Still, we understand that building a bike is a process. Assembly times vary with experience. You’ll be riding in anywhere from 30 (skilled bike mechanic) to 120 minutes (no prior experience building bikes). If you’re not comfortable assembling your bike for any reason, please take it to your local bike shop for assistance. Raleigh cannot be held responsible for any damage caused by improper assembly.

This bike does not come with an assembly manual, so I cannot recommend unless you are a bike mechanic or choose the assembly option.
I am an experienced cyclist, no dummy when it comes to basic bicycle maintenance, and have had to break down and reassemble bikes for boxing up on airplanes multiple times, so when I read that this bike came 80% assembled I had no fear that I could put together the remaining 20%. Oh how wrong I was. This bike has disc brakes, which I've never encountered before, and the mechanism for the front wheel does not come not attached. Ok, again--no dummy, I can generally figure out how things go together, but the bolts on the mechanism did not align with the brazeons on the frame., and there were NO INSTRUCTIONS. I scanned the internet for information/videos, etc. for assembly of this model, and only found pdfs. There were some videos about assembling disc brakes, but they were not for make/type of brake. Finally, through one close-up shot of another brand of disc brakes, I did figure out how the mechanism is supposed to be mounted, but there were no bolts. Oh wait, yes there were, in a completely separate, unmarked package. Of course! Ok, so that done, ready to attach brake cables. Obviously easy, except it wasn't. Again, no instructions for where to thread the final portion of the cable. And even if there had been, I could not trust that what I'd accomplished would be safe to ride.. So I had to take the bike to the bike shop for a price-tag of $99, and they can't turn it around right away so I'm STILL bike-less. The whole point of this purchase was a.) I needed wheels asap (just moved, carless) and b.) I wanted a bike that was under $400. I have a feeling I will be happy with the finished product but I can't recommend purchasing this item unless you are a bike mechanic or have experience assembling disc brakes
BE WARNED - the instructions for assembly are horrible!!! Raleigh has no instructions online for assembling disc brakes that I could find. I have worked on bikes in the past so I know most of what I am doing but this is my first time assembling disc brakes and I had to watch multiple YouTube videos (from competitors like Diamondback and Schwinn) to figure this out. The parts are not labeled anywhere and the instructions and diagrams are RIDICULOUS!
I am surprised and shocked that Raleigh would put buyers through this...if you are not good with bike assembly, I would strongly recommend paying a local bike shop.
EVEN if you don't get this bike, if you commute make sure you get disc brakes for that EXTRA stopping power :) It is essential!
Tips: It's relatively easy to put this bike together. Assembly took like 15 - 20 mins but tuning... took me 3 days (because I didn't know what I was doing). if you know how to assemble and tune bikes you should be good, but if you don't I would recommend taking it to a shop to have the derailleurs and brakes tuned for safety and clean shifting.
I decided on putting this bike together all on my own, because I like to learn how things work from the top down and already had a little bike maintenance experience. The process is pretty straight forward, but just note that you will probably need to do some slight adjustments to the brake calipers and derailleur to get everything running smoothly. These systems are a little more complicated than putting on the steering column, for instance, but a few tutorials and if you're the kind of person who feels confident with mechanics, you'll get it.
After assembly and adjusting the aforementioned parts, I haven't had any other adjustments since then. I've been keeping up with basic maintenance, but really it's just been running smoothly.
The bike feels really light, definitely heavier than some road bikes I've ridden, but a feather compared to mountain bikes I've owned. It feels speedy on the commute through town, it brakes well (even in the few times I've ridden in the rain) and there are plenty of gears to go up some relatively steep hills that I have on my commute.
I originally ordered a specialized because I was more familiar with the brand, but after a order mistake and the price going back up, I decided to try Raleigh. I haven't been disappointed one bit!
