There are loads of great Raleigh bikes.

We ought to be more proud of our heritage brands and their output in other countries.

Exactly. But the ones I remember as being great are now collector's items. My Frame of refererence for MTB is Muddy Fox and Marin as being desirable in the late 80s/early 90s which was when I had the disposable income to become aware of such things but was seduced by an MG Midget and and Honda Super Dream. I had a bluey purpley Raleigh rigid MTB that i bought new in London in about 1987. I wish I knew what it was? It wasn't expensive and was my pub/breakdown bike and was fine but was bought for a purpose. Always hankered after the MF & Marin lovelies.

Love to know what the raleigh was so i could add it to my sig.
