I agree,go to a shop. A good less expensive alternative to buying a trek or something like that is an Iron Horse or a Marin.Iron Horse is low grade for a bike, but its way better than a department store bike.Next makes P.O.S. bikes,they may look nice in the store but you will have problems soon after a few rides.Check out a Galyans if you have one nearby,they offer a free tune-ups for one year and offer free lifetime adjustments(brakes,gears,lube,tightening stuff down).They sell the Marin and Iron Horse.
Its the best bang for your buck.
