After having just built the explosif I saw this frame and had to have it :wink:

So I stripped the kona down and built all the parts onto this lovely raleigh :D

I think it came out really well and rides superb.

Chris.

Can we have a re run of the Raleigh coolwall? 8)

That is a very nice frame indeed Chris. Think you've done it proud with all that blue bling too, very Raleigh.

Crikey, some people are never satisfied, are they? No sooner gets a new lover than he jilts her. So the poor old Explosif is lying unused and forgotten in a shed, sobbing.

How do they compare out on the trail Chris? And I'd be interested to know the respective weights too.

I must admit, I thought Raleigh were using the M-Trax name for their ti bikes by 97, but did they use both brands alongside one another perhaps?

Another stylish build Chris.

I think, to finish it off perfectly, I'd have Gil reproduce the Raleigh decal in blue to pick out the blue components and cables.
