    desperatley seeking my first SS mtn bike!

    I just sold my lemond road bike, and NEED (like when you need a woman) a SS mountain bike. As cold as it is in NYC i'll be returning to work as a messenger next week after a couple months off the bike.

    i am now both fat and broke, so i need something cheap, and i don't care how ugly it is as long as...

    -it's steel
    -it works, and doesn't need much to pedal away on
    -and it's a single speed or easily convertible (horizontal dropouts)

    i'm not a mechanical guy (one of several reasons i want a single speed), so a complete bike would be good.
    if you've got something, or know somebody who does, let me know ASAP.

    anything from a $50 beater to something cool you'll let go for $300 max including shipping.

    I have a specialized stumpjumer for sale for $300. Not steel and non-horiz dropouts but it works very well as an urban commuter. Rigid with a 44x16 gearing. Surly rear hub . No tensioner used for this gearing but might be needed for other gears. Can be run as a fixie, I've done it. She is ugly enough not to get noticed but nice enough to stand up to abuse. PM me if you want pics and further description.

    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC
