Think of all the neighborhood cats you could wave at on your Raleigh...wink_face.gif

Are Raleighs highly-regarded?

My current bike is a 1994 Bridgestone XO-3.  Chromoly steel, ishwata tubing.  I've been 51mph in it, and it weighs 27lbs, but I find it to be just as quick as an 18lb race bike... plus it can go off road.  More pics upon request.

The XO was a design before its time. I still have my Bridgestone cap from '90-'91!

Dang, I wish I could find one of those.  And agreed.  The XO series was marketed as a sporty city bike, but it's true spirit is that of a cyclocross bike.  I'm thinking of doing some cross competitions with my XO-3.  I've talked to Grant Peterson before, he discouraged me putting drop bars on mine, since originally it had the moustache bars, and the previous owner of my bike had put flat mtb bars on it.  I'm not sure about the moustache bars (and why Grant likes them so much), I tried them (since I contacted the previous owner and he still had them), but they did NOT feel racy to me and got in the way; I didn't like them.  So I decided to go the drop bar route, which ended up being a $200 project, but it was totally worth it.  I'd never get rid of my bike, but I'm still growing and I worry about outgrowing it.  I don't think I will though, and I can always raise the bars (which would require a taller stem, mine's as high as it'll go right now, yet they're still very low), and the seat.  Unfortunately it's been quite cold and wet out lately and I haven't purchased any cold-weather cycling clothes, but I'm going to.  As of now I haven't been able to ride because it's like 30 outside and I don't have any tights.

I have owned two Bridgestones, one in the seventies and one in the early 1980s. Great bikes! A ton of memories ridding them all summer. Both were red!

It's always fun to think about how my bike is 3 years older than me... I love it though.  It's a joy to ride.  Smooth, fast, and seems to be as strong as a heavy weight mountain bike (without the traction... lol).  Haha we should start a Bridgestone Bicycle Appreciation thread.

That is really cool, and I saw it a couple months ago... but who is the guy who's gonna be crazy enough to blow 42 grand on a bicycle?  I could get 20 professional racing bikes for that price.  I could get bicycles for an entire team.

I have one in black and love it. Using it daily. After getting a pair of Chrome Industries Midway Pro's for Christmas, I am getting very curious about their Citizen Buckle messenger bag.

He can easily get both.  He just needs to find the right cat.  Like mine, who doesn't need a litterbox, barely eats the cat food since she eats so many rodents, so she's virtually cost and maintenance free!
