Tips to Avoid Common Mistakes:

If you are not familiar with bike assembly, it may be best to have it assembled by a bike shop or have them inspect your assembly. If you need assistance please share pictures and contact us:

As with many bike components, proper installation is important to avoid damage to the bike and to avoid injury while riding the bike.

  1. Do not touch the brake rotors with your fingers. The oil can contaminate them and cause noise when braking.
  2. Do not squeeze the brake levers when unless the brake rotor is installed in the calipers.


  1. Rotate your fork so the brake caliper is on the left (the non drive side of the bike). The stem should be pointing forwards. Note the cable and wire routing at this time, avoid kinks or twists.

Front Fender (ST & XR models)

  1. The fender should be mounted on the front of the fork, behind the light. There are 5 points of adjustment to get the right fit for the fender. 
  2. Complete this step before installing the front wheel.

Front Wheel

  1. ST XR (quick release skewer)
    1. Install the quick release skewer. Note the angle of the conical springs, the cones are pointing inward. Thread the nut on just a little so it can self center and leave room for installation
    2. This is easier with an extra person. Carefully align the front wheel with the brake rotor on the left.
      Slide the front wheel into place. Ensure it is fully seated and well aligned. Do not force it or you may bend your brake rotor.
    3. It should be tight enough that it is difficult to close and should leave an impression on your hand 
    4. You may need to redo this step if the wheel is not properly seated, aligned, and spinning smoothly.

  2. XC(thru axle)
    1. The thru axle must be installed from the drive side of the fork.

  3. Handlebars & Wire/Cable routing.

    1. Before installing handlebars, check wire and cable routing, you may need to flip (left to right, right to left, front to back, back to front) to make sure the wires are routed without any tension or kinks. They should leave the handlebars and smoothly sweep down to the bike frame.
    2. When you tighten the stem onto the handlebar clamp area intermittently tighten the screws in a crisscross pattern making sure the gap is the same at all locations.
    3. Carefully connect align the notches and arrows in the display wire and seat the connection.
  4. Pedals

    1. Before installing the pedals, It's very important to apply a conservative amount of grease to the pedal threads. This will ensure the pedals are making a solid seat into the crank arms and help mitigate the pedals from being seized in the crank arm.
    2. The left pedal must go on the left. It is reverse thread, align it and screw it in by hand counter clockwise. It should go in easily. Do not force it or cross-thread it. Then tighten with a thin wrench no wider than the flat surface.
    3. The right pedal must go on the right. It has a standard thread, align it and screw it in by hand clockwise, it should go in easily. Once in, tighten with a thin wrench no wider than the flat surface.

  5. Battery

    1. The battery can be charged while in the bike or it may be removed and charged.
    2. However, if you need to remove the battery, gently turn the key. This will partially release the battery. 
    3. Using both hands to support the battery, push the lever on the lower left side of the battery (see arrow below) to release it fully and slide it out.

  6. Before Riding - After Assembly Tuning

    Assembly Complete? Now is a great time to:

    1. Tune your derailleur with bike off and verify hanger is straight: Click Here
      1. Failure to do this may cause damage to your rear wheel, shift sensor, derailleur, and derailleur hanger.
    2. Make sure your brakes are well adjusted and tuned.
    3. Double Check Your cable routing.
    4. The display is quite intuitive but here is the manual to review the features Brose Allround Display Manual.
