There are bargains that can be found on Craigslist,
garage sales, flea markets, Salvation Army, Ebay, etc.
But it's only a bargain if you can tell that it's mechanically
sound and is a good fit for you. Since you're not too
familiar w/ bikes yet, I would suggest you try your local
bike coop's or bike shops for a used bike. They will
usually check the bike for mechanical problems and will
give you some kind of warranty.

If you can stretch you budget just a bit more, $100 - $200;
you should be able to get a new hybrid from your local
bike shops. It will be the correct size for you and will come
with a 1 year warranty. Good luck, keep us posted.
