Im looking for something to ride in the winter and Sh**e english weather so i can keep my beautiful Bianchi looking sexy. Ive had a gander on Ebay and there are loads of second hand bikes from the 80's lots of peugots and raleighs - reynolds 501 steel frames and some of them look in ok nick. im looking to spend about £50 and then whip it down to the local bike shop for a service and new tyres etc.... Can anyone tell me what i should be looking out for, anything thats a definite no no. I nearly bought a peugot 103 carbolite for 54 quid on e-bay today but was out bid. Im glad i was now though, cos i looked on another cycling forum and someone else was thinking of getting a carbolite and lots of people said "no dont do it" apparently screw patterns on the components were incompatible with most modern upgrades. Thats the kind of thing im a bit in the dark about. Maybe it would be better saving up to about £150 and buying a very cheap new no-name cycle from argos or somewhere? Oh its a road bike im after by the way not a mountain bike.
