Not seen any mention of this on RB , what are peoples thoughts on it ? other than it`s bloody expensive at £2500 for the complete bike or £1500 frameset. Anyone actually ordered one ?

Orders to purchase opened today.

In the current pricing of new specialist bikes, I don't think it's that expensive relatively speaking

Not bad, though I’d like a 52-42 chainset and 13-18 cassette, of course.

200 bikes and 50 frames.... I wonder who’s making them, and where did they get all that 753 from?!

I watched a video on the Raleigh website, working with Reynolds, and made in Taiwan, I recall (certainly not UK-made).

Watch https://raleigh-sb4059.com/ - I think he’s planning to review it as soon as he gets his hands on it!
For myself, I wouldn’t choose the replica over the original.

Got the frameset On its way but won’t be able to see it until April 2021at the earliest......
More of an investment I feel with only 50 framesets available in its special box also.

Here is the unboxing with plenty of really interesting facts and figures on the specification of this great looking Ti Raleigh tribute machine.

You of all people, Osk. Why?

They should have consulted you, who probably knows more about their business- or perhaps what should have been their business- than anybody.

Those are 531 weights.

Still, we look forward to your detail by detail photo comparison of this frame with the one it is supposed to be honouring. Maybe that's the point?

Watched the video earlier, and only just realized it is yours :oops: :facepalm:

Great video and quite interesting :)

Question, have they made a frame for other anniversaries, every decade for instance?
