repair contact electric bike technologies if you have any questions regarding a safe operation proper assembly repair or maintenance of your electric bike hello everyone my name is Alec and I'm here to show you how to put together your new electric mountain bike in order to keep things simple we've skipped over to the packaging here and we're going to go straight to putting on the components and showing you what you need to do to get ready to ride before you start you'll want to make sure that you have an adjustable wrench or a 15 millimeter wrench and then inside of the box there'll be a set of hex wrenches and you'll need the four and five millimeter wrench in order to assemble the bike today I want to start with the front wheel when we remove the front wheel from the package we want to be careful not to touch the disc rotor at all the disc rotor on the side here if you get any dirt or oil on there it can degrade your braking performance you also want to be careful not to bend the rotor at any point or you can mess up your braking performance as well additionally when you remove the packaging from the wheel you want to make sure that the axle endcaps don't come off with it your axle is a through axle and there's press-on in caps that you'll want to keep on the wheel at all times when you install it on the bike you'll first want to remove disk caliper spacer you just grab the spacer and pull it straight out words this spacer protects the disk caliper in case the brake levers are accidentally pulled at some point during shipping since the mountain bike has hydraulic disc brakes the pads can get stuck together and not retract fully if there's no rotor and no spacer in when the levers are pulled in order to start installing the wheel you'll want to grab your 5mm meter hex wrench and loosen and remove the thru axle from the front fork you fit the hex wrench into the end of the thru axle and turn it counterclockwise and unthread the thru axle from the drive side drop out until you can pull the axle out all the way at this point it can be handy to have somebody to help you hold the wheel or hold the bike first check that the end caps are in place on both sides make sure those are on line your wheel up holding the bike steady and slip the wheel on the front fork you need to be careful to make sure once the rotor is inside of the disk caliper that you don't twist the wheel at all or you can bend the ruler once you've got the wheel in place insert your through axle and slide it all the way in once the axle is in you can start to tighten the axle by turning clockwise with your five millimeter hex wrench and you'll tighten this to 10 to 15 Newton meters make sure your wrench is in all the way and tighten the next step will be the handlebars and for this you'll need your 4 millimeter allen wrench you'll see the handlebars secure it along the frame here first remove all four screws from the front of the bar stem clamp we're going to take each bolt all the way out and set them aside for now once all four bolts are removed your faceplate comes off of the bar stem clamp and you can lift your handlebars into place note on the handlebars the orientation of the screen and take a look at the cables make sure that the handlebars haven't accidentally been twisted all the way around so that the cables are starting to twist up and once you've got the bars in place you can start putting the bar stem clamp back on lift the cables for the screen out-of-the-way place the bar stem clamp in and you can put your first screw so now we'll want to get each of these screws just finger tight we'll tighten them to their final torque of five to six Newton meters in just a moment once each screw is finger tight I can start to look at the angle of the handlebars and I can Center the handlebars in the bar board by sliding them left and right in order to match the knurling in the middle of the bars up with the bar stem clamp once things are looking about right I can begin to tighten the bar stem clamp all the way going to tighten these screws in a star pattern in order to make sure that they're torqued evenly I'm going to work across the clamp and tighten each through one at a time and then go on to the screw across from the one that I'm working on now you'll want to make sure that you torque the screws fully if they're not tight enough the handlebars can slip inside of the clamp but over tighten screws can break once I'm sure that they're evenly and fully tightened I'm all set with the handlebars once you've got those screws in place we can now start to put on the pedals and the seat the seat is already assembled on the seat post for you in order to install the seat and the seat post in the frame you'll want to open the quick-release clamp take a look at the split in the clamp and make sure that it lines up with the split in the frame and then you can slide your seat in set it at your desired height and then close the quick release clamp in order to lock the seat in place in order to use the clamp properly the only thing you need to do is push it open and turn it closed in order to adjust the tension though start with the clamp open and grab the knurled nut on the back of the quick-release tighten that nut all the way until you can't make it finger tight anymore and then you should notice that the clamp begins to resist closing when it's about halfway closed if it's too difficult loosen the nut just a little if it's too easy tighten the nut just a little once it resists halfway closed you should be able to close it fully and the seat stays put as long as the lever is closed and is easy to move as long as the lever is open the next step is going to be the pedals this is where you're going to me in your 15 millimeter wrench or your adjustable the pedals are labeled on the end l4 left are for right additionally the right hand pedal has a smooth axle while the left hand pedal has knurl x' on the axle at the wrench flat when we're installing the pedals we need to make sure not to mix up the left and the right because the right hand pedal installs clockwise it's a regular right hand thread and tightens clockwise the left hand pedal uses a reverse thread it tightens counterclockwise left hand thread to install the pedals well tighten them first by hand and get them finger tight this helps to make sure they're not cross threaded as you turn them in you can feel them begin to tighten when they're fully tightened the pedal should be threaded in all the way next you can take your 15 millimeter wrench place it on the wrench flat and tighten the pedal all the way to 25 foot-pounds you'll want to make sure that your wrench is going all the way into the wrench flats that it's thin enough to fit in here and that you're able to tighten the pedal fully the left hand pedal is a reverse thread it tightens counterclockwise thread it in by hand this helps to make sure that it can't get cross threaded because you can only thread it in gently by hand once you can't thread it in by hand anymore the pedal should be in all the way then you can take your 15 millimeter wrench put it on the pedal flats hold the crank on the opposite side of the bike and tighten this all the way down to 25 foot-pounds now that we've got everything installed it's time to check our brakes make sure our brakes are working properly give the bike a once-over make sure everything looks alright and then take it for a short test ride thank you adjust the brakes shifter and derailleur only if necessary these adjustments are made prior to shipping you should make any adjustments necessary to properly fit the bike to the rider before riding see the links below for additional resources to assist you and your
