It's the whole time/money thing that never seems to be in the right ratio. At least when I was working (stateside), I could ride there.

using a larosa (or similar) spring solo mount and a a crossbones style seat (because they are pretty cheap on ebay). There is a guy on the xl forum with that setup and it doesn't look too bad
