You wont get anything decent for that cheap, you need to spend at least $330 or so

if thats what you got to spend you cant get anything of high quality brand new. But the craigslist is a great place to look for a used bike of a higher quality, its just second hand. which aint no big deal to me, i kind of like having to clean up a bike or have to repair something minor from the begging because it gets you more knowledgable of your bike.good luck

from the first post how were they supposed to know it was for a kid? that really changes things in terms of prices and recomendations.
