When your bike arrives at Evans Cycles it is still a long way from being ready to ride. The bikes arrive flat packed for ease of transport from the factory.
It can sometimes be hard to see where the packaging ends and the bike begins!
BEWARE! Many online retailers will simply ship the bike to you in this flat packed state requiring you to fully assemble the bike at home. This is time consuming and challenging, especially if you don’t have the specialist tools and skills to do the job.
Comprehensive assembly is a STANDARD SERVICE on all bikes purchased at Evans Cycles.
For your convenience, comfort and safety ALL bikes purchased via our mail order service or through the Evans Cycles website are fully assembled and tested by one of our Cytech qualified mechanics prior to being dispatched.
During the assembly process the forks, wheels, seat-post and components are fitted. Gears and brakes are adjusted (disc brakes bled if necessary), wheels are trued, tyres pumped up and all nuts and bolts tightened.
In order to safely package and ship the bike to you we then turn the handlebars 90 degrees and remove the pedals (when supplied) from the bike.
