    Check out departmentofgoods.com and citygrounds.com

    Really great deal at Nashbar for a Fuji League- fantastic parts and frame and gorgeous. Way better than any bike I've found at this price.
    The only downside of this bike is no provision to run a front brake so you have to get track fork front brake mount, drill the fork (not sure if there is enough reach if you drill- have to check) or put in a new fork.

    Even if you get a new fork (I think Nashbar might even have one for $50), it is still well under your $600.

    i bought a charge plug grinder from realcyclist/departmetof goods for my wife and both of us were very pleased.

    $280 got us tange chromoly, formula hubs, sugino cranks, spoon saddle, tektro brakes, a good looking set of fenders, and clearance for 700x32 tires with fenders

    it is a heavier non butted frame but it rides great and should serve as a reliable commuter for quite some time.

    we looked at bikes direct but i favored the charge for its fenders and tire clearance while my wife favored the ascetics:



    what type of riding do you plan on doing?
