Best place to find a used bike?

I've been looking on ebay, LBS's and a few online sites. I just can't seem to find what I want. I'm looking for a 62cm frame from (preferably, but not required) Trek or Specialized for around $600. I've got the cash and I'm ready to buy, but I just can't find what I want. Please help me before this money burns a hole in my pocket!

It is very hard to find a frame new neverthe less used in that size. I ride a 63 - 64 cm frame and used is out of the question. You may just try looking around roadbikereviews, and other sites to see what is out there.

I say good luck and I mean it, you are going to have a hard time with this one...

BTW if you find a cheep under 200 al or steel frame in 62 cm plus PM me, me wants ss bike and I have been looking forever.

Good Luck

The Ohio City Bike Co-op has rooms full of used bikes/frames from Trek to Cannondale.
Stop by if you are in the neighborhood.
Maybe there is a bike co-op in your area that can help.

If you really want deals on used bikes you have to be kinda flexible. You can find great deals, but maybe not exactly what you thought you wanted--maybe something better!

Pawn shops are my secret source. They have great bikes, but probably not frames.
