8. SAFETY
Important norms
•
•
•
•
Respect the traffic lights
Respect the traffic signs
It is recommended to use helmet for one safety
Keep on the one’s right side and pay special attention when motorized vehicles
are present.
Safety elements (Protection, visibility, circulation)
Use a bicycle homologated helmet, right clothing with reflecting parts and not too much
loose which could get hooked up to any part of the vehicle. Gloves and sport shoes
also increase comfort and safety
Local drive rules
Be aware of all the local drive bicycle rules.
Most countries have specific laws pertaining to bicycles and cycling. Contact local
cycling clubs or the relevant Department of Transportation (or equivalent) for specific
information regarding these laws. ( Check the Town House web site)
Attention while riding
One must be aware of any incident which may happen while riding such as, how avoid
the potholes, the grids of the drains or edges which could help the wheels to skid. To
avoid any obstacle, it should be in a transversal way with an angle of 90º, and if one it
is not sure , get off of the vehicle.
Riding with poor luminosity
Be prudent on riding with poor light. The E-48 is provided with a light and reflector set.
Keep them on. Use the front and rear light at any time required. It is convenient to bring
striking and reflecting clothing, specially during the night .
Take care with wet conditions
The rain reduce the visibility and the grip as well. Ride with the low gears on the turns,
on the zebra pass or sleepy areas in rain and wet conditions. Avoid riding on rainy days,
days with heavy snowfall or through flooded areas..
Take care overtaking cars
If a car comes on your way without indicating it or if someone opens the parked car door
while you are overtaking the car, a serious problem could happen. Use the bell to make
you noticed at any time required..
14
Be cautious before a long route
Remember to bring a kit for repairing a flat tyre, such as a tube, the required tools and
a pump.
It is advisable to bring a tool for everything and a first-aid kit, in case of a long route.
Use the brakes with precaution
Keep a moderate distance with the other vehicles and other objects. Calculate the brake
capacity with the distance.
To stop the vehicle grip both levers at the same time.
The excessive use of the front wheel can provoke a skid on the front wheel, even the
rear wheel may lost contact with the ground, making lost the control of the user and
consequently a fall.
Note: As with any other activity, the use of this vehicle implies certain
risks. To get the E-48, such risk must be assumed by the user. In no
case the dealer or manufacturer are to be liable.
Avoid making unsafe actions while using the E-48
Many cyclist accidents could have been avoided if the common sense had been
applied.
- The hands always on the handlebar: any small imperfection of the road can provoke a
vibration or a sudden turn on the front wheel.
- Not to ride with object hanging from the handlebar or from any part of the frame, they
could touch the spokes or provoke a sudden handlebar turn, causing the vehicle lost
control.
- Do not ride under the alcohol effects or under any medicament which can reduce the
capacity of riding. The E-48 requires a good coordination of movements and the user
shall be always with precaution of anything happening round him.
- Never carry any additional passenger. The E-48 is designed to be ridden by one sole
person. Resides, it is advisable not to increase the limit weight,.
- Never ride with earphones as they reduce the ability to hear other vehicles.
- Never hold oneself on another vehicle while riding.
Important: Get the seat springs covered in case of fitting a kid seat in the
rear.
ATENTION: As any mechanical device, the E-48 is to wear down with
different efforts. The different materials and components used may react
differently to this daily decline. If the lasting life of a given component
has been exceeded, it may suddenly break, injuring the user. The cracks,
scratches or discoloration in the areas subject to intense use indicate
that the component has exceeded its useful life and must therefore be
replaced.
Caution: In case of changing the cranks or tires, the distance between the
wheel and the toes ( feet ) on turning may be reduced, thus putting at risk
the cyclist’s safety.
15
Attention: In case of changing the cranks, pedals, tires, fork etc., the
angle inclination can be reduced, thus putting at risk the cyclist’s safety
9. MECHANICS AND MAINTENANCE
Many of the specific adjustments and general maintenance detailed in this manual can
be done with Standard tools, which one may have at home. Nevertheless, we
recommend to be carried out by a Monty official dealer who, in addition to the necessary
expertise, will also have the tools needed for each item.
9.1 SEAT AND SEAT POST
The height and position of the seat must be according to the right position of the user. A
wrong position can provoke physical problems to the user. The seat must well be fitted
to the seat post and the seat post to the frame well aligned.
9.1.1 SEAT POSITION ADJUSTMENT
•
The seat can be fitted in three parameters.
1. Seat height
2. Seat Inclination
3. Seat rear position
1. The seat’s height is the most important to be comfortable and be able to pedal
safely and efficiently. This adjustment is based on the length of the cyclists leg.
There are numerous specialized methods to choose the height depending on the length
from the groin area to the base of the foot. It is recommend a simple way as follow:
With the seat in a horizontal
position, sit on the bike, ideally, it
could be someone else holding the
bike steady or use a nearby wall for
support.
With one of your heels, press down
on either pedal, stretching the leg
as much as possible. This is the
correct height. (Figure 5)
When riding, the leg should not be
stretched out to the maximum when
the pedal is in the lowest position.
Figure 5
16
The seat adjustment is very personal See section:
. To regulate the height, the seat post release"
quick release must be open, later, the
right height must be selected and
close the quick release properly. The
seat post height must be proportional
to the rider’s height
“ How to adjust the quick
Never extend the seat post
beyond the indicated line on the
tube, as shown in point 1. See
(Figure 6).
Figura 6
2. Seat inclination. This adjustment is the most delicate and personal towards the user.
Generally, it is horizontal or with the tip slanted slightly downwards. Try different
positions until finding the most comfortable.
This adjustment is made by loosing the screw (1) (allen 6 mm) underneath the seat,
set the required inclination thigh the screw. The recommended torque value is (20-25
Newton). See (Figure 7).
3. Seat rear position: This seat adjustment implies moving the seat forwards or
backwards with respect to the seat post. Generally, the seat is centred to the stem
Placing the seat further back generally implies having to bend forward more to reach the
handlebar and excessive strain on the quadriceps muscle group.
To adjust this position, open the same bolt (1) (allen 6 mm) used to get the right
inclination (Figure7).
It is recommended to set at
the same time: The
inclination and the rear
position.
Figure
17
9.1.2 HOW TO ADJUST THE QUICK RELEASE
Quick releases clamp systems do not need tools, they are frequently used for seat
stems, axles and folding systems.
The quick releases consists of two principal parts which must be adjusted
a) The blocking lever which applies the force and.
b) The nut to adjust the lever’s strength.
For the proper and safe clamp adjustment, follow the following steps:
1. Turn the lever to the open position ( “open” is engraved on the lever ). See Figure 8
Figure 8
Figure 9
2. Choose the desired height while respecting the maximum indicated (Figure 6).
3. Turn the lever to close ( “Close is engraved on the lever”). (Figure 8)
4. If the lever is easily set to the “Close” position (less than 50 N (Newton ), this means
that it is not tight enough, in this case, open again the lever to the “OPEN” (Figure 9)
and tight the quick release again clockwise until noticing is well tight
5. Turn the lever to the “close” position. Once fastened in the right position (“Close” is
engraved on the lever) Figure 8
6. If the force required to turn the lever were excessive (more than 200 N (Newton)
repeat the previous step, turning the bold counter-clockwise. Do this as many times as
necessary until safe
The quick release must be positioned in a way that it does not interfere
with other components and easy to be handled
In case of doubts or if you can not set the adjustment, take E-48 to an authorized dealer or
contact us
9.2 HANDLEBAR AND STEM
The handlebar and stem must be fitted correctly at the suitable position of the user and
well tightened. .

brake while moving the vehicle forwards and backwards. Check if the headset is loose.
The fork and stem can have a small play
How to check the adjustment of the headset
Place oneself over the horizontal tube with both feet on the ground. With the front wheel
resting on the ground, turn the fork and stem to the left and to the right and vice versa.
Feel if the headset is excessive tighten, in a way that it gets broken in some points by
turning it
Adjustment (only A-Head)
If the Headset has a play or the fitting is not set properly, it must be tighten in the same
way indicated. 9.2.2 A-HEAD STEM/ Adjustment of alignment.
Caution: Adjusting the Headset requires special tools and expertise. It is
recommended to check it with an authorized dealer.
Attention: An incorrect headset adjusting may cause one to lose control of
the bike and fall down. Ensure that the headset and stem to be correctly
fitted before each use.
LUBRICATION
The Headset should be lubricated once a year. This requires specific know-how, expertise
and special tools, for this reason only an authorized dealer should do it.

9.4 SUSPENSION SYSTEMS: FORKS
The suspension forks allows the front wheel move , absorbing road irregularities and
lessening the vibrations which the rider actually feels. The suspension forks need to be
lubricated on a regular basis so that they work smoothly and their useful life be extended.
This manual is a supplement to the maker fork information, If you have not received this
information, one can unload it from the maker’s web site or get in touch with Monty
INSPECTION
Before riding the E-48, make sure that the suspension is working correctly. Do not use the
bike if there is not enough distance between the fork and the Wheel.
LUBRICATION
Follow the instructions regarding lubrication and maintenance in the suspension manual.
9.5 WHEELS (mounting, rims, tires and tubes)
22
The wheels ( rims and tires ) are an extremely important part of the E-48. Check the right
pressure of the tires and their condition and the rim as well. This is to depend on riding
conditions, ground contact, the braking system and safety in general.
One should periodically check to make sure that the wheels are securely held, that they
are centred and do not buckle when moving. One should also ensure that the tires are
properly inflated and that the thread is neither cracked nor worn down. The rim surface
where the brakes make contact should be free of grease. Check the spokes not ot be
broken or lose. The hubs should turn gently without moving side to side. Check it by
moving the wheel sideways.
Caution: A wheel in poor conditions may cause the user to lost control
and a possible fall. Check the wheels each time before riding and do not
use the bicycle until any possible problem had not been solved.
Wheel mounting
To mount the wheels, follow the following steps:
1. Mount the wheel to the fork ( front wheel and rear wheel ), ensuring that the axle
is well placed in the fork groove.
2. Place the fixing nut
3. Tighten both nuts on either side of the axle by alternating and progressively
tightening both in turns.
4. See the section: Torque value chart, for a right tight
Check to ensure that the axles nuts are correctly placed as specified above. If they are
not, readjust following the same steps or take the E-48 to an authorized dealer.
Rear wheel
The rear wheel holds the E-48 engine, and the engine cable comes out from one side of
the axle, in case of a flat tyre or to change the tyre, the wheel can be moved partially and
work on the contrary side of the axle.
If you need to remove the Wheel completely, one must follow the cable to find out the
connector. Normally the connector is found in the exterior side. Depending to some
versions, the side cover underneath the battery to disconnect the engine cable.
VERY IMPORTANT: Take note of the connections before disconnecting in order to
connect them correctly later on. An incorrect connection may cause a severe problem. We
recommend an authorized dealer to carry this work.
Lubrication: The hubs must be lubricated on time per year. This operation requires
some knowledge and special tools. We recommend an authorized dealer to do it.
Caution: The rear Wheel has to be carefully mounted, ensuring that the
motor cable comes out of the axle is not pinched or bent. The axle is
provided of special washers to avoid the axle turning. Place them
properly
To remove wheels with a V-Brake system, the brake bridge has to be
open first. Another option is to get the tyre flat.
23
Rims
Information of the rim wear and associated risks.
As the rim surface is part of the braking system, it is to be wear down. Using a bicycle with
worn rims implies a serious risk for the user. For this reason, please pay special attention
to this component.
Some rims are engraved with a line to indicate the wear level of the rim. In this case, the
user must ensure that the surface does not reach such a level, if it does, the rim must be
changed. If you have any questions or doubts about the rims, contact n authorized dealer.
The rims are provided with a warning icon such as that in figure 10.11
CAUTION: Excessive wear of the braking
surface may cause a failure in the holding system
and lead to injuries. Inspect the brake surface area for
wear. Do not use rims that are severely worn.
Figure 15
Tires
The tires thread has to be in good condition and not to be worn, cracked or scratched. The
thread pattern must be in good shape for a right traction.
The tire’s measurements are printed on the lateral sides. Make sure when changing the
t1yre to be compatible with the rim and bicycle.
Caution: When replacing the tyre. Make sure that it is compatible with the
rim and tyre of bicycle. E-bike tires have unique characteristics compared
to standard tires.
Tyre pressure
Tires must be inflated to the right pressure to ensure the bike works properly. that is to
say:
- With a 4 kg (high ) tyre pressure, it is to achieve a greater speed though the riding is to
be less comfortable and more nervous, with the added risk of falling on curves or slippery
surfaces.
- With a 2.5 kg. ( normal riding ) tyre pressure, greater comfort is achieved.
You can adjust the tire pressure between 2.5 and 4 or even 4.5 kg to adapt to any
requirement.
The valve is like the “American” type as the ones used by the cars. However, it should be
avoided filling the tires in the petrol stations, etc.. Use a pump with a suitable nozzle to the
valve. To inflate the tyre, remove the valve cap and place the nozzle on the valve,
ensuring that no air escapes. Check the pressure and place the cap back on the valve,
ensuring air not to escape, verify the pressure and place the cap back on the valve to
keep it from getting dirty.
If the inner tube is flat, it is recommended to change it and not to fix it.
Before riding your bike, check the tire pressure ( inflate the tires without exceeding the
limit printed on the lateral sides of the tires ), the tires wear, the fitting and the alignment of
the rims.

9.6 BRAKES
Ensure the brakes to work properly. They must perform and stop the bicycle within a safe
distance. The engine should stop by squeezing either brake lever brake. Ensure the
brake shoes / pads not to be excessively worn down.
00.
It is extremely important the brakes to work correctly for one safety and for
the others as well. Etc.. As any braking system, an incorrect adjustment,
poor maintenance or a bad use of the brakes may cause to lose the control
of the E-48 with all the consequences that this might imply.
Never use the bike if the braking system is not working correctly or if you
suspect any type of problem either with the brakes or their cables. If the
E48 does not work properly, fix it or take it to an authorized dealer.
Verify the brake system before using the E-48 and not use it if you detect
any problem.
Brake adjustment and working
To brake or stop the E-48, the two brake levers must used properly, according to the
circumstances and the engine is to stop automatically. The brake system is: Left lever to
brake the front wheel and the right lever to brake the rear wheel.
Brake system
In the electric bicycles, the action of the brake levers no only act on the rims or disc, but
on the engine as well, being disconnected at any time the brake lever is used. The E-48
models are provided with a rim and mechanical disc brake.
The brake system allows one to slow down, being a critical function on the bike. This
section describes how to inspect, adjust and lubricate the brakes of the E-48. Read the
specific information about the exact type of the brake to assemble.
Adjusting the braking system is difficult if one does not have the
necessary know-how, experience and material. It is strongly
recommended to make the brake adjustments by an authorized dealer.
9.6.1 RIM BRAKE SYSTEM
In these types of brakes, the levers are connected by means of cables. By squeezing the
brake lever, the shoes squeeze the rim, thereby slowing down the Wheel and the bicycle
cables.
25
These systems consist of the following components:
- Rim
- Brake lever
- Cables and casings
- Brakes shoes/pads
Never use this type of brake on the wheels designed for disc brakes. The rims require a
flat surface for the brake shoes to work properly.
Verification
Before using the bicycle, squeeze the brake levers hard. The lever should never touch
the handlebar. If it does so, the cable length will have to be adjusted as it described
forwards.
When the brakes are not being pressed ,the brake shoes should be at 1-2mm from the
rim. The brake shoes must be aligned with the rim surface. If the brakes are to loose, tight
or unaligned, adjust them before using the E-48.
One should bear in mind the brake shoes ’angular alignment with respect to the rims to
keep the brakes from grating. Used shoes and some new, V-type brakes may not require
this alignment.
Check the brake shoes , at least, once a month. They have small groves on their surface.
If any of these are less than 1mm deep, they will have to be changed. If the original brake
shoes do not have any grooves, they will have to be replaced when there were only 3 mm
left of the rubber block with respect to the metal support.
Setting the brake shoes vertically should be such that the rim’s edge were 1mm above the
brake shoes edge. The brake shoes have to make contact with the rim perpendicularly to
the brake surface as shown in . (Figure 16)
The brake shoes must also be slightly tilted to the direction in which the wheel turns.
Otherwise, the braking will be less effective and the braking is to make a lot of noise..
(Figure 17)
Check the brake cables once a month to ensure that they are not bent or rusted and that
there are no broken threads. Also check the coating to detect ant loose cables, bent ends,
cuts and wear. Remove any defective cable or coating .
The lever and brake shoes bolts should be tightened every three months. The V-brake
type bolts must also be tightened every three months.
Figure 16
Figure 17
AJUSTMENT
How to adjust the distance between the brakes shoes and the rim
To increase the distance between the brake shoes and the rim, turn the screw (Figure 18)
clockwise and to reduce the distance, turn it counter-clockwise. If it is not possible to
adjust the brake shoes as it is indicated above, loosen the cable bolt clamp and reattach
the cable.
26
Figure 18
How to adjust the brake shoes alignment
Loosen the brake shoes bolt.
Follow the instructions above detailing how to inspect for the brake shoes alignment.
Afterwards, squeeze the brake lever as hard as possible approximately 10 times. Ensure
that the cable have not come loose, that the brake shoes are correctly aligned with
respect to the rim and that the pads do not touch the tires.
How to adjust the brake shoes alignment
V-brakes type: Disconnect the joint tube and with a hand, squeeze firmly the brake shoes
against the rim and from the other hand, pull the tub backwards from the joint and raise it
up. Once disconnected, the tube is to come free. To closet he brakes, follow these same
instructions in reverse order.
Lubrication
The brake lever pivots should be lubricated every 3 months with a synthetic lubricant, the
same as it is used for the chains.
When installing a new brake cable, it should be lubricated with a thin coat of synthetic
lubricant.
9.6.2 MECHANICAL DISC BRAKES
Instead of using a brake shoes to press on the wheel rim, a pad squeezes in a disc placed
on the front wheel or rear wheel hub. The disc is fitted to the axle by means of bolts on the
left side. The brake is activated by means of a cable connected to the brake lever.
The braking system consist of the following:
- Brake lever
- Brake cable & casing
- Brake disc pads
CAUTION. The disc brakes may be very hot after using them. Be careful
when inspecting them. As with other bicycle parts, avoid placing fingers
inside the disc.
Squeeze the brake levers 10 times before riding. The levers should not touch the
handlebar.
Ensure that there is no oil, grease or any other matter on the disc. The disc is part pf the
braking system and should always be kept clean. Remove the pads from their supports for
a deep cleaning. Do not use any cleaning products, degreasing liquids or solvents to clean
the disc. Only use isopropyl alcohol.
Ensure, once a month, the disc brakes not to be worn out. If the brake pads are less than
1 mm thick, they will have to be changed. Also, check the pads to be correctly positioned:
A distance between 0.25 and 0.75 from the disc when not using the brakes. Turn the
27
wheel while not pressing the brake lever. The pads should touch the discs as little as
possible.
The brake cables should be checked once per month to ensure that they are not twisted
or rusted, no broken threads or ends, and check their casing for cuts or wear. Change any
defective piece.
AJUSTMENT
• How to adjust the separation between the pads and disc:
Turn the pad’s adjustment screw. To increase the separation, turn it counter-clockwise
and to reduce the distance, turn it clockwise.
• How to align the brake to the disc:
Loosen the brake mount bolts. Squeeze the lever completely and gradually tighten the
bolts as it is indicated in the inspection section above.
• How to remove the brake pads
Remove the Wheel. With the fingers or a thin-nosed pliers, grab hold of the brake pad tab
and pull..
• How to remove the wheel:
With disc brakes, the braking system shall not to be removed. Carefully slide out the disc
from the brake. When the wheel is to be fitted, carefully the disc must be guided between
the pads. If the disc is pushed to the edge hard against the pads, they could be fractured
or damaged . as a result they would have to be replaced.
Important: The left brake lever corresponds to the front wheel and the
right brake lever to the rear wheel.
9.7 TRANSMISSION
The transmission must work properly. It has to be clean and lubricated, not to make noise
and the gear mechanism must work smooth and exact.. All the links of the chain must
pivot well and without noise. So, any link of the chain can be deformed.
A correct transmission is crucial for a right working.
Transmission set and adjustment.
The E-Bike 48 transmission set carries power from the rear wheel by means of: Pedals,
chain ring & cranks, chain and freewheel
This section explains how to inspect, adjust and lubricate the transmission set.
Pedals
Inspect the pedals every three months. Check to make sure the pedal reflectors to be
clean and correctly positioned. Make sure the pedals to be well fixed to the cranks.
To check the pedals to work correctly, move the pedals up and down and left to right. If
they are either too soft or rigid, take the E-48 to an authorized dealer to have them
adjusted, lubricated or replaced.
Cranks set and chain
Inspect the crack set every three months, check to ensure the bolts joining them to be
tight.
Check the chain every three months for wear. Each complete link of the chain measures
25.4 mm. If twelve links in the chain measure more than 30.8cm, the chain should be
28
replaced or it is recommended to change it at the 1.500 km. Special tools and expertise
are required to change the chain. Please take the E-48 to an authorized dealer.
Adjustment
The adjustment of the transmission set composed of freewheels, chain, chain wheel and
pedals must be made by an authorized dealer since it is required specific tools and
expertise.
Lubrication and cleaning
Clean and lubricate the chain and sprockets once a month. Avoid excess grease falling on
the rest of the bike by placing a rag behind the chain. Once the chain has been lubricated,
wipe off any excess grease with a rag.
Do not use gasoline to clean the sprockets as it is highly inflammable and leaves a thin
film of grease when it evaporates. Use a degreasing liquid and brush the sprockets to be
clean.
Caution: The left and right pedals are stamped to indicate what side they
correspond to: “R” = right and “L” = left.
Figure 19
Figure 20
9.7.1 Setting the rear derailleur
The speed system changes the freewheel derailing the chain and moving it from one
sprocket onto another..
Inspection
The derailleur gear system is considered to be correct if its silent. If after every change a
small temporary sound is heard, it may need to be adjusted. If it can not be adjusted and
the sound increases, take the E-48 to the an authorized dealer.
Check once a month the cables are not to be bent or rusted and check the cable not to
have broken threads or deteriorated ends. The casings shall be verified as well to detect
any lose cable, bent ends, cuts and wear. If there is a problem detected, no use the E.48,
change the cable or take the E-48 to an authorized dealer.
29
Once a month check the shift lever to work properly. Every time a gear is changed, the
sprocket should be moved in such a way that the chain is being moved smoothly and
without jumps. The chain should never fall off of the internal or external sprocket.
Adjustment
The adjusting of the derailleur must be done with the bike firmly held on the work bench or
with someone holding the rear wheel up in the air so that the transmission and the
derailleur can work on a relaxed position.
17
How to adjust the derailleur
The rear derailleur has two screws to regulate the limits, inner and outer, of the travelling
which can be set in two different places , depending on the derailleur model.
- Set the outer roller in line with the smallest sprocket, using the regulating outer screw
(H).
- Set the outer roller in line with the largest sprocket, using the regulating inner screw (L).
To check it, try to pedal with all the possible freewheel options:
- If, when in the intermediate positions, a noise is heard when changing the gears or the
chain does not move to another sprocket smoothly, examine the cable tension ( set on
the shift lever or in the same change ) to adjust it properly.
- if the chain falls from the small sprocket, tighten the outer limit screw (H), a quarter turn.
- if the chain does not fall from the small sprocket, loosen the outer limit screw (H), a
quarter turn.
- If the chain falls from the large sprocket towards the spokes, tighten the inner limit screw
(L), a quarter turn. If the chain does not move up to the big sprocket, loosen the inner limit
screw ( L), a quarter turn.
If the sprocket system can not be lined up as it is explained above, take the E-48 to an
authorized dealer.

Figure 24
How to set the gear mechanism system
To avoid any mechanical problem ( chain falling off, noise when pedalling, etc.) the below
recommendations should be followed::
- Set the right speed changing just before the beginning of the climbing or to avoid any
obstacle.
- when one is going to change the gears, keep pedalling but without pushing the pedals
excessively, using the shift lever till the chain is placed on the required sprocket
- Avoid changing the gears while struggling to move uphill, for example, even if the
synchronized systems allows to do so.
In the E-48, the shift gear is necessary in order to get the maximum performance of the E48. This model is provided with a Shimano derailleur of 6 or 7 speed, to help the
interaction between the rider and the vehicle.
Las E-Bikes use a chain-based derailleur system. Changing the gears is done by using
the right-hand shift lever or the left one depending on the model..
Chose the gear which offers the most comfort while riding. It is possible to change the
gear while chain is moving forward. Never change the gear while the chain is still or
moving backwards.
Use the appropriate speeds before any change in the terrain.
Continue pedalling gently while sifting the gears.
1 and 2 speeds for the starting and strong u-hill.
3 and 4 speeds for even surfaces or light up-hills.
5 and 6 for the descending and high speed.
To change the gears, smooth the pedalling while you are using the shift lever, and without
letting pedalling, change the gears one by one. Before stopping, change to the speed 1 or
2 2.
Lubrication
31
The pivot points and the pulleys should be lubricated each month. Any cable which has
been replaced should be greased in those areas where they are covered or where they
are rubbed against another component.
Chain tension
The E-48 model is provided with a rear derailleur with a chain tensor. If the chain has the
right length and the derailleur works correctly, the right chain tension should be
maintained automatically.
Lubrication
It is very important to lubricate the vehicle components which do not generally require any
maintenance, at least once a year, such as the hubs, gears, pedals and chain and as any
new cable which may have been changed. Special oils should be used. Look for them in a
specialized shop. See the maintenance chart.
9.8 LIGHTS AND REFLECTORS
The reflectors reflex the light received from outside. While riding in the night or in
conditions with poor visibility, or in the case that your vehicle is illuminated by another car,
the reflector are to help to be seen. They are part important from the safety system and
they should never be removed.
Check the lights pointing in the right direction (perpendicular to the ground) and avoid any
front and rear lights clean to work properly. Verify, every two months, the washers and
item to cover them.
It is important to keep the fix system to be well fastened.
Check the local rules for the correct light system to be used on the public means. Verify
the cables to be connected to the light device, the bulbs and all the system to work
properly. If a problem is being detected get in touch an authorized dealer..
32
10. LA BATTERY AND CHARGE
The battery is the most important item of the E-48. A correct charge of the battery is
extremely important to determine the battery’s life. The battery must be charged on the
whole before using the vehicle. The battery is provided with a indicator to show when the
battery is full charged. Make sure the ignition key to be blocked to avoid the vehicle move.
The E-48 is equipped with a Lithium battery (LI) de 36 V 9 Ah. it consist of cells grouped
together in series with an electronic control charge. It does not require any maintenance
like the Lead-Acide ones(LA). It can be recharged at any time, thought, it is
recommended not to get the battery discharged completely.
Good use of the battery
The first charge of the battery is very important to determinate the battery’s life. It must be
complete (4/6 hours approx.) till the indicator shows to be full up.
The lithium batteries are very sensitive while being charged. An inadequate power supply
may damage the battery.
In general, the batteries are also sensitive to extreme temperatures.
Any manipulation of the battery by the user is to invalidate the warranty and free the
manufacturer of any possible liability.
The battery charge must be made in a dry and well-ventilated area.
The batteries may discharge itself. It is normal to decrease the charge when the vehicle
has not been used for a long time.
It is recommended to make a complete discharge every three months, later,
follow with a compete charge.
10.1 Charge
The E-48 is provided with a charger of high power. Please follow the following steps:
•
•
•
•
•
The charges must be on position: ”off(O)”, stop (F) in (Figure 26)
Connect the charger to the battery (B) in (Figure 25)
Connect the charger to the electric system
Set the charger switch to the position ,“on(I)”, start.
Once the charge is finished, set the charger in position “(O)” and disconnect from the
electric system.
Figure 25
The battery can be charged on the vehicle while is still or be removed. If the battery is
being removed, it must be handled with care. A supplied key is provided to unlock the
battery’s safety latch. (A) in (Figure 25).
33
If the battery must be removed to be charged. Unlock the battery with the key and lift it up
enough to take it out from the setting. When the charge is finished, place it again, making
sure to be well placed by sliding the battery downwards and close the safety latch.

The battery is provided with a safety fuse of 10 A, in case that the charged dis not work,
verify the fuse. (H) in (Figure 27), and change it, in case of being fused
Indicators of the charge level
The E-48 includes a battery charge indicator on the handlebar., (I) in (Figure 28). If the
indicator light showed a line, while using the E-48, this would mean that the battery
capacity is run out, in this case it should be charged at once. The battery includes an
indicator which can be activated by a button. “lined” (B) in (Figure 29).
Figure 28
Figure 29
34
Very important: Do not allow children to charge the battery. The electric
charge (220 v), can cause serious personal injuries or even death. Do not
charge the battery barefoot, on a damp or wet floor or in conditions which
might threaten the one personal safety. The plug of the electric system
must meet the pertinent safety conditions.
Use the charger corresponding to E-48 model. Make the charging work in
a well-ventilated area
The manipulation of the battery by the user is to invalidate the warranty
and free the manufacturer of any possible liability.
The temperature may effect the battery to work properly. In general, the battery is to work
well in high temperatures. When the temperature drops below 0 Cº, its performance can
be reduced by a third of its power. For this reason, it is probable that the charge can last
less time in winter. At 20 C, the battery shall work normally.
When the temperature exceeds 35º-40º ( or if the battery has been exposed to the sun for
a long time ) , the electric components may not work normally.
Actions which may effect or reduce the battery performance.
•
•
•
•
Constantly starting and stopping the E-48 as it can be in the cities
Constantly braking and turning the bike on and off.
Ride upwind or uphill and carrying extra weigh
Low pressure tire and braked wheels.
The above actions can influence the battery’s performance, reducing its life and the
distance to be travelled being shorter. It is recommended to take well note of them to
extend as much possible the distance which the E-48 can travel.

Pedal assisted system (PAS)
The pedal assists to a sensor which detects the move and power of the pedals when they
are activated by the user. This system is set in the BB, transmitting the required
information to the controller for its working.
Controller
The E-48 controller is the nerve centre of the system. It consists of a small box fitted under
the battery compartment and where all the components are connected.
The controller receives all the necessary information from the brakes, pedalling sensors
(turns and pedalling force) , engine. battery, etc.., then it process to operate the E-48.
The controller is responsible of the engine to work properly and the E-48 to be safe.
Checking and handling the battery requires specific tools and know-how. Only an
authorized dealer or the Monty plant should manipulate it.
Engine
The E-48 is provided with a top-quality and resistant engine. The engine is part of the rear
wheel, designed to provide maximum service with barely any required maintenance. It can
be either a brush or brushless type, depending on the its version. The engine, as part of
the rear wheel must be well fixed as it is explained in the section: Wheels. Otherwise,
there is a risk of a serious problem. Be specially careful with the cable coming from the
axle.
Have special attention with the engine cable not to bend or damage it in any way.
Important: Avoid heavy hits to the wheel or damage the rim as the engine
could be damaged as well.
It is recommended to check it , once per year, to ensure to work correctly.
36
12. ACCESSORIES
To improve the E-bike components, many of them are provided with different types of
accessories. Such as lights to improve the visibility of the user, racks or bells. All the
accessories must be in good conditions to ensure their optimal performance.
REVISION
The screws and bolts should be inspected once a month. The right torque value for the
fender bolts is. 3.5-4.5Nm ( Newton ) and the bolts from the junction between the fenders
and the frame is 6-7Nm. ( Newton )
LIGHT SET
The light set has been designed to increase the safety of the user in conditions with a poor
visibility as it can be while riding at night or in the fog. The lights are being powered by the
E-48 battery’s. Once connected , ensure that they light up and point in the right direction
to obtain the optimal combination of shine and brightness suited to one’s requirement.
The light set must be always kept clean.
Remember that the vision can be reduced at night, therefore, it is recommended to show
down and adapt the riding to the required situation. At night, even the lights are on, the
visibility is less than during the day.
In addition, it is recommend to change the bulb set every six months because there is not
any warning system to detect it if they are broken and one may run the risk of not having
any light when you need the most
Avoid overstretching or cutting the cables. If this happens, the lights are to get off.
If the battery is discharged on the whole, the light system will let to function so , be sure
the battery to be well charged and bring a fuse as spare parts.
Peligro
INSTALLATION
In case that the vehicle is not provided with a light set, it is recommended to visit an
authorized dealer.
To change the bulbs, make sure of the original bulb’s voltage and power. In case of any
doubt, contact and authorized dealer.
HOW TO INSTALL A BULB
Locate and unscrew the bolt or the system to move the covering of the front and rear light
.Remove the bulb set in a way that the bulb can be taken out.
Take care of not breaking the bulb while taking it out.
Place the new bulb and follow the same instructions in reverse order to finish it.
LEDS
The leds have less consumption and last more time than the standard ones, however, the
change is not so easy as the bulbs.
When a leds light is disconnected, take in mind that the polarity can not be
changed . It is necessary to respect the same polarity.
