    I don't have much dough, but should I drop some on this:

    "This is a like new 2006 Motobecane Messenger"





    I ride a 56" lemond roadie and a way to small for me conversion and this is a 58" so it's not that far off from being my size...

    I've e-mailed with the owner and I've got him down to $250...

    You could get the same bike, justone that is your fit for 380 if you wanted.

    Yeah $250 is still pretty expensive for a bike that is too big for you. I dont know about the bb height on the motobecane but take that into consideration, it might make a 58 come up even larger.

    I wouldn't pay more than $200. I got a full 8 speed road bike in practically new condition for $200, I wouldn't want to pay more for a fixie of similar quality.

    Not necessarily. Everyone says I'm a 54 but I ride a 58 fixed gear and a 50 road bike. Since he's buying then maybe he should hold out for his size...but I'm sure it'll work fine.

    The gf has been taking over my masi and wanting her own singlespeed w/ a flip-flop so I've been thinking of getting her a windsor. Has anyone else noticed that they have been AWOL the past few months, other than the occasional random frame on ebay?
