    I think you could have done better but the thing that makes this even close to "good" is that it has a new chain, tires etc. If all that is true then it really isn't a bad deal.

    I remove everything ASAP. I want it to look as if it just left the factory (as stock as possible)

    You're going to need pedals if you GF does not have clipless shoes.

    $500 does seem a little high. Do you need the pump? I agree with above. Offer $350 and see what happens.

    Personally, if you buy new it should be new. I would have taken it back.

    Don't fault yourself for not seeing it at first. Like I said, if it was new I would expect new. When I buy a used...

    I too cannot find the Giant model you refer to but... A Trek 7.4 for $679 is a pretty good price. I'm guessing last years model and the shop wants to get rid of it to make room for newer models.

    Heat shrink tubing over cables ?

    First, no I don't mean the whole inner cable (let's get that out of the way first).

    I would say it sounds like you're not getting the chain completely dry. After a thorough cleaning you might want to use some compressed air and blow out any remaining moisture.

    2 packs a day, quit 20 years ago, never looked back. Being an ex-smoker I never preach to smokers. You'll know when it's your time to quit.

    The new cones and ball bearings have been ordered from Wheels Mfg.

    I do have a very nice mechanical caliper and was able to come as close as possible with my order. I think I'm good.
