So Raleigh's are uncool and this stuff with it's poor finish and an apeal fixed at the new to mountain biking are cool. Same people just want to be another state of the united states of what ever. I don't mind manrin being voted cool but I did mind Raleigh going down. no acounting for taste


I´ve got a Carlton built Raleigh that might be cool, best mtb´s BITD were for the main part from the US of A though, though that´s no excuse for the UK´s masochistic foreign policy with the US.

I can see your point but DNA were pretty dam good. I love the bikes from the states but I do get a bit fed up when readind a history of mountain biking. You would think the first people to ride off road were all over there. I'm 54 and was puting noblies on my bike since I was 12. A guy in our club, the maldon bicycle motor cross club, who's dad was good at making things turned up with a racer with cyclo cross tyres, flat bars and his dad had rigged the shifters to the bars. Clive Goodchild R.I.P. could wheely for ever and did drop offs as good as the ones in at Chicksands. OMG I am an old codger. How did this happen, help someone stop this stuff coming out of me.
