Hi all. So I'm am selling my Raleigh Equipe.


TO VIEW THE PICS FOLLOW THE FOLLOWING LINK...

http://www.flickr.com/photos/97307791@N05/

I RECENTLY PURCHASED THIS RALEIGH EQUIPE AS A GEARED BIKE AND HAVE CONVERTED IT TO SINGLE SPEED OR FIXED. I HAVE BOUGHT GOOD QUALITY COMPONENTS TO COMPLETE THE CONVERSION AS I ORIGINALLY PLANNED TO KEEP THE BIKE FOR MYSELF.

I HAVE PURCHASED A SHIMANO OMEGA FLIP FLOP WHEELSET, SCHWALBE LUGANO TYRES, 44T FRONT CRANK (£65), 16T FIXED SPROCKET AND A 16T SINGLESPEED FREE WHEEL SPROCKET, SPECIALIZED RIVA ROAD SADDLE, RED RALEIGH BOTTLE CAGE, METAL TRACK PEDALS WITH STEEL CAGES AND WHITE FIZIK MOCK LEATHER PERFORATED HANDLEBAR TAPE. HAS ORIGINAL QUILL STEM AND ORIGINAL NICELY ENGRAVED HANDLEBARS.

RED CLIPLESS PEDALS IN PHOTOS NOT INCLUDED. I REMOVED THE OLD BRAKE LEVERS SO THE LEVER LUGS ARE STILL ON THE FRAME BUT THEY MAKE NO DIFFERENCE AT ALL TO THE LOOK OR PERFORMANCE OF THE BIKE. I HAVE LEFT THE RIGHT HAND ORIGINAL BRAKE ON THE BIKE AS I PREFERRED THE LOOK OF THIS BRAKE RATHER THAN PUT A NEW LEVER ON BUT THAT IS JUST MY PERSONAL PREFERENCE AND THAT CAN BE EASILY CHANGED. THE BRAKE AS IT IS WORKS SUPERBLY!

THE BIKE IS EXTREMELY LIGHT CONSIDERING IT HAS A STEEL FRAME AND I HAVE COMPARED IT TO A FRIENDS SPECIALIZED LANSTER AND IT WEIGHS PRETTY MUCH EXACTLY THE SAME. IT IS EXTREMELY SURPRISING HOW LIGHT THE BIKE IS. IT FLIES ROUND BENDS AND IS QUICK ON THE STRAIGHTS. I HAVE RIDEN THE BIKE AROUND 100 MILES IN ALL.

OBVIOUSLY AS THE FRAME IS A MID 80's CLASSIC THE FRAME DOES HAVE SIGNS OF WEAR AND A FEW SCRATCHES AS SHOWN IN THE PHOTOS BUT AS THE REST OF THE BIKE AND COMPONENTS ARE NEW IT ACTUALLY GIVES THE BIKE A REALLY NICE RETRO FEEL BUT WITH A PROFESSIONAL AND UP TO DATE EDGE!
IF YOUR IN TO THE OLD SCHOOL LOOKING BIKE BUT WANT A BIKE THAT CAN PERFORM WELL TODAY THEN THIS IS A GREAT BIKE FOR YOU.
FEEL FREE TO TEXT TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS TO 07714004898.

LOOKING FOR £330. CHEERS GUYS
