Your Raleigh will be considerably lighter than the Dawes. My 501 Scirocco is great to ride and flies along. Pity I didn't have it rebuilt for Sunday , you could have had a go , it's Velo sized at 24" .

Its a 24" frame I'm getting, bit rusty though so a basic rattlecan respray will be needed. The Dawes forks should fit and all the other bits so a noticeable difference should be possible :)

The nice young woman from the tractor & trailer early on, "V" man managed to get her name in a matter of minutes (might have been seconds, am no sure) he was like poetry in motion :twisted:

I'm trying to mind if he made it up to the top of the first climb in time to chat up the Devon totty? I'm thinking her boyfriend saw Velo approaching, and dragged her back to the car and did a speedy U-turn before he could deploy his manly charms.

I'm still wondering how the tea-shop lady resisted...
