    This is a great thread. I'm contemplating cold setting my '73 Raleigh Grand Prix. The rear hub measures 105mm. I'd like to move away from 27" rims. I find way more options with 700c's of course. I'll...

    Just grabbed this today at my LBS. 1973 Raleigh Grand Prix. It's not a fixie yet. I've got to change the hub and probably the rims along with a few other things. Most of it's original.

    Good point. I guess I should be asking what hairnet is pointing at. So the Swallow is built more for racing and the B17 for touring. I'm not a racer, but was wondering if the Swallow would work for a...

    I apologize for the noob question. So the B-17 seems the most popular. I noticed some of you guys were the test group for the Imperial. Is it better? I honestly like the look of the B-15 Swallow. It...

    Well, I just place an order with Richard for a Special. Unfortunately it won't be in until mid October. I'd rather wait and get what I want. In the mean time I'm ride a MTB or the roads:-/

    You can go as wide as a 28mm on the Special. I don't think I'd really need anything over a 25mm to be honest, but that's all personal preference. The classic will handle 32mm tires.
