can't beat an old '80s Raleigh as a good beater... perfect for a singlespeed or geared commuter / hack to learn your craft with - good luck!

Ah, the Equipe. Lovely. Welcome to our world.

There's lots of things you can do without skills. Start by getting a few different kinds of brush and sponge, and give it a good clean. That's the biggest part of bike maintenance.

Oh yeah, and ask if you get stuck; we like to help.

Bugger all wrong with the equipe, nice looking bike mine was when I was chipping to school on it.
£20 gets you what these days? Not much of anything.
It'll get you from A-B, you'll be able to fettle & if you really really break it badly, you've still only lost a score...what can go wrong :lol:
