Hi, I'm after a first road bike for a friend's son. He's a fairly tall 11-year-old so a 51-54cm frame would be ideal. It doesn't need to have great kit on it, ideally it needs 700c wheels so we can get hold of new tyres easily, it doesn't need to be in great condition - if it's too smart, someone will probably try and steal it from him! The budget is up to about £80-100.

Any old cheap steel "gas pipe specials" kicking around? Any of those ten-speed Raleighs that everyone had around '88? If you're in or near London, or could post to London, even better. Please get in touch.

Thanks!

Pete

eBay seems pretty short on them at the moment too...

I might have a small Orbea alloy frame and forks kicking around if you are prepared to stick the gears etc on it. £80 plus postage if that was any good. I could send measurements, pictures etc if you were interested.
