Word of advice though; be careful parking downhill - these bikes stay just about straight up when they're on the kickstand. The kickstand doesn't lock so if you aren't in gear or if you are in gear with slack in your drivetrain the bike can (and has for a dozen or so people) roll forward. When they roll they cause the kickstand to partially fold up and they flop on their side.
Keep at least 20-30 lbs in the rear shock to make it lean more onto the kickstand. And if you don't keep your bike in gear when it's parked you should get into the habit quickly!
By the way, you get used to the sewing machine sound. If it sounds weird that means it's running!
