Hi All.

Just ordered a New Giant Anthem, is it a case of get it out of the box set the suspension sag and away to go, or is it better to take things apart and grease things up, spindles, linkages etc.

Any advise would be fantastic.

    It won't need greasing.

    You'll need to fit the wheels and pedals and align the bars, do a basic bolt tightness check on ALL bolts and check the gear indexing front and rear. Check tyre pressures and then set sag before going for a local try out ride.
