You probably know this already, but as a Guerrilla Gravity owner, you’re 110% more awesome than the average mountain biker. Below details everything you need to keep your bike running strong of years upon years.
Your new bike will arrive in two separate boxes, one for the frame and the other for the wheels. Our rockstar mechanics have already tuned up your shifting, shortened your brake hoses, cut your fork steerer, and set your tires up tubeless. This all adds up to a streamlined assembly process that you can complete with a small handful of tools and basic mechanical skills. Seriously, if you’ve installed pedals on your bike, you’ll be fine. Tools required:
Allen wrenches: 3, 4, 5, 6 mm
T25 torx wrench for SRAM brakes
1. Unbox your frame and mount it in a bike stand
2. Bolt the rear derailleur to the hanger, tighten the bolt snug with your 5 mm wrench but no need to overdo it.
3. Install your rear wheel by tightening the rear thru-axle with a 5 mm wrench
4. Install your front wheel with the included axle. Bolt-on axles normally use a 6 mm wrench.
5. Remove your handlebar and chain from the wheel box
6. Install the chain and master link. Route the chain over the chainring, over and around the back of the cassette, over the top of the upper jockey wheel towards the front of the bike, around the backside of the lower jockey wheel, and then forward towards the chainring. Join the two ends of the chain with the provided master link. The master link might be tight to snap together, you can try holding the rear brake and putting some leverage on the crank to pop it into place.
7. Install the handlebar. You’ll first need to remove the faceplate of the stem using your 4 mm wrench. Place the handlebar in the stem groove and then tighten the top two bolts all the way, then install the lower two bolts and torque them to 5 Nm, or roughly as tight as you can turn a 4 mm wrench using the skinny end of the wrench as a lever with two fingers.
8. Install your brakes. SRAM brakes will require a T25 torx wrench.
9. Install your dropper remote to the left side of the handlebar.
10. Install your shifter onto the right side of handlebar
11. Slide your lock-on grips over the bars and tighten the clamp with a 3 mm wrench.
12. Hop on and give the brakes a quick bed in. Here is how.
13. Set the sag. GG bikes are designed to be run with 20% fork sag and 30% shock sag for the best ride qualities. For a more in-depth read about sag concepts, please read this article.
14. Go get dirty on your favorite trail!
