Hi folks, I have succumbed to latent schoolboy fantasies and have bought a companion for my current Raleigh 531C race see here

The frame is one size down from the 531 as I prefer to ride with a longer stem and seat post. The pedals will need to be sold as I have Look cleats on my shoes and I'm not a fan of the saddle. I can't wait to put some different tyres on it and give it a spin, however I think longer term it will form the basis for a project so watch this space.

Here it is -

The purple is very fetching isn't it!

Rode it for the first time on tarmac yesterday and it feels great, some how feels more 'underneath me' than my 531C. Might be the smaller frame size I guess, the saddle is remarkably comfortable.
