If you can do your own maintenance and can finish the assembly of a new/boxed bicycle then buying online can save some money. But if you want help with fitting the bike and maintenance after you buy, then the extra money at an established and reputable bike shop is well spent. The best deals on used bikes can be found on CraigsList, but you have to know what you are looking for, especially where to inspect for possible damage. Best deal for an inexperienced cyclist is to find a good bike shop.
