When you buy a new pushbike, it will typically come in a box ready to be assembled. The cycles that you see in stores are for display purposes only. Although putting bikes together is hardly rocket science, you would be well advised to get a professional to put one together for you if you’ve just splashed out on a new one. If you bought your bike from a cycle store, it will be more than likely that one of its employees will be able to do this for you.
If you’ve ordered your wheels online, it probably won’t be too much of a bother for you to find a local bike store that takes care of assembly. It shouldn’t cost you too much, and it’s important that you make sure your bike is roadworthy before you start riding it. If you make a hash of putting it together yourself, you could face doing yourself a nasty injury should anything go wrong while you’re riding.
It will be a good idea to do some research into the person or company that’s going to be putting your bike together for you to make sure they know what they’re doing. Ask around friends and family, read online reviews or simply ask about their background and qualifications directly.
If you’re unfortunate to pay somebody who doesn’t know what they’re doing to put your bike together and subsequently suffer an injury that was not your fault as a result of a mistake they made, you might be able to use the services of a top-class solicitors in Little Gransden to take action against them.
