No, I bought it in the box and put it together myself. Next to getting it out of the box, the hardest part of that was installing and adjusting the front brake, a double-pivot caliper; got that dialed in perfectly with help from a Park Tool video. The front wheel was a few thousandths out of true and I left it that way. I'll just take my chances on whether the buyer notices or not. I also had to tighten the headset locknut. None of this is new to me.

Even if I had had the assembly done in a shop, I probably wouldn't have kept a receipt to prove it.

The only LBS I've used would have done worse than I did, based on the quality of their work I've experienced before and since.
