Hi and welcome to the forums. It really is best to go to your local store if you don't know much about it...well that is assuming you have a good local store, some aren't any better than buying online other than you can go there and complain face to face when something is wrong. We have a good LBS and they did a fantastic job of getting me fit on my first road bike here about a month ago. Swapped the saddle, bars and stem all to get the correct fit, you won't find that online...but you do pay a bit more for it. Well worth it in my opinion. Then of course there is the benefit of helping the little guy stay open...this is god for you because you won't then have to order tubes over the net when you get a flat and all of the little local shops are out of business (could happen some day).
