Why don't you try looking on craigslist for a quality bike. You can usually find a good used Trek, or Giant for $50 or less. Then you will be ready to go, with some decent components. If you use a cheapo from Wallmart you will end up replacing all the junk components in time and it will cost you way more money in the long run.
I buy all my bikes on craigslist, usually mid 90's full chromoly frame bikes. They make excellent builds.
