Big fan of Raleigh bikes, deserves better pictures though.

What's going on with your saddle position and your bars Dam. :shock:

Can you list the model and the bike spec would be very interested.

That looks like the sort of saddle position they'd use in 50 shades of grey.

Trees, forest - any chance of some decent pics of the bike? Your set up looks interesting - and at the moment the pics make it look like it's been ridden into a wall at speed.

Amusing comments. :D
Is ADD contagious or something? LOL!

Saddle tilt is an individual thing - yes, no? One size fits all bar reach - yes, no?

Speed sensor looks to be on the back wheel for some reason. Cable ties could be for that.

Saddles are designed to be level, try raising it slightly and levelling it.

The bar shifters pointing down is a bit odd too. Hit a big pothole and your hands could slide off... If you need to have them down for extra reach then try a 10mm longer stem or something...
