Alright guys, new guy here. I am looking to get a road bike to ride for exercise locally. I wont be riding 50miles per day, or *needing* a $1000 bike. I am looking for sub $200 bikes on craigslist. I know enough to stay away from Walmart, so I am looking used. So many other hobbies I have are a "well spend a bit more and get more", and yes I know I should double my budget to get more right now, but I simply cant at this point in time, $200 is about it. I have found several bikes on craiglist (Raleigh, GMC, Moto, peugot, trek) that fit my 6'1" frame (which is apparetly a 57-58cm bike?), but I dont know enough about the bikes to know what is cheap junk, or what is decent cheap junk. Anything to look out for? Any brands to stay away from?

Thanks to all who can provide help.
