Commuter bike - small

Postby largeruk » 8 Jan 2020, 5:22pm

I'm looking for a commuter (c10 miles each way) bike. I'm 5'7" tall, inside leg 29" so something small-framed. Flat bars, mudguards, puncture-resistant tyres, lights, decent condition, relatively lightweight etc would all be great!

Located in SW London (work in central London) but happy to be flexible for the right bike.

Budget ideally <£200. Not really sure what one can get for that kind of money but any thoughts, suggestions or offers very gratefully received!

I have this available .
Dawes Kara Kum touring bike .
19 inch frame.
Shimano Deore comopnents etc .
2000 model?.I bought it end of last year with a view to transfering all the parts onto a frame of my size , I have gone another route.
Previous ladly owner had hardly ridden it .
£200 . Present version is around the £600 mark . I think the early model is a lot better spec.
I am in Derby.

@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 currently fitted? Some more details re components/specs, condition, and a few close up pics would be great if that's not too much hassle.
