Please call our Technical help line: (weekdays 9am-5pm) 01702208187 (standard call rate charge applies) 1. 2. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Press the button on the battery to ON. (Figs) Switch the power on by pressing the top left button on your controller on the handlebars. (Fig.4) As you begin to pedal a sensor will read the level of effort needed to turn the wheels of your bike. After one complete turn of the pedal the electric motor kicks in making pedaling much easier. There are 4 setting on your controller on the handlebar, allowing you to set the level of assistance you require. (Fig-4) For example: Riding up a hill you’ll probably use ‘High’, mode. Change the level of assistance you need at any time and as often as you wish. The motor works to assist pedaling, stop pedaling and the motor stops too. Applying the brakes cuts the motor (Fig.3) Youcan also choose to switch the assist OFF and ON on the controller at any point in your journey. This helps to save battery power when its not needed. The more you use the assist, the more power it uses, each rider is different so figures can vary considerably with different rider weight and the terrain you ride. Generally with normal use, you should be able to obtain around 20 miles, before you need to re-charge yourbattery. We Recommend that you get used to your new bike and the level of assist you place on it, you’ll soon be able to work out how long a journey you can make and safely return under assist. You can of course ride as you would a normal bike if the charge runs out. 1

Use lubrication oil for metal parts. i.e. chain, axles. Wipe down Plastics, paint coated parts with a quality cloth. Increase the frequency of lubricating oil at wet or humid areas ( Recommend 30SAE lubricating oil) Fig.6 It is 0k to oil the front and rear axles and chain . The Motor should not be lubricated. Weekly Inspection It is recommended that after this period you should inspect your bike as things will slacken off and need re-tightening. 3 Month Inspection We recommend after 3 months you complete a full service on your bike to keep it in excellent working order. The simplest way is to take into your local bike shop. When stored and not in use remove the battery and store in a cool, dry place, charging periodically as the battery will discharge over time of non use. Failure to do this will result in the battery falling into a dormant state rendering the battery unrepairable. PLEASE NOTE: If you do not feel that you can complete the maintenance of your bike, please take it to your local bicycle workshop where they will be able to assist you. 8
