    hey ccaddy,

    Maybe pop in to Reynold's Cycle if you haven't already? They always seem to have a couple decent used road bikes for sale. There was a nice Opus there about a year ago or so at the Meg Drive store for like $1000, had a 105/ultegra mix if I remember correctly. Sparked my interest at the time but was a bit big for me.

    Also, the TO bike show's this weekend. If you know what size/rough geometry you need there are killer deals there sometimes.

    Might be worth checking out.

    There are no road bikes on Pinkbike and my budget is "find a steal" so $1000 bikes are out of the question .
    A few nibbles on Canadian Cyclist though .

    From new, it'll be tough to find anything really good for much less that $1K all-in. Used though, you might even make your way up to Ultegra!
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    Other option would be a cross bike. If you call around you can find them for under $1000. Maybe even cheaper as shops will be wanting to get rid of old stock. Cycle Solutions had some Norco Cross frames for under $200. Gone now.

    Haha, i'm sure there are other places to find a "steal" ... pinkbike for one!

    I'm not that excited to buy used, the time you've invested searching for the winning combo you could have saved enough to buy new. People always over-value their own trash too.

    So, good luck... you have the right sites.

    Which size and conditions btw?

    You might consider running a wanted ad in a local paper or posted on a work bulletin board.

    Maybe check with your local forums or even the mountain bike club you're supposed to be involved in

    I picked up a basically new Devinci Chicane with a couple upgrades for $500 through word of mouth. I still have it too, and it's your size. But you'll never find out about it I guess....

    Sorry to have ticked you off Craig. While I may have been trying to make a point, facetious banter is all that was really intended. Sorry.

    got a 56 Jake the Snake (2007, neon green, 105 parts) that I could make happen <1000 if you or anyone else is interested. Have different parts to fit on it to fit different pricepoints.

    Have you been FB stalking me on Mrs. Monster's account? I hope she knows about this.

    Currently set up as RHD fixie-commuter, but the LHD switch only takes about 5 mins.
