Raleigh Bicycles: SSCXWC Philly Frameset

For this year’s SSCXWC, Raleigh designed a limited edition cross frameset, complete with the Tamland dropouts (which look damn fine). Wait, a SSCX bike with vertical dropouts? What’s going on here? Well, as per the details here on this high-tech PDF, Raleigh is actually encouraging you to chop your derailleur hanger into a bottle opener. Which, I might add, is fucking amazing.

The best part is the price: $670! Scoop one up at the SSCXWC Philly’s webstore!

Beautiful Bicycle: Team Raleigh Track

“Red and yellow, kill a fellow…”

Maybe that’s why I love these old Team Raleigh track bikes? There’s something venomous about them. Like some predatory beast, I loved looking at the old photos of British steel eating their competition alive on the boards. The last time I was in Melbourne, I shot another Northside Wheelers in-store display, classic racing track machine, that bright red Cecil Walker. They’re both the same owner, with an impeccable taste for steel race machines.

This one’s a keeper! See more for yourself in the Gallery!

Raleigh’s TI Team Replica
RaleighTEAM

Now this looks real good! Raleigh’s TI Team Replica is already 50% sold out, just via the pre-orders and it’s easy to see why. Here’s the scoop:

“Celebrating more than a century of producing performance bikes for athletes at the highest level; this is a replica of the bike used by our world dominating TI-RALEIGH TEAM bike of the early 1980s. The frame and fork are 100% Raleigh designed, manufactured using Reynolds 525 tubing and equipped with Campagnolo groupset and Cinelli bars and stem to recall the era as best possible.”
