    Slide on to bars. Do up bolts.

    That is is really - make sure they are undone enough so that they can slide on, and be careful with the small bolts.

    Are the bolts allen key types?

    Yep, small ones, 2.5 mm or something like that. Don't over tighten them, it's easy to round out the bolt heads. Use a decent allen key.
    It's easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission.

    I've bought a new bike....ouch - result
    Can I buy a new bike?...No - no result
