How to build your new bike from Tredz

At Tredz Online we don’t expect all of our customers to be skilled mechanics, so finding out how to build your new bike might be something you need to know. After all, not even all of us are trained to build bikes correctly – that’s why our workshop is populated with highly experienced, Cytech trained mechanics (for those who don’t know, Cytech is the only recognised cycling industry standard qualification for cycle mechanics).

However, packing a bike into a box is pretty much impossible without taking off the pedals and turning the handlebars. These are simple to do and with the use of a 15mm spanner and 4,5 or 6mm Allen key, you should have no problem in making your bike ready to ride.

We could write an in depth post on how to get your bike ready to ride, but we thought a video would be easier for you. So, if you have a bike and are ready to build it, sit back and watch this video then go and enjoy your bike.
