It was in our house... :roll: Wanted an SBDU Raleigh, probably about 19" - got something called a Sun Solo instead. Probably about 23". I felt like Adrian Mole when he gets a no-brand racer and his flash mate gets a lightweight.

Sad it was stolen - A man doesn't get over that kind of trauma easily! I'm still in therapy after my sister threw my Carlton away......
