Anyone know why my Torus has two holes in the BB shell underneath.
One is larger than the other?

A-Drain Holes for water.

B-For Gear/Brake Cable Routeing Plastic Part.

C-For fitting the Raleigh optional Side-Stand

This can happen if the frame is too small for the rider and a long travel fork has been installed. Moreover, it seems as if he has been ridden in this section, sitting and with loading of the front wheel.

Or, as I read earlier, when holes have been drilled in the down tube to fit a crud guard.

Loving it!

Bikemeister, are you still in contact with anyone working for Raleigh now?

I wanted to know whether they have any plans to resurrect the RSP division, I understand they have some "SP" Racers made of Carbon, but they're not the same, I bet they're made in China.

I also wanted to know whether they have any NOS MTrax/Dynatech/RSP frames - I wrote them a lovely eMail, no no avail, no response, not even an acknowledgement

Anyone had any issues with the full ti dyna-tech frames and headsets. I finally managed to get a headset (kore) to fit the one i bought recently, but Chris kings, FSA, WTB and a Tiso headsets were a little loose I.e. could be fitted by hand.

I'm just wondering if this is a 'feature' of the frame, or wear and tear/signs of something more sinister?

I have a hope headset fitted to my Torus frame and it wasn't loose.

But I'm sure someone else with more experience will speak up in a minute.
