Seeing as how you are new to the sport, I would recomend something from either Hoffman or Mosh. They pack most bang for the buck. Then as you progress you can upgrade parts.

I have been riding for about a year now (although I still suck...) and my Trek Vert1 is a pretty nice bike. All I have had to replace are the grips and tires, and those are from ware and tear.

But from what I hear, Hoffman makes really nice bikes.

Look into DK bicycles. They have a lot of good bikes for pretty cheap. I recommend the DK Sixpack, its light, has good parts, and pretty cheap.

The DK sixpack should be around 400 bucks. You can probably find them on ebay, or get the older version of the Sixpack for around 300 to 350 bucks.

you can get a decent free agent for 300$ that will last for a good while but u might have to replace some minor things like pedals
brakes or small stuff like that
