Sub £700 commuter 56-58cm

Posted on
  • Anyone seen any nice listings for a London commuterish bike? My rather non-bike savvy friend was about to drop £700 on a BLB 3sp and i told him I'd find him something much nicer. Everything else is open, single speed or geared, he's pretty stylish (ideally black) and prefers a slightly more relaxed position/geometry.

    Any thoughts on this genesis I saw, £300 only downside is it's running an atlus derailleur which seems subpar for the pricetag.

  • Interested in a nice vintage stuff or must be a modern type?

  • I've got a 2017 Cube Hyde with 8sp nexus hub, shimano hydraulic disc brakes, 29x2.2 Schwalbe Big Apple tyres, full fenders, think it's a size large but can measure.

  • Pmd ;)

  • Yeah definitely, although anything too fancy might be lost on him

  • No worries. This is not too fancy, can be build as 5/10 speed or ss, drop bars/flat bars/moustache bars etc etc. Have mudguards to go with.­78/#comment15758905

    On another note, if he went for that BLB bike at first, maybe this is not for him 🤔
