Ok....so no laughing!!

I have decided to learn to ride a bike before an upcoming trip to Amsterdam in October. Can anyone recommend a bike and a good deal (no stabilisers)?

ps being 5 10, should I opt for a mens bike?

hi choc
i dont know much about bikes either but this one seems a good price
if anyone else wanted a bike u could use the 3 for 2 offer at jjb i just bought my kids a bike each for xmas on offer
oops just read reviews and they are poor :(
go halford and speak to one to one of the assistences and they will help they migh even give you some stabalisers lol
dont think you'd need a mens.. you'll prob need a 20" frame though.. although, its always best to test out before ordering.
another thing with mens is the saddles are not built for the ladies behind... you get a much comfier / wider seat on ladies bikes.
i always recommend Giant as a make - they last forever, are built with the best parts.
i think the cheapest ones are the Rock and the Boulder
Go for a hard-tail and fixed front forks from a reputable manufacturer such as Giant, Trek, Ridgeback, GT etc.
You need to pay at least £250 and should be able to get one within this budget from an on-line retailer. Try Chain Reaction Cycles, Evans Cycles, Wiggle & Merlin. They all have good bikes in their sales and they have on-line sizing guides. I would guess at approximately 20" (51 cm) for your height.
This is a good offer at Chain Reaction:-
A choice of two colours in your size and a saving of 57%.
Thanks for the replies everyone, will pop down to Halfords and my local specialist shop(Mud Dock) and try out a few. Not sure about spending £250+ on somethinmg I may never use lol but once more into the breach X)
