(closed)
Anyone know the price of the Raleigh Rush Hour Pro frameset? Build quality? Been trying to look online and have not really found anything?

Call Bespoke Bicycles on Lafayatte in BK. They're a Raleigh dealer. They'll have the price for you. I personally like the new all white Macaframa.

@ CRKLYN this years macaframa isn't worth it if you look it has the same geo as the regular RHP its about 200 bucks more just for a diff paint job

That's the point. It's also made in limited qualities. Unlike the Mash. Once it's gone it's gone. Which in turn will become a collectors item. Think ahead.

My point was that last years Macaframe had a tighter geo and better paint job. Simply put I don't think this years [b]downgrade[/b] is worth collecting its just bland/boring. If I found last years model in my size I would buy it in a heartbeat. Paying more for white paint and the word Macaframa doesnt make sense to me. I could do that in my garage for 20 bucks.

Different strokes for different folks I guess.

I like how clean and straight to the point it is. Yes, it's a repainted RHP, I think the extra $200 is worth it. It's still a collabo w/ a great artist Mike Giant and in limited runs. I believe its worth more. Example, if you were to buy the new Mac and the new RHP. Then tried to sell it down the line which frameset do you think will fetch you more money in the pockets?

What's the difference in geo? If you're street riding which a lot of us do. What's the point in having a bike with a tight geo? It doesn't make sense on city streets. Yes, it's quick through acceleration but, turning and getting through tight spots isn't forgiven.

Fuck that. The yellow 2008 RHP was the BEST one.
