Raleigh Record Component Compatibility
Hey everyone, I got myself a 75 raleigh record and am looking to upgrade some components. I am curious to know whether the geometry is the same and I can start throwing everything together. Thanks so much for your help.

This isn't so much a "framebuilders" question as a "bicycle mechanic" question, but... you should have no problems putting modern components on that frame. The only small hassle will come on the rear triangle- it's probably 120mm width, while modern hubs are 130mm wide. Spreadig the rear end on a steel frame like yours is a trivial job for an experienced mechanic.
