Before reading through this table I should point out that the Ravens are very versatile and can be set up in a number of ways. This table is only designed to give a pointer in the right direction, final setup is all-important.



Rankings are:

7 = Highly Specialist (therefore not an all-rounder)
6 = Somewhat Specialist
5 = Highly Suitable
4 = Good Suitability
3 = Average Suitability
2 = Usable
1 = Not designed for environment

All the Ravens are a high quality bikes. I designed this table to differentiate between the Raven models, not to rank a Raven against any other bikes. I have tried to use the Raven Tour as the base line - a good all rounder.

Max Luggage: Please note that rider weight and especially road surface should be taken into account in calculating your maximum allowance.

I am open to comments, suggestions and corrections!

Sorry I cant get the table to align properly. Anyone know now to embed a table in the post?

Fred A-M:
Out of interest Stuart, where did you get the 18Kg figure for the RST from?  I'd always thought it was 15kg and so would be happy to learn otherwise!

stutho:
Actually we are both wrong! It's 12kg rear and 5kg front. (17kg)
Thanks for making me check Fred - I will updated the table.

Stuart,
Regarding formatting/displaying a table in a post - I can think of 2 options :-

1. Request/persuade Forum Admin to activate table features of HTML in the Forum Code.
A point to consider is how good is your HTML?

2. Build the table in another application, e.g. word processor/spreadsheet and take a picture of it.
Post the table picture on a publicly accessible photo site and use the
[img] internet address of table picture [/img***] feature to include the table in your post.

Please note the end of image address tag should be /img with square brackets [ ] round it,
i.e. [/img***] is wrong,
I included *** to make it show the tag text in this post, without the *** most of my post turns into a missing image!

This latter [img] technique definitely works in the Members Gallery to show pictures of bikes.
