WANTED/BORROW: 60+ cm Road Bike

Post by powerpro369 on Sun Sep 02, 2012 4:08 pm

Here is a huge stretch but I am going to make a go for it anyways. I am a pretty tall dude (6'6") that has a pretty hard time finding things that fit me properly. When I do, they tend to be very costly. This is hard to get past the wife sometimes... Anyways, I have never tried road riding but would like to. Thing is...I don't want to spend a forturne trying out another sport I am unsure of. I would like it mostly for commuting purposes and the occassional exercise option with the hopes that it becomes a thorough enjoyment to expand on.

What am I looking for? It doesn't matter. It could be vintage, modern, nice, ugly, borrowed. The key is to keep it cheap or free. If borrowed, I am looking for a week or two. Borrowing is a stretch, even for me. I don't expect most to be willing to loan a bike out to a complete stranger as I probably would not. I am just looking to find a way into this sport w/o killing the bank account.

I have looked at bikesdirect and other very reasonable online bike stores. My thought is, if there is someone out there in KMCcycling land that can help out then I have to give it a try. I would perfer to purchase a better quality bike later if I like it as opposed to a not so nice on now and then another one later on.

That was a lot of talking just to ask for some help finding/borrowing a bike. Thanks for your consideration....

Brian
