    Well you dont get much for £100 new, so you need to be looking for a second hand one. Look in the local paper, newsagent window and try gumtree. This seems good, gumtree belfast ref: 23910714. Yes its a mens bike but as its only an 18" frame and I guess most of your time will be on road this will be fine for you.

    Or ref: 23733236. Not sure of size you would have to phone to check.

    dont go to toys r us i got a bike of them and tried to return it and now im having to go to the small claims court now to get my money back

    How about this

    It's a mens 16" which should be o.k.

    Free delivery to Uk & Ireland, and if it's not suitable you only need to return it to Ballyclare, where they're based.
