OK. NOW PRETTY MUCH GIVING IT AWAY.......................... need it gone as we are moving soon and I need to clear the house of the stuff we aren't taking with us.

If you lusted after one of these all those years ago, here's your chance!

I am selling my very rare, 1992 Raleigh Blueridge mountain bike. Call me if you need any more info. 07581 566274.

It has Reynolds 531 tubing, a lugged frame, it's a brilliant luminous orange (as bright as a high vis vest! Photos don't do it justice) and dark blue mix paint job, Shimano components, and is a really nice, rigid ride. The seat has seen better days (the fabric cover is worn and torn) but the foam itself is fine so you could just put a seat cover on it. The rest of the bike is in amazing condition for the age. It's a 22 year old bike! There are a few small chips of paint here and there, but nothing really noticeable. I see other early 90's Raleigh mountain bikes on here that look well used (battered!) but this bike does not! Even the brake blocks look almost unused! There is some fading on the handlebars where paper stickers used to be (I peeled them off as they were nothing to do with the bike and weren't put on by Raleigh) but it all adds to the character of the bike. It has STI thumbshifter gears (I believe STI were the one of the first if not THE FIRST incarnation of thumb shifter gears from Shimano) Exage brake calipers, Shimano 400LX front and rear mech and crank / chain rings.

It basically looks pretty much all original. The rubber grips on this bike were cut down to fit aftermarket bar ends which looked terrible (stupidly long) so I removed and discarded them recently. So you will need to get new grips (or bar ends if you want them). Of course, anyone buying a used bike would want new grips, you don't want someone else's sweaty grips!

This is a RARE bike in good condition. And with the junk bikes coming out of Halfords these days for £300, £110 for this bike which is way better than them in build quality, components and quality of metals used is a bargain. This is the kind of bike that even today, I get people walking past and taking a second look at. REMEMBER - THIS BIKE HAS ALREADY LASTED 22 YEARS! IT'S NOT GOING TO FALL APART LIKE THE NEW CHINESE ONES.

It is a large frame, suit someone in the 6'0 region. I am 6'5" and it is a tiny bit too small for me, but I love riding it anyway and was planning to buy a slingback seat post to give it an extra bit of length.

This bike is ready to ride. It is serviced and cleaned. Tyres, even though they are period tyres of the 90's era, are STILL good! You can ride this home if you need to. I am happy to meet at Crawley or Three Bridges train stations if that helps.

PICK UP ONLY. CASH ON COLLECTION. Call me on 07581 566274 for more info.
