New convert to folding bikes, figured I'd start entry-level with one of the scratched Eco 3's from ThorUSA. Now, after a bit of conversation, he said that he'd set it up best he could, but that shipping would obviously screw some things up. So what I'm wondering is:
How good is ThorUSA's rep? Has anyone else heard of them? From his correspondence, he seemed like a good guy, but I don't know what that means about quality of product
What can I do to "finish" the set up of the bike? Is there any basic thing I could look for? I have some basic ratcheting tools and their ilk, would I be able to do this on my own? I'd rather not have to take it to my local LBS, I have a feeling they'd berate me for getting a cheaper bike (last time I tried to go there, they tried to pressure me to get a more expensive bike, which quite frankly I wouldn't have been able to afford. And I don't know if they'd be too enthusiastic about fixing up my internet bought one).
