Siziing a Raleigh Supercourse
Hello folks, I am brand new to this forum. I used to ride a Raleigh Supercourse in the late 70's and 80's. Somewhere along the way I quit riding and gave the bike to a nephew. I recently broke my toe and my doctor has suggested I refrain from any high impact activities in the future (running, tennis etc. are all out of the question).
So its back to swimming or bike riding for me. I hate swimming so I'm back in the market for a bike.
I have no need to go as fast as the new tech bikes allow. I was thinking I would enjoy a nice vintage supercourse as well as any other bike. I've been looking on e-bay and there seem to be several for sale, but the sellers are not using the old sizing measurements.
One bike for instance is listed as a 55 cm. Mr recollection was the Supercourse came in 21 1/2 inch and 23 1/2 inch frames. Am I correct in this? If so, which size would the 55 cm convert to. Also, is there anywhere on the bike that has the actual frame size. My 21 1/2 frame (if that is what it was) fit me perfectly and I would like to replace it.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
