Nashbar 5000R / Custom
Now that I'm living within walking/biking distance from town, I've been wanting to put together a new bike. I looked at new pre-assembled road bikes and all over craigslist for something in my price range and something tall enough for me—I'm 6'3. Nothing every really fit into that category, so I decided to start from scratch and build my own. After spending some time around town at used bike stores and, I finally found a frame that would work, a 58cm Nashbar 5000R. I was able to pick up the bare frame for about 60 bucks, which included only the headset and front forks, from Center for Appropriate Transportation (CAT) in Eugene. With some help from the guys at my work who are all avid bike builders, racers, enthusiasts, I then spent an entire day back at CAT digging through the used bins for the rest of the parts I would need to make this a light, simple get-around-town bike. The front wheel I was able to pick up used for $25! Total steal if you ask me. The rear, I had to buy new since they did not have any decent rear track wheels with used with flip/flop hubs. The rest is a mashup of used and new parts that totaled about at about 200 bucks, which including renting some bench time at CAT to help chase the threads and install a new crank spindle. Not too bad. Once I get a new brake lever, cable and grips I should be sitting at about $300 total.
Mountain shifters + Road bars
I can kinda understand this. For no especially good reason, other than "because people will pay it" road shifters are significantly more expensive than mountain shifters. It's a fairly low-end bike..... a "GMC Denali" road bike that retails for around $200, so clearly it's very price-sensitive. And I suppose that it's better to do this than stem shifters...
