I'll accept any advice too. I don't have any experience assembling bicycles, but I'm pretty mechanically inclinded.

Basically, it's driving me nuts trying to find a out of the box bike that I'm comfortable with spec and price.

My price range is about a $1000 CDN.

Why don't you tell us what *exactly* you are looking for in a bike, and someone might be able to recommend an off the peg one that suits your needs.

Building from the frame up is a lot more expensive than buying a complete factory bike, and if you are realistic about what you want spec wise there most likely is an off the peg to suit your needs in your price range .
