    Welcome to Bike Forums! What kind of riding do you want to do? Commuting, exercise, running errands?

    Stop by the UK regional forum and say hello.

    Try Craigslist - I didnt see anything for Leicester, but for East Midlands this should meet the bill. if you put smooth tyres on it.

    http://eastmids.craigslist.co.uk/bik/1979359316.html

    Also go to bike shops and ask if they have any used bikes with multiple gears and no suspension, which just addds weight and reduces reliability.

    I was at the unversity of Loughborough in the 1960s

    I can recommend re-cycle on Parkstone road ,,, erm hamilton I think (just outside Leicester)if your looking for second hand. I used to work there and he really is a top class bloke . I still go to him even now I'm living in Hull ... that's how much I rate him. (of course the ex-staff discount help's as well)

    He does some brand new as well ... but I've never brought brand new from him so can't comment on his range.

    Go in tell him what you want it for and he will help. he sometime's has some really good bikes in and they are ALWAYS sensibly priced.
