Anybody in Central London own a Raleigh Royal?

Hi everyone,

After lots of looking around and checking discussions on this forum I think I have settled on buying a Raleigh Royal for an upcoming tour in Spain. The only thing is that I can't find any LBS in London which sell them. Does anybody on the boards own one and live in Central London so I could at least have a look at one in the flesh, and get an idea of the size I would need.

Thanks in advance

I've just bought one for my son. I called about 20 shops before finding one! Raleigh are no longer distributing them. Apparently Raleigh are to replace the Royal with a new tourer in 2011.

You could look at a Dawes Vantage. About the same price.

Yeah the Dawes Vantage was another option I had looked at, but the Royal seemed to have more positive reviews. Where did you get the bike for your son?
