Bearing in mind I'm moving and shouldn't be considering anything else, but it's my size and I've just discovered today I have a car port with storage space at my new place :shock: :shock: and I need a commuter hack bike for...doing stuff.... :D

Buy it now. Lovely how old is it then? Luckily too small for me or it'd be gone.

I think British Eagle is a reasonable brand, I would say it is a rung below Dawes, CB, Et al but still well above your run of the mill BSO :wink:
