Hi, I'm bidding on this Raleigh Team Banana on eBay.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/170870993803? ... 1431.l2649

Can anyone tell the actual model? The photos aren't great but hoping there's enough detail to identify it.

It's just the run of the mill Hi-Ten model.

Won't set the world on fire but looks kinda nice.

Shame it has chrome forks now though, generally indicates the originals were written off in a crash.

Also if you are also 6'3" as per the seller then I would not buy this bike it looks very small I'd guess about a 53cm - 54cm, perhaps smaller...

Oh at the bottom of the listing it says 53.5cm.... :)

Far too small for someone over 6ft in my opinion.

Thanks for the replies.

I had only seen the 55cm measurement at the top of the advert when I placed my bid. I didn't notice the updated 53.5cm measurement at the bottom. I'm 5'10. 53cm is a bit on the small size isn't it?

Is £50 about right for this bike?

£50 is okay but I wouldn't go any higher than that.

A little on the small side but you can probably make it fit.

Decided to withdraw my bid. I'll wait for something the right size. Thanks for your help guys.

That was a good decision.
