I'm on the lookout for a women's MTB, either complete or as a project. Nothing high-performance is required, it will be used for comfort on the road and the occasional light track or path. It will need to be:

    Reasonably lightweight (so aluminium, basically)
    Shortish travel front suspension only (I'll replace forks if rigid)
    Reasonable, working modern components gears/brakes - no need for discs (and again, I can replace some parts if required)
    Suitable for about 5' 5" height
    Postable or collectable from the area I live (Hampshire) or drive around fairly regularly (Wiltshire, Somerset, Dorset, poss W. Sussex)

I don't have a particular budget in mind as I'm expecting to have to swap over some parts etc to make up the right bike, but I'm happy to consider anything that meets the criteria, or could be made to meet them with a little work. Cheaper the better, of course!
