Ello ello -
I am looking to buy a bike in the London area or within easy train journey's reach. Around the 53-54cm mark would be ideal.
Something practical to stick a pair of Marathon Plus tyres on and chug around town on regularly. I don't mind if it has gears or not, but I want brakes!
Don't want drop handlebars.
I'm open to either something reasonably nice or something beaterish.
The cheaper the better but I don't want rubbish and if it's the right fit then I'm up for dropping a little wedge.
It seems to be an absolute minefield of turdage buying bikes these days online. 4 or 5 years back it used to feel like a walk in the park!
Perhaps I've lost my magic touch.
Let me know if you've anything which might fit the bill!
