Bike Ordered!

On Monday February 18 receved 3 emails that told me that my bike had been shipped.

One of the emails had a lot of good informaton on assembley and links to maintenance. I will include it:

Thanks for your order Your item will be shipped via UPS.
The tracking number is as follows: xxxxxxxxxxxx
You can track it at (sometimes it takes 24 to 48 hours to show in their system)

Thank you for your order; we are sure you will love your bike. Bikes are shipped knocked down with pedals, handlebars, seat, and front wheel off.The brakes and derailleurs will need some minor adjustment., sometimes wheels need minor truing. It takes us about 25 minutes to setup a bike that is shipped like this. It is very easy to do; but most customers like to take their time and spend about an hour on setup.

If you would like to know more about bike assembly and adjustment, please see the following links:

or or
or check the manual at

please note -- pedals are left and right threads -- the right pedals goes in the right side; left in the left side -- pedals should be greased and NEVER forced in. A stripped crank is always a setup error due to improper pedal installation. Just take it slow and it should be no problem. If you feel it is beyond your expertise or you prefer to not fool with the set up of your new bike, a fair price at a Bike Shop to assemble is about $25 to $50 in most areas of the country.

Please email me when the item arrives.I am happy to answer questions and address concerns.

If you need parts, clothing, or accessories we think you should try out most sites, they do not charge shipping! On items like Helmets, Computers, Shoes, and components can save you a lot. Many of our customers buy the starter tool kit and bike repair video at could easily be the best $20 you ever spent.

Thanks again andRemember we are always here to help you out
