Have you visited a bike shop and looked at bikes.
Test ride some.

Do you know what shifters I am talking about? I think you click the brakes left and right to shift gears...

I went to my local bike shop and it was not a friendly experience... They were condescending and I believe felt I should already know information I didn't. I had hoped internet forums might be a good place to learn information. It's just so hard to get started because everything is abbreviated and in terms I have not heard.
