If you can't pay cash, don't buy another bike......
So buy (very) used, and see how it goes. If you still need a better bike in a few months THEN buy the almost new bike somebody else dropped, and got scared off.
The depreciation on a brand-new bike is staggering. Let someone else pay that. Very close to 100% of bikes hit the ground at some point. The sooner everyone gets over the first boo boo, the better.
Invest in the best riding gear you can, instead. It will outlast the bike, if you are lucky, and good. Spend every thing else on training..... that will pay off for a lifetime.

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "
