    Looking for a 56cm

    Hey guys,

    I tried cx for the first time last fall and fell in love. Unfortunately I was riding a borrowed rig and now its time to get my own. I'm only looking to spend ~$500, do you have any suggestions... or maybe you or a friend are looking to unload one?

    Thanks

    Are you talking about a frame or complete bike? Easy enough to find a decent frame for $500. It's not too easy to find a complete bike though. Maybe Bikes Direct has something close.

    1984 Specialized Stumpjumper, 1986 Specialized Stumpjumper and just way too many projects to list.

    try the nashbar frame.... or the performance frame. Some people have had interesting things to say about them.

    Bikes Direct has a couple of CC bikes if you trust doing business with them. I almost bought a Motobecane Fantom from them but never could get them to email me back to answer a "pre sale" technical question. They have a couple that are less than the one I was looking at. Good luck!
