Going to the bike jumble at the Velodrome tomorrow so might change my mind again.
As it's a nice day I took the opportunity to take a picture of the frame set I'm looking to build up.
Spent ages waiting for a nice one in my size so I want to be happy with the final build.
I found this old thread by using search. Did you ever get the build finished?
Basically, I'm looking to 'retromod' my Ti, so I can race it in the LVRC next year (I happen to alos be 40 next year). My plan is to fit 11sp campag (hopefully record), and use my usual race wheels (boras/shamals).
i know this is partial sacrelidge, but I just love the raleigh, but don't ride it enough. If it had modern stuff it woudl get ridden in the spirit is was made.
I did build the Raleigh up and eventually used period Campagnolo Nuovo Record because the frame was too old to use modern components, in addition to no braze ons it had nutted brakes so there were too many compromises to get a modern group set to work.
I eventually sold it to buy a later frame that was more suitable and built that up with modern components.
I'm on the look out for a Red frame to build up the same way.
Never miss an opportunity to post pictures
