Like Rev Chuck, I wouldn't say no to a free ride if the frame wasn't cracked anywhere. It would be nice to build a single-speed out of. If I were going to go new, it'd be at least $800 so I get something significantly ahead of what I ride right now. What I'm planning to do, though, is wait until I finish college and buy a really nice bike, but I probably won't talk myself into spending much more than $2000. It's a lot of money for me but I've drooled over bikes still more costly. The Intense VPP and the Turner 5-Spot will have to be content to sit in the LBS window.
