Raleigh Edge Trials Bike...sort of

We were working on this bike earlier in the week at the store.  It's a 1988 or 1989 Raleigh Edge.  It has a 26" front wheel and a 24" rear wheel.  I remember selling them when they were new at TC.  They were meant to mimic trials bikes from the era, but it was really much more of a mountain bike with odd sized wheels.  It did accelerate well, but I never took it off road.

This example was in exceptional shape, still sporting the original tires...which were dry rotted and we replaced them.  Neat blast from the past.

Thanks!
