Started out as a bit of fun project after getting a frame from e-bay.Always had a bike, but had never built one before from scratch. Just wanted to see if it could be done. Thank you Sheldon Brown for your help and inspiration, would not have got here without you.
In terms of practicalities the Raleigh frame was hard to find a stem for. Old Raleigh frames are the betamax of the cycling world I reckon. A few things reclaimed from local refuse tips and a bit of extra flavour to the composition. Love the Fat Franks which help with the pot holes in the morning cruise to the paper shop.

Nice Build! I love those old

Nice Build! I love those old rigid mountain bike frames.




Gotta be "Burly" around here. The trip down the High Street is not quite Paris-Roubaix, but the pot holes are pretty monsterous!
