It is around 58cm, only just enough ball to bar clearance for me :shock:

Once I change the stem to something like 10cm the fit will be fine. So if any of you want to swap a nice polished 12cm Cinelli stem for one a bit shorter maybe we could sort something out? I may also change the bars to 40's from 42's for no other reason than I like the look of a narrower bar.

Hello bikemeister2000,

the Torus of Lamima was a 1994 Torus STX with a complete Shimano STX SE from Raleigh Germany. Including the purple U.G.L.I. fork and purple Dynatech stem, the original Price was 1999.-- DM at each Raleigh dealer in germany. The former owner was changing only the fork and stripped the decals. The frame Number should start with C for the year.


Not exactly right, but nearly. The original group was a STX, not STX RC. The previous owner did not touch the decals, this was my work...and if he did not tell me a lie, he did not change the fork - it wa sold to him by a shop with the Marzocchi XC400 (unfortunately of course, i would have prefered the in my eyes nice U.G.L.I-Fork)

Would you have a scan of the catalogue with the 705 in? I have never seen one with this colour scheme.

Thanks

I thought I'd post this pic here for the other Raleigh fans. The frame is how it came to me with the X-lite on the top tube. Although its not original I like it and its probably staying.

Please excuse the positioning of bar-ends, saddle etc. I didnt want to start trying to set anything up until i decide what's happening with the forks...

Sadly not, but I think it was 1992. We used that frame for the Delta Racing Team. Quite a successfull venture including winning the RTTC 100km team time trial.

FAO Bikemeister...

Could you please help me sir. I have (had) a 1991 Raleigh Dyna Tech Sentinel. The downtobe came out of it's lug about 2 years after I bought it and Raleigh replaced the frame for me.

When I was sent the new one, I received a letter stating that because the old Reynolds 2055 tube set was no longer in production, they had replaced my frame with a newer Dyna Tech frame (titanium tubing). The frame was then repainted and badged as the old 1991 Sentinel (very nice of Raleigh).

I have since lost the letter I was sent, but wondered if I provided frame numbers etc, whether I could find out exactly what frame I was given. I have a feeling It may even be an M-Trax frame?? But am kind of hoping it is still technically a Dyna Tech.

In all honesty, I really don't mind what frame I have, but it is more so that I can accurately state what I have.

Cheers in advance.

Very sad day here, my MT4 has died :cry:
Tragically, most likely whilst wrestling with a welded in BB :evil:

That's the underside of the chainstay in the pic, don't think there's anything to be done with it (unless anyone knows better).

Wow! That is bad luck but I've never seen anything go like that along the full length of the chainstay.
