Thanks for the info. The dropouts on this Raleigh clearly are stamped Zeus. They do seem quite long. (This is the White model, and i hear - the first year for the Pro - perhaps they used Campy in later years ?)

I'll look forward to working with Greg. The handful of other dealers who've helped so far are a real treat to work with - refreshingly different from many of our local, 'just buy a new bike' dealers !

Thanks Rich Pinder Van Nuys CA
