Hi Everyone -
I've been biking for years on and off. Most recently living/biking in Chicago where I have a homemade hybrid (someone else built) for the nice weather riding and a mountain bike for winter/hauling.
I'd like to get out of the city more and into loaded touring so I'm currently iso a steel-framed bike I can use for that. With the current state of the economy and all, I'm hoping to find something used. Or a job. Well, both a bike and a job would be the best of all situations.
Oh, the other problem with bike shopping, I'm short. So if anyone has a lead on something that's 48 cm or smaller (down to 42cm) at a reasonable price, I'm likely going to be interested.
