    Frame sizes are measured from the centre of the crank to the top of the seat tube. For the average sized adult you'd probably be looking at either a 19" or a 21" frame. A 26" frame would be impossible to ride unless you were a giraffe!

    Tyre/wheel sizes are usually 26" though.

     

    If you're looking for "cheap" try to hold out for a decent brand as a K-Mart or Big W bike will disappoint in the long run. Walk away if anything is rusty unless it's a small part such as a bolt or nut.

     

    Edit: This one looks like a 19" frame and may be worth a look. I have no connection with the seller - just browsed Gumtree.

    If you live in the west suburbs, there is a guy that sells and mends 2nd hand bikes from his home garage in Fulham Gardens/Kidman Park on Riverway just turn left at Laurie St and its a few houses down the road on the left. Very Cheap !!!!!! his house looks on to liner park, the torrens river cycle/walk track from coast to city
