Well after being overdue to arrive at the LBS for 10 days , I got the call that my new bike had arrived . So far I'm loving it, though I admit my only recent comparison is a bigbox store bike so it's (needless to say) night and day.
I did change out the seat and grips... as many folks kindly recommended to this nOOb, and it definitely made a difference. The lock-on grips are nice and the seat (for it's price-range) has made a nice difference. For now, I'm going to leave the cage pedals on there because I'm as green as the grass in spring so I want to concentrate on 'everything else' right now, at least for a little while.
I've been out riding so I haven't had time to take a bunch of pics but since I got it just before nightfall on Thursday and I had to run my open mic that night anyways, I grabbed a few artsy shots for fun.
The red was DEFINITELY worth the wait.
