Hi all,

I have entered the Outlaw half in June and despite being an ok runner and having a hybrid to cycle to work I am clueless! I really need some advice on buying a racing bike...has anyone managed to get a good deal in the sales? I am 5'9 with 34" inside leg...have been told a 53 inch frame is ok? Is this right? I am hoping to spend around £500ish...

Think I might have bitten off a bit more than I can chew here but I'm ready for a new challenge!

I think 53 inches may be a little large for you.....

Amy I would go to a reputable bike shop and try a few for size

Its an expensive mistake to get the wrong one

Meldy speaks sense. Fit is all important and it's not just saddle height - its reach and bar width too.
