Despite doing less than 600 miles on a new (although cheep) racing bike I have a clunking sound coming from what appears to be the bottom bracket area. With every turn of the peddals I get this noise and can't find where it may be comming from. Any Ideas?:mad:

It is not a good thing.

Don't delay. If it's a crank loose on the Bottom Bracket you are damaging it by riding.
If it's only 600 miles, a trip to the shop where you bought it is also in order.
