I was hoping to be riding my new bicycle today, but that's not happening. Went down to the store yesterday to get the pedals (ended up getting a clipless/platform combination) and they guy told me middle of next week. It's their busy season, and my thought that they would be able to do it quickly was mere wishful thinking.
Also got a lock, a pump that attaches to the frame, and a patch kit. These three items are sitting on my desk, a constant reminder that my bike has arrived and it sitting in pieces waiting for someone to get to it.
I should have been a bike assembly mechanic.. then I wouldn't have to wait. (:
