I'm after a bit of information about the 1993 Raleigh mountain bikes range. In particular the K2 bikes and even more specifically the Raleigh Apex.

It looks like the bike below, but for the sake of nostalgia, I'd really like to see the catalogue again if possible.

Thanks in advance.

I dug this out today, had one of the early peaks, 1991 at a guess, frame was replaced under warranty with a Raleigh USA Magic (still hanging in a garage waiting for some inspiration) which I think is the same K2 frame as in this catalogue. The original Peak had a design flaw/weakness where the seat stays met the seat tube/top tube.

Detail not great in these pics, if you would like better quality scans drop me a PM with an e-mail address and I will get them over to you.
