I'm planning a trip do Death Valley in january and I'll be landing in Las Vegas where I'll spend the first day or two preparing, and I wonder if anyone has some recommendations for places where I can get the supplies I need.

I think I will book at the HI hostel, Ted hostel, for the couple of nights I'll spend in Vegas.
I want to buy a used bike for getting around Death Valley, probably from Craigslist. I've been regularly checking Craigslist for the last few weeks and there seems to be a reliable amount of decent mountain bikes available in Las Vegas. But if that doesn't work out, does anyone know of other places in Vegas where I could find a used bike, or rent one if it comes to that?
Next, I understand you cannot pack camping stove fuel on an airplane so I will need to buy some there. I've looked around on the internet, but am having trouble locating a store where they'd sell some. Ideally, I'd like to be able to go to a MEC or La Cordée type place near the strip (near the hostel), but any place that sells fuel would do.
Finally, I will have to stock up on food. A search on Google Maps tells me there are many grocery stores at reasonable distances from the hostel, but maybe someone has a specific place to recommend?
