Trying to get information about a Raleigh Elkhorn mountain bike made in the 1980's and not having any luck. With all the readers that are here, maybe someone can direct me to an article or a web page? I think it was an early model of mountain bike.

MISC:   cannondale f700 "olympic '96" posted by: Elvis on 5/19/2003 at 1:57:48 AM
Hi all. I got this nearly a year ago but took it out today to take apart, clean, and put back together.... problem: I never owned a cannondale before. Love the patriotic paint job, and the bike is great for winter commute to university. But I took it apart and need some chain info.
The chainring is marked "For Shimano size 16 chain only." is this a standard size mountain bike chain? what does the size 16 mean? [i no longer have the old chain, used it for a fixed gear bike...]. Can I just pop the chain off my 96 TRek 820 and use that?
Second question: any idea what i should ask value wise if I decide to sell it? A friend of mine has expressed interest.
Any info appreciated, thanks.

MISC:   Info on Decathlon Mt. Bike posted by: Elvis on 5/5/2003 at 1:16:47 AM

Just picked up this bike. It's a small orange framed Mt. bike. I've never heard of the make before; it's marked "Decathlon B24 rockrider. Anyone know if this was a foreign company? One spoke is out on the r. wheel and it's got sturdy looking older rims I wonder if I have to use foreign spec spokes... Any info appreciated. Thanks!

CAN YOU SEND ME INFO ON MOUNTIAN BIKES LIKE ON ITS
HISTORY

           RE:  Info on Decathlon Mt. Bike posted by Elvis on 6/1/2003 at 4:32:47 AM
Actually, I found this one in the Trash in the town where i live in NJ, USA. The rear wheel was shot so I replaced it. Never seen one like this before so I don't know the history of the company or much else, for that matter, save that it had some French components so it seems a foreign make.

           RE:RE:  Info on Decathlon Mt. Bike posted by Jacques on 6/10/2003 at 7:13:36 AM
Hello, Yes Decathlon is a French make. Its a Big Sportswear brand with alot of Shops around France. Its nothing special. Like a Huffy in the USA

Best regards from switzerland

           RE:RE:RE:  Info on Decathlon Mt. Bike posted by Elvis on 7/30/2003 at 1:54:35 AM
Thanks. I figured it wasn't something to sell and retire on the proceeds, but it seemed decently made and the components were pretty good, so i had to ask.

hi, don't really need to buy one, just wondering if you had any info on the alpine series. I've been riding my dad's lately for kicks, does the center of gravity seem really high or odd to you?
