looking to get into the sport a little bit. i know a little bit about bikes but am by no means an expert, looking for help as if i should build a bike out of new and used parts? or just find a bike that suits my needs and go that route?

You'll spend more, and tool cost add up...but you'll have a great idea on how everything works.

if money's not an issue and you want to learn more about bike mechanics, definitely build; if you're trying to save money and/or get a good deal, buy a closeout online or from your LBS.

p.s. Are you in California, Arizona or Nevada? You can get a fairly good deal by going to Sport Chalet because they're going out of business.

.....or 3rd option 2nd hand. See if you can get some help from someone who knows their stuff but you can get some bargains on pretty much brand new bikes.
