Single speeding all over soulth London
Man, these Kili's are soo good. Big inspiration for my Raleigh. Thanks @WimVDD
That kind off answers my question #2.
I have been handed down this Raleigh RSP called "orange peril". It had a tough life since 2006 when my friend bought it off a colleague, having been mtb, long distance tourer and commuting rig for 2 other friends over the years. Now its living with me and is put to work as intended again.
Its rusty and probably none of the components are original but I like it.
Two questions: what year and model is it? Its probably from around 1999 as dimensions and features are like this 450 . Reynolds Optima means its newer than 1994.
Second: I would like to change the cranks as they are worn, get stuck on my shoes and I prefer 170 mm. I do like hollowtech II but wonder if it will destroy the look?
I have not tried it, just came to my my mind: would a star nut inserted into the fork from underneath work?
I believe they are banned on this forum. There is a silent agreement not to post about it since the supremacy of front loading has been established.
I dont know anything about vintage road frames
Raleigh Dynatech 625 Ti Frameset - 54cm
Your bikes: WOW
Definitely worth stiffening it up.
Did some cycle touring southern Italy on a foldable last year. Very surprised that the old gas pipes didn't break but the flex made for some sketchy descents.
Excited to see the finished product.
Finish looks really good. I prefer paint anyway. Mind sharing how you did it?
The klunker king looks sooo good. Really like the paint job. Homebrew as well?
