I wouldn't recommend ordering a bike on-line, you really need to try it out to see how it fits, and if you're relatively new to cycling the post sales support a LBS can offer is worth having.
With regard to other bikes, there's little to choose in terms of quality between any of the bigger brands, but frame design and spec. will vary - try as many as you can.
Currently riding an MTB with a split personality - commuting, touring, riding for the sake of riding, on or off road :)
