A Vilano bike will arrive factory direct and requires an overall tuning and a safety inspection to ensure it is ready and safe to ride. This can be done at a local certified bike shop.
This bike is about 90% assembled. The only items you will have to install are the front wheel, handlebars, seat/seat post and pedals. All factory installed parts should be inspected and adjusted as necessary.
This bike is not hard to assemble, but it does require particular tools to complete the job at hand. Listed below are the tools needed to complete the build process.
4-5-6 mm Allen keys
bottom bracket sockets and wrench

Be very careful with the pedals. There is a right and left pedal, and they are put on clockwise (right) and counterclockwise (left). It is very easy to strip the threads if the pedals are put on incorrectly and forced. Anything threaded is not covered under warranty by Vilano.
*Please note: Even though the bike requires little assembly, as it is a factory direct bike we would highly advise you to take it to a local bike shop to have them true the wheels, tighten the brakes, etc. and make sure any modifications are done safely. In addition, it is a good idea to bring your bike to the shop for a tune up after a few rides, and then for annual check ups.
