POWER ASSISTED BICYCLES Firstly may we congratulate you on purchasing your new electric power assisted Please take time to read your manual. We have tried to write it in a way that is simple and easy to follow, whilst explaining how your bike works and how it is maintained.

Please call our Technical help line: (weekdays 9am-5pm) 01702 208187 (standard call rate charge applies) 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 8. Switch the battery to ON, with the switch on the side of the battery, and switch the power on by pressing the top power button on your controller on the handlebars. (Fig. 14) 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 3 setting on your controller on the handlebar, allowing you to set the level of assistance you require. (Fig.14) For example: Riding up a hill you’ll probably use ‘High’, mode. You can change the level of assistance you need at any time and as often as you wish. The motor works to assist pedalling, stop pedalling and the motor stops too. Applying the brakes cuts the motor (Fig.13) You can 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 diferent so fgures can vary considerably with diferent 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 your battery. We Recommend that you get used to your new bike and the level of assit 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. 2
