At the Classic Rendezvous website, in the British Isles, Raleigh listing, there is a Reynolds 753 model that is titled Team Pro. Looking at it, I see TEAM prominently decaled. But, I don't see the word Pro or Professional on it. Is the work "Pro" assumed because it is a TEAM model? I'm a bit confused. I know in other makes, such as Miyata, they had a Miyata Team and a Miyata Pro. Some of the Italian models had Professional on models available to anyone, but I've heard others refer to the name "TEAM" only to denote those that were actually issued to riders that they sponsored, not the general public. Regarding Raleigh, what is the correct usage of the two terms? Lou Deeter, Orlando FL
