I would like to purchase a beater bicycle. I will use it to go several miles along a maintained bike path to get to a subway station. My ideal scenario: I travel to a location where there are several shit bicycles. I select one of the shit bicycles, I hand someone a smallish amount of money, and I stop thinking about purchasing a bicycle. I don't care if it is a pink bicycle covered in swastikas provided that it works and is reasonably priced. Let's make this happen!

DCFilter: I'm in DC, trying to buy a bike from someone on Craigslist. He's in VA. What's a good Metro station to meet at so I can test-ride the bike?
While we're at it -- what are some things to be wary of when buying a used bike?

Hey Mefites! This is my first post and I definitely need help. I have my motorcycle license and took the MSF course. I most certainly will buy good gear to protect myself. I consider myself a safe driver (car so far), no accidents or speeding tickets and generally drive slow. [more inside]

How do I find/buy/examine a used roadbike? I don't want to win the Tour De France, I just want to cycle around the lake near our house 2-3 times a week (which I can access crossing just one major street which has a stoplight). Approx. 12 miles or so... [more inside]
