Find a good bike shot that has the capabilities to fit you to a bike, properly. The bike you show in your pictures is far to small for you. There is a direct coloration between your physical frame and the bike frame. A good bike shop can make the proper measurements. Once this is done you might want to look at the entry bikes, I hesitate to call them the bottom of the line, but the less expensive bikes. Cannondale makes very good bikes in this range as do other good brands. Select a good fitting bike in say the $600 range. Ride that for an entire season to first, make sure it is the size for you and second to be sure biking is the sport for you. Once that is established there is no end to the money you can spend in this sport. A fine carbon fiber bike with near the top of the line components might cost you over $5000. Because of this you need to know biking is the sport for you.
Good Luck.
