Hi, just saw this for sale at Evans and I'm very tempted:

http://www.evanscycles.com/products/kona/bike-2011-hybrid-bike-ec026499

Not sure about the gearing but otherwise looks good.

I've been searching long and hard for a new frame that is a larger size but not really come across much - much of the ebay stuff is collection only and then of course there's the anxiety of its condition. Gonna sell my current bike and have this I think, which is actually a steel frame and is heavy!

However, what's the big deal with a steel frame? It's heavier, which in a sense makes it safer. I know steel is supposed to be a 'softer ride' because it's not as stiff as alu. Otherwise, there's not much to get excited about IMO.
