By the way Althea, Someone pointed out some wear on the tyres. Best quality tyres would be around £25, therefore I would knock off £50 to allow for this. :)

I would say this is an excellent deal at £220 already tbh and would be at £270 if the buyer had to buy their own tyres

Hi knowthejo

It is a superb bike of course, however, a 19 1/2" frame is on the small side and therefore it will have a limited appeal. It would suite many ladies or smallish men. I recollect now that years ago I used to ride a 22 1/2" and I realised after I bought the Roberts back in May that it was a bit small for me (I am 5' 7").

I studies your posting for some time and now I understand what you are asking. 'Post' - you remain transport it. I would have to explore that. Where are you located?

That's a very low price for a lovely bicycle - too small for me: would be a low price if it were double the asking price.

Looks to me like it would suit someone about 5' 4'' or slightly above.
