Bought this way back in 1991. I've hardly used it since '98 when my first kid came along but it has always been kept in a garage or shed so is in decent condition.

Spec as follows:
Raleigh/Reynolds 2055 double butted tubes
Reynolds Cr-Mo fork
Shimano 105 52/42 chainring
Shimano 13-23 7 speed cassette
Shimano Exage 500EX derailleur , hubs and brakes
Shimano RSX STI levers
Alesa 700c rims
Profile handlebar stem

I changed the original handlebar stem for a shorter Profile one and also swapped the original downtube gear shifters for the RSX ones when they came along (don't think you could get them when I bought the bike!).
The chainring is also not the original one.
The RSX levers are a bit unreliable now so will need fixing or replacing but apart from that the bike is ok.
There's also a wired Cateye computer fitted which I don't need as I bought a wireless one for my new bike.

Offers welcome, however low, I'd just rather someone made use of it than take it to the dump.
Collection only, I'm in Baldock, North Herts.

£30 or nearest offer.
Forgot to say, the bike has no pedals. I have some pictures I can email to anyone that is interested.

If stedlocks doesn't have it and you're able to post I'd have it for my mate on the south coast.

I'll try to sort a pic out later, but I am very happy!!

It is in remarkable condition, only tiny marks on the frame and absolutely ready to ride!
I spent a couple of hours last night sorting the shifting out as the cable had slipped through the rear mech and it would only get 3 gears on the rear..... Now it is spot on and rides surprisingly well!

There are still some bargains to be had....
