Try and find someone who knows about road bikes and buy a used one from someone. Most shops have post it boards with a list of bikes for sale. The bike shop in my town has a Trek 5200 used for sale for $1200 and it only has around 1400 miles on it. There are good deals out there, and do pay a little for a fitting to find out the size frame you need. You can always tweek the saddle and stem if you have the proper size frame. You can't make a road bike fit properly if it's just the wrong size!
