New to the Road

I have been riding off road for a few years. I recently got a job close to home(5 miles), and was hoping to get a road bike. I would be willing to build it, but my budget is under $500. Anyway any advice is welcome. I am hoping you will link to bikes for sale. Is anybody selling something? Also I am 5'9" 160lbs 30 inseam. Thanks.

Hey Shawn,

Welcome to Bike Forums.

Craigslist might be good for you.

I got this one for $600 a few weeks ago. It only had 25 miles on it.

If you just want a bike for commuting check out this out (~$500 new). We sold a bunch of them when I worked at the bike shop.
