Please be aware that this bike is not a PRO bike by any stretch of the imagination however, it is a great first BMX/Freestyler styled for a kid that is really just getting into riding around the neighborhood, parks, and maybe a few light tricks. I taught my 9 year old son to ride on his and he loves it. The bike comes mostly assembled with just the front wheel, pedals, and handle bars not attached. If you are experienced with BMX bike assembly, you will have no problems. I suggest you have open end wrenches, a flat bladed screw driver, a medium phillips screwdriver, a large adjustable wrench, and a set of allen wrenches to completely assemble and adjust to the riders height. You *will* have to make minor brake adjustments and set the brake pads so if you aren't familiar with bmx bike hand brakes, you'll need to look up how to properly adjust them. And, as is the case with any ordered bike from a retail chain, I highly recommend that you take the time to grease all bearings in the down tube (where the handle bars are mounted to the frame) and the Bottom Bracket (the area where crank that the pedals are attached through goes through the frame) as well as properly lubricate the chain. If you aren't well versed in bike maintenance, just hop on youtube. There are several great how to's on all of this stuff. I'd start with BikeManforU on youtube. Or, if you don't have the time or tools, visit your local bike shop and they will happily take care of it for you. Good luck and happy biking!
