Well I got it built up and have a first ride under the belt. Needed a buddy to hold the rear rack up while I put the bolts in and the fork spring thing was a little challenge to get on but with the help of some channel locks I got it. Gears and brakes are adjusted correctly out of the box. Headset was a little tight and rotors rubbed a little until I trued them. Everything else seems perfect. Took it out for a first ride and all I can say is WOW! I was expecting it to be cumbersome but it steers really nice and is super comfortable. The seat and grips are perfect as the seat has a handle to pull the bike around and the grips are ergo lock on pieces. Chainstays measure 460mm and it's 43lbs without the bags which is why I think it rides nice. Geometry is pretty relaxed and feels great for me, I'm 5'9". here's some more pictures, let me know if you want any other info.
