Rolls gets my vote, basically coz I find them the most comfortable, I've had all the old favs like Turbos, Tornados and Concor profile etc but ended my search for a comfy saddle when the Rolls became available.

May I ask.....did Raleigh 'finish' a whole range of bikes in these particular Panasonic Team colours ? or was it confined to these "high end" well specced bikes ?

A pal who is only into 'modern' stuff has offered me one - minus the wheels, which he has used in another of his bikes - I wasn't aware of what a good frame it may be, if the paint job indicates it is a top end bike of it's day.

Cheers Dave - that is very useful.....I will go & have another :oops: look tomorrow & see 'what's what'.

Bit of an update....it is a Cadet by the looks of it, not the higher end frame - no Spaceship logo ?!.....currently stripped right down....but all the bit's in boxes, minus the wheels. Still very light...especially without the 'bit's attached !
