    I'd only suggest buying a bike 'sight-unseen' if it is a known brand-name, and you know enough about components and sizing to evaluate it for yourself.

    Also only if you are capable and willing to do basic repairs and 'tune-up' yourself.

    Perhaps contact local clubs to find a used bike that you can actually see, and discuss with the current owner.

    Used bikes can run the gamut from terrible to wonderful - buyer beware....

    I bought a Specialized Allez as my first bike.

    Entry level and ticks all the boxes I needed ticking. £250 should get you one.
