I don't live up that far, I do trust Bountiful Cycle.
I should add though, My pal got a Wal-Mart bike, against my advise, Ended up riding my old commuter bike.
I have learned these things as I am an urban rider.
Get a bike with proper equipment. Street tires, MTB tires get flats and slow you down. Telescopic forks, especially cheap ones don't do much.
I recommend also pick a bike with means to mount racks and cargo items, as well as lights and other things you may need.
Not my place to say what brands, but go to a good shop and find out your suggested size, even if you don't buy from them.
I have seen commuter bikes that are built smart, Keep looking. Try Nashbar.here are 7 to pick from.
HOPE this helps some....
