Tools needed to re-assemble Giant Cypress bike
#1
Hi everyone. I am new here and to cycling in general. I got myself a Giant Cypress (2013, I believe) bike in Arizona. After two years, I needed to move to Atlanta, GA so I had my friendly local bike shop box up my bike and had it shipped away. Here in Atlanta, I don't have a car yet and the days are pretty hectic so I haven't had the time to hit up a local bike shop to have my bike re-assembled.

I'd like to do it myself if possible and I'd like to know what tools are needed to re-assemble the bike? I currently have an adjustable wrench, a hex wrench set, and all sorts of Phillips and flathead screwdrivers.

Any other tips or advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

Did they just turn the handlebars sideways, remove the pedals and the front Wheel? That can be fixed with a 6" or 8" crescent wrench I suspect? The left pedal has reverse threads and is usually maked L. We would need a pic to see how much was removed?

Mostly metric allen wrenches, pedal wrench or one that will fit. If packed by a shop, it should just be a matter of putting on pedals, handlebar/stem. and airing up the tires.
If the used bike needed anything before being packed up, it will still need those things done.
There are two kinds of people in the world, "Those who help themselves to people, and those who help people!"

Okay, I plan to purchase a 15mm pedal wrench and an adjustable wrench and hope that is all I need to put this together. I'm moving in my apartment now so it is a bit of a mess and once I get time to put my bike together, I'll let y'all know how it goes.
