Usually, you have to install the seatpost/seat. If aluminum or steel bike, apply a thin layer of grease to the post before insertion into the seat-tube.
Then you install the stem and handlebars.
Then you slide onto the handlebars the brake levers then shifters then grips (spray inside with hairspray).
Then, install the front wheel.
Then the pedals, then make sure the crank bolt is tight and a quick check of the chainring bolts.
The cables are usually pre-cut, but I usually do a quick check before I begin my adjustments.
I then start with the front brake, adjust the shoes to align with the rim, then cable tension. I then do the same to the back wheel.
Then I adjust my front derailleur, and then the back one.
Air up the tires, recheck all bolts are tight and go for a test ride!
