718_062 Raleigh Technium

This is a classic Raleigh Technium that has been in the shop before.  What makes this frame special is that it is an early aluminum frame.  First time through a few months ago, we built up a Velocity B43 Rear wheel.

This time around we installed a new bottom bracket, crank, pedals and chain.

You may also notice that this bike has no brakes.  On all bikes that we build from scratch, brakes are standard equipment, as it is technically illegal to ride brakeless in NYC. However, this bike was more of a repair/retrofit, and the client didn't want brakes...
