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

    0. That is your answer.

    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.
    You've very successfully put 2 and 2 together and gotten a beaver. You're so far off the mark that you've left numbers altogether and entered addition with mammals.
