Since you have a trainer, you just need a bike that shifts and has a good crank and rear wheel. You don’t really need brakes; and any front wheel that isn’t tacoed will work.

Think of it as your trainer bike, not a bike you will actually ride anywhere. That will come next year, or whenever you are ready to get out on the street.

It makes your $500 budget much more manageable.
