Before every ride we recommend running through the following checklist to ensure all of your bike’s components are in good working condition. Always remember to ride safely, follow local traffic laws, and wear appropriate safety equipment.
- BATTERY: Check the battery is properly secured, locked, and is no longer connected to the charger. If you’re going on a longer ride, ensure you have a sufficient level of charge. Also, be sure the pins of your battery are straight and free of corrosion
- BRAKES: Gently squeeze both brake levers to ensure they engage and release properly. Inspect the brake pads for wear and tear.
- THROTTLE: When the bike is OFF, lightly press the throttle tab to test responsiveness. If the throttle does not release, please contact us at email@example.com so we can walk you through some troubleshooting steps. Important: When the bike is ON and you are at a complete stop, you only need to gently press the throttle to accelerate. If you push the throttle to full, you run the risk of injury.
- WHEELS: Lift up your bike and spin each wheel individually. Make sure they spin true/straight and do not touch the brake pads. Make sure the tires are properly aligned on the wheel by checking the thin line going around the rim and making sure it’s even on both sides of the tire
- TIRES: Check tires are inflated to the recommended pressure (25 psi), and inspect them for any damage.
- HANDLEBARS: Adjust handlebars so they are at a comfortable height and are secured to the insertion line. Ensure handlebar grips are firmly attached.
- CHAIN: Check your chain is free of any dirt and rust. If it squeaks when you pedal, lubricate it.
- NUTS AND BOLTS: Check the quick release levers (or front-wheel bolts) and any other nuts and bolts are tight and not at risk of loosening.
- LIGHTS: If you have a light on your bike, test that it turns on and off.
If you identify any mechanical issues with your bike and need assistance, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org / 1-888-375-0041 or consult a local certified bike technician.
