ABOUT THIS MANUAL
This manual was written to help you get the most performance, comfort, enjoyment and safety when riding your new bicycle.
It is important for you to understand your new bike. By reading this manual before you go out on your first ride, you’ll know
how to get the most from your new bicycle. It is also important that your first ride on your new bicycle is taken in a controlled
environment, away from cars, obstacles, and other cyclists.
GENERAL WARNING
Bicycle riding can be a hazardous activity even under the best of circumstances. Proper maintenance of your bicycle
is your responsibility as it helps reduce the risk of injury. This manual contains many “WARNINGS” and “CAUTIONS”
concerning the consequences of failure to maintain or inspect your bicycle. Many of the warnings and cautions say, “you
may lose control and fall.” Because any fall can result in serious injury or even death, we do not repeat the warning of
possible injury or death whenever the risk of falling is mentioned. Dynacraft does not encourage stunting, trick riding, ramp
riding, jumping, aggressive riding, riding on severe terrain, riding in severe climates, riding with heavy loads, riding double,
commercial activities; such use is inherently dangerous, can cause serious injury to the rider, and if done it is with the rider’s
express and implied assumption of the risk of such use and Dynacraft shall not have any responsibility for any breakdown of
the bicycle, its components or rider injuries that occur during such use.
NOTE TO PARENTS
It is a tragic fact that most bicycle accidents involve children. As a parent or guardian, you bear the responsibility for the
activities and safety of your minor child. Among these responsibilities are to make sure that the bicycle that your child is
riding is properly fitted to the child; that it is in good repair and safe operating condition; that the play of young children
is supervised by an adult; that you and your child have learned, understand and obey not only the applicable local motor
vehicle, bicycle and traffic laws, but also the common sense rules of safe and responsible bicycling. As a parent, you should
read this manual before letting your child ride the bicycle. Please make sure that your child always wears an approved
bicycle helmet when riding.

FRAME SIZING
When selecting a new bicycle, the correct choice of frame size is a very
important safety consideration. To determine the correct size bicycle for
the rider:
• Straddle the assembled bicycle with feet shoulder width apart and
flat on the ground
• There must be at least one inch (2.5cm) of clearance between the
highest part of the top tube of the bicycle and the crotch of the rider
with the tires properly inflated.
• The standover height for each bike is listed in the information center
on the product page of every bike on www.dynacraftbike.com
• To measure the inseam, use measuring tape to measure from the
ground (with shoes on) to the inseam of your pants.
• Subtract the standover height from the inseam measurement to
ensure that you have the recommended amount of clearance. If you
have less than one inch or more than three inches (2.5 to 7.5 cm), you
may need to move up or down a frame size.
• For more detailed instructions on how to properly adjust your bike to
fit you, visit our website at www.dynacraftbike.com, find your bike,
and locate the fit video in the Information Center. (Disclaimer: Fit
video not available for all products)
WEIGHT LIMIT
The maximum structural weight recommendations for our bicycles that
are 20 inches or larger are:
• 20 inch bicycles: 176 lbs. (80 kg)
• Adult bicycles up to 26 inches: 275 lbs. (125 kg)
10
CAUTION: For safe and comfortable
riding there should be a clearance of no less than 1
inch between the inseam area of the intended rider
and the top tube of the bicycle frame, while the
rider straddles the bicycle with both feet flat on the
ground.
WARNING: If the bicycle is too large
the rider cannot reach the pedals easily, or the
ground when stopping which may result in loss of
control and/or injury.
RULES OF THE ROAD/SAFETY TIPS
B
NOTE:
Like any sport, bicycling involves risk of injury and damage. By choosing to ride a bicycle, you assume the responsibility for
that risk; not the people who sold you the bike; nor the people who made it; nor the people who distribute it; nor the people who manage or
maintain the roads and trails you ride on. YOU. So you need to know – and to practice – the rules of safe and responsible riding.
1. IN THE INTEREST OF SAFER CYCLING, MAKE SURE YOU READ AND UNDERSTAND YOUR OWNER’S MANUAL.
NOTE AND PERFORM PRE-RIDE SAFETY CHECKS.
2. NOTICE: Some state and local laws may require that your bicycle be equipped with a warning device such as a horn or
bell and a front and rear light if the bicycle is to be ridden after dark.
3. ALWAYS WEAR SHOES when riding a bicycle and AVOID LOOSE FITTING CLOTHES.
4. CHECK YOUR BRAKES FREQUENTLY. THE ABILITY TO STOP YOUR BICYCLE IS CRITICAL. Roads are slippery when
wet so avoid sharp turns and allow more distance stopping. Caliper brakes may become less efficient when wet. Leaves,
loose gravel, and other debris can also affect stopping.
5. ALWAYS RIDE IN THE SAME DIRECTION AS TRAFFIC. Never ride against traffic.
6. STOP AND LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAVE AN ALLEY, DRIVEWAY, OR PARKING LOT. Stop, look to the left, to the right, and
to the left again for traffic. Ride only when it is clear.
7. KEEP TO THE RIGHT. Follow the traffic flow in a straight line and stay close to the curb or in the bike lane, when available.
Watch for cars moving in and out of traffic.
8. OBEY ALL TRAFFIC LAWS REGULATIONS. Most traffic regulations apply to bike riders as well as automobile operators.
9. ONE RIDER PER BIKE. NEVER CARRY OTHER RIDERS. This is dangerous and makes the bike harder to control. The
bicycles distributed by Dynacraft BSC, Inc. are intended for one rider only.
11
B
10. ALWAYS BE ALERT. BE ALERT – pedestrians have the right of way. BE ALERT – when riding near parked cars - ride far
enough away from the cars so that you won’t get hit if someone opens the car door.
11. USE CAUTION AT ALL INTERSECTIONS AND STOP SIGNS. STOP AND LOOK BOTH WAYS BEFORE PROCEEDING.
12. USE HAND SIGNALS. Communicate by using hand signals to tell other drivers what you are going to do. Signal 100 feet
before turning unless your hand is needed to control the bike.
13. PROPER LIGHTS ARE RECOMMENDED IF YOU RIDE AT NIGHT. Be sure to have a strong head-light, a tail light, and a full
set of reflectors. CHECK THAT REFLECTORS ARE CLEAN, STRAIGHT, UNBROKEN, AND SECURELY MOUNTED.
14. NEVER CARRY PACKAGES OR OBJECTS WHICH OBSTRUCT VISION.
15. NEVER HITCH RIDES, never hold onto a moving vehicle while riding.
16. THE KICKSTAND IS DESIGNED TO SUPPORT THE BICYCLE ONLY, not the bicycle and the rider.
17. AVOID THE FOLLOWING HAZARDS: Drain grates, potholes, soft road edges, gravel, sand, wet leaves, and/or any
obstruction in the road. Failure to do so could cause wheel(s) to buckle and result in personal injury to the rider.
18. WET WEATHER RIDING - Riding your bicycle in wet conditions is not recommended. In wet conditions traction and
braking power is reduced. Riding in such conditions could result in personal injury.
19. PROPER HELMET USE. A helmet that meets the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) standard should always
be worn when riding a bicycle. The helmet should fit properly and be worn on the crown of the head, not tipped back.
Ensure to replace your helmet at least every three years to ensure the structural integrity of the foam. Replace after
impact, regardless of lack of visible damage to helmet.
20. USE BIKE LANES when available. Also note that in certain states, cars may use bike lanes when turning.
12
21. RESPECT “Bicycles Are Prohibited” SIGNS.
NIGHT RIDING
B
Riding a bicycle at night is much more dangerous than riding during the day. A bicyclist is very difficult for motorists and
pedestrians to see. Therefore, children should never ride at dawn, dusk or at night. Adults who choose to accept the
greatly increased risk of riding at dawn, dusk or at night need to take extra care both riding and choosing specialized
equipment which helps reduce that risk. Consult your dealer about night riding safety equipment.
WARNING: Reflectors are not a substitute for required lights. Riding at dawn, at dusk, at night or at other times of poor
visibility without an adequate bicycle lighting system and without reflectors is dangerous and may result in serious injury or death.
WARNING: Do not remove the front or rear reflectors or reflector brackets from your bicycle. They are an integral part of
the bicycle’s safety system. Removing the reflectors reduces your visibility to others using the roadway. Being struck by other vehicles
may result in serious injury or death.
RULES FOR CHILDREN
To avoid an accident, teach children good riding skills with an emphasis on safety from an early age.
1. Always wear a properly fitted helmet.
2. Do not play in driveways or the road.
3. Do not ride on busy streets.
4. Do not ride at night.
5. Obey all traffic laws, especially stop signs and red lights.
6. Be aware of other road vehicles behind and nearby.
7. Before entering a street: Stop, look left, right, and left again for traffic.
8. If riding downhill, be extra careful. Slow down using the brakes and maintain control of steering.
9. Never take your hands off the handlebars, or your feet off the pedals when riding downhill.
CAUTION: The Consumer Product Safety Commission advises that the riding of small wheel diameter
bicycles at excessive speeds can lead to instability and is not recommended.

BICYCLE ASSEMBLY
GETTING STARTED
Open the box and check that all parts are present. You can check against the
list on page 9. If any parts are missing or damaged, or if you have any trouble
with the assembly, don’t return the item to the store. Call Dynacraft directly
at 1-800-551-0032 or visit our website at www.dynacraftbike.com, find your
bike, and locate the assembly video in the Information Center. (Disclaimer:
Assembly video not available for all products).
We strongly recommend reading the manual before beginning. If you aren’t
comfortable with the assembly, you should bring your new ride to your local
bike shop to have a qualified mechanic put it together for you. In any event,
you need to read this entire Owner’s Manual before you ride or let anyone else
ride it.
CAUTION:
Figure 1
As you assemble the bike, it’s a good idea to place a little white
grease or anti-seize compound on the seatpost, stem and threads of the bolts to
prevent rusting.
You’ll see that the frame, handlebars, front wheel, and other components
are attached with zip ties. Lift everything out in one piece, and set it down,
with the chain facing upwards. Cut the zip ties, and remove any padding or
packaging.
First, align the fork. Rotate it, to ensure it moves freely without binding (see
Figure 1), making sure the fork is pointing in the right direction, with the fork
blades facing forward (see Figure 2).
16
Figure 2
1. PEDALS
C
WARNING: Attachment of an incorrect pedal into a crank arm will
cause irreparable damage. Unless the shoulder of the pedal spindle is tight to the
face of the crank arm, the pedal may back out causing serious injury or death. Make
it tight so the shoulder is in complete contact with the surface of the crank arm.
Before your first ride, please check to ensure your pedals are attached
correctly.
• There is a right side pedal marked “R” and a left side pedal marked “L”
• The right pedal has a RED sticker, the Left pedal has a GREEN sticker.
• Pedal marked “R” has right hand threads. Tighten in a clockwise direction.
• Pedal marked “L” has left hand threads. Tighten in a counterclockwise
direction (see Figure 3).
After putting some white grease on the threads of the pedal, place the
pedal into the crank, and use your fingers to get it started. Threading it in
can be tricky, so make sure to do it correctly. Regardless of which side
you’re working on, the top of the thread will rotate towards the front of
the bike to tighten the pedals. Once you’ve finger tightened the pedals,
use a 15mm open-ended wrench to snug them down. They are properly
tightened when the pedal spindle, which is the axle that the pedal
platform spins around, begins to bite into the metal on the crank.
Figure 3
If you have a three piece crank, check the crank bolts to make sure they
are tightened (see Figure 4). Re-check the bolts after your first ride.
If you have a one piece crank, firmly grasp the crank arm on the left side
of the bicycle and wiggle it gently. If there is any movement or play in the
crank, use a 15 mm open-ended wrench to tighten the locknut. Repeat
the process until there is no more play in the crank, being careful not to
overtighten (see Figure 5).
WARNING:
Never ride your bike if the cranks are loose. This could
damage the crank arms beyond repair, and result in a loss of control, injury or death.

2. SEAT
WARNING: The seatpost must be inserted far enough so that the minimum
insertion marks cannot be seen.
Add some white grease to the inside of the seat tube, and slide the seatpost
into the bicycle. Make sure that the minimum insertion mark is completely
covered and that the seat is pointing forward in alignment with the bicycle
(see Figures 6 and 7).
CAUTION:
Figure 6
Seatpost
Seat tube
Operate the quick release lever by hand only. Do not use a
hammer or any other tool to tighten the quick release lever.
WARNING:
If the quick release lever is not tightened properly, the
seatpost can loosen while riding. This can cause a loss of control and injury to the
rider or others.
Minimum insertion marks are
located on the seatpost
Figure 7
To install the seat post reflector, first remove the seatpost and saddle from
the bike. Use (A) Standard Phillips Head Screwdriver to loosen the screw on
the clamp of the reflector until you can slide the reflector over the seat post.
Once the reflector is on the seat post, reinsert the seat post back into the
seat tube. Position the reflector so that it is perpendicular to the ground, and
move it up on the seat post until it can be seen above the tire when viewing
the bike from the rear (see Figure 8).
18
Figure 8
C
If your bike has a quick release lever (see Figure 9), tighten it by holding the
lever in the “open” position and tightening the nut on the opposite side by
hand. Slowly close the quick release lever, and you should notice resistance
when the lever is half way shut. Firmly continue to push the lever until it is in
the “closed” position, and the word “close” is showing. The seat should not
be able to move back and forth, up and down, or side to side with the quick
release lever in the closed position. Make sure the lever is also parallel with the
seat clamp itself. You should only need one hand to close the quick release
lever. If you need two hands, the seat clamp is too tight. Loosen the nut on the
clamp until only one hand is needed to close the seat clamp.
Closed
Open
Figure 9
If your bike has a standard seat clamp (see Figure 10), use (B) an Adjustable
Wrench(es) to tighten the nut securely. If your bike has a bolt on seat clamp
(see Figure 11), use (C) a 4, 5, or 6 mm Allen Wrench to tighten the bolt
securely. The seat should not be able to move back and forth, up and down, or
side to side with the seat clamp tightened.
Figure 10

3. TESTING SEAT CLAMP AND POST CLAMP
TIGHTNESS
After installing the seatpost into the bicycle and tightening the clamp, test the
tightness of the saddle. Hold the saddle firmly with both hands and try to move
it side to side. The seatpost should not move at all. The seatpost and saddle
also should not move when the rider is seated. Make sure the seat clamp nuts
at the top of the seatpost are tight so that the seat does not tip forward or
backwards (see Figures 12 & 13).

mark
WARNING:
To prevent steering system damage and possible loss of control, the
stem must be inserted enough so that the minimum insertion marks are completely covered
(see Figure 14).
Add some white grease to the inside of the fork steerer tube. Before installing the
stem, ensure that you have all the parts present and installed in the correct order
(see Figure 17). For a threaded or quill stem, remove the plastic shipping cap from
the bottom of the stem (see Figure 15).

Figure 18
If your bicycle comes with a threadless
stem (see Figure 20), we must first remove
the headset in order to install. Use (C) a 4,
5, or 6 mm Allen wrench to remove the preload bolt, cap and cardboard spacer from
the headset. Discard the cardboard spacer
(see Figure 22).
Loosen the bolts on the side of the stem,
slide the stem into place, making sure it
lines up with the fork (see Figure 18). Check
the gap between the steerer tube and stem,
ensuring there is enough space to reinstall
the cap and bolt. (See Figure 21) If you need
it higher or lower, your local bike mechanic
can help you out with the adjustment. Snug
the pre-load bolt on top. Then tighten the
two bolts on the side of the stem, alternating
each bolt.

The handlebars should come attached to the stem.
Simply ensure that the brake and derailleur cables track
smoothly, and that the handlebar bolt(s) are properly
tightened with (C) a 4, 5, or 6 mm Allen Wrench. (See
Figures 23-25). In the case of a 2 or 4-bolt stem, tighten
the bolts alternating between bolts every few turns. We
will adjust the position and rotation of the handlebars,
brake levers, and shifters later on (see page 35).

5. TESTING HANDLEBAR AND STEM TIGHTNESS
To test the tightness of the stem, straddle the front wheel between your legs
tightly (see Figures 26 & 27). Try to turn the handlebar back and forth. The
handlebar should not slip or move independently of the front wheel at all. If
the handlebar does move, re-align the stem with the front wheel and tighten
the stem bolt. Re-test to make sure the stem is secure with the same process.
To test the tightness of the handlebar, hold the bike stationary and try to
rotate the ends of the handlebar up and down or move the bar forward and
back. If the handlebar moves, loosen the handlebar clamp nut or bolts evenly
to re-position and then re-tighten. Repeat the test until the bars will not move.
Figure 26
WARNING:
To prevent steering system damage and possible loss of
control, the stem and handlebars must be properly adjusted and tightened. DO NOT
OVERTIGHTEN.
Figure 27

C
6. FRONT WHEEL
Before installing the front wheel, ensure that the brakes are
opened enough to allow the tire to fit through them. On side-pull
equipped bikes, you may have to loosen the cable anchor bolt
(see Figure 31) in order to allow the tire to fit through. On Linear
Brake equipped bikes, squeeze the brake arms together by hand,
and lift the cable out of the carrier to open up the brakes (see

7C. Disc Brakes
When installed properly, the disc brake rotor should be centered
between the brake pads, and securely fastened to the wheel (see
Figure 34). Use (C) a 4, 5, or 6 mm Allen Wrench to check the rotor
mounting bolts to ensure that none of the bolts are loose. To tighten
the brake cable, loosen the cable anchor bolt, pull the cable taught,
and re-tighten the bolt (see Figure 35).
Ensure that the mounting bolts on Disc Brake are evenly tightened
(see Figure 35). If not, the Disc Brakes will be out of alignment with the
Rotor, and you will not be able to brake efficiently or safely.
NOTE:
If your bike is equipped with a disc brake, make sure that the disc
rotor slides easily into the brake caliper when installing the front wheel. DO
NOT pull on the lever before the wheel is installed. It may cause the brake pads
to bind together and it is difficult to separate them without the proper tools
and expertise.

8. TESTING BRAKE FUNCTIONS
As part of the initial assembly, you will need to check test
the brake function and adjust the brakes as necessary
to make sure they are functioning properly. For detailed
instructions on brake adjustments, please see pages 35–37.
To test the function of the front hand brake, lift the front of
the bike and spin the wheel. The wheel should not rub on
the brake pads. Next, squeeze the brake lever and take
note of the brake pads contacting the side of the wheel.
The pads should contact the rim on both sides at the same
time. Finally, hold the brake lever firm and try to move the
bike forward. The brake should hold well enough to keep the
wheel from moving. Repeat these steps for the rear wheel
(see Figure 36).

9. DUAL SUSPENSION
Dual suspension bikes are equipped with a front fork as well as a rear
suspension generally located below the seat (see Figure 38). The rear
suspension unit is a combination of a piston that works in conjunction
with a spring to allow the rear swing arm to rotate on a pivot point. Ensure
all attaching hardware is secured and there is no lateral movement of the
rear triangle (see Figure 39). The amount of Rear Suspension travel can
be adjusted by turning the adjusting plate. Clockwise will increase spring
tension and decrease travel, while turning counterclockwise will decrease
spring tension and increase travel. There are many different types of
suspension systems, too many to deal with individually in this manual.
WARNING: There must be enough tension on the spring to hold the
spring plate in place. Failure to do this may cause the mechanism to fail. Failure to
maintain, check and properly adjust the suspension system may result in
suspension malfunction, which can cause you to lose control and fall. Changing
suspension adjustment can change the handling and braking characteristics of
your bicycle. Always check for changes in the performance of your bicycle by
taking a careful test ride in a hazard free area. If your bike has suspension
equipment, the increased speed you may develop also increases your risk. When
braking, the front of a suspended bike dips. You could lose control and fall if your
skill is not up to handling this system. Get to know how to handle your suspension
system safely before trying any downhill or very fast biking.

10. TIRE INFLATION
WARNING: Tires must be properly inflated before
riding. Never exceed the maximum pressure (PSI) that is listed on
the side of the tire.
WARNING:
Figure 42
Incorrectly seated
Properly seated
Be sure to check that the edge (beads) of
both tires are evenly seated the entire way around on both sides of
the tire. Failure to do so may result in the tire coming off of the rim,
the tube popping (see Figure 43), and a loss of control of the
bicycle, causing injury or even death.
WARNING: Using a service station air hose without a
pressure gauge may result in over-inflating of the tire and popping
of the tube. This could also cause irreparable damage to the tube
and tire.
Figure 43
Use a hand pump, foot pump, or floor pump to properly
inflate the tires (see Figure 44). The maximum inflation (PSI)
is shown on each tire sidewall (see Figure 42). If your pump
does not have a built in gauge, use a separate pressure
gauge to ensure the tires are inflated to the correct pressure
(see Figure 45).

11. REFLECTORS
Reflectors are pre-installed on your bicycle
on the pedals, wheels, seatpost, and
handlebars (see Figure 46). Ensure that
the handlebar reflector is pointing straight
forward and perpendicular to ground, and
position the rear reflector so that it points
straight backwards. Use (A) Phillips head
screwdriver to loosen and adjust before retightening (see Figures 47 & 48).

12. ACCESSORIES
Your bike may come with some or all of these accessories that require attachment
and/or assembly.
12A. Kick Stands
If the kickstand is not mounted to your bicycle, place the bicycle in an upright
position against a wall or have someone hold it upright. Place the kickstand in the
bracket mounted on the frame and use a pair of (E) Standard Slip Joint Pliers to
secure the fixing bolt to keep the kickstand in place. Be sure to tighten the fixing
bolt securely. Some kickstands use a top plate to locate the bolt and secure the
kickstand using a fixing bolt. Be sure to tighten the axle nut. The guard will sit
between the frame and the axle nut (see Figure 49).
WARNING: The kickstand is designed to
support the BICYCLE ONLY; not the bicycle and the rider.
12B. Rear Derailleur Guard
Some 20”, 24” and 26” model bicycles come
with a rear derailleur guard to protect the rear
derailleur from damage. To install, remove the
rear wheel axle nut on the drive side, install
the rear derailleur guard over the axle with the
U-shaped guard pointing down, and retighten
the axle nut. The guard will sit between the
frame and the axle nut (see Figure 50).

SEAT ADJUSTMENT
You can adjust the up and down tilt of your seat as well as
the forward and back position by loosening the seatpost
hardware at the bottom of your seat. (See Figure 51.) Be
careful not to loosen them all the way so that the nut comes
off on either side. Loosen enough to make the adjustments,
and re-tighten the nuts. To raise or lower your seat, use the
quick release lever (see Figure 52), an adjustable or Allen
wrench on the seat clamp (see Figure 52) – depending on
the style of clamp your bike comes with. Make sure the
minimum insertion marks on the seatpost are completely
covered (see Figure 53). Close the quick release lever, or
tighten the nut on your seat clamp until it is secure, and the
seat will not move side-to-side or sink with the rider seated
(see Figure 54 & 55). To ensure that your seat is adjusted to
the proper height for you, adjust the saddle so that it’s just
below your hips. Retighten the seat post clamp and mount
your bike. At the bottom of your pedal stroke, your knee
should have a slight bend in it, with the ball of your foot
centered over the pedal. The saddle should also always be
parallel with the top tube. For more detailed instructions on
how to properly adjust your bike to fit you, visit our website
at www.dynacraftbike.com, find your bike, and locate the
fit video in the Information Center. (Disclaimer: Fit video not
available for all bikes)
WARNING
The seatpost must be inserted far enough so
that the minimum insertion marks cannot be seen.

STEM ADJUSTMENT
To raise or lower your stem, use an adjustable wrench
or Allen wrench on the stem bolt to loosen the stem
(see Figure 56). Do not remove this bolt completely,
as the stem wedge may fall inside your frame. Make
sure the stem is inserted enough so that the minimum
insertion marks on your stem are completely covered
(see Figure 57).

WARNING: Do not over tighten the stem bolt. Over
tightening the stem bolt can damage the steering system and
cause a loss of control. If necessary re-adjust the handlebar
and tighten the handlebar clamp nut.
WARNING: Threadless stem systems cannot be
raised or lowered without removing components and
re-adjusting. They should not be adjusted or loosened by
anyone other than an experienced bicycle shop mechanic
(see Figure 58).

HANDLEBAR ADJUSTMENT
D
X
To adjust the handlebars forward and backwards, loosen the stem bolt or
bolts. Your bike may have one (see Figure 59), two (see Figure 60), or four
(see Figure 61) bolts holding the handlebar in place. Do not completely
remove these bolts, simply loosen them until you are able to move the
handlebar to the desired position. Once complete, tighten the bolt(s). If
your stem has multiple bolts, be sure to tighten them evenly (alternating
each bolt a few turns at a time).
To test the tightness of the handlebar, hold the bike stationary and try to
rotate the ends of the handlebar up and down or move the bar forward
and back. If the handlebar moves, loosen the handlebar clamp nut or bolts
evenly to re-position and then re-tighten. Repeat the test until the bars will
not move.
BRAKE LEVER ADJUSTMENT
Figure 59
Figure 60
Make sure that the brake levers are adjusted to a comfortable angle for the
rider. Both brake levers can be adjusted by loosening the clamp bolt and
rotating the lever into the desired position. Once the lever is positioned,
re-tighten the bolt. Make sure both levers are set at the same angle.
Check to make sure that the lever is tight. It should not move on the
handlebar when tightened properly. The reach of the brake levers can
also be adjusted. A screw changes the point where the lever rests. This is
useful for riders with small hands. Simply use (A) a Standard Phillips Head
Screwdriver to adjust this (see Figure 62).

BRAKE ADJUSTMENT
WARNING: Always make sure your brakes are properly adjusted before riding
(see Page 27, Testing Brake Functions).
Brake Pads
• Ensure that the wheel is properly centered within the dropouts and is not out of
true (see Figure 63).
• Using (C) a 4, 5, or 6 mm Allen wrench adjust the brake pad bolts so the brake
pads are in line with the the curve of the wheel, striking the upper edge of the
braking surface, but not the tire. Tighten the brake pad bolts once they are
positioned correctly.
• In addition to being centered on the rim, the front of the pad (towards the front
of the bike) should contact the rim slightly before the rest of the pad.
WARNING:
Make sure your brake pads never make contact with your
tires. If your brake pads rub on the tires, it will cause irreparable damage to your
tire and tube, and may result in a popped tire and could cause a loss of control
resulting in serious injury or even death.

• Once the brake pads are properly positioned, loosen the cable anchor nut on the
Brake Arm (see Figure 64). Firmly squeeze the brake pads against the rim of the
tire, pull the cable taut, and re tighten the cable anchor nut using either (C) a 4, 5,
or 6 mm Allen Wrench or a pair of (E) Standard Slip Joint Pliers.)
• If your brake is not centered, or the pads are not contacting the rim at the
same time, loosen the mounting nut holding the brake to the fork (front) or the
frame (rear) (see Figure 64). Squeeze the brake lever firmly, and tighten the
brake nut while continuing to squeeze the brake lever. Squeeze the brake lever
several times to check to see if the brakes are centered (see Figure 63).

Mechanical Disc Brakes
• To ensure that the brake caliper is positioned correctly, loosen the bolts holding
it in place, and position it so that the outside brake pad is slightly closer to the
rotor than the inside brake pad (see Figures 66 & 67). Then re-tighten those caliper
mounting bolts, alternating until they are both tight. Spin the wheel to make sure
there is no rubbing on any point on the rotor.)
• Squeeze the brake lever to test the caliper. The brake should fully engage
before the lever is pulled back to the handlebar. If you’re able to pull the lever
all the way to the handlebar, or they feel too soft, use the barrel adjuster on the
Caliper and the Brake Lever to adjust the tension until it feels more firm.
Brake Levers
When squeezed, the brake lever should be firm and not bottom out against the
handlebar grip. To remove slack from the cable and make the lever more firm,
use the barrel adjuster on the brake lever or brake caliper. Unscrew the barrel
adjuster and locking nut one turn at a time until the desired firmness is achieved.
Keeping the barrel adjuster in place, tighten the locking nut back down against
the brake lever or brake caliper. If your brake lever is still too soft after adjusting,
further adjustment may be needed by a bicycle shop
WARNING:
brake failure.
If the barrel adjuster is loosened too much it may fall out, causing

SHIFTER ADJUSTMENT
WARNING: Do not ride a bicycle that is not shifting properly.
Overlooking proper adjustments may cause irreparable damage to the
bicycle and/or bodily injury. Never move the shifter while pedaling
backward, nor pedal backwards after having moved the shifter. This
could jam the chain and cause serious damage to the bicycle and/or rider.
NOTE: If you don’t have a bicycle repair stand, it helps to have
Figure 70
someone assist you with the adjustment.
There are three types of shifters that may be on your bicycle.
There is a Shifter/Brake Lever Combo (see Figure 69), a Standard
Shifter (see Figure 70), and a Grip Shifter (See Figure 71). For the
Combo and the Standard Shifter, use your thumbs to shift up,
and your index fingers to shift down with the appropriate levers.
On a Grip Shifter, rotate the shifter on the handlebars in the
appropriate direction to shift up or down.
Figure 69
Figure 71
38
DERAILLEUR ADJUSTMENT
With the chain in the middle cog on the crankset (#2 on the left
shifter), lift the rear wheel off the ground and pedal slowly. While
continuing to pedal, shift the right (rear) shifter through the rings.
It should shift smoothly, and stay in gear without jumping between
gears or excessive noise. If the chain seems to be caught in between
gears, you can adjust the cable by loosening or tightening the barrel
adjuster on the rear derailleur (see Figure 73). If the chain doesn’t
want to go up to the next bigger gear in the back, loosen the barrel
adjuster (counterclockwise) ½ turn. If the chain doesn’t want to come
down to the next smaller gear in the back, tighten the barrel adjuster
(clockwise) ½ turn. Repeat until the chain moves from gear to gear
without hesitation. Avoid shifting your bike into extreme gears- both
the smallest ring and smallest cog at the same time, or both the largest
ring and largest cog at the same time. For most riding situations, your
left shifter, which controls the front derailleur, should remain in the
middle cog indicated by #2 on most shifters. Use 1st gear on the left
shifter only when going up a steep incline, or 3rd gear when going
at a faster pace. If you are having trouble with your shifting, or can’t
get it adjusted properly, bring your bike to a qualified bicycle shop for
service.

MAINTENANCE AND INSPECTION
WARNING: Inspect the bicycle frequently. Failure to inspect the bicycle and to make repairs or adjustments, as necessary, can
result in injury to the rider or to others. Make sure all parts are correctly assembled and adjusted as written in this manual.
• Immediately replace any damaged, missing, or badly worn parts.
• Make sure all fasteners are correctly tightened as written in this manual. Parts that are not tight enough can be lost or operate poorly.
Over tightened parts can be damaged. Make sure any replacement fasteners are the correct size and type.
WARNING: Have a bicycle service shop make any repairs or adjustments for which you do not have the correct tools or if the
instructions in this manual are not sufficient for you.
WARNING: Before every ride, it is important to carry out the safety checks detailed on page 11. (For information and
instructions on performing specific equipment checks, locate the relevant section in the manual referenced on pages 5–6).
40
E
WARNING: Do not attempt chain repairs. If there is a
problem with the chain, have a bicycle service shop make any
repairs.
The chain must be at the correct tightness. If too tight, the
bicycle will be difficult to pedal. If too loose, the chain can
come off the sprockets. When the chain is at the correct
tightness, you can rotate the crank freely and you can pull
it no more than one-half inch away from a straightedge as
shown (see Figure 74).
Figure 74
Adjust the tightness of the chain as follows:
• Loosen the axle nuts of the rear wheel.
• Move the rear wheel forward or backward as necessary.
NOTE: Make sure the rear wheel is centered in the bicycle
frame (see Figure 75).
• Hold the wheel in this position and tighten the axle nuts.
TIRE REMOVAL/SEATING
Before adding air to any tire, make sure the edge of the tire
(the bead) is the same distance from the rim, all around the
rim, on both sides of the tire. If the tire does not appear to be
seated correctly, release air from the inner tube until you can
push the bead of the tire into the rim where necessary. Add
air slowly and stop frequently to check the tire seating and
the pressure, until you reach the correct inflation pressure
(see Figure 76).

• The chain can throw excess oil onto the wheel rim. Wipe excess oil off the chain.
• Keep all oil off the surfaces of the pedals where your feet rest.
• Using soap and hot water, wash all oil off the wheel rims, the brake shoes, the pedals, and the tires.
• Rinse with clean water and dry completely before you ride the bicycle.
• Use only a bicycle specific lube, as other common oils will not provide the correct lubrication.
42
E
BEARING INSPECTION
• Maintenance
Frequently check the bearings of the bicycle. Have a bicycle
shop clean and re-grease the bearings once a year or any
time they do not pass the following tests:
• Header Bearings
The fork should turn freely and smoothly at all times. With
the front wheel off the ground, you should not be able to
move the fork up, down, or side-to-side in the head tube.
• Bottom Bracket Bearings
The crank should turn freely and smoothly at all times and
the front sprockets should not be loose on the crank. You
should not be able to move the pedal end of the crank from
side-to-side.
• Wheel Hub Bearings
Lift each end of the bicycle off the ground and slowly
spin the raised wheel by hand. The bearings are correctly
adjusted if:
–– The wheel spins freely and easily.
–– The weight of the spoke reflector, when you put it toward
the front or rear of the bicycle, causes the wheel to spin
back and forth several times.
–– There is no side-to-side movement at the wheel rim
when you push it to the side with light force.
