    Spend your 100 quid on gym membership and hey presto! Your bicycle will magically become much faster!

    But seriously, 7 miles on a BMX is long, just buy any bike with gears then spend the rest on the gym.

    Get a 2nd hander for sure..or look fro the 2006 models..you could well find a barh=gain, but will cost u a quid or two to get a mountain bike mag to find out eth websites..unless you can get an older copy off someone..
