    Any advice?

    I really need help searching for a used bike. This will be the first bike I buy since my childhood department store MTB. I really want a CX but only have about $400 to spend. I need it for commuting/light trails/weekend rides. I'm obsessing over the LeMond Poprad after my latest research, but what is the best for the money at this budget? I think at this point I need someone to give me a jolt of reality to get my head on straight. I'm like a kid in a candy store, salivating but with only a nickel to spend... The problem is, I need a bike sooner than later. I didn't renew my parking pass for school, and classes start in less than 4 weeks! Are there any good places to search other than ebay, craigslist, oodle? I wouldn't say I'm desperate yet, but I'm getting that way!

    (Sorry mods, wasn't sure which forum to put this in)

    You could try seeing if any LBS's deal with consignment or used bikes. Not sure what you'll find in the sub $400 range. Might mean picking up a solid old road bike and spending the remainder on getting it fixed up / replace components. Good luck!
