Fit & Assembly
We take pride in fitting people to their bikes and will work to make your new bike comfortable and efficient.
We are here to help ensure proper fit on the bike. All test rides receive a floor sizing to determine frame size, saddle position and bar height. Further fit work is included to make more advanced adjustments and swap fit-related components like stems, handlebars and saddles.
Every new bike assembled at Freeze Thaw Cycles is built to the highest standard with expert care. Bikes arrive to us mostly assembled, but we do not simply finish the job and send it out the door. Instead, new bikes from boxes are stripped down to the bare frame and treated with our extensive collection of frame-preparation tools.
Facing of the headtube, fork crown race, disc brake mounts and BB shell as well as BB shell thread chasing are performed on all bikes to ensure maximum performance. Even our children’s bikes get this treatment which serves as in-house quality control and helps avoid future issues. The benefits of this prep work are less future creaks and things coming loose or getting stuck, as well as longer bearing life in the headset and bottom bracket.
This preparation is a costly and labor-intensive process that we feel every frame and fork deserves. This is included with every bike at no extra charge. Our attention to detail during assembly builds the best bike possible for you to enjoy.
We are one of few remaining shops in the country putting this effort into our assembly and we are proud of it.
