I like running a wider front tire on my custom gravel rig. The builder actually made a generously wide front fork. So I am currently running 2.2" on the front and 1.9" on the rear. This has been nice...

Hello from the PNW!

Hi everyone! I did this a little backwards, as I already started a thread in the vintage bikes section. Anywho, I'm a female, runner and cyclist. Though, these days I do a lot more cycling than...

3alarmer thanks for the thread links, I'll have to check those out. My thinking is spot on with yours. My intention was to use this vintage rig as a commuter, so I can leave my much pricier builds at...

Yes, I understand the Record Ace was one of those models Raleigh put out from time to time, like mentioned by 3alarmer. It has been harder to find information about their step-through model of the...
