Raleigh MV8 SP Chat

Date Setup: 11th Nov 2015
Price Bought: SGD $580
With Owner? Yes
Description:
Custom color scheme (Machine Green) for a previously stock white MV8 which was too much work to keep clean for a commute.

Its a commute bike so kept to the principles of what I wanted for the bike.
Nothing fancy, but works to give relevant cycle training for the faster weekend rides.

Kept the stock trigger shifters.
A pair of cheap brakes levers off Taobao.
Changed out the brakes to Deore since the stock ones drove me mad giving wheel rub every now and then.
Don't need more than 8sp for most rides around so kept it for the cog.
FSA Gossamer crank with a 60 chainring for better speed.
Threw in a carbon seatpost I had lying around
'StarHubs' wheels from Taobao (had to respoke the rear with DT Swiss)
