    New Bike Delivery Checklist?

    My new ride is due to arrive at LBS this week and I'll go in for fitting once they build it.
    14 anthem 27.5 1

    Trying to form a list of things to cover/ask before riding away.

    What should I make sure is done for thee build?
    Have tech check tension on pre-built wheels

    For the fitting?
    Get positioned on bike
    Setup suspension
    Adjust cockpit

    New to this so feel free to impart knowledge.
    Cheers,

    Van G

    The wheels should be fine. Your LBS should help you do the rest when you pick it up if you aren't sure. Go for a ride before determining what to do with the cockpit, stem etc.

    Do not assume the wheels will be fine, it's easy to check for uneven tensioning. Forks have been known to have been shipped with insufficient oil (there are acutally instances where they've been shipped dry)...I always change the oil in new forks to be sure.
