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.
The motor cable exits near the brake rotor, routed around the outside of the kickstand and zip tied to the frame. This is to avoid damage from the brake rotor or tire. If removing the rear wheel be sure it is not damaged.
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 before installation
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.
