Hey all!

I am in the market for a $300-$500 bike that I will use for a cardio workout. I want the biggest bang for my buck, something prefferably in a mountain or hybrid form and comfortable for long rides. Any suggestions?

Also, could you include some reliable, cheap online retail stores where I could purchase the bike?

There are alot of bikes in this price range. Giant, Trek, are nicely designed in this range, for starters. Have you been attracted to any brands/models so far?

I'm riding a Specialized Sirrus Elite for fitness and it's been comfortable for rides of 50-60mi so far yet it's still quick and nimble feeling. It's basically a flat bar road bike. Specialized offers several different priced versions but I bought mine on sale for nearly $500 (last yrs model). Another nice similar bike is the Giant Cypress SX. Both bikes are fun to ride and aimed at fast pavement riding.
