Confused over my Raleigh frame

When I purchased my used Raleigh Team bike the LBS said it was a 2007 frame and I had no reason to doubt him since he is a Raleigh dealer. Today I noticed on the Raleigh website they have catalogs you can view back to 2004.

2005 looks to be the first year of the full carbon team frame and that bike is all black. The 2006 team bike is all black also with the outline of Faux lugs, the 2006 Prestige frame looks just like the Team bike I have just called the Prestige. 2007 and 2008 Team bikes are black and yellow, and the 2010 and 2011 Team bikes are redesigned and are both white.

Is it maybe a special/short run color scheme for 2006?

Anyone have any idea whats up?

I'm going to give Raleigh a call monday but wanted to ask the community knowledge base.


My Team Bike..

Just contacted Raleigh and after some research they found that in 2006 the Team bike was all black. If you wanted to buy just the frame it was Red & Black like the 2006 Prestige.
