IAlso, how easy is it to learn how to put a bike together yourself and upgrade various components as needed? I've always been one to fix things myself, but is this completely out of most people's range of knowledge and ability? It just seems so expensive to have a bike shop assemble and install bike components for you, although maybe there is a good reason.
No no, no. If you have any mechanical skills at all, you can learn it no sweat. The problem (not really a problem, but the biggest impediment to the average Joe doing it) is getting the bike-specifric tools you'll need. Invest in the tools and the rest will come. It's also a lot of fun to wrench your own bike.
