Last year my housemate had her bike stolen in London and still hasn't found a replacement.

She is very tiny - 4 ft 11 (although apparently 5ft in some places).

I'm looking for a 13" approx bike (ideally fully built) for between the £100 - 150 mark.

Something like an old cannondale, specialized, orange or kona

She previously had a 13" Specialized Hardrock.

If you only have a frame, I'd be interested as have a load of spare parts knocking around!

Looking for something reliable, not too heavy and pretty safe to ride.

Cheers

Hi Antstark,

I'm not sure it will be small enough, but thanks for the offer

Just in case, is it the 15" frame on this brochure?

Yeah sorry it is a 15". It's a bit older than that though. 1999ish I think.

If only she was a few inches bigger.

Her last bike was a large child's bike 13"!

Thanks anyway
