I have happened across a very reduced price Raleigh Flyer, anybody got one or experience of one? Would it be a worthwhile purchase?

Depending on how much it is. Is it new?

I've not had one, but they are decent bikes in the Fixie, S/S market. Deep section rims. The only thing is they are flat bars........Not a fan of them  19

£175 on Raleigh's own site at the moment. Not going to be anything at all special, but if you're going to get a sub-£200 bike, a steel singlespeed seems like a pretty good bet for minimum irritation.

That's a nice looking bike. I've been looking at replacing my old MTB with something for roads that's as cheap as possible, shame it's got flat bars and is SS, wonder what the cost would be to add some gears... (might as well just buy a geared bike I guess).

Couldn't really add gears as its track hubs and horizontal drop outs  3

See, I knew there'd be a good reason.

Saving for a wedding so can't justify any extra expense. If I want to replace my knackered old mtb (it probably classes as a hybrid now, but there were no hybrid's when I bought it) it needs to be at bare minimum cost.

You could get gears for not much more:
