Aside from high-fiving anybody within reach, here's what you'll need to do when your Flash arrives at your door:
(Don't worry; all of this is covered in the user manual.)
Flash arrives partially assembled. You'll need to spend about 15 minutes on final assembly, using some required tools: a 15mm wrench, a Phillips screwdriver, and 4mm and 5mm Allen keys (included in your bike box).
You'll be doing things like attaching the front wheel and pedals, and tightening the handlebars. Honestly, it's not too difficult and the manual will walk you through it.
We also have a collection of assembly tutorial videos that walk you through every step.
If you have any questions during the process, just let us know.
If you're concerned about physical strength, a tech at your local bike shop can do it very quickly and easily.
Charge Before Use
Your Flash arrives in a "sleep" state, and can only be woken up by plugging it in to charge. So once your Flash is assembled and ready to ride, just plug it in to fully charge before first use (4-5 hours). This video shows you how.
Once you've assembled your bike and it's plugged in to charge, you'll need to do some initial setup with the app in order to take advantage of Flash's smart features.
After downloading the free iOS/Android app from the appropriate app store, just fire up the app and it will walk you through the one-time setup process. It takes just a few minutes to create your free account, pair your bike with your app, set your personal security PIN code, and you're all set.
