The Bike Stand's Assembly


Come and Experience The Difference.


This is our normal assembly on all of our bikes. What is so good about telling you this is that you can see for yourself. It is so easy to pull the front wheel out of a bike and see if the bearings run smooth or are they ruff from not being adjusted. You can also take the top cap off and look for grease on the threads. What is nice about these is it is easy to do and does not change any of the adjustments on the bike.

The assembly is one of the most important aspects of a bike. More important then the brand or even parts on the bike. When an assembly is done on a bike at The Bike Stand which ever it is, a low end mountain bike or a high end road bike the same attention to detail is the number one priority. As a consumer you can see the difference for yourself. Just go in to any bike shop and ask to see how a quick release works on a bike ask on a bike in the 3 to 4 hundred price range that you pick out and when they take the wheel off ask to see the wheel then just turn the axle on the hub. It is that simple. If it feels gritty the hub was not adjusted if a thing as simple as that is not done do you think any thing else will be?
