This bike has come on the list for the second time and looks interesting to me. I am currently riding a similiar vintage Raliegh Trilite Scott Tinley model. I like the bike alot, but I like the upgrades on this bike, but don't know much about the components. at 300 asking it is worth getting some feedback. The site has photos, but I'm not sure how to post them on here, or if it is necessary. They are pretty small Also I am 6'4" about 230 pnds
"Raleigh Supercourse - Excellent & Upgrades - $300
1989 Raleigh Technium Supercourse 21 inch aluminum frame and fork with cro-molly rear triangle for softer ride. 14 speed. Shimano Exage front and rear derailleurs. Quick release front and rear axles. New in spring 2006 -- 2 red 700x23 tyres and 2 presta tubes, handlebar tape. UPGRADES new in summer 2006 -- down tube shifters changed to Sora brake lever/shift combination and 39 tooth inner chainring from the original 42 (helps on hills). New brake and shifter cables. Outer chain ring is the original 52 tooth biopace design. Quill stem replaced with an adapter to use threadless style handlebar stem with "pop-top" design (allows fast, easy replacement of the threadless handlebar stem without removing anything from the handlebar). Comes with shimano SPD clipless pedals, 2 water bottle cages, and quick release seat tube rack. Two weeks ago cleaned and lubed front and rear axle bearings, cleaned and oiled 7 speed cassette, cleaned and lubed chain.
Never done any multiple day sagged rides - only day trips and few of those (rode mountain bike mostly). Did the upgrades more for fun than any practical reason. Still don't ride the bicycle. Bicycle is in excellent condition.
CASH ONLY PLEASE "
