I worked as a bike mechanic part time at a Raleigh shop in Sheffield, whilst i was at Uni and got a very good deal on the bike kitted out with Deore LX groupset, I sold all that and got the frame set for very little money. Also had an UGLI Ti Fork as well, which I still have somewhere.
The UGLI fork was rather springy for my liking the V brakes really bend the canti posts out.

I just happend to also work in a bike shop about 1/4 of a mile from the Hope factory during summer holidays so got some good Hope deals as well. (O:

I think I recognise that little Raleigh. Were you the chap who rode with Simon (tall, big nose) and Ailsa (short blond bird)? Chris maybe? You were quick on the hills (up).
