​How will you deliver my bike and will it need to be assembled?

There are several options for bike delivery:​

  1. Personal collection from the Kolos dealer​
  2. Free of charge delivery in the Czech Republic: Bikes are dispatched in large 200x130x25cm boxes and delivered by Toptrans. Each bike is always completely assembled and adjusted. The only parts you need to fit yourself are the pedals and the front cargo rack (if ordered). You will need to release the handlebars and turn them in the direction of travel as well as adjust the seat height. Everything else is done.
  3. Delivery by our technician: Upon delivery by our technician, the bike is adjusted to the height of the rider and includes full instructions for use by the technician. The technician also carries a mobile payment terminal to enable direct card payment upon delivery. This service is charged according to the delivery distance. You can see how much you will pay by entering your postcode when placing an order at the end of the bike configuration section.
