Quality costs, especially on new bikes. Have you checked out Craigslist for your area?
Thanks a lot. I got the $275 Diamondback, ended up being $291, plus my kickstand about $7.99. Seems like a good bike, and Dick's even let me keep it up there so a bike expert could run everything and make sure it is okay. I might pick it up tomorrow.

Thanks.
