Hi there, I've been looking for my dream bike for months now, and I always find myself in the same (very frustrating) situation. My knowledge of bikes and the bike market being pretty limited, I struggle to make the right decision and end up with bikes that don't fit the bill.
I would love to meet someone who can help me with my search, someone knowledgeable and eager to spend a bit of time to advise me on a satisfactory purchase. For London-based charitable souls, I can make up for the time spent in beers, coffees, bike rides and French lessons - vraiment.
I'm looking for a 54cm road bike (or smaller, I'm a 5ft9 female) with the possibility to fit gravel tires. I'd like to be able to go touring with it - I'm planning to go on a 1000+kms bike tour in September. I would also use it to go on my usual weekend bike rides on roads and Regents Park laps.
I would be extremely grateful if someone could help me find it, feel free to send me a message!
