got my bike nicked from my shed the other week.

Other than gumtree/ebay etc. where's the best place to buy? looking for a commuter sub £500 single speed if possible. Fuck all out there at the moment…

edit: based in London if that helps

Always had a good experience with LFGSS forum as a buyer. Good stuff goes really quick though.

yeah lfgss or shpock. how tall are you blackham? i was offered this cool af gt legacy for £400 on lfgss the other day. mostly new parts so slightly more expensive than you'd hope but would make a great commuter/path cruiser (58cm frame)

Cheers Swede but unfortunately would be too big for me (~54cm).

Thanks for the lfgss recommendation, will give it a look.

have a look at https://www.findthatbike.co.uk/ too. compiles all 2nd hand bike listings in uk. might even find the one you've had nicked! (think that was the original purpose of the website)
