PLEASE READ EVERYTHING
Section 1: A Few Reminders
- Do not make any adjustments to your Bottom Bracket Cups. The torque sensor is located inside of the bottom bracket. Adjusting the cups without taking proper steps could damage the torque sensor permanently. Please contact us if you need to service or adjust your bottom bracket.

- Make sure you crank arms are installed 180° from each other.
- The left pedal must go on the left. It is reverse thread, to tighten it, you must properly align it and then rotate it counter clock wise. Counter clockwise to tighten.
- The right pedal must go on the right. It has a standard thread. Rotate clockwise to tighten.
- Make sure your fork is on correctly and not backwards (brake caliper and rotor goes on the left side of the bike).
- Wire and cable routing is important, please compare yours to the video.
- You may need to flip (left to right, right to left, front to back, back to front) the handlebars before installing.
- Do not squeeze brake levers before brakes are installed.
- Before you install the front wheel, remove the plastic spacer from the front brake caliper, it is in between the brake pads. This is can be used anytime you remove the front wheel, so save it.
- Do not touch the brake rotors with your fingers. The oil can contaminate them and cause them to be noisy when used.
Section 2: Headset, Fork, Top Cap - If you are not familiar with installing this or not familiar with bicycle part names, it may be best to have it assembled by a bike shop. Please watch video carefully.
- Carefully install fork fully, make sure it is seated well with the bottom of the head tube. Only the crown race should be on the fork steerer tube at this time.
- Insert compression ring around fork steerer tube.
- Slide it down, the lip of the compression ring will insert just inside of the bearing when the fork steerer tube is properly centered. This make take some adjustment to get it to sit just right.
- Next place the cone spacer or conical spacer on. Make sure the plastic/ring or dust cover is also installed with this. It should fit right on this spacer.
- Add remaining spacers on steerer tube.
- Put stem on on steerer tube (but do not tighten bolts yet!). Are you handle bars on correct? Are the wires and cables routed properly?
- Insert top cap and bolt, carefully tighten it top cap bolt as shown in the video.
- Now you can tighten bolts on stem where it connects to steerer tube. Please be careful and slowly tighten in a criss cross pattern. Do not over tighten or you may strip the stem.
- Check to make sure, there is no play in the fork. That the it is well seated at the bottom of the head tube and the top of the head tube.
Section 3 (see first video below): Chainring, Splined BB tool, and Crank Arms
If unsure, do not install your crank arms. To remove your crank arms after installing it will require a crank puller. The chainring has been removed for shipping on new generations. To install the chainring & crank arm the following tools are needed.
A BBT-22 tool, this tool has 20 splines despite the BBT-22 name or spec. This tool will be shipped with your bike. You will need an adjustable wrench or large socket to use it.
An 8mm hex wrench is also needed
It should be tightened to approximately 36N.m. No less than 35N.m
This lock ring is reverse threaded.
Section 4: Assembly Complete? Now is a great time to tune your ebike:
- Tune your derailleur. Failure to do this may cause damage to your rear wheel, power cable, derailleur, and derailleur hanger.
- Make sure your brakes are well adjusted and tuned.
- Are your cables and wires routed well?
