Raleigh: Past and Presence of an Iconic Bicycle Brankd (Cycling Resources)
The aim of this book is simple yet ambitious: to produce, in a single volume, a detailed and complete history of the Raleigh cycle company of Nottingham, from its founding to the present. It covers not only bicycles but also motorcycles, cars, vans, munitions, motorcycle engines, and bicycle and motorcycle gears. The story of Raleigh is fascinating in many different respects - the people, the products, the production methods, and more. The personalities involved were many and various, ranging from the founder's ambition to make the best bicycles money could buy to anonymous "suits" almost running the company into the ground from fancy offices in New York. But Raleigh also deeply touched the lives of tens of thousands of other people who depended on it, directly or indirectly, particularly in and around the city of Nottingham.
1980 Raleigh SBDU Team Professional
TI Raleigh SBDU Team Pro 1980 TI Raleigh Team Pro 1980 serial no. SB 4074 Where it came from This machine started life as a 1975 531 tubed Team Pro SB215 purchased on 25 June 1976 in Houston, Texas, for $900. Frame fractured in November 1980 and replaced by Raleigh with a new 753 frame (serial no. 4074) with original components switched over except for the seat pin (a new Super Record 26.8 seat pin was purchased for $35 to fit the 753 seat tube). The original owner paid an additional $240 for the upgrade to the 753 frame. Purchased from the original owner on 3 April 2005. Returned to the road 28 May. Some history Headed by Carlton’s Gerald O’Donovan, Raleigh Specialist Bicycle Development Unit, was created in 1974 and housed in its own standalone factory in Ilkeston, Derbyshire, which was once part of the Rolls Royce works. The SB unit is best known for pioneering and proving the new Reynolds 753 lightweight tubing in 1974 although it made Reynolds 531 framesets as well. Initially, almost all 753 production was for the TI Raleigh Team (which was equipped with 753 frames from the 1975 season onwards) and other European teams with each team member of the Raleigh squad getting two or three frames per season. From 1974-77 it bought out most if not all of the 753 tubing from Reynolds (both Raleigh and Reynolds being part of the TI conglomerate of course) making it exclusive to Raleigh. Production increased to the point of offering framesets to the general public by 1978 at a cost of $475 in the US market including an Edco headset. The 753 was offered in track, roadracing and special time trials frames in the famous team livery, midnight blue or champagne. Initially Ilkeston turned out about 25 753 tubed frames a week c. 1977 and produced approximately 9000 framesets in both 531 and 753 for individuals and teams until its closure in 1986. Formed at the end of 1973 out of the former Carlton Team, TI Raleigh were the last great powerhouse team of the classic era, headed by Peter Post and featured a stable of mainly Dutch and German riders including Gerrie Knetemann, Roy Schuiten, Jan Raas and Bert Oosterbosch, each a world champion. In 1977 the team competed in the Tour de France for the first time with Didi Thurau wearing the Yellow Jersey for 14 days and Henny Kuiper winning overall 2nd Place. The following year, Gerrie Knetemann won the world road championship and in 1979 Jan Raas claimed the championship. The pinnacle was reached in 1980 with Joop Zoetemelk winning the Tour de France, the first and only time it was won on a British-made machine. When the team was wound up at the end of 1983, it had garnered a record number of 958 pro wins in its 10 years.

Mr. M and his Raleigh One Way
Mr. M commutes on this well-kept singlespeed, and comes in to check out new accessories and talk tech from time to time. He came in today and picked up the Nitto M-12 front rack and the SOMA Bullet light. He said he was gonna go home and install everything right away, and I asked him if he would come back when he was done so I could see how the parts looked mounted on his bike. He returned a short time later (rack and light skillfully installed), and I asked if I could get a picture.
