Just went into my local raleigh shop for a gander, and they've only gone and started making new burners!! white frame it was, green decals and black mags. sweet. but the price was harsh - £249.99... but i was still tempted :twisted:

What is the frame build quality like like on them?

I looked at a raleigh for my daughter from this years range and the welding was atrocious.

Nothing like the quality of even 2 years back, down below toysrus standard, but still at the £130/40 price tag. I hope it isn't across the range.

the new range or old school replica burners are poorly made,in fact chinese,there ok to pose on but to race about,ermm no...a;so they have all has paint issues and the decals peeling off as well as having dodgy freewheels,,dont get me wrong iam a big burner fan but the new ones reflect more about nostalga of the originals,,fashion over function
