Cool, I used to have the (I think) M600 Ti back in the day, it was Blue and certainly had Ti bars. Sold to a friend then it was stolen :(

Incidentally, are the bars alloy or titanium? They're not attracted by a magnet, but can't believe Raleigh would do Ti bars, even though they're painted the same colour as the Ti tubes.

I remember the Dynatech Diablo STX used to come with a Ti bar. It was straight, unpainted, and with a shim where the stem held it. The one I saw snapped after one or two years of moderately hard riding, fortunately while the owner was practicing wheelies at the local park, not on some gnarly descent!

It's true, Raleigh did make very nice bikes in the 90s! But I think the presence of the Raleigh badge was a turn-off for many, because of the implied (rightly or wrongly) association with the low end bikes that many rode as children.
