge was taped on just for the pic.

There is a shorter stem [thanks to RAFbikes] with less raise on the way, with this one handling is way to slow.
