Looking for 54cm frame or complete bicycle

Hey y'all,

I'm looking for a bike (or frame) for Andrea. I'm pretty sure a 54 will work very well, but slightly smaller might be an option. She has no intention to be a racer, so I think she'll be very happy with a nice steel frame (since Ti and carbon are probably not within the budget). But, the right aluminum frame is always an option.

So, if anybody has anything, let me know.


p.s. Good luck to everyone at the Elmwood race. I'm sorry I won't be able to make it (rehearsal in Omaha), but you can all come over to Louisville for a beer after...

Here's a thought I was tossing around in the neural pathways today. Would anyone be up for a bike ride next Saturday (8/11) into Omaha to watch a movie, get something to eat, and ride back to Lincoln? This would be roughly a century ride.

It would be real fun if enough people would be up for it. I was thinking that if we leave between 6:30AM and 7:00AM we could get to the AMC theatre to catch a show before noon, at which point the tickets cost 4 dollars. Some of the movie ideas would be Transformers, Harry Potter, Simpsons, Bourne Ultimatum, or anything that everyone can agree on.


If that doesn't sound good, would anyone be up for a Beatrice or Seward ride on Sunday and going to a movie in Lincoln when we get back?

Post a comment if you would be up for it. If enough people are in then game on. If nobody wants to do it, then I will just crawl in a corner and cry. hehe

Happy Friday!!

Sunset after the storm.
