My sister currently lives abroad but will be coming to visit me a lot over the next couple of years, using means her British base I guess!

I want to get her (because I am nice!!) a road bike she can keep at mine for when she is staying over!

I have a budget of around £200, are there are any decent new bikes you can get for this? Nothing amazing just something that'll do the job for a weekend ride here and there!

Or is it worth getting a second hand bike? And if so are there anygood guides Tk buying second hand bikes? Buying stuff like that second hand scares mean bit! - a site for sore eyes
