can anybody offer any advice on the Raleigh 531 frames sort of late 80s early 90s? I'm thinking of getting one as a lightweight commuter...having lifted up my gaspipe-built Raleigh Ogre-Max and nearly pulled my back out I really think my body would welcome something lighter.
I've got a bit of a soft spot for the Raleigh Triathlon racer (which was 531)...can anybody recommend any specific models which are good, yet hopefully won't be too much of an attractive asset for a train-station thief!
531 frames are very popular for SS conversion so they are easily sold, hence a target for thieves I'm afraid.
They are really good frames offering a nice ride, much better that allow frames I should think.
You can pick a good one from ebay.
