Assembly Guide


Congratulations on your new bike! We are sure that you will want to get it assembled and out on the road right away. The good news is most the work has been done and your bike is already 85% assembled. Just a few final tasks to complete, so grab some tools and follow the steps below.

NECESSARY TOOLS:

  • Scissors
  • 15mm Spanner
  • 4mm Allen key
  • 5mm Allen key
  • 6mm Allen key *The Copenhagen model only
  • Bicycle grease (recommended)
  • Tyre pump (with presta valve)

UNPACKING & SETUP

  • Open the box and REMOVE ALL OF THE STAPLES in the box flaps so you do not scratch or cut yourself, rip clothes or even scratch the bike.
  • Remove the bike and small accessory box
  • Cut the cable ties that are holding the handlebars and the front wheel in place
  • Remove all of the cardboard that is wrapped around the tubes of the frame and fork
  • Inspect the bike and all the included parts to make sure there are no damaged or missing parts

FRONT WHEEL

  • Remove the black protector that is inserted into the bottom of the fork
  • Grab the front wheel and loosen the bolts on either side, to about 90% 
  • Determine proper direction of the front wheel
  • Place the drops outs of the front fork onto the wheel
  • Fully tighten both bolts equally with the 15mm spanner

STEM & HANDLEBARS

  • FACE PLATE STEM
    • Ensure the brake cables are untangled and in front of the head tube
    • Remove the face plate from the stem and insert the handlebar. Place the face plate over the handlebar and start threading the bolts back into the stem body
    • Align the handlebars and stem inline with the fork
    • Use a 4mm Allen key to equally tighten the bolts
  • TOP BOLT STEM (The Copenhagen)
    • Ensure the brake cables are untangled and in front of the head tube
    • Insert in the stem and lower until until the “minimum insertion” mark is no longer visible
    • Align the handlebars and forks then tighten the stem center bolt using a 6mm Allen key

BRAKES

  • Center your brakes. Are the brake pads sitting an equal distance from the rim? To straighten the brake, loosen the bolt at the back, realign the brake and firmly re-tighten
  • Holding the brake caliper in one hand, Use a 5mm Allen key loosen the bolt holding the cable and squeeze (or release) the brake calipers a little
  • Re-tighten the bolt and secure the cable
  • Align the brake pads to the flat machined breaking surface of the rim
  • Test breaks and adjust cable again if needed

SADDLE

  • Use a 4mm Allen key to loosen the seat clamp
  • Insert the seat post into the frame to the desired height, ensuring the minimum insertion mark cannot be seen
  • Align the nose of the saddle to run parallel with the top tube of the frame
  • Use a 4mm Allen key to tighten the seat clamp

    PEDALS

    • Remove pedals from their packaging. Each pedal is marker “L” for left, and “R” for right on the end of each bolt.
    • Insert the RIGHT pedal into the right side of the bike, the side with the chain. Slowly thread by hand turning the right pedal CLOCKWISE. NOTE: If the pedal does not easily tighten by hand, re-check positioning of the pedal and try again.
    • Insert the LEFT pedal on the left side of the bike. Rotate the LEFT pedal COUNTERCLOCKWISE and tighten it by hand.
    • Use a 15mm spanner to fully tighten both sides.

    TYRES

    • On the tyres sidewall locate the manufacturers recommended inflation pressure
    • Using a hand or floor pump with a gauge, inflate the tyre to half its recommended pressure and check to see if the tyre is properly seated on the rim
    • If the tyre is seated unevenly, let some air out of the tyre and reposition the tire by hand so that it sits evenly
    • Continue to inflate tyre to the manufacturers recommended pressure

    SAFETY CHECK

    • Adjust handlebars and seat to your specific riding needs. Ensure you have tightened everything very securely and make sure tires are properly inflated to the correct pressure before riding.
