Hello there : )
I know a girl who's looking for a road bike for budget and she's bout 166-165 cms tall. Well, I don't really want to advise her to buy a new roadie with sh 2200 or sora gruppo and with badly laced noname wheels, so I thought I might "force her" to own one of my old dreams... A nice vintage bike with full tricolor-ultegra group set

this must be better than a road bike she can get for this prize (300 euros cca?) not to mention the cro-moly tubing is more durable than aluminum.
I once had a bike with aelle tubing, that wasn't a very light bike for my taste, but it's much lighter than the low-grade alu frames..
The seller has tons of vintage bikes renovated, trued, greased, in perfectly working condition, I don't know whether 50cm cc meausure would be ideal for her. : )
