We're a Raleigh Family, We're a Raleigh Family

Me and my Raleigh Twenty and Elena and her Raleigh Sprite. She found it in an arroyo a number of years ago and fixed it up a bit. It had probably the worst, most untunable 10 speed drivetrain I have ever come across, so I ditched and built up some 27" alloy rims on a sturmy archer AW hub. So now it is a low geared three speed and she commutes on it fairly regularly when the weather is above freezing. It is pretty nice as it has the longest seat tube on a mixte type frame I have ever seen. Works well for her height.
