    C&A, let's see your Raleighs!

    Your turn!
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    YES!!!!!

    Here she is. Right next to my bed (lower left) and dresser, right where she belongs. My wife sleeps on the other side.



    Thanks, Tom. You totally made my day.

    Maybe later on I'll even try to find a good background and turn the bike around. Not going to flip the stem though.

    Raleigh made frames, (For a lot of years) In 21.5" 23.5" and 25.5" I think your average American male would have been better served with a 22.5" or 23" even frame. But you take what you can get.

    Both mine are 23.5", fit great in the top tube length, but are a little tall in the standover. Oddly enough, I have very little standover clearence, but my seatposts are set at the right spot. You'd think they should be lower. go figure.

    My wife's Raleigh Route 66. She's since swapped the seat for a Specialized Jett:

    My Mojave after a few modest upgrades:



    New double walled rims, new spokes, new dart three fork, and some nashbar platforms. It will probably be the most bad ass 2.0 by time I'm done with it
