Well, I had a beater mountain bike for years and I'm looking to get into a road bike... my only problem is that the local bike shop looked at me like I had two heads when I said I wanted to spend like $300. Can a decent road bike be had for that?

Hello thehenbarris, you could possibly consider the Denali if you have any wrenching skills. It would not be my first choice, but here's a thread to keep you busy:
Otherwise, check Craigslist, the local thrift shops, and garage sales in your area. A good used steel road bike is a joy to ride, and relatively easy to keep in good nick. If you have questions about the suitability of anything you find, just ask over at Classic & Vintage.
