I've been out of the loop for a while... Retro spending had to end for a while so I had to go 'cold turkey on ebay and retrobike
Great to see you flying the raleigh flag at the races.
You know, I emailed Raleigh with a link to your story and had a rant about them missing the 'retro revival' and suggested that they could do a lot worse than make an early 90's Team Bike re-issue frame and be proud of their racing heritage instead of hiding the brand behind this MTRAX badge as they seem to be doing in the latest ads.
It would get them a lot of airtime with the magazines for sure.
I saw the guys from Corratec [who Raleigh are distributing] on Cannock Chase some weeks ago and they told me that my email and your story was brought up at a product marketing meeting! Who knows maybe we will see a Limited Edition Team Raleigh re issue after all
In the meanwhile I have my eye on an R8 [bike, not car
Ride and smile,
I emailed (lengthy emails with attachments) them twice with requests for information and advice since just before Xmas - to two different Raleigh UK email addresses, and they didn't even bother replying!
