Sheldon Brown 's 1974/2002 Raleigh/Baylis

raleigh-baylis09

I bought the 28 hole track hub cheap on closeout quite a few years ago. This wheel was cannibalized from my Raleigh International, which is now a sad and lonely frameset. I'm running Sun M14A rims, Continental Grand Prix 23 mm folders (rather skinny for somebody my size...)

Current gearing is 42/14, rather higher than my usual 42/15, but great fun as long as I avoid hills.

The NOS Wippermann chain was made in "West Germany" and spent a long time in a warehouse covered with cosmoline.
