**It is always recommend that you have your bike assembled by a professional.**

You will need a few tools to assemble your new cruiser. You will need a Phillips head screw driver, an Alan key with variable sizes (5 and 6), tire pump, scissors, a 15mm wrench and a 14mm wrench (Fig. 1).

It is best to have everything, including tools, ready before you begin. Your bike will be tightly sealed and packaged (this is to prevent shipping damage), so you will need to be careful when removing it from the box. The wheels, handlebars, pedals, and seat post will be all be zip tied together (this is to keep them from being scratched in transit). The seat and owners manual will be in the box along with all other accessories. (See Fig. 2).

The wheel will be tied to the frame, so you will need to cut that tie, as well as all 2WheelBikes Cruiser!2WheelBikes Cruiser!

To begin assembly, you will need to attach the seat post to your seat, and then the seat to your cruiser. Drop the post into the seat post hole located on the bottom of the seat and tighten with a 14mm wrench. (See Fig. 4). After the seat post is tightened on to the seat, you will have to flip over the seat/post unit and insert it into the frame hole. After finding the desired height of your seat (which will vary by the height and comfort level of the rider) you will use the Alan key to tighten the attached screw and securely fasten the seat to your cruiser. (#5 hex key for seat post) (See Fig. 5). Make surer it is securely tightened to avoid the seat moving while riding.

To figure out proper seat height: When sitting on the seat in riding position, the knee should be slightly bent while the ball of the foot is resting on the pedal at its lowest position.

The seat angle can be altered by loosening the bolt under the seat and tilting the seat up or down to your liking. Make sure after finding desired seat angle the bolt is securely tightened to ensure your seat will not move during riding.

From there, you will need to install the handlebars. First loosen the top stem bolt by turning the stem of the handlebars counter clockwise no more than 3 times. The handlebars will fit into the hole at the top of the fork quite easily. Insert stem to the desired height (you may need to do this more than once to accommodate a new rider's height). There will be a mark on the stem-do not raise the handlebars above this mark for safety reasons! After deciding on the height that is most comfortable for the rider, you will need to tighten the bolt on top of the handlebars using an Alan wrench (#6 hex key for handlebars). (See Fig. 6).

(See Fig. 7) Finally, tighten the bolt to secure the angle you can move on to the next step.

If your bike comes with fenders, now is the time to install them. Flip the bike upside down so it rests on the seat and the handle bars. Place the front fender in between the front fork so that the notch on the fender is behind the fork, and can be fastened by the screw where the fork splits. Now screw the fender brackets on the ends of the fork with the screws attached to the fork ends. (See Fig 8)

Loosen the axle bolts so you can attach the front wheel to the axle. Loosen the bolts enough to allow the fork to slide on to the wheel. The washers should be on the outside of the axle and frame. After you have slid the wheel on to the forks, tighten the bolts by hand. Use a wrench to ensure that the bolts are securely snug and make sure both sides are equally tight. (See Fig. 9)

** Please be sure the front fork is angled forward. During packaging it is angled backwards for shipping reasons only.**

The next step is to attach the pedals. One will say "L" and one will say "R". (See Fig. 10). It is crucial that the correct pedal goes on the correct side, otherwise the pedals will lock up and not be able to be removed! The left pedal will screw on in a counter clockwise motion (backwards from normal) , and the right will screw on in a clockwise motion. It is imperative that the pedals are tight to avoid injury on the road! To ensure the pedal is secure, use a wrench to fully tighten. Now flip the bike over and put the kick stand down so your bike can stand on its own.
