Good solid bike, weigh not much more than a new Dawes Galaxy in that set up. I converted one to a flat bar 21 speed job for the missus to try out on and it did alright round Norfolk, latterly it was used for getting up to the stables before we sold 'blue bike' on. :cry:

Nice looking saddle but does look like a chunk of the rear mudguard is missing though :lol: 8)

yeah, people will usually haggle a wee bit on price. I'd be happy enough at £75 tbh. Great bike at that price for someone when you think what a decent quality hybrid costs.
