This is Jnr's bike, he's a bit bigger than your OH, but I think something like this would do the job...... It has 700c wheels.



Condor are based in London, so might be a good starting point. This one was second hand.

Thanks very much for all the replies guys :)

I hadn't realised how hard it was to get wheels / tyres. This thread stopped me buying a small bike off ebay for £20 because it needed a new wheel at 600*28A

2nd hand is definately preferable due to the high theft risk in central London.

Girlfriend is not too fussed about the type of bike but I'm trying to influence a road bike so we can both go at a pace skinny whees easily give.

Thanks for all the advice - managed to source a bike.

It's a childs 1970s racer from ebay with narrow handlebars & smaller brake levers & 46cm frame. It's been converted to use mountain bike 26" wheels and has panaracer 26x1.25 tyres which I think are equivalent to 32c more or less.

It has paint chips & surface rust which is prefect from locking in London. Otherwise the frame is straight and in good condition.

Got it delivered today & girlfriend is yet to see it - hopefully there will be decent weather this weekned to try it out.





Got something to say?
