I got a cheap bike for now and I'm going to save up for a proper bike... I wish I could spend more right now, but I didn't want to work this summer so I can't justify that kind of purchase right now.

Millerad, I wish I saw that before I got my bike!!!! IT WAS actually within my price range too! Ahh I feel like crap now.

@James, as suggested by this forum you could buy a used bike as your $100 beater bike and buy another good bike from LBS after a while of riding around in your bike. That way you could get feel of things to come ( assuming you are completely new to biking like me). This forum has helped me a lot in choosing the right bike. Yes; do not buy box store bikes as most of them have steel frame and awfully heavy and inefficient to ride.
