Internet purchases of new bikes are on the increase. After all cut out a few middlemen and you are likely to save yourself a few pounds.

So you have decided to save a few pounds and purchase a bike from the internet. More often than not here is an amount of self-assembly to be done. Please remember that all fixings (nuts & bolts) must be tightened to the correct torque using a torque wrench. Too loose and the component will not hold in place, too tight and you can break a component or even the frame in the case of carbon fibre.

Here at The Velo Doctor we can complete the build of an internet purchased bike for you from the box at £35. That includes the build and a full safety check. Further after 200 miles bring the bike back to us and we will check the torque settings of all fixings for free!
