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)
Crank Arms- Ensure the crank arms are facing opposite directions from each other in a 180° orientation. Do not tighten the crank bolt until you are certain they are in proper positioning. A specialized tool is required to remove the crank once installed.
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. The brake caliper mount will be on the left side of the bike (without chainring)
Handlebars- You will need to orient the handlebars before installing. The display and throttle will be on the left side (without chainring) and the shifter on the right side (with 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.
