Bikes -When your new bike arrives you are responsible for checking it over for any damage that may have occurred during transit. If you do find anything to be damaged or missing, please do not hesitate to call us on 0208 508 0682 and we will resolve any issues ASAP.
Our mechanics will build and check every bike before it is shipped however, some basic assembly is usually required after unpacking. We recommend that you have your bike assembled by a professional bike mechanic but if you feel competent in assembling it yourself, here’s a general checklist of steps to take:
1. Remove all packaging from the bike
2. Rotate the stem around if necessary to be in line with the front wheel. Fit the handlebars to the stem using the correct size hex/torx keys and tighten all bolts to the manufacturer's recommended torque rating
3. Fit the front wheel into the forks and fasten securely in accordance with your bike’s instruction manual (may be hard copy or downloadable from brand website)
4. Make sure your brakes are correctly fastened for operation. Make sure no cables or hoses are wrapped around the frame to cause friction or restrict movement of the handlebars
5. Insert the seatpost into the seat tube of the frame using a suitable assembly grease, and tighten the seat collar using the correct size hex/torx keys to the manufacturer’s recommended torque rating. If your bike has a quick release seat clamp, make sure that you do not over tighten the bolt before closing as this could damage your frame. If your bike is supplied with a dropper seatpost, you may need to route a remote cable/hose through your frame. If you are unsure how to do this please refer to the instruction manual included with your bike, seek advice from a qualified bicycle mechanic or give us a call on 0208 508 0682 - our technicians are always happy to help.
6. Fit your pedals (note - not all bikes are supplied with pedals - check spec for specific info) to the cranks using a suitable assembly grease on the axle threads. Make sure that the pedals are fitted on the correct sides - they are Left and Right specific and will have identifying marks to assist. Fitting on the incorrect sides can cause damage to the components. Note also that pedals are threaded differently on each side of the bike - see pedal fitting guide supplied with bike for more details.
7. Check that the brakes are functioning correctly before riding your bike
8. Make a note of your bike’s frame number (usually stamped on the underside of the bottom bracket shell). This is used for warranty and insurance purposes, in case the bike gets stolen
9. After your first ride be sure to check that all fixings have remained tight to the manufacturer’s recommended torque ratings
These steps may vary from model to model so please contact us for advice if you have quesitons about what is required for a particular bike.
