Hey guys - I'm trying to find the best starter ss/fg bike for myself (5'3" female inseam about 29"). I live in Southwestern Virginia where there aren't many options on craigslist and none of the local bike shops have single speed or fixed gear bikes. We do have a local co-op which I visited and they said they would help be build a bike if I could find a frame as they didn't have any in my size.
I'm looking to spend about $300 total and would prefer a used bike/frame that I could then slowly upgrade and learn from the co-op people how to work on it and take care of it. But I also want to ride it ASAP. I've been looking online for a few weeks and need to just go ahead and take the plunge so I can be riding around town.
Is this bike worth to start with on ebay?
