Apparently you can have it delivered and assembled for an extra $165 or something like that. We decided not to do that, because of course we're intelligent people, five college degrees between the three of us. Certainly we can handle the assembly of a simple piece of weight equipment. So we shoved it in the van and brought it home.

So its quite a workout just getting it down the stairs and into the basement and then trying to put the damn thing together. Mike and I worked on it for the last 4 hours or so, and we're half way done. The rest will wait til tomorrow.
