Re: Commuter bike - small

I am still waiting to hear from bagpussctc re his bike which I think would suit very well. Am rather concerned as he appears not have been on the forum since 25 Jan and hasn't responded to any of my recent PMs.

Failing that, I'm still looking for a decent used bike if anyone can help.

Re: Commuter bike - small

@bagpussctc Apologies for the delay in replying - I've only just seen your post. Don't know much about that particular vintage of this model but will do some research - would it be suitable for a reasonably brisk commute or is it more a 'steady as she goes' type? Btw, what tyres (700c wheels?) are c...
