My Dyna Tech Ti.

Had it since I was 15, am 31 now. Love it, still so much better than I am.

Raleigh Dyna Tech 725Ti (Ti main tubes, 531 fork and rear triangle)
Campagnolo Athena hubs
Mavic Open 4 CD rims
Sachs Maillard Screw on 8 speed block (shimano spaced)
Campagnolo Veloce rear mech (soon to be replaced with early 105)
Campagnolo Veloce chainset
FAG BB
Dura Ace front mech
Tange Levin headset
Sora STI (because my early Ultegras broke)
USE post and Turbo matic saddle
Syncros stem and Profile road bars
Schwalbe blizzard tyres (puncture proof and 'zippy')

One day I am planning to rebuild it with all 1994 Ultegra. But finding it will take some doing!

I don't fancy Cannondales usually, but that one I would.

Hi All

My first post, so hello (lurked for a while, however...)

I thought I'd share my Super Prestige with you. I think it's an '88, but I'm not 100% sure. I got it for a song on eBay, but when I got it the paint was in quite a bad way in a few places. I wasn't to sure what to do (apart from keeping it!), so I looked at getting Argos to respray it. Then, for some reason, I thought that I'd send her 'home' to get it done. I had wanted to keep the original retinarta scheme, but apparently this is illegal now in Italy due to what's in the paint, so I did some hunting and decided on this scheme. It took 4 months from sending it off, but it was soooooo worth it - and the best part is that the lovely people at Tommasini even painted my name on the top tube. It also worked out cheaper than if Argos had done it!

I normally have deltas on it, but for some reason I can't remember, I'd put the Chorus calipers on it when I took the pictures. The deltas are back on her now!

Anyway, enjoy...
