Curious about the RoadBikeOutlet Pro Tune service?
When you purchase a bike from us, as you order you may see the option to include the Pro Tune.
If you choose the Pro Tune service, you will receive the benefit of having one of our certified bicycle mechanics fully inspect, assemble and tune your bicycle to insure proper operation. We are an authorized dealer of Vilano Bikes so use of this service will validate your warranty coverage.
Without this service you would receive the bike dealer ready, in the factory packaging, and 90% assembled. Dealer ready means that the bikes will require tuning of the front and rear derailleurs, adjusting the brakes and truing the wheels. Improper assembly voids warranty on the bike so if you decide to opt out of this service you will need to take your bike to an authorized dealer for assembly.
Our Pro Tune service includes:
- Completely assemble the bicycle checking the alignment of the frame and fork
- Add additional lubrication
- Align and adjust the derailleurs
- Grease the pedal threads
- Align and tighten the crank sprockets and arms
- Position the saddle level and center it on the seat post
- Attach the brakes and adjust them correctly
- Assemble the handlebars
- True the wheels
Our qualified tech will then disassemble the bicycle just enough to fit it back into the shipping box, add more packing protection, and secure all movable parts to prevent any damage that might occur during transit.
Reassembly typically takes our customers only 10 to 15 minutes. See the above video, which shows the remaining few items that you need to finish in order to ride.
You will need to attach the pedals, saddle, front wheel, front brake and the handlebars. That's it!
The left pedal screws on counterclockwise as if you're sitting on the bike. The right screws on clockwise as if you're sitting on the bike. Use lease hand tighten carefully. Once you are sure you did not cross thread the pedals, and after they are attached firmly, you can tighten. Be careful as threaded parts are not covered under warranty.
Please always ride safely and carefully. It is a great idea to take your bike to your local bike mechanic for final sizing and a safety check. Review the owner's manual, be aware of all safety precautions, and maintain your bike regularly. Use your helmet and safety gear, be conscious of traffic, and enjoy!
