Yep, sounds like a really solid first ride to me. I just got my trek '08 1.2 WSD a few days ago. The components are a notch down from yours, but I wouldn't know the difference now.

This is a tad bit fishy, like others have said. I honestly don't think your intentions were bad, but that you might have not thought it all through.
