As indicated, my bike arrived today. I was very excited to get it. I pretty much knew this would be the case but of course it was not even close to beign 90% assembled as advertised. As a true beginner, I must say the required assembly is somewhat overwhelming. That of course is the downside to saving money and ordering online. Still very happy with my purchase. This is my first serious mountain bike, so I'm holding off until tomorrow when my friend with a lot more experience is going to give me a hand and ensure I do everything correctly.
I did start putting a few things together and quickly realized they shorted me two bolts. This wouldnt really be a problem if they were common bolts but they have that Torx T25 pattern and I have no clue where I would get those. I emailed them and hopefully they will resolve the issue ASAP. They're for attaching the brake rotor to the wheel so I'd like to make sure everything in perfect in that department.
Speaking of those bolts, I also now know I have to find wrench to tighten the bolts that were included. I assume my LBS would carry the Torx T25 wrench???
Anyway, once I get this thing assembled I'll post some pictures and my first impressions from riding it.
