Self Assembly Option
The self assembly of the Mate X is relatively simple and comes complete with step by step instructions you can view on your smart device by scanning the QR code on box for your bike. In the self assembly you will be required to install the front wheel, handlebar, one pedal and ensure that the bolts are tightened and gears are working correctly before use. Please see the link below for the "how to videos" giving an in-depth and detailed overview of the build procedure.
At matebike.uk we understand that not everyone is comfortable assembling their own bike. For this reason we can provide a pre-assembly service for you. Our service partners, handlebars (www.handlebars.io) will build, test and safety check the bike before it is dispatched to you. This hassle free service means that when you get your bike out of the box, all you will need to do is unfold the handlebar column (one click mechanism) and unfold the pedals (one click mechanism) and away you go. Our trained mechanics will also charge your battery as well to ensure you can get a full ride straight out of the box. As part of this service, your bike will also be safety checked as follows:
