I had been looking for a cheapish road bike, to enable me to get out of an afternoon/evening and enjoy a nice ride.
Although I have several MTBs..its a bit of a bind getting to a half decent trail, and I didn't really want to compremise my enjoyment by sticking some skiiny road type tyres on one of them.
So, as per usual with me, I jumped off the deepend.
The budget was well and truly blown when a rather nice Raleigh popped up on the Sales Forum, along with some other nice period parts from the same seller.
A kneejerk PM, quickly saw a deal concluded...
So here I am...over double my budget, and with a few bits still to source.
Primarily a nice Eubios bar, and some pedals with clips.
My heart says she will be worth it, my Wife says it better be.....!!!!
Raleigh IMI Ti 54cm frame, with a load of mainly NOS or barely used period parts.
Avid Mag/Ti levers. Rockshox Psylo Race/SLwith lockout.
Easton EA/EC 70/90 25.4 riser bars. & 27.2 seatpost,
Rear 1st gen Crossmax. Black
Sram 9.0/SL Carbon effect gripshift....not half pipes though.
