Really? I have heard of Raleigh frames easily passing the 100k MILE mark.
My biggest disappointments with my 1971 CrMo Nishiki frame were that in weight (27 lbs.), ride quality (spongy, leaden), and durability (20 years) it was not significantly better than the Peugeot UO-8 on which I hung its components after it died. The late 1970s Nishikis are so much better that I wouldn't mind owning one, if I didn't already have too many bikes, and if I could find one in my size (55cm C-T).
