I need another bike like a hole in the head, but I've a soft spot for Raleigh / Dyna-Tech, and that frame looks so cool, I just couldn't resist.


Well you clearly have at least some sanity left to have snapped that up. Look forward to seeing the build :D

It goes like this:

That's interesting, so are they Reynolds tubes bonded into alloy lugs?

Makes sense, as if I have my history right Reynolds was part of the TI group.

Anyway, that'll make it interesting to compare with my RSP 853.

Nice buy :)

I've got a Dynatech 500 with 2060 tubes, good at soaking up the bumps :D

Excellent, that's something my 853 is very bad at.

Planned build will be Shimano Tricolor 600 F&R mechs and brakes, most likely with 9 speed STI shifters, Middleburn RS4 cranks with a blue spider which I already have, 3T stem bars. Wheels will start off as Planet X, again because I have them. No idea on seat and post yet, I have a pretty nice USE 25mm post in blue which I could shim, otherwise something in silver.
