Tips to Avoid Common Mistakes:

If you are not familiar with bike assembly, it may be best to have it assembled by a bike shop or have them inspect your assembly. If you need assistance please share pictures and contact us:

As with many bike components, proper installation is important to avoid damage to the bike and to avoid injury while riding the bike. 

  • Crank arms & Pedals
    • Make sure your pedals and crank arms are installed correctly. The crank arms must be at 180° from each other. 
    • Before installing the pedals, It's very important to apply a conservative amount of grease to the pedal threads. This will ensure the pedals are making a solid seat into the crank arms and help mitigate the pedals from being seized in the crank arm.
    • The left pedal must go on the left. It is reverse thread, align it and screw it in by hand counter clockwise. It should go in easily. Do not force it or cross-thread it. Then tighten with a thin wrench no wider than the flat surface.
    • The right pedal must go on the right. It has a standard thread, align it and screw it in by hand clockwise, it must be properly aligned and should go in easily. Once in, tighten with a thin wrench no wider than the flat surface.
  • Handlebars & Wire/Cable routing.
    • Before installing handlebars, check wire and cable routing, you may need to flip (left to right, right to left, front to back, back to front). 
    • The wires should leave the handlebars and smoothly sweep down to the left side of the bike frame. 
    • When you tighten the stem onto the handlebar clamp area intermittently tighten the screws in a crisscross pattern making sure the gap is the same at all locations.
  • Fork - Make sure your fork is not backwards. The brake caliper and rotor should be on the left. 
  • Brakes - Do not touch the brake rotors with your fingers. The oil can contaminate them and cause noise when braking.
