Hi,

I wonder if anyone can tell me anything about this bike I have bought for a general runaround. I have put the suspension forks on for comfort, and cahnged some parts for the same reason. But before I cleaned off the few remains of the decals, it said M Trax 1000, but all the ones I have seen online and here seem to be bonded frames. Though this does seem like a quality bike, and is very nice to ride.
I have tried to upload the pics, I am new on here , so let me know if it did not work.

thanks all for a very interesting site.

Main ride a cove stiffee from 2000.
my wife uses a chromoly Claud Butler Cape wrath, about mid /late 90,s ? silver or maybe raw finish.

This I believe is 1996
You’ll find this bike in the 97 catalogue as An M-Trax Comp 100/200
The higher end bikes were the M-Trax Elite (Reynolds Optima 300/350 and Titanium 400/450 Frames)

Raleigh used the MTrax name widely. I had a Ti 2000 with the bonded frame with 2 Ti tubes. They made frames with 3 Ti tubes and I think even the full Ti frames were branded MTrax.
