Hello all. What a terrific site. I'm a fit oldie (late fifties) and gravitating from drop handle bars and classic frames towards the Raleigh Grande (on offer at Halfords). It seems a lovely bike and very comfortable (tho I'd still prefer drops!). What do you think, guys? Is it better for those potholes but also ok for a run from Hastings down to Brighton? Hard to find drops on bikes which don't also have terribly thin wheels.
