Crikey, ive been rebuilding a 531 framed Raleigh for 2 months now....not continuously, but just here and there. Its so nearly done and now i got to leave it for another week. Got the final few bits today, bartape, gear cable, etc etc...only to find the other cable i already had is too short ..by about 30mm Rode it up and down the road..it certainly seems smooth. Brakes are cr@p but i'll play with them later. Rear deraileurs work well, cant set the front till i got another cable. I'll post some pics soon, once i've got it all sorted. But nearly £200 for the rebuild ...i didnt think it'd cost that much ...and theres still some old bits i'd rather replace IF i could be bothered, IF it were REALLY necessary, and IF i could justify it endlessly to SWMBO Anyone else caught out with just how much it costs ??? Anyone else f@rting about doing a job for weeks on end ??
