You have to define "affordable". It means different dollar amounts for different people. What does it mean for you?

You can't even get a sh*tty bike for under a hundred dollars even a used on craigslist. I think you need to elevate your price range.

Up your budget to about $200 and watch Craigslist. There have been quite a few good deals up there lately.

Like C M said, up your budget. The only other way to get a decent bike that cheap is not recommended as it involes a ski mask and a weapon.
