Hi guys,

I was just browsing through some local marketplaces when I came across a good-looking retro mtb. It's advertised as a Raleigh Tangent, but the owner doesn't know that much else about it. From what I've gathered it's one of the company's mid-spec bikes from about 1991-1992, but other that that I'm pretty clueless. So, now you get to play the historian :D

I'd love to get some more info on the bike's history and heritage, and possibly an estimate of how much it could be worth in good condition because I kinda fell in love with it when i laid my eyes on it. I sincerely hope it isn't too shit or too entry-level.

Cheers,

Henri

Hi Henri, according to Mombat the Tangent was the top spec bike from the 1991 Altimetric series, which sat below the Technium range. A bit of googling suggests that it was produced until 94 at least.

Looks nice regardless, I'd say if you're happy with the asking price then go for it :D

Ah, fantastic mate! I guess I wasn't so handy with Google after all :P The seller wants between £130 and £195 for it... I guess I'll strike in below 150£. Or am I just being stupid about it? :D
