During a late spring clean of our bookmarks folder we found this 4 minute video from Tyne Tees TV c.1994. It compares the difference between custom & hand-made cycles & mass-produced factory bikes. It's a genuinely great insight that shows the time & care taken by master frame-builder Dave Yates in comparison to the mass-produced lower end bicycles that Raleigh ended up churning out by the 1990s. Completely opposite ends of the scale of course, but it puts it all into perspective nonethless.
A great way to spend 4 minutes of your day :)

We're incredibly excited to see you all at this year’s Eroica Britannia, this is our first year at the new site in the heart of the wonderful Peak District.
Join us on a morning ride out to Epping Forest next Saturday (26th May). We're riding out to The Acorn Hut in High Beach where we'll stop for a cup of tea, a chin wag & hopefully a little bask in the sun...
