First off, I'm not looking to get into road biking seriously. Just recreational and to give me something to do when I can't hunt or go boatin as all the creeks are dried up here in the southeast at the moment. My buddy bought an old school Lotus and I rode that thing for hours the other day and fell in love. I can't spend any more then probably $175 on a bike. Im 5'9" ish, so exactly what size should I look for? Fount this one, http://athensga.craigslist.org/bik/2035759815.html thought maybe I could talk him down to at least $175. I'm just looking for any general advice and info. that could help me out in buying a bike. I want something vintage, yano old just because I don't care for all that fancy stuff on the new bikes. I do want something with gears though, not just a single speed. Like I said, just something fun to do in my spare time. I know you aren't suppose to try and sale a bike on here but if anyone has something that you think would work in my price range, let me know. I live in Rome, GA. It's like an hr from Atlanta and an hr from Chattanooga as well. Thanks!
