Tip: Use the left
/ right arrow keys
Our bike has a regular seat post, but a pivotal seat and post combo is quite common these days. The angle you have it depends on personal preference, but it’s best not to feel like you’re falling off the back when you do sit on the saddle. If you can adjust the height of the seat post, see what works best for you height-wise.
Remove the stem bolts and place the bars into position, tighten up the bolts at opposing corners, as shown. Don’t worry too much about bar positioning just yet, we’ll come back to that later.
Flip the bike upside down and place the front wheel in the dropouts. Make sure the cone nuts (the bolts that keep the wheel axle tight) are secure and don’t have any play. If you’re running pegs, you’ll need a socket set to tighten up the peg side. Either way, fix the wheel in the dropouts until the wheel is safely secure.
The only tricky thing you’ll need to remember about attaching your pedals is that the threads are reversed. This means you’ll tighten them in the opposite direction then you normally would. The reason being that they won’t come loose when you pedal. Your new pedals should have a, ‘R’ and a, ‘L’ stamped on the end of the axle that’ll make it even clearer for you.
