My unmodified Raleigh Twenty on the Train Home

My Raleigh Twenty Project

A little over a year ago, and not for the first or last time, I found my attention lapsing at work. I didn’t have a lot to do that morning and by the time lunchtime finally rolled around my train of thought had, inevitably, drifted almost completely towards bikes. After clicking around for a bit I ended up passing my lunch hour reading about Sheldon Brown’s love of the Raleigh Twenty, a hefty steel bicycle from the 70s with twenty inch wheels.
