Make sure to insert the stem past the “minimum insertion line” (line
embossed on the lower end of the stem)(3-B) and then adjust to the
desired height. Before tightening, align the stem and handlebar so that
they are square to the front tire (3-C).
Tighten the stem bolt firmly. To check the tightness, brace the front
wheel between your knees, then try to turn the handlebar left and right.
The stem should not move.

REMEMBER, the handlebar stem may be raised or lowered for comfort, but it should never be raised above the
“minimum insertion line” marked on the stem.
4. INSTALL PEDALS
Required tool – 15mm open-end wrench, or adjustable wrench
CAUTION: The right pedal has right-hand threads and must be installed in the right crankarm, tightening in
a clockwise direction (4-B). The left pedal has left-hand threads and must be installed in the left crankarm, tightening
in a counter-clockwise direction (4-C). To avoid cross-threading, carefully start and tighten pedals by hand. Then tighten
securely with a 15mm wrench.
4-B
4-A
Pedals are marked “L” and
“R” on their spindles.

Insert left pedal into left
crankarm and turn counterclockwise.
5. SADDLE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
Require tool – 13mm or adjustable wrench
If the seat and seat post are not already installed, insert the seat post into the seat post tube.
WARNING: The seatpost may be raised or lowered for comfort, but it should never be raised above the
“minimum insertion line” marked on the seatpost.
5-A
To raise or lower seatpost,
loosen 13mm nut and retighten
when height is adjusted.
5-B
To determine proper saddle
height, position right pedal at the
bottom of its revolution, aligned
with the seat tube. While sitting
on saddle, place your heel on right
pedal. Your leg should be fully
extended (5-B).
5-C
Adjust saddle height if
necessary and repeat. Now
place the ball of your foot
directly over the center of the
pedal (normal riding position).
This should result in the
correct bend at the knee.

Generally, you do not want to raise your saddle higher than determined by this method. If you have to rock your hips to
reach the bottom of the pedal stroke, then your saddle is too high. However, if while riding your bicycle, this position
doesn’t feel comfortable to you, adjust as necessary.
6. ATTACH PADS
Attach pads to handlebar as shown (6-A). And ensure that the reflector is perpendicular to the ground.
