That was fun. Trek is almost all 'out of stock,' which is OK with me, it looks pretty fragile. The KHS (747, ha ha) looks good though, there are two stores around here that have KHS.
I ran across a freaking excellent store, called Zinn, which sells bikes for big and tall people. In Colorado. Still excellent, they have a track bike for tall people.
I will check out Surly and steel bikes, I don't mind steel.
