It's a fine bike. You paid for it. Go ride it.

You have breached protocol, your noobleyness. You must take a picture of it and post it in "The really new and improved Post Your Rigs" sticky.

You're 100% correct, but what the OP is doing by posting now is nothing out of ordinary consumer purchase behaviour. In fact, it's a great example of "post purchase dissonance".

OP - it's a fantastic bike, so just go out and ride it.

I recommend rockhoppers and a couple of others to people who ask me what bike to buy. I regard them as good all around hartails.
