I've been given the task of mechanic'ing the bike my partner and I are going to build up over the next month for a rider who is 5'6" with a 31.5" inside leg. The brief is for a training / recreational bike, built up as light as possible (with flat bars, 27 speed, dual pull brakes - like a modern sports hybrid but with a more classic feel) and we have a budget of £500-600 for complete build.

Rider will be female (but frame doesn't have to be) and I'm looking for a nice, light frame & fork to get ball rolling. Condition must be structurally at least 8 out of 10 (though paint can be worse as we may powdercoat it) with seat tube of approx 50cm c-c, it also must have bosses for mudguards and rear rack and be able to take modern 130mm rear 9 speed hub.

WHY? Please supply as much info as you can and weight if possible!

Cheers, Alex

Don't know if this will be any good to you. Top tube may be a little on the long side.
