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.
