I'm getting a bike (single speed) in the mail and it needs the following parts assembled:
• Front Wheel & Quick Release Skewer;
• Seat/seat post set;
• Connection of front brake cables;
• Adjustment of brakes, derailleurs
Sounds like it shouldn't be too tough, but I'm a complete newbie when it comes to this stuff. The most I've ever done is remove and replace the front wheel (yup! that basic!), and I certainly don't want to put it together the wrong way.
Will most bike shops assemble a bike that isn't bought in their shop ? If so, what would you imagine the average price for something like this to be? (I'm in NYC if that helps).
Sadly, none of my friends are bike-savvy enough to help, so I'm either left to my own devices (this forum, youtube, etc.) or maybe I should play the safe bet and have a pro do it.
What do you guys/girls think? Is something like this tricky, or do you think with some time, patience and help from the internets, I could figure it out on my own?
