Organised a trip with friends to do this next weekend.
MTB promptly nicked the next day.
Looking for something, anything that will get me around on the downs. Based in Brighton but happy to collect from London. Would love to hear from anyone who's got a cheap as chips MTB, or any advice.
Got an old Specialized Rockhopper going cheap: https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/376093/#comment16541499
But it needs a fair bit of work so probably not ideal if you've got a day to sort it.
oooooh! It's next weekend, not this, so I don't mind a bit of work. I think size might be an issue - I'm just about 6ft. 15 inches is pretty small right? I'm not familiar with MTB sizes...
I think it would be way too small. The reason it's sitting around collecting dust and not being ridden is because my housemate picked it up on a whim and it's about two sizes too small for him at 5'9". For context, I'm 6'4" and it looks like a child's bike next to me.
Best of luck on your search, though. I'm sure someone on here will have something!
got it! thanks very much for taking the time anyway pal -- I really appreciate it. T
I have this frame but probably also a bit too small... https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/374047/?offset=25#comment16564206
Not mine and not near you but ready to ship and ride by the look?
I still have this and am about to drive to Brighton and could deliver if you wanted it .
Was going to keep it but needs to be ridden
Perfect bike for you
But appreciate may be a bit too spendy..
Let me know as will past By Horsham on the way and that is where it is .
You guys are awesome! Thanks so much for all the offers
Jeromeo, that looks lovely, but I don't have that sorta cash atm so will have to pass. Thanks for putting me on to retrobike too! I'm gonna look into the pathfinder
