    It might be worth a small wait until you are able to buy a new bike. IMO it'll be a bit of a problem to find a used frame that will fit you . Check out some of the SURLY bikes, I'd think you are...

    IMO 20 to thirty minutes , 4 times a week at least for a minimum work out. The intensity usually takes care of itself if your attitude is to enjoy the ride.

    Give up what ? Bike riding ? Of course not. The weight of anger ? Definitely. I have on occasion something like this happen, it's not worth it to carry it for long.

    Comfortable quality sandals, wool socks, with platform pedals with studs. Rain or shine at a temps just above freezing on occasion. I like the flexibility , and they dry out quickly after a rain.

    Lowes, and Harbor Freight both sell a pulley device that allows you to hang a bike off the ceiling of your garage, they work well. I'm sure your LBS can get one for you, but you'll pay more.
