I don't know what wrenching is, and i can manage with classic steel bikes, but I'm aiming at something aluminum.
Wrenching is being able to fix your own bicycles...aluminium is nice, but with a modest budget, and wanting it to last forever, a classic steel bike might be good. I have to say, I don't see much on CL at the moment though.
Take a look at the stickies in the Road Cycling forum for an idea of what's out there for the modern stuff...
TRY EMPATHY & HAVE LOVE IN YOUR HEART, PERHAPS I'LL SEE YOU ON THE ROAD...
