i want to get a cheap cheap cheap "road" bike off buysell or something to just get exercise on in the spring. since i live near farmlands i wanted to just pedal around the backroads and stuff. that means i don't need a tour de france perfect bike, and i really don't want something that is an "investment".

basically a cheap used commuter.

whats good to look for in terms of sizing etc?
i'm 6'1

Sounds kind of cool actually. Is there a lot of other vintage road stuff for sale at Caps?

Haha, I talked to Bill, he say's there's so many of them in the warehouse. I thought we only had like, those 2 left! I want one!

Vintage I tell ya.

And they come with the rear wheel powered generator and lights! So the lights are on when you pedal, until you stop moving. Nifty little feature :P
