Don't stretch out at all, especially a new cyclist who's over the age of 20. Take a look at high end straight handlebar bikes, eg; Specialized Sirrus Elite Carbon, where the geometry, specifically stack & reach will be more comfortable but still enable serious training and speed.
For £150...good luck with that!!

At £150 all the more reason to get a hybrid, used or otherwise, rather than pay inflated prices for a so called 'racing bike'.
But seriously, what are you going to get that's worth riding for £150?

Hybrids can actually cost more, especially in London where there are plenty of cycle commuters.
A second hand Carerra for example would be fine for a turbo. The riding experience isn’t really that important on a turbo bike surely?

This is a good shout

@Milzy - how about these as possibles, since there's nothing on the Yorkshire Cycling Sales FB group:

Ladies 16 speed Spesh Dolce, but would possibly fit with a longer seatpost/stem - currently £51: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ladies-bike/184613974729
14 speed? Muddyfox - currently £60: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Muddyfox-Omnium-Womens-Road-Bike/184616738524
Trek 7.5 hybrid 27 speed - currently £120: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/trek-7-5...Speed-Shimano-Carbon-Fiber-Forks/324448588908
Trek is great. Putting drops on and it’s a cheap decent gravel/winter bike.

Good find. Weird it’s an M but 50cm. Wish he would buy, instead of bern like a rabbit in the head lights. He may recover and start running again but it will lead to the vicious circle of injury.
