Build Policy

On arrival: Full bikes will need only minor assembly: front wheel mounted, pedals screwed in, seatpost reinstalled, stem clamped back down. Complete instructions are included and our mechanics are only a phone call away for any questions: (503) 699-8665. If you wish to bring the bike to a local shop for the minor final assembly or a checkup that service will not be covered by Lakeside Bicycles. Framesets are fully machined and aligned before shipping so they are nearly ready to build up. However, jostling during shipping can create minor changes in frame alignment or even machining. Details such as dropout and hanger alignment or bottom bracket threading should be re-gauged before buildup. Minor machining and alignment are not covered by Lakeside Bicycles as this is considered a normal part of buildup. More serious shipping damage should be immediately reported to Lakeside Bicycles so a claim and resolution with the shipping company can be promptly arranged. If your mechanic is not able to complete a part installation then our mechanics are ready to complete the task, but shipping is not covered in either direction if our mechanics are able to properly finish the task. Any alignment issues must be addressed by your mechanic with actual measured discrepancies; eyeball readings and 'it felt out of wack' are not covered; you may as well include pictures since they will usually be requested.

Special Instructions from Customer 

All special instructions must be included with your actual order. During the ordering process the "Special Instructions" field provides plenty of space for you to enter all special instructions. As we receive hundreds of emails every week, even special instructions that have previously been discussed with us must be reiterated at the time of your order. Lakeside Bicycles cannot be held responsible for special requests unless they are delivered to us in conjunction with the actual order.
