Everyone,

My Atlas arrived today and I just got her out of the box. Assembly seemed simple enough, but I encountered a problem with my front brakes while trying to put the wheel on. I could not put the rotor on the breaks because it is engaged and seemed to be missing a pad. Aside from that the bike arrived in good condition.

The bike is a demo bike and has some scratches on the frame and I expected that. Aside from that everything looks good. Before I take her out for a spin I will take her to a local LBS for a go over to make sure everything is ok.

As promised here are some pics of my Atlas. I will post more pics tomorrow after I clean her up a bit.

I did not see the other pad. It's late and I am afraid if I continue to mess with it tonight. I might mess something up.

Scoured the box and could not find anything else. Anyways, I will have her get looked at so I can ride her ASAP. I am just looking forward to riding.

No, it was not delivered by boat. It was delivered by Fed Ex. It took long to deliver because they had to wait until my e-check cleared and they had to replace the front derailleur because they discovered it was damaged prior to shipping.

The bike set me back $800

$800, eh ok deal. Nothing special, considering lots of used Santa Cruz Hecklers and Superlights are coming up, to name one example, for around those prices and higher end componentry.

My friend got a Superlight for his girlfriend for less than $1g, raceable, but strong components. All near top end stuff.
