I saw this locally.....dont know much about the make, according to some reviews ect I've read so far, it gets a good write up, the seller wants £550

Cannondale R2000 SI CAAD5 Saeco road bike. Red, 2002 model , 52cm frame (suit 5’ 4” – 5’8” rider). Carbon forks, Campagnolo Proton wheels. Ultegra components. Cateye computer. Carnac shoes size 9. Turbo trainer. Just serviced. New tyres, tubes, cables, brake blocks. Excellent condition.

Edit....I've a feeling it'll be to small, my current bike's a 26", this is a 20, I'm 5" 11

well I'm 5'11" and personally I think a 52cm frame would be a bit on the small side for me, but you could always go and see the bike and try it on for size? Sizing can vary a bit between manufacturers/frames etc.
I'm not a "roadie" so still work in inches as well :lol: your MTB is probably a 18-20" frame or something like that I would imagine.
