Is it standard to have a professional at my LBS build the wheels with the hub?
Buying everything online and having a bike shop put it together for you can be done ,
But the politics of it is questionable.
At least bring in the hub & rim .. pay them for the spokes and assembly labor.
I suppose the aesthetics of the Round cambium grip appeals to you . With the saddle match.
I Got Ergon Grips for the way they feel , on longer rides , rather than appearance .
their Biocork composite may go well with your tan color scheme.
ERGON BIKE ERGONOMICS
Kalloy laprade is pretty Basic.[ Notch-y adjustment) there are better ,
If saving Money ..I would go with a Plain One
and have found the saddle clip Brompton makes better easier to adjust the angle of the saddle
than the head on many seatposts that include a head on them ..
