In this step, we will prepare the various parts of the bike for assembly.

First, use scissors to cut the plastic ties holding the front wheel to the rest of the bike. Remove the front wheel by sliding forward (pull upwards will not work). Put the front wheel aside for now.

You can leave the white foam tube covers and the rest of the packaging on the bike for now. We'll remove it at the end.

Important: Be careful not to cut the white cables. These are the brake and shifter cables.

Remember the small box from Step 1? You'll notice two punch-outs on one side. These will balance the bike during assembly.

With the silver front brakes face outwards, remove the black protector that is inserted into the fork and place the fork into the small box, balancing the bike.


Now we're ready to assemble your Brilliant Bicycle.
