I'm going to call upon the generosity and kindness of fellow Retrobikers here
I have a friend (well, it's her 14 year old son actually) who is looking to buy a bike. They're not what you'd call well off, as she's a lone parent.
Anyway, long story short - he sent me a message on Facebook last night, asking for my advice on a bike which he'd seen for sale on Gumtree. I didn't have the heart to tell him that it wasn't even worth the £45 asking price that the seller had put on it. It was a BSO, and a very poor condition one at that.
This got me wondering whether we might be able to help him out a little bit. He's got a budget of £75 maximum and I've said that I'd see what I could do.
He's not into mountain biking as such - he just wants a mountain bike which will get him from A to B and I was thinking that perhaps between us we could come up with something.
I'm open to suggestions
