As far as I recall Ridgeback were workmanlike at best.

Cheers for that. Any recommendations for a reasonable old steel frame to look out for? Nothing exotic, as its meant to be a cheap build. Thanks.

By workmanlike I don't mean bad by any means.....

If you want something for the missus you'd not go wrong with mid range offerings (in steel or alu) from any of the big manufacturers. Unless retro is a prequisite I'd be looking at something a little newer as well.

Cheers - probably a tad big - sh'e 5'9" , 34" inside leg? I'm definately after a steel frame, and have got the wheels already (2nd hand SS).
