I've been spending every extra minute scouring Craigslist in San Diego, LA, OC, and Ebay trying to find a bike to commute to and from work with. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find anything that'll do the trick in my price range. I'm a USC student and am working full time in Orange County so the bike will be used year round and needs to be as reliable as possible. I take great care of my bikes; I just sold my fixie because it was too difficult to deal with the gear ratio and hills. I have $300 cash (I know it's not much but maybe a good samaritan could help me out and point me in the direction of a deal??). Does anyone know of a friend who wants to help a fellow Southern California bike lover out? I might be able to muster up a little more cash if required...
Thanks in advance,
