Just getting into cross and I'm on a super tight budget. I'm 5'9" so I guess I'm looking for something in the 52-54 cm range, depending on the make. I'm in Chicago; local sale would be ideal but UPS certainly delivers here. I guess at this price point what I'm hoping for is a good frame that has been used, but is still in good shape and then I'll replace/upgrade the gruppo as needed.
Apologies if it's not written as clearly as perhaps it should be, but I'm looking for a complete bike. I know. I know. It's short money. But it's how I'm living right now.
