Road Bike Assembly – How to build your road bike


Hi, I’m Rhys from Evo Cycles and tody I’m gonna show you how to put together a
bike purchased online from EvoCycles.co.nz All the bikes we dispatch are preassembled by a qualified bike mechanics and then lightly disassembled To fit into a bike box for shipping. Our mechanics have already routed the cables, tuned the gears and brakes, pumped up the tyres and even taken it for a test ride. all the hard stuff has been done All you need to do now is reassemble the bike and you’re ready to go. you are going to need the following tools: 4,5,6MM Allen Keys Cable cutters or plyers, a 15mm spanner or pedal wrench and a torque rench is reccomended. Although I’m using a mechanic stand to compete the job it is not essential. Let’s get started. Locate the small parts box and remove Also locate the seatpost and remove. Install the seatpost to the frame. Then take your appropriate allen key. In this case a 4mm Allen key It is particularly important to take note of the torque setting written on either the seatpost collar or the seatpost tube. I’m using a preset torque wrench in this
case remove the remaining packaging from the bicycle take your 4mm allen key and remove the 4 stem bolts located on the front ensure the cables are not twisted around Install the handlebar to the stem. make sure the central markings are centred ensure all four bolts are done up evenly and that the gap but when the top to
the bottom as also even make sure not to over tighten. Locate the QR skewer in the small parts box please ensure that the springs in the quick release lever are orientated in this way ensure that one spring gets installed either side of the hub with a narrow part towards the inside. quick release skewer goes on the left
hand side the bicycle as you’re sitting on it when doing up the quick release skewer ensure that it points vertically upwards so that you do not have any snags something to not have any snags First identify the left hand pedal. you have to screw and
counterclockwise as it has a reverse thread if the pedals feel stiff at any stage please stop the installation and try
again pedals need to be inserted correctly and tightened so there is no movement. Take your 15mm pedal spanner and tighten the pedal counterclockwise identify the right-hand pedal please keep
in mind the right-hand panel has a clockwise a
right hand thread. If the pedal does not go on smoothly please do not force it as this will void your warranty! and tighten the pedal clockwise it is normal for your gears to bed in but after they do you might need to get your gears tuned up at your local bike store remember to regularly tighten your pedals lubricate your drivetrain and keep your tyres inflated to the reccommended PSI which is found on the sidewall of the tyre all of this is guaranteed to extend the life of your
bike Remember Evo Cycles does free shipping on all orders including bikes and if you have any other questions in
