    I really wish my parts would get here

    I'm missing a fork and a set of cranks, which pretty much bones me. Today I even threw the shifters, brake levers, and grips on the bars, just so I could feel like I was making some sort of progress.

    Wednesday can't come soon enough. Oh well, at least I'm working monday and tuesday.

    def. waiting for parts sucks.

    but don't worry, as soon as you get them all it will certainly downpour for 3-4 days just to make you even more antsy.

    It's about the same. It helps if you know what you're doing first
