And your quote above describes me to a T. I wonder if I could pay someone to build it for me. Maybe I could find a bike builder on Craigslist. But...then that just might push the price up to what a Gary Fisher Wahoo would cost, or $400. I would've thought that Target has a team of mechanics that would assemble the bike for you. From the reading this thread, there are issues that pop up when assmebling a bike. I'll give Forge a call tomorrow and see what they have to say about Target assembling the bikes. I dunno, call me skeptical, but fear alone might push me towards purchasing a pre-assembled Wahoo.JRSCCivic98 said:This brings me to the difficulty of the build. Basically I couldn't find the directions in the box (no big deal, they are on the website), but I didn't use any directions and it wasn't too difficult. I will say that if you don't work on cars or are at least mechnaically inclined you may not want to attempt it.
On another note, I never thought I'd see the day that I'd consider buying a DSB (department store bike).
