If your new to mountain biking, then a single speed is probably not the best introduction; the stainless steel chain listed will relate to the half-link chain which is / should be fitted as it's a single speed.
As you are 6'2", would be looking for a 29er, as these suit taller riders, as you are, but wouldn't think you are that tall not to be able to find a bike that fits.
As you are new to MTB's, buying new from a LBS does have advantages, ok, it will cost more, but you are buying their advice, will get a bike that fits, and have a service & warranty on top, which you don't get going the 2nd hand route.
