One of the best aspects of ordering a Guardian bike is how easy it is to setup the bike. No bicycle mechanic background is needed!
Like all bicycle brands, we receive bikes to our warehouse "85% assembled". To ensure each Guardian is setup safely for your child, professional mechanics here in the USA assemble and inspect every bike. They setup the brakes, gears, seatpost, seat, front wheel (20 inch bikes), check every nut and bolt, and put a beautiful shine on the bike.
20in bikes arrive 99% assembled = you will just need to install the pedals and handlebar.
24 inch bikes arrive 95% assembled = you will only need to install the pedals, handlebars, and front wheel.
We include high quality tools and have detailed instruction videos to make setup a breeze. If you have ever assembled anything from Ikea, you've got this no problem!
Any orders placed before 12:00pm PST, will go out the same day. Any orders after 12:00pm PST, will go out the next day. Once the order is placed with Fedex, your bike will be delivered within one week.
Tracking information will be emailed to you once the bicycle has been shipped out.
Great question! Yes, we offer an option at checkout to finance the bike. This is allows you to spread out the payments over 4 months as low as $84/month. When you get to the shopping cart page, checkout with Partial.ly.
Great question! The simple explanation... With SureStop, the front brake will only engage when there is weight over the rear tire and the bicycle is moving forward. This is what makes SureStop so safe.
The overly technical explanation... Read steps 1,2,3 at this link http://www.surestop.bike/technology.html. As our patented brake pad makes contact with the rim, the force of the rear wheel moving forward slides the brake pad forward and engages the front brake. This means the bicycle needs to be moving forward for the front brake to engage. The technology prevents head-over-handlebar accidents because once the rear wheel starts to become unweighted (i.e. as the child's weight shifts forward), the amount of front brake is reduced.
