    This came through on Road.cc
    Raleigh for Auction

    It’s the wheels though.

    Were they stock on the bike?

    Surely been botched with 2 sets of rim sizes:

    Yes it will. The outer rim moves independantly to the inner rim. Sit on the bike and the outer rim moves closer to the inner at the bottom and further away at the top. The inner rim does not move in relation to the frame. The outer one does. Ther fore the brakes need to be on the inner rim.

    Or at least that is what is supposed to do, in reality it would just be rubbish!

    Increased rotating mass, a really good idea!

    Surely those are springs from sofa bed or similar? Just with a nice new coat of paint…
