    What to check when putting together my Elite Adventure?

    Hi all,

    I just bought a Motobecane Elite Adventure and it should arrive Friday. I'm a complete novice, so I figured I'd have my LBS assemble it. But after hearing that others found it easy, I figured I'd save myself $60 and learn a bit in the process.

    This vid (linked from bikesdirect) makes it look like a snap:

    What should I check after assembly? Or is it worth giving it to the LBS for a once-over?

    Thanks!

    It's a bit more than that, but nothing crazy. I'd follow along with the steps that park tools has on their "build a bike" checklist. And youtube videos when you have questions, which you probably will. If you still can't figure it out, ask away. Only stupid question is "what does yellow snow taste like?" That's a very stupid question.
