a) You will need - allen keys, tape measure and plumb-bob (or computer mouse as alternative).
b) Measure on old bike which has comfortable set-up:
1- Saddle to middle of BB.
2 - Distance between vertical drop from nose of saddle to centre of BB.

4 - Top of stem to middle of front wheel.
d) Change angle/position of controls to suit your hand size and preferences.
