I am trying to help a friend by putting together a bike so that she can get off her much too small *Mart bike.
She is 5'10" and has long legs... prefers a step through (possibly a mixte) and she is recently divorced, so no real funds. I don't have much to pitch in.
I am exploring the usual sources (CL, Ebay etc) for old bikes/frames to refurb/upgrade with existing parts and have a couple of possibilities, but was curious about other possibilities others may know about.
I think a 22" or so step through or Mixte frame would work, and would prefer 27" or 700c wheels...
Other than a rare vintage frame, I haven't really seen anything modern that looks big enough in a step through.
If you see anything as you wander the net, please let m know.
Emphasis on cheap and serviceable, probably frame only to keep it as cheap as possible.
