(image link doesn't work on W10)

bought as a change from the usual Gunmetal; the colour seems to be the only difference. Good sturdy workhorse as always, nice to have the Twist grip gears work the same way as the rest of the stud ie tightening the cable shifts down,

Not quite so easy to hoik onto shoulder at stations as the previous Raleigh (badged Dahon) but I'll live with it, bought from ACycles not only the best price but also being from France has the brakes the right way round and orange wheel reflectors (although no bell??? so £1 from Tiger)

love it!

I had a D7 with a Nexus, lot of problems with the nylon locking ring coming loose so went for normal gears on my 2 Raleigh versions
