1997 Raleigh Torus Titanium. 

This frame came from a member on here. It's history can be traced through every owner it's had from new on this site!

It's a 1997 Ralegh Torus Titanium. 

I build it yesterday as a singlespeed build to see what the weight would be, 19.7lb. 

Image


It was ony built as singlespeed to see what the weight was. I rode it down the road and back and then started putting gears on it. 
Everything is complete now except for the grips, tyres and front mech (on it's way from the Netherlands). 

Image

While I'm waiting for the front mech to arrive I've put a piece of inner tube over the BB shell to prevent damage from the chain.

Weight is now 18.75lb with RC31 (no pedals)
