It came in two boxes from west Japan, so I got to do the assembly. I was very glad to have the workstand I got for Christmas!
I also added some of the new Shimano Click'R clipless pedals -- which take much less force than traditional SPD in order to disengage. Good for someone to learn how to use clipless. Then it was off to a nearby shop to help him choose cycling wear and accessories, to use up of some of the money saved from getting a used bike ... and he is good to go.
