once again, most will tell you to get the dk sixpack for a little bit extra. so i'll be different and suggest some others. if you cant possibly spend more than $250, the hoffman disrupter 1 or the stolen goblin. both are decent entry levels. but as i said, most will tell you to spend that little bit extra.

$50 more dollars will get you the DK Six Pack like everyone is telling you. And it's well worth saving up that much more for a solid complete.

What about the Stolen Getaway? That looks pretty good. But so does the DK Six Pack.

Can't really go wrong with the 6 pack for a fairly cheap good quality bike.
