Hi, I was wondering if you guys could help?

I know absolutely nothing about bikes, but I'm looking for a cheap one. By cheap, I mean as cheap as possible, definitely no more than £100. I need it only to commute to nearby shops and local amenities, occassionaly perhaps to work. No off-road riding at all.

I'm 5ft 4, so need something that I'd be comfortable on.

I've seen these ones, anyone have any views on them:

CBR Java Alloy Dual Suspension 26" 18 Speed Mens Bike

Universal Polaris 26" 15 Speed Gents Mountain Bike
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Universal-Polaris-Speed-Gents-Mountain/dp/B000N6SQZW

British Eagle Trailbreaker Dual Suspension 26" 18 Speed Mens Bike

Any comments on these bikes? Which one should I go for?

Or any other suitable, cheap bikes you've come across? I know there's a 99p deal posted at the moment, but I want something functional out of the box, not something I'm going to have to fix.

Thanks.

Thanks for that - they do seem to have some good prices. However all their bikes are on Buy it Now at the moment, whereas looking at his feedback people have saved a fair bit on his auctions. Hope he has plans to put them on auction again...


Yep, aware of that, but bit too much of a gamble for me. I'd probably keep it in the shed waiting for someone to come and fix it for me!

Thanks for the headsup - after searching lots of places for a bike which met my requirements, price and size, I decided to go for this one from Boots with the £10 voucher. Thanks!
