I'm looking to get a road bike to use for exercise (I do cross country running in the fall) and so I don't have to drive everywhere. I'm not looking to spend a fortune and while I want a decent road bike it doesn't have to be top of the line. For this reason older road bikes have peaked my interest because of their price (also cause it'd be cool to have a unique bike). Can you guys recommend which to buy? Or perhaps give advice on what I should be looking for?
I've found a couple on Craigs list -
http://providence.craigslist.org/bik/665072758.html - Fuji 10 speed, unknown year
http://providence.craigslist.org/bik/689293220.html - 1968 Bottecchia 10 speed
http://providence.craigslist.org/bik/715152817.html - Gitane Champion 12 speed, unknown year
http://providence.craigslist.org/bik/715157615.html - Trek 12 speed model 022, unknown year
I am 5' 7" so I think most of these would be fine except maybe the Bottecchia? I don't know tell me if I'm wrong.
