Pat removes the plastic caps from the front axle and discards them, then places the metal capnut on one end of the axle and taps it into place with a hammer, which takes about two minutes, on average. He then slides the uncapped end of the axle through one of the front wheels, the holes in the body and the other wheel, then taps the second capnut in place with the hammer and tugs to make sure the axle and wheels are secure. This step takes three minutes.
After Pat’s work is completed, Kate begins the rear wheel assembly, first placing one pedal on the pedal crank, positioning a washer in the pedal slot, and driving the pedal crank through the washer until it is securely fit within the pedal, then pulls on it to make sure it is secure. This takes Kate two minutes. She then slides the crank through a wheel insert, which positions the crank securely, and the rear wheel, then slides on the remaining insert and positions the second pedal. This takes another two minutes.
Lisa completes the assembly by inserting the handlebar post through the hole in the body of the elTACOBIKE, inserting two screws, one through the front and one through the back, then tightening them. She finally places the preassembled metal taco box-container in the front frame between the wheels. This takes, on average, three minutes.
