Descartes,

You don't need to pay to get fitted to a bike. When I was looking for a new bike, I swung by my LBS and kicked a few tires. They also let me stand over a few frames and would have let me ride their bikes as well. But, I didn't need to take it that far. Once I figured out what frame size to get I bought everything online. There is a massive profit margin in the bike industry. You would get your best deal online or at a shop on last season's bikes. I can tell you right now that 500 bucks won't get you much of a bike. I bought a Fat Chance MTB in 1991 for $2200. Today it rides no different from the day I bought it.
