Gumtree came up trumps a couple of weeks ago, I've been on the look out for bike and a house just around the corner from ours was selling a 1980's sprick bicycle. I took it for a test drive up the street and it was meant to be, my feet could just touch the ground. Although the gears were tricky and the brakes not up to scratch I took a punt and cycled it home for less than the asking price so I was chuffed. My bike (in the words od Syd Barrett) "It's got a basket, a bell that rings and things to make it look good"..... It's spent the last twenty odd years in a shed so I took it to a bike shop and they worked some magic on it, 3 working gears, fixed brakes and a new tyre, now it rides like a dream! My only gripe the plastic seat, which nearly broke my bum!
