Assembling with the help of the video guide is the recommended method to reduce questions or issues with assembly.
Preassembly tips and advice
- If you are uncomfortable with bike mechanics, it is best to have it assembled by a bike shop or expert.
- Carefully remove ONLY the packing zip ties, do not cut any wires, cables, or zip ties that are used to route wires.
- There is a plastic spacer supporting the front brake caliper between the brake pad area. Note that squeezing the brake lever without the spacer or bike rotor installed will clamp the pistons closed. It is recommended to save the spacer to use anytime you remove the front wheel.
- Avoid touching the brake rotors with your fingers. The natural oil present on your hands will contaminate the rotors, reduce braking efficacy and create a loud whining pitch when braking.
- Apply grease to the pedal threads and seat post before installation
- Make sure your fork is not backwards. The brake caliper and rotor should be on the left (in rider orientation)
- Do not overtighten your display bracket. Tightening at angled sections of the handlebars reduces surface area contact and the clamp may crack or break
Left Pedal- The left pedal is reverse threaded and must be installed on the left side of the bike (without chainring). To install it, properly align in the left crank insert and rotate counterclockwise by hand. If threaded correctly, it will not require any force to hand tighten. Once hand tight, use a wrench on the flat edge of the pedal insert to tighten fully.
Right Pedal- The right pedal is standard threaded and must be installed on the right side of the bike (with chainring). To install it, properly align in the left crank insert and rotate counterclockwise by hand. If threaded correctly, it will not require any force to hand tighten. Once hand tight, use a wrench on the flat edge of the pedal insert to tighten fully.
Cable Routing- Before installing your fork inspect the wire and cable routing, and match the orientation as shown in the video. The wires should not cross over or you will damage the electrical components of your new bike.
Fork- Ensure the fork is oriented correctly before installing the tire.
Handlebars- You will need to orient the handlebars before installing. The display will be on the left side (without chainring).
Brake Levers- The levers should be facing forward and angled slightly towards the ground in order to comfortably squeeze them while maintaining good grip and control on handle bars while riding.
Post Assembly Tuning and Safety Check
Ensure your brakes are adjusted or bedded (Gravel Only)- Brake calipers must be adjusted to perform up to specification. Note that new brake pads need to go through the bedding process and may make noise when braking until bedded.
