I would say you did very well, but you already know that. A lot of nice gear for that price. Enjoy your new bike and your rides.

Ok so the bike guru was great.... I needed to switch out the horizontal piece that connects the handlebars to the stem so the bars would be closer to me but all in all he said 54cm was a good size cause 52cm the bars would be too low without tweeting it to point of awkward... He says as my fitness level increases the old piece can go back cause I will become more comfortable bending down---didn't ride today cause the weather was horrible Excited for tomorrow!! Beginners ride is the frontage road between napa and yountville!! Hail in napa with thunder.....totally weird!

Thank you Timturo but the bike guru discovered some cosmetic damage on top of the brake hand thingy and I saw a nick on the seat and the chain did fall off once but he adjusted the something and hopefully it won't happen again but the shoes fit perfectly!!
