    Hi everyone, I came across this site while researching on a single speed bike to buy. I'm a student currently in University.I need a bike to get around as a car is way to expensive. It's a good way to save money and keep fit! I've been looking on gumtree, big retail bike shops and ebay. I've found a few but have no idea if they are worth the money. I have no clue what's classed as a good or bad bike as i only used to ride mountain bikes when i was younger. I'm afraid i'm a total noob and have no idea how to build a bike myself so that is out of the question! I've seen a bike like this, and really like this style / colours. With the black frame and red wheels. I also want to keep the handle bars like how it is shown in that picture as that's what i've been used to in the past....


    I am on a slight budget as being a broke student - £180 MAX (Including delivery) - I live in London atm so i can pick it up anywhere from London if you guys know any good places.
    So basically i'm hoping you can point me in the right direction of what's good and what's not. Not really sure what else to include apart from i really want a bike by the end of this week! Thank you in advance for any replies. [​IMG] Basic Information: Gender: Male Height: 165 cm Age: 20
