For a man that spent all his money on his tri bike which is too nice to ride around town: looking for a cheap bike to ride to the bars, work, etc. Nothing special needed, looking for something I can get cheap, that runs well.. That old spray painted bike hanging in your garage for example. Needs to be big enough for someone 6'3 though were not talking a professional fit.
my running around town bike is a fixed gear steel frame I found on amazon for $200. hard to beat that for a complete bike.
Try Velocity in Del Ray, Alexandria - a bike co-op that sells second hand bikes that they fix up -
