Hi,

Just picked the Quantum up, now I have a pair of Dyna-Techs. I will give it a good clean/service and post some more pics.

Only thing that is not original is the front rubber, 200 - 400 hundred miles in 20 years? Rockshox also needs some TLC, a little oil leaking nothing major.

Can't wait to get this on the South downs to see what its like.

Well chuffed!

Clive

You should have bought my white one last year - then you'd have had a trio and would only need the yellow to complete the set...!

I had one BITD in small size and it was one of the best handling and quickest frames I've owned, These are lovely, a delight to own.

Loving the Quantum.

I was just telling Sinnerman how I used to go into the Raleigh shop in Plymouth and just stare at that bike.

Jealous :)

My wife has not noticed the Quantum yet, they all look the same to her.

Currently scrubbing 20 years of black sticky stuff off, hard work! Only the chain to go.

This pic is the worst bit, not bad really.

Think I have found a Trail Dawg for the front rubber, just needs a better saddle.

Comments very welcome.

Thanks
