Hey guys,
Big thanks to Bernie for bringing his bike over. We did a video on it and he also brought over a sign to hang on the wall. Check out the video.

Bernie has some fun bikes, like the Raleigh Competition that looks like a Gran Sport!

This is how it looked when I got it from the original owner's daughter. I was surprised to see suicide levers on it. My future plans are to install barcons, then wrap the bars in solid red or black, but for now, I like the two tone tape.

Hot Springs National Park, Ark.


nice example!

I like them so much, keeping two of them. One has been updated to Tiagra 3x10 with a mavic ksyrium wheelset and the other I kept mostly original. The original is currently riding on 700 but once the original 27 are rebuilt and polished, I plan to go back to those with 27 x 1.25 Paselas I stripped the clear coat and ordered new decals as well.. I like riding the original the most, the Altus group is just so smooth...
