Delivery and Pushkar shoutout

Quick question, once you receive your bike in the box, what setup or remaining build is required? Anything I need to know with regard to setup (brakes, Kindernay, Archon, etc) to complete the bike? Also, I just made a change from the Shimano to Kindernay and working through Pushkar for this is a seamless as it possibly could be. Having bought an ebike or two from other vendors I cannot sate how great it is to build a high level custom bike and have a process as smooth as what Pushkar and team deliver. If this is your first bike from an ebike company, you have no idea of the shenanigans going on out there with the others. That alone is worth the price of admission. Thank you Pushkar for a sublime experience. I do have one request that I'm sure you'll shut down. Can those of us that have ordered from you refer to you as "Push" versus Pushkar, kinda more personal and provides that close knit clubby feeling of "we-ness" we all seek versus what your mom calls you. Ok, please don't ban me for that previous sentence, in my defense I was still basking in the glow of the change order experience. Dude, you rock...

Merle, I'm still waiting like most of us. My post was an inquiry regarding how the bike is shipped and what assembly is required once you receive it. The last part was just a Homage to Pushkar for the product and the way he conducts business. I think it's interesting how we all look at the painted frames in the build pictures hoping to see our selected color and therefore possibly our bike closer to delivery. I know I scan them.

I can comment for my UC Commuter. I have a feeling that this is an evolving process for WW so things will probably change week to week. My shipment was probably end of February. If I remember correctly:
1). Big ass box- like 8x8x3. My delivery guy would only drop it off at the door of my building, so I dragged it into the complex (by myself, just dragged it) and took it apart in the lobby of my condo complex as it couldn't fit in the elevator.
2) Box contained a built bike, I think the only thing that was not connected was the seat/post and the handlebars. The wiring was all connected, so it was just a matter of connecting the 4 hex bolts on the front. And the pedals (make sure you lube pedals always).
3) Charge battery, make adjustments
4) Ride.

I never got the wiring harness, the lights, or the additional springs for my seat, but I should be in line and Pushkar and I have emailed about it.

I think the main difference between WW and other companies is the installation of the front wheel to save shipping space.

That's great information Westlafadeaway. So you've been riding your bike a fare amount then? What is it like to ride? That has the Bafang Ultra too doesn't it? What controller/power do you have?
Thanks for your insights.
