Looking for something for the Mrs. Mid 90s ideally with fairly traditional geometry (for a small frame).
Thanks

Saw this, if you are anywhere near Farnham:

My partner (5 foot ) has one and it fits well.

Thanks for the link. Looks a good fit. I'll keep an eye on it.

I got a small Bontrager Privateer ´93 I think, which you could get for 90 quid plus postage which would be around 70-80 quid as it's being shipped from Copenhagen, Denmark.

The frame needs repaint but is free of dents and there's´only some small surface rust at the chain stay area. If you were interested, I might be able to dust off a Composite fork 1. generation, but that'll be another level regarding price.

If genuinely interested, I'll drop some photos.

Cheers Jon

Thanks for getting in touch Jon. I think it's going to be out of my price range, particularly with a respray. I'll keep looking, thanks

There's a tidy looking 1991 14.5" Marin Palisades on Facebook local to me for £80 if any good?

I’ve got a 14” Kona Cindercone complete bike, ding in top tube which doesn’t affect structure but does mean it’s a good deal. 1999 model so v brakes.
