Anyone built a bike with a dan's build kit?

Hey Gents,

I'm anxious to get this heaton built up and I've been looking at one of the dan's build kits to get a rideable bike asap, and replace stuff with nicer stuff as I break it.

Anything in those kits that is horrible/deathtrap out of the box (all of it lolololol)?

Here's a link: I'm considering the expert kit.

Their cheap pedals are decent, a little better than the wellgo's, but just pay another 15 bucks for the Jim C's and never look back. I'd probably use one of their seatposts and clamps if I was short on cash, since I slam the seat anyway..
