Direct quote from the catalogue.

'The Super Lightweight Reynolds 531 ATB frame and forks are built in Raleigh's own lightweight unit and designed by Gerald O' Donovan.'

Well I'll bow to your knowledge and accept that then.

I've ridden a few of these Raleigh 531 ATBs and been totally underwhelmed by them.

Heres my one that was almost too far gone - serial number 'SB 8387', this seems to be one of the last frames built at Ilkeston

I wondered how long it would take before one appeared on the forum.
