I first fell in love with the 600AX groupset, then looked for a frame to suit it. I got this 531c frame some time ago but just had time to get it built up.
So here we have the Raleigh Road Ace. My previous ride was a Nigel Dean, this is so different. I've always loved riding but now I love my bike.
Excuse the tape holding the pump and none period bottle cage.
It runs so smooth it is pleasure to be on. Even at 40mph down from Harewood it felt secure even on it's 28yr old tyres.
This was my first ride Otley
The average was quicker than that shown at 15mph
