look like leader 725 seafoam green. how's the geometry between the raleigh and 725?

It is definitely tighter on the Raleigh, and build quality is better also. Cheers!

How did you repaint this frame and how much did it cost you? Done professionally? I kinda want to do the same to mine (I have the exact same frame as you, it looks like)

Posted over 9 years ago

pedal-faster says:

I sandblasted the frame and then primed and painted, sanding very lightly in between. I did it all myself. Cheers!

I paid $599 plus tax. If I remember correctly it was a small run of frames.

looks a bit like the macaframa frame with a different paintjob. like it though better than the macaframa...

pedal-faster says:

Thanks alot! I think it is the same as the Macaframe but I'm not positive.

Posted almost 11 years ago

TRACKER

TRACKER says:

The maca frames seems to use half the tubing from the 2010 frames and half the tubing from the 2008 frames. Seems like they had tubes leftover and combined the 2 older frames to make the macaframa frame.

It's a pretty nice build. I must say, I've never really tried Cadence bar tape, but I would suggest you try Lizard Skins instead. Very comfortable.

It's so expensive though. Is it durable?

Lizard sins are very durable. Even when wrecking or falling down the tape holds together swell!

Thanks alot! I knew that not everyone would like the new color but I'm happy with it! The stock paint wasn't that bad but there were too many logos and I thought it looked too busy.

how hard was it for you to get the rando's on the tb-14's?

Posted about 11 years ago

pedal-faster

pedal-faster says:

The Rando was brand new so it was pretty hard. I thought i was going to pinch the tube for sure.

Posted about 11 years ago

arelyt

arelyt says:

True. I got mine on brand new with help but i recently got a flat and I couldn't get the rando back on and neither could the bike shop, so i bought a new tire haha. i was just wondering if anyone else ran into this problem...

I heard the tb14s are a bitch when you try to install the tires on them, im getting soon soon. And I don't think they can be much harder than trying to get the gartor skin onto the rear Reynolds rim.

Painted it Celeste green? Are you gonna throw on Raleigh Decals on it?

Posted about 11 years ago

pedal-faster

pedal-faster says:

Yes, I had some Raleigh decals made for it. I'm picking those up tomorrow. As far as the color, it's a Montana color called Malachite I believe. It does look very close to celeste. I have always wanted a celeste Concept, but they are hard to find in good shape around here so I figured, why not! Do you like it?!

Posted about 11 years ago

Benson

Benson says:

Oh so its kinda like a jade green! It would be cool if Raleigh decals were similar to Bianchi's. Post pictures after decals are applied! Looks good so far!
