/ 2nd hand road bike
Based in Sheffield
Want to give road biking a go. Where should I look to find a cheap bike? I'm 6 ft 2, long back and not very flexible. Looked at new seems like 500 quid is entry price point.
Otherwise usual recommendations are Ebay and Gumtree (with care!).
Work out what frame size you'll need, as they do vary a bit (either bike websites or try the bike you're looking at)
I got a Spec Allez 2008 in great nick for £150 and its done me great this last year.
Whatever you buy, give it a good check over - I rejected a 2nd hand Colnago which was otherwise in perfect condition and perfect fit for me when I found a crack in the bottom of the head tube!
