WTB: Who has a beautiful 53-55cm bike for my gf? For a grand?

My girlfriend needs a first bike but unfortunately that means her first bike should also be the bike that this 200+# rider has always wanted but can never have... Fortunately we live in California so there are a lot of nice bikes on local craigslist from people that started riding bikes one weekend and stopped three months later.

I am looking for anything with Campy or SRAM that is nice steel/Ti/Carbon...unless there is a gorgeous Caad10 or 12 gathering dust in someone's basement. Anyway, I have been reluctant to post anything on PL because I would rather not bother my brethren, but I introduced my gf to Strava recently and I think she is hooked--but worried that her Santa Cruz Blur (26") is slowing her down.

Do any of you have a nice bike that would make a fantastic first bike for this newly obsessive person, or should we stick to craigslist?

We can't spend more than $1,000 and anywhere in CA might be a great excuse for a road trip so local pickups preferred.

Thanks for your time! IJWS

Update,

I don't think vintage will entice the strava-monster.

Also, $1200 max (per the lady) including shipping and/or local pickup

Thanks again!

What about this? Berthoud, 54x54. I forget what I paid, but it was well under a grand. Catch and release. PM if interested.

2017 Canondale SuperSix Evo High Mod.

I've got a buddy in SLC who is trying to move his 54cm Cannondale SuperSix EVO High Mod with 11Speed Ultegra for 1,200. Team colors and the wheels are new, but I couldn't tell you off hand what they are. DM me and I'll see what I can do to get him to ship the bike, if interested.

Tim

This Specialized is on my local NextDoor: 54cm Specialized EVO Rival build. Listed at $1350, but I would expect will go for less.

There are a few CAADs on Craigslist well within in your price range, for sure.

Curious why no Shimano? If you find a frameset, I have a 5800 group locally (Weho) that I can sell you.

I think the OP is saying that he is 200+ and would fancy a nice bike, but his GF needs one first?
