I am very new to all of this, and have been reading around, and like most people I what I would like is 10 times what I can afford!
To this end my budget is £140 - £160.00
In truth the bike will spend very little time off road, despite living only 2 minutes from the look out in Bracknell!
So I have been looking and these are the short list that I have come up with (unless you can come up with others of course)
Giant Rock SE Bike (2005) http://www.winstanleysbikes.co.uk/pr...k_SE_Bike_2005
Raleigh Freeride LX Bike (2006) http://www.winstanleysbikes.co.uk/pr...e_LX_Bike_2006
Schwinn Frontier GSX Bike (2007) http://www.winstanleysbikes.co.uk/pr..._GSX_Bike_2007
I really would welcome your comments on this, the bike will spend most of it's time being ridden the 3 miles to the train station (and back) - and some weekend light off road cycling.
I look forward to your help and comments.
