The manuals typically supplied with bicycles are poor to non-existent. A bike shop bike may be a bit more expensive, but it is a better place to buy a bicycle if you haven't a clue about fitting, assembly, or even if this kind of bike is right for you.
Speak for yourself. Just because you (clearly) have no mechanical aptitude doesn't mean the vast majority of cyclists don't. Just what exactly do you do when something breaks on your bike and you're 30 miles from home? Call AAA? Hipster.
