I bought this bike on sale and could not be happier with the bike. The Campagnolo Veloce shifting is crisp and flawless so far. The Reynolds 631 frame and the 28mm tires makes the ride feel very smooth. The geometry feels somewhat relaxed yet the bike still feels quick and responsive. I did add a Brooks saddle and I found no clearances issues installing 45mm fenders. I am very, very satified with my Raleigh Record Ace!!

the bike is beautiful, steel is such a comfortable ride, the campy veloce shifts like butter--the seat? should have put on a real brooks seat-- the Bi17 or a cambium--the tires, I put on 25mm vittoria's and it improved the speed of the bike immensely while not affect the "ride"
