As stated in the Shop page under each product, there is around 50% assembly required. Each bike takes approximately 30min for an experienced mechanic.

Yes, all of our frames use 44mm Straight Head Tubes. That means that you can use any and all steer tubes styles and sizes. When the Headset is provided with the frame, it is for tapered steer tube forks.

BB shell is 100mm Threaded.
You need a 190/197mm rear spacing crank with a minimum 100mm clearance from the center of the BB to the inside clearance dimension of the crank arms. Minimum Q Factor is 220mm.
We recommend any of these Race Face 190/197mm cranks: Next SL, Next R, Turbine, Aeffect and Ride. Each of these crank will come with 2 x 11mm spacers.
SRAM cranks, even though 190/197mm DO NOT FIT. The Q Factor is too low and therefore the crank arms will not clear the stays.
