For ROAD use, you couldn't go wrong with the MT4 set up as I have here with rigid Pace RC30's.
All you need to do is change the tyres to some semi slicks (Wildgripper Sprint S?)
And put a different road biased cassette on.

The bike's very light, lovely to ride
(ignore the low seat, it had been removed to be cleaned and took the pic as soon as I put it back - I'm taller than 4'6")

We're all secret Raleigh fans.

I'd make room for one of these:

I don't think Raleigh had much of an MTB range until 88, before that there were several levels of maverick none were purple and the early black/white mustang, with the Ozark and avanti in the lightweight range. In 88 things got more serious with the new mustang, maverick and maverick GT, then Memphis, montage and mirage. None were dark purple, the Memphis was lilac. Mirage went purple in 1990. That's where my knowledge ends.

Apart from noisy brakes,the montage is a nice ride ,with smooth suntor xct accushift and ovaltech

Unfortunately its gotta go to make space for 3 more quality builds (not activator) just need to take the fluro stuff off and convert back to standard:-)

Rsp 250

Rsp300

Neither are correct but the 300 rides like a dream off road and my gulf inspired 250 is a whippet on road. They are both keepers :D
