Boo hoo

About a month ago I decided that I would try commuting to work a couple days a week. So I ordered a bike and was told it would be processed the next day. It ended up taking 2 weeks for my bike just to leave the warehouse. Then it took a week on the truck to get here. I took it to a bike shop to have it assembled and they told me it would be a week. Of course, they were awesome enough to get to it sooner, but I recieved a call today that the fork was not welded properly and it's unusable. So now I have to go through the whole warranty rigamorole of that. Ugh. I bought the bike to be more active and healthy, I've lost 60 pounds since February, heck, I've lost about 15 pounds since I ordered the stupid bike. Anyways, I read the forums daily and I'm totally excited to get on the road but I can't get this thing together for the life of me. Rant over.

I bought a Schwinn Sporterra Comp. I get employee pricing on through schwinn from my work (Nautilus Inc.), so it's not a retailer doing a bad job with the shipping time.
