Keep going dude, you'll appreciate it much more if you've got to work for it!

Any chance the shop where you plan to buy it from needs some assistance cleaning up, flat tire or easier repairs..etc. Then you could be working FOR your bike. Plus, the owner may see you as a motivated young un, and give you a discount, OR get you a better bike for the same price!

That's how I started, nearly 19 years ago!
