    Yeah, that's what I think I really want, but can't find one for the price I want to pay.

    I'm hoping to find a used one that someone kept garaged...

    How much are you wanting to spend? At the lower price end you have Ibex, Middle is Sette and at the higher end is everyone else. If you got 1000 to 1500 the Sette Ace and Flite are awesome bikes, and tough to beat spec wise for there price. Ibex is having a giant sale and it looks like most of there bikes are pretty much out of stock unless you ride a smaller frame.

    Bob's bicycles online. Pick up a frame for about $500. You can build a nice ride for about $1500 if you shop for the parts. LX shifters, FD, RD & Cranks for $225. Nice wheels from BWW for $250. BB7 & SD levers for $100. Tora/Recon air $250. That leaves you $150 for cockpit & tires (go cheap & upgrade later).
