    You might be better off taking the bike to a local shop, and have them replace the needed parts. You could do the work yourself, but by the time you buy the tools you'll need, it might not end up being any cheaper...

    Based on your lack of experience with bike mechanics I also recommend a trip to a decent local bike shop (NOT K-Mart, Dicks, Wal-Mart, etc.) to get what you need done properly.
