My wife's bike got nicked recently so looking for something new to her.

She used it as a pub bike and short trip bike that she didn't worry about getting stolen when locked up at pubs and train stations. Well, it was stolen. 7 years lucky I guess.

Looking for something early 90s rigid frame that mechanically works well enough but not pretty enough to immediately catch the eye.

Got anything like that in your shed that's collecting dust? An old Kona, specialized or Marin that's seen better days?

She's 5'9" tall so something like a 17" frame? Sorry, I don't have a great knowledge of mtb sizing....

Send me what you have that's under £75. Bonus if it's already fitted with non-knobby tyres! Thank you!

I'm local to London so anything in or close to this part of the world would be helpful.

I have a Marin Indian Fire Train and a Marin Nail Trail but they are Aluminium. The only other frames I have are two Kona Explosifs, 97 and 96, 1993 Orange Elite and a complete 1993 Orange Prestige. I have a Trek 7000 or something but it's dayglo green. And I have a Proflex 454.

Actually, my wifes work bike may be up for sale as a complete unit, Raleigh MTrax 1000s: ... ;start=450
