I'm after a bike for the missus. Ideally this would be a mixte type frame with swept back bars and some barcons.

I've got some wheels that i'm in the process of building so a 700c frame would be preferred. She's about 5 foot 5 tall, i have no idea on sizing for women so I'll leave that up to you.

Not to bothered about paint condition as it'll probably get powder coated. Something in 531 would be nice.

What have you got?

I have a Raleigh wisp, complete except for the rear rack.
You can have it for free if you can pick it up from near Stansted airport ;0)
