    Buying a bike

What to buy:
    * "hybrid bike" works best
    * you'll have to go there and get it
    * reserve 20 quid to adjust random stuff

Where to buy:
    * 100% just get in on Gumtree for like 60 quid
    * look for something good that "needs a bit of repair" as nobody will touch it, and you won't actually need to repair it
    * shops are a waste of time
    * ReCycle was good (when I got a nice Trek there for 90 pounds in 2014)!!!

    * "Typical "medium" sizes are 54 or 56 cm (approximately 21.2 or 22 inches) for a European men's racing bicycle or 46 cm (about 18.5 inches) for a men's mountain bicycle"
    * so for mountain bikes: for 6 feet (182cm) = 21" bike, for 5'8" (172 cm) = 18" bike
