    Little OT: City Bike for my GF?

    Been looking for a bike for my girlfriend for a while now and have been having a surprisingly hard time finding something. We looked at Electras (Townie and Amsterdam). They're nice bikes, but you're paying a premium for style. The bigger issue with those was that they were too tall for her (she's about 5'). I've been hoping to find a nice cruiser or comfort fixer-upper on Craigslist, but haven't had much luck and sellers have been flaky. I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a place to find something (preferably a fixer-upper). We've gone to a few LBSs downtown, and the Goodwill. We're really just looking for something that would fit a 5' woman with 3+ gears (internal hub would be awesome). Thanks.

    I covet the Schwinn Coffee and Cream.
    Take the long cut, we'll get there eventually.

    194 (or similar- I hate seeing old cromoly bikes getting tossed)
    + fenders, maybe flat bars + drivetrain parts laying around...
