Saw these TT bikes at a swap meet today. Raleigh/Huffy Olympic bikes. Supposedly found at the Huffy factory when it closed. Handlebars looked like magnesium. Single shifter.

John's Team Pro has re-ignited my interest in these bikes and I came across this recently: 1979 Raleigh SBDU Framesets Catalog/Order Form I remember the 80s versions that could be purchased at the dealer. But apparently, Team bikes had to be custom-ordered in the 70's and built by Raleigh's Special Bicycle Development Unit.

Yahoo Groups "Raleigh Team Pro" is the best source of info. Some of the members were framebuilders or managers at Ilkeston and actually built the SBDU frames.

I still haven't ridden mine more than a mile - been traveling, plus a rainy April. Hoping to go for a 50 mile ride this weekend.

OK, here is my American stallion I have been riding since 1992, fits like a glove.

Its a Dave Levy custom titanium 73/73 frame 56 cm with all campie. other than a newer derailler it is all original since 92. Still ride sew up tires.




Its been dumped a few times since new but shows no signs of fatigue or stress anywhere on the frame. it weighs about 1/2 pound heavier than my youngest son's carbon fiber pinnarello.

Anyone remember the re-badged Pony shoe the Ti-Raleigh team wore? I remember seeing a picture of a team time trial and they all had the very distinctive Pony stripe in bright yellow from some French imported magazine. Unusual for that time since most shoes were Adidas, or sidi and were typically black without flashily designs. It caught my attention that's for sure.

No, No, No deltas, would add too much weight and effect the aerodynamic properties

Totally like the side pulls, simple just like the lever adjusters but back then all that syncro stuff was not that good. My wife rides a vitus aluminum frame with the first gen syncro campie and it works but at that time shimano had the better system and I couldn't even think of not having a bike in my house without campie at that time.

Finished building up this one just before the winter. But fatbikes are not just for winter and snow.



It's a 2011 Salsa Mukluk.

I have decided that once you tried Dura Ace, you will never go back. I was a Campagnolo man for many years. Raced on SR, trained on SR, and crashed on SR. They were great and held up just fine. Lever shifter and campy sucked a big on with that. It didn't work. Dura Ace, here I come just to try it out. I couldn't break em'. Had them on my bike sever since. Now I ride SRAM on my Ridley. I love those levers. No pinching under the lever. OK in my book.
