heck, as already stated around here, i was going with a trek rigid mtbike (took off the shocks) and was slapping on some Origin 8 drop bar ends (hoping, too, they were legal since they are swept back towards the rider like any drop)...but then swtiched to a Schwinn Caliente with Kenda cross tires (that are working quite well after several days of trial and little error)...but am dealing with the weight issue.
going the cheapest route as well...while remembering, this is the beginning and i need to take it easy, observe, push it, have fun. my countdown is down to a week (this time next sunday i'll have a load of info to process)
p.s. i got off topic a bit i think...meant to mention check EvilBay and CL for forks...(as i am doing for aluminum/quick release rims!)...i just boughjt a 2007 or so Giant TCX aluminum fork for $15 (nothing like an auction)...where and when i use it, i don't know. might go on the trek to replace my OTHER rigid fork that i bent a month or more ago...
