    Decent if you have a groupset in the parts bin or can get one cheap. Or if you're looking to go singlespeed. Otherwise it'll be $500+ to complete it with new parts and then you could have bought the whole bike used anyway.

    80's 24" Cannondale for $100.
    http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/n...896350114.html
    Claims 600 and 105 components. Downtube shifters. Looks like it will need new tires/cabling and chain. 26" wheels? I think not.

    The bare aluminum would be cool with a new clear coat.

    Don't worry, your wife won't notice.

    That's a great deal! I'd say it is closer to a C52CM size which would give it an effective ST size of about 52/53cm.

    I have a Paddy Wagon listed going for $450 but it has barely been used:

    Default 2006 Specialized Allez bike frame... good deal or no?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Specialized-...-/200937287028

    2006 Specialized Allez currently at $305 (I just bid on it and I am thinking about getting it and then picking up the parts to build the rest of it. I am very new to this though, so I thought I'd get some advice concerning total cost. You guys were supportive in suggesting resources to look for a stolen bike of mine, so I thought I'd turn here again!

    The bike MSRP'd for $1700 in 2006, so at first glance this is a steal; no matter what bike I get though, my budget is no more than $600-700 total.

    Here's what it would need, and my assumption of what average prices are (I don't need anything fancy; it's just for exercise).

    -Bike frame (with shipping; depends if the price bids up much more) ($375)
    THEN:
    -Wheels ($125)
    -Inner tubes ($30)
    -Shifter cables ($40)
    -Chain ($35)
    -Saddle ($30)

    All total, about $600-700

    SO..
    1.) Does this seem like a realistic estimate?
    2.) Is the bike worth it? Existing parts seem to be in good order and it's a great frame.

    THANKS!
    Alex
