Mmmmm....Get Me a Towel

Check out hippy’s nice score - a TI Raleigh

Nice bike indeed.

But why call it TI when it’s made of steel? I’m assuming that “TI” here doesn’t refer to what it’s made of?


TI was a company called Tube Investments who merged with Raleigh in the early 60s to form TI Raleigh.

TI or Tubing International was the parent company which owned Raleigh and a few other marques, Reynolds Tubing, Brooks saddles and Sturmey-Archer.

ed: or tube investments, I’ve just confused myself…
