I’ve been slowly doing up a Raleigh Pioneer Trail (the lugged one with pannier eyelets from 1995, in battleship grey, internal cable routing in top tube) with old Deore bits I had around - I’ve cold set it to 135, serviced everything etc and I’ve just found a crack in the head tube :( not the most exciting bike but kind of had my heart set on it and it’s got lovely geo. Does anyone have one they’d be willing to sell? I’m not sure how they sold them sizing wise but I want the one that’s 21” c-t-t.
Totally open to the burgundy version (lugged) too or the lugged one without pannier eyelets (pioneer classic maybe?) if you can confirm it’s got big clearances too.
Alternatively - any other exciting mid 90s hybrid frames with big clearance (the Raleigh can take at least a 45c) anyone had - Trek 700? Marin Stinson? I’m not afraid of cold setting a 130 to a 135 - I just want nice geo and either lugs or pretty welds :)
Cheers - I’m up north so would ideal want f+f posted but happy to sort something.
