Just a few pics of my RSP Ti. Forget the Jamis decals. It is an RSP Ti Frame

I moved from Raleigh to Dawes and looked after the Jamis brand. Changed the decals over at that time and regretted it ever since :(
Wish I could get some of the RSP ones we used at the time.

Nice! - (even with the Jamis decals) . The forks (Magura/Rond Quake) are a treat to see as well, with the HS-33 "Firmtech" mounts.
All Magura/Rond from that era seem to be very underrated, for some reason. Personally I think they're great forks.
Thanks for posting an unusual and interesting bike.

i had a set of the firmtech brakes on some quake air forks on my voodoo bokor. very underrated. they had very good damping, all the adjustments made a difference, they were stiff in the rigth directions, and they look great imo. mine are being looked after by a friend, and i have first refusal if he ever decides to sell;)
its a shame they got bad press abck in the day, some had a bolted crown, like my air forks and had no problems, but the bonded crowns on the cheaper models could work loose, although the warranty was first class.

Could Gil, decal-meister, sort out some RSP ones for you? Worth looking him up, I'd say.

So we are looking at the bike of the month selection, I like this one but how old is it?? I'd probably go for an older bike but this is a dreamy velo indeed.

The frame is a made-to-measure Raleigh Special Products Titanium frame and was constucted in 1997.

Frame drawing and geometry by Justin Stevenson. Raleigh SPD, Dawes, Saracen and now at Whyte.

Hers a pic of mine it was £1400 and had it 15 years but it broke last year. Bad welding and warranty is 15 years so raleigh say its out of date.
