    Classic Bridgestone RB2 Road Bike

    If the above is the bike and you're between 5'8-5'11, it is a great deal @ $200 and looks to be in good shape. I paid more than that for an RB-1 frame and fork.

    It has a triple crank and fenders. The cables look rusty. Offer $200 if you like it and go from there.

    I prefer a 58cm road frame. My Miyata Terra Runner MTB drop is a 20" or 52cm frame, so your Rockhopper would probably work well for you.
