Go to your LBS and have them help you find one that fits your frame size. Don't worry about the brand name. Worry about getting a bike that fits you and that they will work on for you. I don't have the miles that some people have here, but I found an LBS that seemed to care and will work on the bike as needed to make it work for me.
I live 60 miles from them, but they still work with me and will stay late when they know I am headed there as soon as I can get off of work.
I ride Jamis, because that is what they carry. I bought an aluminum frame and put in 3000+ miles so far this year and I am 6'3" and about 235. I also keep a close eye on my rims for straight and true.
Good luck with your search and have fun riding.
