"Hi, Help, please!
I bought my son a BMX for Xmas, and he doesn’t know about it.
Having unboxed it, there aren’t really any instructions on putting it together. There’s not much to do, but I don’t really want to get it wrong.
Are you able to come round in the next couple of days and put it together? Sorry, it’s short notice"

Enjoy riding your new bicycle. Martin Cycle Tech UK
