    recommend me a bike

    well, i just did my taxes and i am devoting 500 of it to getting a SS bike so thats my budget line. Here is a list of things i would like:
    bull horn bars w/ TT lever brakes
    Front and Rear brakes
    42 or 44 crank
    freewheel...so i can coast
    very important: road geometry: i want it to be a little more upright as it will be for commuting

    so what do you guys think?

    So you're going for a singlespeed? (not fixed?)

    That's a Cayne Uno. My roomate has last years model, which is pretty much the same but has drop bars. The hubs are unbranded formula's. It's worth the price. The only bad part on it is a cheap stamped cog, but the OP doesn't want to go fixed (yet).
