how tall are you, and how much are you looking to spend?

Our Community Bikes is the only shop that will fit your budget. Otherwise craigslist is the only place that you can probably find a bike for that cheap. Just look for around a 54 or 56cm frame and you should be good.

Just Ride.

Vancouvers over priced hipster cast offs will tax even that budget.

Sports Junkies on Broadway?

This trip to Kelowna was definately an undertaking - Liam and I had been planning this project for 24 hours. We worked really hard to pull out all the stops in this video. We had slo-mo goggle shots; time lapses; pedal flips; outrageous product shots; unloading and loading the bike; walking through the field with your hand in wheat. At the end of the day this trip was all about just getting out and riding with all my friends.

totally. you'll end up paying that for a steel wheel'd shopping cart. unless that's what you're shooting for, or you find an honest deal, i'd up your budget

second the OCB suggestion , but i'd agree you need to up your budget .

they have some good solid road bikes for around 3 hun .

or be real patient , cover a lot of ground and see what you can find .

thing about that approach though is you have to know what you are looking for and you have to know what you are looking at so that when a deal presents itself you can jump on it .

first step in the process is to determine what you want the bike to do .
