2. Attach and assemble the cockpit



2.1 Remove the cardboard packaging from the cockpit, so the sides are freely hanging down as pictured.

2.2 Slide the cockpit sides into the centre of the cockpit.

2.3 Ensure that there is no gap between the bar ends and the cockpit.

2.4 Take the cockpit screws from the toolbox. Then take the supplied torque wrench to hand, ready for the next steps.

3. Attach the front wheel



3.1 Remove the orange stopper from the brake calliper. IMPORTANT: do not pull on the brake lever until you’ve installed the front wheel.

3.2 Guide the wheel up into the fork. Simply make sure you guide the brake rotor between the brake pads and it will work. If something gets stuck, remove the wheel and try again.

3.3 Take the through axle from the toolbox and use the orange and black torque wrench to tighten to 10 Nm.

4. Mount the seatpost



4.1 Before the initial assembly, the assembly paste may not be applied to the seatpost or seal. Make sure that the screw of the integrated saddle clamp is fully loosened. Then insert the seatpost so that it is slightly tilted forward, to prevent it hitting the seal. Once you have inserted the full width of the seatpost into the seal, you must now align the seatpost with the seat tube as you insert it.

4.2 Insert the seatpost to the depth you need. Make sure to respect the minimum and maximum depth markings indicated on the seatpost.

4.3 Using the black torque wrench supplied, tighten the seatpost clamp to 5 Nm. When the screw is tightened enough, the metal part of the torque wrench will move and touch the plastic casing.

4.4 Fit the rubber plug onto the seatpost clamp bolt.

5. Final checks before you ride



Install your pedals as per the manufacturer’s instructions

Check the bike’s nuts and bolts are all properly tightened to the correct Nm value.

Test your brakes by spinning the wheels and squeeze the front and rear brakes independently of each other. The brakes should engage before the lever reaches the handlebars.

Pump up your tyres to the pressure stated on the sidewall of the tyre
