Couldnt agree more mate, people often forget the humble begginings of something, and BITD not everyone could afford the prestige brands, i am guessing that most people in their youth, (unless they were very lucky) had humble "MTB's"


if you couldnt have afforded the prestige brands you would (like me) spend less than it cost on an activator 2 on a semi decent low end bike just like the british eagle shadow deore lx that is for sale at the moment.

yes bought new with reynolds tubing a decent groupset for £250 in the same year raliegh were knocking out these bso at nearer £280.

These have noting to do with MTB, they should be thought of in the same way of SegaMega Drives and original Supersoakers, kids toy that it all.


just lilke to add, these were aimed at kids, Raliegh were selling decent rigid bikes at the time!

I don't think brand snobs give a toss mate. If you want to waste time and money on rubbish then go for it.

(shrug) for somebody who seemingly doesn't give a toss, I'm mildly curious as to what attracted you to a thread about Raleigh Activators...

I certainly stirred up a hornets nest :evil:
It's really a clever ploy to double their money to a tenner!

I know I'm an old bugger and not knowing much about brands and equipment ,I'm just happy to listen and learn from you all gonna search my local junk shops that keep bikes to see if there is anything worse
:D

As I'm just about to pop over to Cumbria to collect an absolutely pristine Mk 1 Raleigh Mustang (The white and black one) bought on eBay for five English pounds, I thought i would check out a Raleigh thread thats running at seven pages to see what the craic is.

How many Mustang owning brand snobs do you know then Neil? (apart from PeteMcc who has six).
