HANDLE BAR ATTACHMENT:
- Clip the zip ties that hold the front wheel and the handle bar assembly to the fork and frame. Remove the protective cardboard tubing, plastic wrapping and foam sheeting from the bike and handle bar assembly.
- IMPORTANT – FORK POSITION:
- Prior to attaching the handle bars you need to position the fork and stem in the correct position. The fork has a slight angle away from the bike and the front brake is on the left side of the fork as seen by the bike operator when it is in the correct position.
- If it looks like the fork is angled back towards the rear of the bike and the front brake is on the bike operators right side, then the fork needs to be rotated 180 degrees so the fork is angle away from the rear of the bike and the front brake caliper unit is on the Left side when you are riding the bike.
- IMPORTANT – STEM POSITION:
- With the included Allen wrenches loosen the 3 Allen screws that hold the stem to the top of the fork.
- Position the stem with the face plate forward toward the front of the bike.
- Tighten the Stem on the top tube of the fork. There is a 5mm screw on the circular cap on the top of the stem. loosen this cap and the 2 Allen screws on the side of the handle bar stem shaft.
IMPORTANT: HANDLEBAR POSITION:
- Using the 4mm wrench remove all 4 forward facing screws and the face plate from the stem.
- Center the handle bars (L/R) on the stem and rotate the bar into a position where the brake angle seems comfortable to you.
- Reattach the stem face plate using the 4mm allen screws.
IMPORTANT: The thumb throttle will be on the bike riders Right side and the front disc brake will be on the bike riders left side of the fork when both Fork and Stem/Bars are in the correct position.
- Tighten the grips and the brake lever units using the Allen Keys. The allen bolts for brake lever units and the handle grips on the on the under side of handle bar.
- Tighten the Thumb Throttle Allen screw also.
ALIGNMENT OF HANDLE BARS / STEM and FRONT WHEEL:
- Loosen the yellow circular Stem Cap with the 5mm Allen wrench.
- Loosen the 2 screws on the sides of the stem.
- Standing with your legs straddling the front wheel and looking towards the handle bars align the handle bars and stem with the front wheel.
- Once wheel/stem/bar alignment is achieved, tighten the top stem cap (5mm) and the 2 side 4mm Allen Screws found on the stem post to secure it on the upper tube of the fork.
FRONT WHEEL ATTACHMENT:
- IMPORTANT: A 15mm open ended wrench is needed to tighten the wheel nuts.
- Rotate the front axle nuts until they are approx half way off the threaded axle. This will allow for any easier attachment to the front fork.
- Carefully place the front wheel in the front fork drop out slots so the wheels’ brake disc aligns with disc brake unit. The break unit is on the left side of the bike rider when it is in the correct position.
- Alternate tightening the Left side and Right side nuts onto the fork tabs so as to keep the wheel centered on the fork and the wheels disc aligned in the brake calipers.
- Finish tightening the wheel nuts using the 15mm wrench.
FRONT BRAKE ATTACHMENT:
- Loosen the 5mm nut on the cable stop at the front brake activation arm. Push about an inch of slack upward the Bike riders Left lever.
- Pull back the lever allowing the ferrel basket to swing out.
- Using the created slack from loosing the cable clamp, take the end of the cable with the cylindrical ferrel and place the ferrel in the basket on the brake lever and swing the basket into the brake lever housing while pulling the cable through the slot in the front of the lever housing.
- Then tuck the cable along the front slot in the Brake Levers and place the end of the cable jacket into the silver tube at the edge of the brake cable.
- Rotate the silver collar on the slotted tube to lock the cable into place.
- On the front brake caliper, pull the created slack out of cable and tighten it down with the 5mm Allen wrench to secure the brake cable on the brake actuator arm.
- Please refer to the manufactures web site for details on the proper adjustment of the TekTro disc Brake systems. http:// www.tektro.com
CABLE MANAGEMENT: IMPORTANT: The throttle controller is designed to cut the power to the motor if the brake is applied. It is critical to keep the cables in their proper place and away from the brake levers to insure the proper function of the bike.
- Use the small black plastic clips on the cables to secure the cables in place to insure the cables are not causing the throttle controller to stop the power flow to the motor.
- Refer to the video update for clip positions.
Cable Management for Front Handlebars
- IMPORTANT: You will need a 15mm wrench (not included) to tighten the pedals onto the crank arms.
- IMPORTANT: The pedals are marked on the threaded end with “L” and “R”.
- The pedal marked with an “R” on the threaded end is to be attached to the bike riders Right pedal crank arm. “L” is marked on the end of the riders left pedal. Please note it is easier to thread the pedal onto the crank when it is in the higher position.
- The Right pedal will be rotated clockwise to tighten onto the crank arms and the Left pedal gets rotated counterclockwise onto the crank to attach and tighten.
- Tighten both pedals with the 15mm open ended wrench.
SEAT (Assembly) ATTACHMENT: (Watch video for red reflector attachment directions)
- Remove the cardboard and packing materials the seat.
- Open the yellow anodized lever slide the seat post into the seat tube.
- Position seat for the riders comfort and rotate the seat so it is centered over the frame.
- Tighten the seat clamp back down by moving the lever back to the closed position. The knurled nob on the side opposite the lever may need to be rotated clockwise a small amount to insure the clamp is tight on the seat post.
- On the Left side of the bike, open the battery door by locating the latching toggle bolt on the upper right hand corner of the house. Rotate the toggle counter clockwise to loosen it and open the battery box door.
- IMPORTANT: Battery Holder Keys.- the keys zipped tied to the silver throttle controller in the battery box are needed to attach and release the battery from the battery holder on the bike. Do not loose these. Carefully clip the plastic zip tie and place a key in the left side upper slot of the battery holder.
- With the Battery’s power switch in the “OFF” position, align base of the charged battery into the battery holder and pivot it down and into the holder into the holder until it rests with the top of the battery just off the holder. This is a snug fit but it is easier with each additional effort.
- Rotate the key at the top of the holder while pressing down on the battery to lock the battery into position on the bike.
