Help finding a bike in S. Florida
Hopefully I wont get flamed for this, here goes.
I've been searching for weeks/months trying to find a good used roadbike in South Florida or surrounding areas. I've tried the bargain trader, craigslist, ebay... There are plenty of used bikes, but at 6'5", I am looking for an XL or a 62-65cm frame and they just arent arount to be had. I thought I had found the perfect bike on craigslist in MA, but the seller is not interested in shipping
... I previously owned a Cannondale R600, but you could say that this will be my first true venture into road riding/racing. I know there are several new bikes to be had with decent components (tiagra) for under $800, but I would prefer to pick up a higher quality used bike with some miles and some personality. I do not want vintage though, something within the past 5-8 years would sure be nice.
This is not meant to be a WTB thread as I know there is a forum for such. I just was hoping that some of my fellow Floridians could point me in the right direction. If not, thanks for reading this far and I look forward to meeting you guys/gals on the road, if I ever find a bike
p.s. If you have a bike for sale or know of one that may fit, please feel free to post.
