Hi

I am 17 looking to get in to road biking, but I only have a 10 year old bike that is not that good, so just wondering if anyone was a cheap road bike for sale or even for FREE LOL. I live in hampshire, portsmouth area  1

Thanks but it doesnt look like the bike I am after, it looks abit old, so sorry and I am not really willing to spend £220 on a second hand bike like that, but do you now of any good road bikes that I could get for around £300

New bikes at 300 aren't really recomended generally. I'd look on ebay wehre you can find something like this Tifosi which would suit if its the right size and you're close (I'm nothing to do with the seller)

How bad is the old bike? worth repairing or upgrading parts?

Its not about the bike...well not all of it :O)

Get the frame spread to 130mm £30.

Running gear and wheel service? might be cheaper than a new bike while you save up and train.

I would only go for £500 Spesh or Trek entry level bikes or even 2nd hand frame to build on.

it might be "old" but it is good quality with decent components and very light. Whatever bike you choose to buy make sure its comfortable, lots of people buy bad quality new bikes only to see them gathering dust in garages. You have to enjoy riding the bike, so my advice will be to try out any bikes you fancy. I do have a "newer" Orbea which i will consider selling. Its aluminium and have decent parts but the seatpost and saddle is missing coz it got nicked! If you want to see that i can get some pix.

That 531 looks pretty good and will give a nice ride from 531 tubing.

I might actually be interested in this bike if you could bring the price down a bit?
