Hi, i know absolutely nothing about road bikes but i am thinking it is time i tried one as i ride one of my mountain bikes on the road a lot and im sure a road bike would be more efficient. I have no idea what size i need but i am 6ft 2" and ride a 19-21" mountain bike. I am watching a few cheap ones on Ebay but would prefer one from here, i dont mind if it needs work i like a project. Thanks for any help.

I have one of these going in your size.

Image

2003 BH Oquina, Aluminium frame with Carbon fork.

Good points - Frame and forks in good nick, cranks are ok. cheap !

Bad points - Back wheel really out of line, might need replacing. Front mech needs replacing as spring has gone I think. Rear mech might be ok but needs looking at. Will need new cables for sure I think. Stem needs replacing as is too long and has too much rise. Computer is broken.

Let me know if you're interested and I'll do some pictures.
