WTB a road bike

Looking for a road bike in the orange county area. Not willing to pay shipping on out of state or anything so only local...

I'm looking to getting a road bike, not a fixie or anything.
This will be my first road bike.. i don't need anything fancy, not looking to spend a ton of dough on one either. i'm going to use it to get into shape for baseball and possibly cummute here and there.


If you have anything lying around the garage, feel free to post a pic. i will even get a fixer-uper if it is priced well.

thanks

nothing on craigslist? I'd check small bike shops around you're area. I used to ride bmx and the shop i went to, now takes trade-ins and sells the used stuff pretty cheap. I found a haro and trek for about $115.
