Bike comes largely pre-assembled in the box and comes
with user and assembly instructions from Montague and the
component manufacturers.. You will need to fit the front
wheel and seat, both with quick release mechanisms, and
Cross threading: the pedal
stub is steel and the crank is aluminum, so take care not
to cross thread the pedal into the crank. Should you decide
to use folding or demountable type pedals
your local bike shop will be able to advise you of the suitability
of each of these types of pedal.
Check that the brake levers do not foul the horizontal tube,
to adjust the brake lever positions on the handle you will
need an Allen key.
Tyres will need inflating. Offroad bikes 40psi or 50psi plus for on road use. Pavement bikes 80-100 psi.
Overtime, the brake and gear cables will strech, gears may not index correctly and there may be excess movement on the brake levers. Best have the gears and brakes adjusted by a qualified bike mechanic.
If the bike is to be used on the road most of the time
with occasional use off road, then consider changing the
tyres to puncture resistant hybrid types.
