Hi, not had a need to post in this section for some while, except for the pic of the month, but now i have to ask for some help.

Some time before i discovered Retrobike, SWMBO bought a Halfords FS26! I know, I know..bad choice. So, she has decided that it is too heavy, and the rear sus isn't really needed. :oops:

The frame is 20" ( she has long legs!), the fork steerer is 240mm high, and 28mm overall width. The rear wheel spacing is 130mm.

The help i need is A) recomendation of a ridgid i.e non rear sus, frame to transfer all the bits to...

And B) does anyone have one not in use/ for sale/ karma(?) :roll: , preferably in Sussex.


Many many thanks for all answers receved,

Dave

stick a wanted ad up in the appropriate forum and i'm sure you will get a few offers of decent but cheap frames.

It worked for me when I needed one!
