    I don't know if Raleigh are still a "thing" or decent brand these days but surely a few people still ride them?

    Anyway, if you're proud of your steed and want to show off please leave a piccy here :smile:

    I would, but since my Raleigh Vixen mountain bike needs repairs that would cost about four times its worth, it is headed for the great cycle shed in the sky as soon as its replacement arrives. To be fair, for an elderly beater bought on ebay for £35, it's done a great job of carrying myself and Smallest Boy around for a year and a half with no trouble, and served as my play pen while I learned to maintain a bike myself. I have no idea whether it came from Raleigh's 'troubled years', but I will remember it fondly.

    Oh, what the hell, here it is, outside Sainsburys waiting to take me, Smallest Boy and the shopping home. If it were a dog or a horse, you'd call it honest.

    ...so here's what I ride when back in the UK, a Raleigh framed, cobbled together 'pub bike'.


    Frame was made in Vietnam, according to the sticker on the BB shell .

    Single speed, plush ride with those Fat Frank tyres,

    Looking forward to some rides back there next week when I start a months hols in Reading, my hometown. Soaks up the Kennet and Thames towpaths where I do most of by jaunts, and out to Silchester is another good one :

    I need very little cajoling to post a picture of my Raleigh ;) so here it is during a ride round the local hills earlier this year:

    It's a 1997 Pioneer Jaguar which I bought new in Spring '98 and is currently on its third variation of drivetrain (24 speed with 44-32-22 chainset and 11-30 cassette - no summit is out of reach :okay:)

    Here is my Raleigh Criterium Triathlon 12 which I recently put back together after neglecting it for a number of years after the rear derailleur broke. I recently went for a ride on it with my friends and found it to be fast, light and agile. I am rediscovering the pleasure of cycling on it. 045.JPG

    I sold this Raleigh a couple of years ago, but can't resist an opportunity to post pics:
    1937 Raleigh Tandem 15L (restored)
    I still have a Raleigh Peak MTB - 1994 with XT gears. Bought for £15 from a charity shop.

    Raleigh are coming back into making decent bikes again, after a while of going down-market.

    I'll have to look for a newer pic, but this is my Raleigh Criterium. Needed quite a bit of restoration when I got it, and I still have a few issues with it. I love the full chrome forks though :smile:


    Since that picture was taken it's gained a much prettier Stronglight chainset, and some silver hand-built wheels which make it look much nicer. :smile:
