What is your budget? If looking to buy at a department store price (say $100-$200), I'd recommend buying a used bike on Craigslist. There are plenty of good bikes available at that price which will be much better quality than a department store bike. Two things to think about if going used:

(1) You'll need some advice as to which bikes are a decent price or not. You can use the C&V valuation forum to get feedback on the bikes you find.
(2) You'll have to be comfortable doing a some work on your own bike. This is not hard and you will want to learn to do this on a new bike as well.
