I have been talked to find a bike for a friend. Budget of £200, nice condition a bonus. Ideally a hard tail running v brakes. The idea is to be better than a new bike on the cycle scheme costing £400.

Any brand considerd 19/20" frame needed. Also require postage or pickup/ delivery in London.

What's out there?

Afraid so, £ 200 is his buy outright second hand budget, he has just moved flat and a little skint at the mo... I know the feeling. I'd like to find hima nice framed bike that he can potentially upgrade later. Xt would be nice but a little out of his knowledge field at the mo. I was sort of thinking a low- mid kona *cone would be nice but I'm strictly basin that on what I would look for on the budget.

Basically if any one has anything let's have a look and I'll make him choose one!
