If you can't grow a pair, you can always buy them online.
If I ever get to the point where I have to ask a bunch of people I'll never meet for permission to assemble my bicycle, I hope someone shoots me in the head.
The funniest example of this I ever saw was on Retrobike, where some guy installed a bottle cage that was a different color from the rest of the bike, took a picture of it, and started a thread about it titled Is this going too far? One of the replies was "Sadly, I'm afraid it is. Sorry, but it needed to be said."
Oh well. Carry on. :D
