Hi, just wondering what you guys think. I've had the holdsworth pro for a while now and love it, but I decided for short-of-cash reasons to sell it and get a cheaper bike. I managed to buy this raleigh team pro yesterday for a great price, and once I had a look around it realised that this is as well spec'd as the holdsworth pro! So now I must sell one. But question is which one? I cant decide.... They both ride really nice so I couldn't split them apart in that department. The raleigh is 60cm and the holdsworth 58cm, and they both seem to fit nice (I would stick a shorter stem on the raleigh if I kept it) They are both pretty rare and I'm pretty sure I wouldnt be able to replace either one easily, should I want to buy another in the future.

Which one would you guys sell and which one would you keep?

Holdsworth Pro with Full Dura-ace group

Raleigh Team Pro with Full Nuovo Record group (apart from crappy shimano rsx crankset)

What's the logo on the levers on the Holdsworth ? Globe?

The "Fastback" frame on the Raleigh does it for me, by far the most elegant IMHO :)

I agree about the changes on the Raleigh! thats how I picked it up. If I kept it, I'd put it back to original. White wall tyres, white bar tape and nuovo crankset would all be on the ASAP list.

Not sure, I'll have to check. They are shimano levers with aftermarket hoods
