Jimmy Carter may have said that but it was Clinton and a blue dress unless I am missing something about Jimmy Carter.

And the yes the bike looks great.

Jimmy Carter was a decent man of high morals. He was terrible at everything else, except carpentry.

I thought it had a flip-flop hub. or did they change it to just a single speed?

I think I said it in the thread over in the commuting forum but it's a good thing they went to horizontal dropouts instead of track drops.

Track drops + Fenders = PITA

Sort of like George W.? (Without the carpentry and decent man of high morals thing, of course...)

Nice bike.

This thread is useless without pics.

Ahhh, it doesn't matter, I visit the Raleigh site regularly anyways.

I got mine a week ago. I've only been on it a couple of times due to a bum shoulder, but this bike is pretty great. Although it's beautiful, it's a tank (in a good way). I have another SS that's much faster, but the One Way is perfect for inclement weather, less than ideal road conditions, and rail trails. I'm going to slap a rack on it and do a little day touring.
Cheers, mates!

Don't worry, we love hams, preferably in bacon form. And bikes.

But I personally prefer the Rush Hour...

That is nice, but I got a "fixed gear bike" and I have had it since 1998. Of course, back when they were not on any hipsters radar, we used to race 'em on the track. Mine is a DeRosa with all Suntour SuperbPro and Nitto hardware on it. Gaga over current day dreck, that wont see the inside of a velodrome? Now this is existential crisis. I originally posted the Rush hour as a good example of a modern bike which has got all the design elements right on a commuter bike - Horizontal dropouts, fenders, canti's
:mad2: :aureola: :eek:
