Just wondering
Should all Raleigh RSP bikes be under 1997 even though they were made up to 2000?
It just seems unfair to put a ‘98 model on the other forum with modern bikes
Any thoughts ?

I think it’s pretty simple really if a bike was made in 98 it goes in the 98 forum, you are always going to get models crossing any break in the forums. I guess the real question is should the break still be 98? Just my thoughts obviously or perhaps an extra sub forum?

Was just wondering because the RSP frames are now a thing of the past and from another era

I think 2000 should be the dividing factor -

I would actually go the other way, up to 95 then 96-2010 then maybe a 2011 onwards(further classics) at the moment you can have a 98 build thread next to a 1 year old dropper post for sale just seem to broad to me.

That’s sensible and I agree
A proper old classics thread pre ‘97
A 98 to 2010
And a modern thread post 2011.

As looking for For Sale stuff is complicated on the 98

No point debating.
Follow the dates we have, Kona and Rocky Mountain made bikes from the 80s and still do today, many of the models span the whole era.

If it a 98 model, post in 98+ section.

Or if you don't care then post anywhere you like and see if a mod moves it.

We're still expecting a new forum update with improved pictures etc.
A change of forum structure isn't going to happen any time quickly. It would need John to actually see the posts ;-).


He does however keep the forum ticking over for us :-).

No to any change in dates. A 2009-10 Bike is not retro.

As as fluffy days, there’s an issue with other forum updates being promised and not delivered.

I was discussing a new RB jersey design with Gil recently. I can make that happen and create a thread with orders in one place for a one-time bulk order and delivery pre-Xmas if there’s demand. I’ve said to the Mayhem 19 group I’ll do an RB MM jersey but that’s still months off.

If you want stickers PM Gil
