I haven't ridden a road bike since I was 12-13 riding my father's much to big for me Panasonic 10 speed. I've been riding mountain bikes for a few years now and I think that I should start looking at a road bike as a nice compliment to my mountain bike. The only problem is that I a bit cash strapped right now. not severly so, but I can't exactly go out and buy Colnago right now. Right now i'm just kicking the idea around in my head. I might go road, track, or cyclocross at this point, I have to get out and start trying out frames. But I was hoping that you guys could suggest a few rides at or under the $700 price range. Thanks alot in advance guys.

In that price range (and because you aren't quite sure what your are going to get into), you may want for something used.

If you were even a little witty - versus a the half wit you exhibit - you might be enjoyable. As it is, you're just annoying.
If you ride as poorly as you write, you're probably walking.

I was reading the new Bicycling magazine on the airplane today, and they had great things to say about the Iron Horse Cyclone. The bike costs only $450!
I have absolutely no idea if the bike is any good, but found it amazing that such an inexpensive bike would be so highly praised. "7 words about this bike: Aggressively priced. Honest, decent handling. Almost raceable."
Might be worth checking out...
good luck
