again thankyou all for the advice. I'm a little anxious about buying a second hand bike because I really don't know if I'll end up buying a piece of crap (though I guess you all think the bikes I was looking at were pieces of crap anyway)... its just, I'm not this hardcore cyclist (obviously!), I find it hard to understand what can really go wrong with a bike besides it getting a puncture, its chain breaking, or its breaks failing...

I understand and appreciate your concerns about my potential death, and you are correct, I've done no cycle touring at all. But I have travelled a lot (in ok areas, and areas with extensive warnings) and am used to not speaking the language, and all of that.

I'm gunna go to some more bike shops today and have located a bicycle recycle centre. Thanks again, your help is really, really, uh, helpful.
