Unless you are independently wealthy, are sure of the bike you want, and have completely stopped growing (both height and weight) - none of which is likely at age 15 - buy a used bike. You can do quite well for $500, and such a bike would not hold you back in the least for entry level racing and training. Seek out a good fit in a 3-5 year old bike and you'll do fine.
