WTB Road bike + selling stuff to afford it...

Hey folks,

I've been hitting the streets on a '89 Miyata road bike(56cm) that I converted to SS. Its great and all but its too big for me(5'9"ish) and Im looking for something newer and that fits me proper. I'd say Im in the 54cm range. Price range is on the low(5-8 hundred) end so the bike doesnt have to be spectacular, just something that works, no down tube shifters, and doesnt need any work. 

What I have is:

-'89 Miyata road bike 56cm(painted orange Cheesy). 
-SS(still have the shifter, cassette, and rear derailuer though)
-needs a new BB
-would make a great townie/fixie/cruiser
-I have a rear wheel w/ a fixed gear hub and 16T cog that goes with(instant hipster-street cred!)
-$75

-IRO 29er SS(large)
-rigid fork
-shimano mech brakes
-Race Face handlebar and stem
-WTB front/rear wheels
-Race Face cranks
-ready to roll and rides great(just a little too big for me)
-$300 

These items would be sold to fund previously mentioned roadbike so trades(with extra $) are cool. I'll try to get pics up later

Thanks yall

IRO 29er is sold...so long old friend.

Miyata Roadie is still available...just in time to ride to the NAHBS. Nothing says " apathetic-hipster-bike nerd" like a 25 year old fixie neon orange road bike!!

Comes with free hub wheel, cassette, and derailluer. 

$75 takes it home
