Hello -

I have about a $300 budget for a used road bike - doesn't have to be fancy, just functional. I'd also consider a touring bike, and or, cyclocross bike.

I'm 5'9" tall so I could ride a 52-54cm frame depending on how it is measured.

This would be just used for casual road rides and some charity rides. Would prefer steel if at all possible.

I'm in Connecticut - greater Hartford area- but can drive a bit for the right bike.

I'd also consider something that might need a few things if the frame and fork etc. were of really good value.

Also I could do a cash and mtb parts trade scenario if anyone is looking for SRAM shifters, rear derailleurs, shimano bottom brackets, that sorta stuff.

Thanks in advance!

Mark
