Hi Guys,

Im looking to get my sister a bike for around the £200 mark to get her from the train station to work each day.

Therefore i would like a suggestion if anyone has had experience of any light (carrying onto the train each day!) commuting bikes in that ball park?

Thanks guys

    carrera virtuoso from halfords seems to be reduced to close to the £200 mark every once in a while, mine makes for a very nice commuter indeed!

  • Does she need a folding bike? Some train companies won't let you take a non-folding bike on a train in rush hour... may be worth checking out.

    Have a look at gumtree or ebay for some nice second-hand ones I'd say....
