Yes, but only a little bit. Before we send out bikes we first send them into our workshop where they are fully built and tested, we physically ride every single bike around our indoor test track. Once we’re happy with it we remove the front wheel, handle bars and pedals. We then re-pack the bike and the bits and send it to you. So, yes, you will need to perform some basic assembly, but no more we feel than any cyclist should be capable of.

To help keep shipping costs as low as possible for our customers we re-pack the bikes into as small a box as possible, this sometimes mean that racks and mudguards will also need to be removed before shipping.

If the amount of assembly needed is beyond your abilities we suggest either employing the services of a local shop or buying your new bike locally.
