I purchased a Pace 500 on the weekend and within a couple of days the big box was here. Prior to its arrival I reviewed the instructions and the video available to get an idea what would be required.
The assembly followed along pretty closely to the video. As a plus, a small hex wrench and a pedal wrench were included in the box. I had plenty of tools anyway.
The only glitches in the assembly was the derailleur hanger, which was shown as already installed in the pics and video. In my case there were two hangers in the box but neither was installed.
Unfortunately, I noticed when I was attempting to mount the rear wheel. Also don’t forget to mount the black plastic plug in the handlebar stem. I don’t think it is mentioned and looking at other people’s pictures online, it is often missing.
Had to adjust cables but this is to be expected. But once together, zoom, off it went. I think it is a great value.
