Before you take anything apart, inspect closely to see if the "bumping" and "clicking" is from the pedals, cranks, chain, bottom bracket, etc. Look up videos on how to take off three-piece cranks, preferably for 8-spline cranks. And you should have some grease of some sort, so clean everything and re-grease. That's about it. For your front hub, just get 2 adjustable wrenches and take off any side cone nut, then finger tighten and then re-install your wheel making sure to be careful that the cone nut doesn't move around as you tighten the wheel.

If purchased from a local shop, I suggest bringing it back and have them correct everything for you.

Would they do it if they put the bike together for me?

yes, but they might charge you a few bux depending on the shop's policy. As an old shop mechanic, we enjoyed it when someone would say, "something wrong with it, but I need to learn how to work on it myself"... this way they go through it real quick, give you a diagnosis & clearly show you why/how to fix it.

This way we could sell you tools and get get ya real hooked in as a customer lol. They could avoid the hassle of fixing little issues any time you have them & prolly sell you a cone wrench to boot
