How to Build Your New Bike

Assembling your new bike from MTB Monster is easy. A few small steps have been taken to package your bike safely into a box which include removing the front wheel, handlebars and pedals, we supply the tools to refit these with your bike. Please follow the steps below in order to get your bike ready for its maiden voyage.

  1. Remove the bike from the shipping box and remove the packaging. Be careful if you are using scissors that you don't touch the frame and damage the paint work.

  2. To put your handlebars on, remove the stem plate (usually held on by four bolts), and slot the bars into place centrally. Tighten the bolts using an Allen Key (provided) to the correct torque. If not specified on the stem our mechanics recommend between 5Nm and 6Nm.

  3. Next is fitting the front wheel. Remove the axle from the forks and keep it to hand. Slot the wheel into the grooves at on the fork where you have just removed the axle from, making sure the brake disc fits in between the brake pads without applying force. This step may be easier with the bike upside down resting on the saddle and handlebars. Replace the axle through the forks and the front wheel hub making sure it is hand tight. You want it to be tight enough so it doesn't come undone but not so tight that you cant undo it at a later date.

  4. The next step is adjusting the saddle height to suit yourself, setting your brake levers to suit and setting up your suspension. If you have any questions with this stage, contact our mechanics who will be more than happy to help you reach the perfect setup.

  5. To fit your pedals, we will supply either a pedal spanner or an Allen key which allow you to tighten the pedals. Take note that the left and right pedals have different threads. The pedals can be wound on by hand by back pedalling the bike and holding the pedal by the axle.

We are always on hand to help you with any of these steps and you can call our mechanics on 01254 814238 (UK) or +44 (1254) 314-238 (International)
