Our bikes are state of the art and they’re simple to set up! In case you’ve never done it before, there are 3 places where you can adjust your bike:
1) Seat height - about hip height when you are standing next to your bike.
2) Seat position - place your elbow on the front of your seat and your fingertips should just reach the handlebars, adjust to fit.
3) Handlebar Height - slightly below your seat height unless you have lower back concerns then make it a little higher than you seat for comfort.
