Try looking at pawn shops too.People who give bikes to thrift stores don't think what they have is worth much(which it may,or may not be) cause its old.You can find some nice bikes at pawn shops because someone needs money badly or they think that they sould get something out of it.People who run pawn shops only think mountainbikes are worth selling and may sell roadbikes(10 speeds to them no matter how many speeds it has) DIRT cheap.Ya never know.Look for a 3 piece crank and shifters at least on the downtubes,barend or STI a real plus.NO shifters by the stem.And stay away from bikes with extension (safety) levers.Good luck on finding your dream bike!
