This bike would necessarily be underrated, but a bike that represents a great deal of frame and components for the money. Jamis, GVH Landshark, even Raleigh or Fuji...

Had a custom frame build for me in '89 and it's still my main ride. Pretty good bang for the buck (50,000 + miles and still seems as good as new). So yeah, maybe a Richard Sachs or a Seven or something - has to be good enough that you won't start lusting after other bikes after a few years. Just buy new parts when they wear out. And be very careful with your choice of color.

www.coloradocyclist.com - definitely worth a peak.
These bikes make some of their competition look overpriced and ordinary.

Is that a steel fork? I would want to lose some weight and replace it with a CF. But agree with the Doug Ti--great value for the price.

My Airborne Zeppelin with Ultegra. If I didn't think it was the best value (in my price range anyway), I wouldn't have bought it two months ago.
Titanium frame, nicely built. I get a lot of compliments at rides.
