It hasn't actually taken me this long to put it together, there's been a snooze break and a food break too. However, I've got it all working, put my own pedals on (because they're better than the 520s it comes with) and made a start at getting the brakes adjusted (potentially less fiddly than Vs... but still something you want daylight for). I might need a longer seatpost. I might get used to it the height it is. I should definitely change the tyres before commuting. I hear lots of strange tinkling noises when going along the back street-- possibly the alu frame just sounds different. And it's light. Startlingly light.
