if that's in american dollars then you won't find anything good for that price. if it's in euro, then 200 euros could get you something decent.

If you watch craigslist you can get a Haro from $75 to $175

thats a good enough bike to last you until you get a job

yea, if you're on that tight of a budget i would check craigslist for a used bike, i'm sure you could find something pretty good that isn't too beat up that will last you until you get a job :)

at that price, get a used bike on craigslist. anything new in that price range would be a wasteful investment. before you buy something, post a link here so we can let you know if it's worthwhile.

at your size and weight, you might as well get a small race bike for now. what's the closest big city to where you live, so we can dig through some craigslist pages to find you a bike?

wow, idk about the wtp bike, but they're new stuff is good.

And that fit looks pretty good man. Ask to lower the price a little bit, but don't lowball them.

dude you should look into brands like diamondbacks, not the best but very good for starters,



things you should look for in first bikes is

3 peace cranks
standard headset, not threaded.
a thing with a stem not a goose heck
try and get 2 peace bars
and if you can efford sealed BB is the best, much better then lose ball BB

i hope ive helpd mate,

i started off with a diamondback joker 08 and it was a very good starter bike it didnt die!

and it was only 400 australian dollars so thats probably around 250-300 in usd

so ya id say for you just save alittle more and get what you want or else you'll hate yourself later on when your good but have a really shitty bike :)

<3 asians are cool haha
