It's great but I've already put a few hundred into it getting lighter wheels, new cassette, etc.

If it doesn't seem like you'll get real into it, I'd recommend just getting a used bike from a reputable shop in the area. If you really enjoy it I'd just buy a new bike for $400-600 and be done with it.
Sounds like you are moving ahead with your biking.

I got my bike for about ~$240 + 3 years extended warranty (includes 3 annual tune ups). I figured, I can try it out for year or so, and if I like it I'll get nicer bike later.
