How it pays to buy a flat-pack bike and arrange a CAN home assembly.
What you should know about bikes delivered flat packed in boxes
If you’ve ordered a new bike from the internet or mail order then it may arrive flat packed in a box, to save on storage and delivery costs.
Bikes like this have been put together in a factory and have not yet been assembled and set up for their first use. Some retailers recommend that you have your bike properly assembled by a professional mechanic. The New Bike Assembly and Set Up service from CAN Cycle Care covers all the necessary steps in our 31 point checklist to ensure that your new bike is safe and roadworthy.
If you haven’t got the time or the tools to assemble and set up your new new bike yourself, then CAN Cycle Care can sort it all out for you.
