Re: BBC Bias again

Re: Are my new Rockshox Reba forks real or fake?

They look like the right decals on the right fork to me. Some forks had serial numbers/bar codes on a sticker rather than stamped in. It's possible the sticker has come off or been removed.

Re: Philips Bicycle manufacturing - mid 1950's

Nice factory film - thanks. Amazing how things have changed; the workers seem to be wearing their civvy clothes and have no protective clothing. Especially the women in the spray booths with no masks even ~ wonder if they had any extraction in there? Health and Safety would have a field day nowadays...

Re: ... if this RALEIGH any good?

It looks like a mid range bike to me. 1980s at a guess. It has a Reynolds sticker on it (good!), looks like Alesa alloy rims, single pivot Shimano brakes, cotterless alloy chainset, decent looking pedals. Maybe the kind of bike that would have been around £300 in the 80s? Of the kind of quality whic...

Re: Specialized Epic

2013 will be pegged at rrp ~ if you walk into a dealer you may be able to haggle a bit, but there are unlikely to be any discounts on line. Once a bike is "last years", dealers have much more freedom to discount............if they have any left!

Re: What model was my old bike?

Probably a 501, 502 or 503; something along those lines. Try a search on Google images and Flikr :)
