I agree with Bekologist. Any "training", commuting, or enjoyment could possibly be cut short by continuing frustration with the mechanical performance of the bike. Huffy's and the like are OK for kids, I think, since kids' bikes are so mechanically simple. However, once you get into something far more complex, and something that ideally you want to last longer...watch out.
But hey, once you join the Army nowadays, you'll never be home to enjoy your bike anyway.
