Said Adam Snow, Brand Manager;

“We really wanted to mark this momentous milestone for the TI-Raleigh-Creda team, and what better way than to give fans the chance to get their hands on their very own anniversary edition of the winning bicycle!” 


The Special Edition has been recreated using the original features: a Selle Italia Turbo 1980 saddle, iconic red Reynolds 753 frame tubing, Cinelli bars, Mavic Rims, Campagnolo Drive Train, and the new model has been equipped with a larger 10-speed cassette to get up any gradient. 

Continued Adam;

“Just 250 bicycles and framesets will be available, and each will come with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by legendary rider Joop Zoetemelk.” 

In the build-up to the official release, fans of the team will also be able to join an exclusive online event that will include an interview with the man himself, Joop Zoetemelk. 


The show will also feature unboxing of the 40th Anniversary Edition bicycle, and a question and answer session with the team. Added Adam;

“Fans can sign up to the celebratory event in advance, where you’ll receive all the details just a few days before we go live. “

Plus, you’ll get exclusive early access to be among the first to purchase this iconic piece of history.” 

The TI-Raleigh Anniversary Edition bicycle and the Anniversary Frameset will be available for the general public to purchase on the 1st September at 4pm.
