of useful facts on the proper use of your SCOTT bike, its maintenance and operation as well as interesting information on bike design and engineering. Read

Even a manual as detailed as an encyclopaedia could not describe every possible combination of available bicycle models and components. The translation
of these original SCOTT operating instructions therefore focuses on your newly
purchased SCOTT bike or SCOTT pedelec and standard components and provides useful information and warnings for the handling of your new SCOTT bike.
When doing any adjusting and servicing (a), be aware that the detailed instructions provided in your manual only refer to this SCOTT bike.
The information included here is not applicable to any other bicycle type. As
bicycles come in a wide variety of designs with frequent model changes, the
routines described may require complementary information. It is essential to
also observe the manuals of the component manufacturers and the system
instructions of your drive manufacturer on this SCOTT info CD.
Be aware that these instructions may require further explanation, depending on
the experience and/or skills of the person doing the work. For some jobs you
may require additional (special) tools (b) or supplementary instructions. This
manual cannot teach you the skills of a bicycle mechanic.
NOTE!
his SCOTT info CD includes the manuals of the component manufacturers,
T
the system instructions of your drive manufacturer as well as the relevant
web links.

Before you set off, let us point out a few things to you that are very important to
every cyclist: Never ride without a properly adjusted helmet and without glasses
(c). Make sure to wear suitable, bright clothing. As a minimum you should wear
straight cut trousers and or leg bands and shoes fitting the pedal system (d).
Always ride carefully on public roads and observe the traffic rules so as not to
endanger yourself or others.
ENGLISH
ENGLISH
Therefore, before setting off on your new SCOTT bike, you should read at least
the chapter “Tests before your first ride”. To ensure as much fun and safety as
possible during cycling, be sure to carry out the functional check described in
the chapter “Tests before every ride” before setting off on your SCOTT bike.
This manual cannot teach you how to ride. Be aware that cycling is a potentially
dangerous activity that requires the rider to stay in control of his or her SCOTT
bike at all times. When setting off on a SCOTT pedelec, keep in mind that the
drive boosts your cycling speed. If necessary, attend a beginners course for
cyclists or pedelec riders, as already offered here and there.
Like any sport, cycling involves the risk of injury and damage. By choosing to
ride a bike, you assume the responsibility for the risk. Note that on a bike you
have no protection technique around you like you have in a car (e.g. bodywork,
ABS, airbag). Therefore, always ride carefully and respect the other traffic participants.
Never ride under the influence of drugs, medication, alcohol or when you are
tired. Do not ride with a second person on your SCOTT bike and never ride without having both hands on the handlebars.
Observe the legal regulations concerning off-road cycling and public roads.
These regulations may differ in each country.
Respect nature when riding through the forest and in the open countryside.
Only use your bike on signposted, well maintained trails and hard-surface roads
(e).
Always bear in mind that you travel rapidly and quietly when you are riding
a SCOTT pedelec. Do not startle pedestrians or other cyclists. Always make
others aware of your presence well ahead of time and by ringing your bell (f) or
make use of the brakes so as to avoid accidents. Familiarize yourself with your
SCOTT pedelec.

Pedelecs
Pedelecs (pedal electric cycles) or EPACs (Electrically Power Assisted Cycles)
are bicycles with an auxiliary motor that only switches on when you move the
pedals. When you stop pedalling, the motor switches off.
A driving licence is not required for riding a SCOTT pedelec (d), if the motor
assistance switches off automatically at a speed of 25 kmh. You do not need an
operating licence and need not insure the pedelec either.
All regulations that apply to SCOTT bikes, also apply to SCOTT pedelecs, i.e.
using cycle paths is not compulsory. Wearing a helmet is recommended (e), but
not compulsory.
Make sure you do not confuse your SCOTT pedelec with a “SCOTT speed
pedelec” (see “Speed pedelecs”).
Most SCOTT pedelecs are designed for cycling exclusively on lanes and roads
with a smooth surface. Only use trails that are allowed for bicycles. Using SCOTT
trekking pedelecs off-road can result in crashes with unforeseeable consequences! Using SCOTT trekking pedelecs off-road is not permitted. For off-road
use only SCOTT off-road pedelecs are suitable.
Some SCOTT pedelecs have a pushing aid (f) which provides assistance during
pushing, even without pedalling, up to a speed of 6 kmh.
Your SCOTT pedelec is designed for a maximum overall weight, including rider,
luggage and SCOTT pedelec. The permissible overall weight is 150 kg / 330 lbs.

Most of the SCOTT speed pedelecs are designed for cycling exclusively on lanes
and roads with a smooth surface (c). Only use trails that are allowed for speed
pedelecs / e-bikes. Typical SCOTT speed pedelecs are generally not suitable for
off-road use. Using SCOTT speed pedelecs off-road can result in crashes with
unforeseeable consequences.
SCOTT speed pedelecs are regarded as motor vehicles, have an operating
licence or EU type approval and are therefore subject to strict regulations relating to the replacement of components and to changes. Modifications without
approval/type approval result in an expiration of the operating licence, i.e. the
SCOTT pedelec must no longer be used on public roads.
Your SCOTT speed pedelec is designed for a maximum overall weight, including rider, luggage and SCOTT speed pedelec. The overall weight is 150 kg /
330 lbs.
Check in the country where you use your SCOTT speed pedelec whether you
require a moped licence or a driving licence for motor vehicles.
G
H
You can obtain a moped licence if you are aged 15 or over. Inform yourself at
your driving licence agency.
Inform yourself in the country where you use your SCOTT speed pedelec about
the regulations on the use of speed pedelecs on cycle lanes in built-up areas, on
lanes which are marked with a road sign allowing access for mopeds, on cycling
one-way streets in the opposite direction, even when they are allowed to bikes
and on the use of roads which are closed for motor vehicles, motor cycles and
mopeds.
Inform yourself in the country where you use your SCOTT speed pedelec
whether wearing a helmet (b) is compulsory. A standard cycling helmet will do.
Also read the chapter “Useful facts for riding a SCOTT speed pedelec”.
ENGLISH
ENGLISH
Speed pedelecs
Speed pedelecs are bicycles with an auxiliary motor (a) which provides assistance to the rider even beyond a speed of 25 kmh, as long as you continue pedalling. The pedal-assist stops at a speed of 45 kmh. Without pedalling a SCOTT
speed pedelec provides assistance to a maximum speed of 20 kmh.
DANGER!
Be sure to use your SCOTT bike only for its intended purpose, as it may
otherwise not withstand the stress and fail. Risk of falling!
DANGER!
o not modify your SCOTT pedelec or SCOTT speed pedelec; this applies

NOTE!
Your new bike is equipped with modern brakes which may be far more powerful than those you were used to so far. Be sure to first practise using the
brakes on a level, non-slip surface off public roads! Slowly approach higher
brake performances and speeds.
For more information see the chapter “Brakes” and the manuals of the component manufacturers on this SCOTT info CD.
3. Are you familiar with the type and functioning of the gears (d)? Ask your
SCOTT dealer to explain you the gear system and make yourself familiar with
your new gears in an area free of traffic, if necessary.
For more information see the chapter “Gears” and the manuals of the component manufacturers on this SCOTT info CD.
4.Are saddle and handlebars properly adjusted? The saddle should be set to
a height from which you can just reach the pedal in its lowest position with
your heel. The hips should remain horizontal. Check whether your toes reach
to the floor when you are sitting on the saddle (e) (exception: full suspension
SCOTT bikes). Your SCOTT dealer will be pleased to help you, if you are not
happy with your seating position.
For more information see the chapter “Adjusting the SCOTT bike to the rider”.
5. If your SCOTT bike is equipped with clipless or step-in pedals (f): Have you
ever tried cycling with the respective cycling shoes? First practise locking
one shoe onto a pedal and disengaging it while standing on the other leg.
Ask your SCOTT dealer to explain you the pedals and to adjust them to your
needs.

ENGLISH
ENGLISH
2. The rechargeable battery of your SCOTT pedelec must be charged before you set off for the first time (a). Are you familiar with the handling and
mounting of the rechargeable battery? Before you set off for the first time,
check whether the battery is properly mounted, that it has engaged audibly
and that it is locked (b).
DANGER!
Charge your battery only with the supplied charger. Do not use the charger
of any other manufacturer, not even when the connector of the charger
matches your rechargeable battery. The rechargeable battery can heat up,
catch fire or even explode!
H
DANGER!
Do not park your SCOTT pedelec in the blazing sun.
H
H
DANGER!
Remove the rechargeable battery or the display before doing any work
on your pedelec (e.g. servicing, repairs, assembly, maintenance, work on
your drive etc.) (f). Activating the drive systems unintentionally bears the risk of
injury!
DANGER!
DANGER!
Be sure to use your SCOTT pedelec only for its intended purpose, as it may
otherwise not withstand the stress and fail. Risk of falling!
H
H
DANGER!
When mounting your SCOTT pedelec, make sure not to step on the pedals until you sit in the saddle and grip the handlebars tightly, and that one
pedal is at the lowest position when you get on (e). The motor assistance might
switch on suddenly and result in an uncontrolled start of your SCOTT pedelec.
Risk of falling!
DANGER!
The weight distribution on your SCOTT pedelec differs markedly from the
weight distribution on bikes without drive assistance. A SCOTT pedelec is
markedly heavier than a SCOTT bike without drive assistance. For this reason
parking, pushing, lifting and carrying the SCOTT pedelec is more difficult. Bear
this in mind when loading your pedelec into a car and unloading it or when
mounting it on a bicycle carrier system.
H
DANGER!
Be aware that the brakes of your SCOTT pedelec are always more effective
than the drive. If you face any problems with your drive (e.g. because it
pushes you forward in front of a bend), slow down your SCOTT pedelec carefully.
H
Pull the brake lever of the rear brake and stop pedalling. The pedelec will
stop. Emergency stop! To achieve the shortest possible stopping distance
brake with both brakes in a way that the pedelec slows down gradually (see
chapter “Brakes”).

Note that not all SCOTT pedelecs are fitted with kickstands. Therefore,
when parking your SCOTT pedelec, make sure it stands safe and secure
and is not at risk of toppling over or being knocked over. If your SCOTT pedelec
topples over, it can suffer from damage.
TESTS BEFORE EVERY RIDE
Your SCOTT bike has undergone numerous tests during production and a final
check has been carried out by your SCOTT dealer. Nevertheless, be sure to
check the following points to exclude any malfunctioning that may be due to
the transport of your SCOTT bike or to changes a third person may have performed on your SCOTT bike before delivery:
a
28
3. Spin the wheels to check whether the rims are true. If you have disc brakes,
watch the gap between frame and rim or tyre and, if you have rim brakes,
between brake pad and rim (c). Untrue rims can be an indication of tyres with
ruptured sides or broken spokes.
For more information see the chapter “Wheels and tyres” and the manuals of
the component manufacturers on this SCOTT info CD.
4.Test the brakes in stationary by firmly pulling the brake levers towards the
handlebars (d). The brake pads of rim brakes must hit the rim evenly with
their entire surface without touching the tyre during braking, in open condition or in between.
You should not be able to pull the lever all the way to the handlebars. If your
bike has hydraulic brakes, check the hydraulic brake cables for oil or brake
fluid leaks! Check the thickness of the brake pads, as well.
With disc brakes you should have a stable pressure point at once. If you have
to actuate the brake lever more than once to get a positive braking response,
have the SCOTT bike checked by your SCOTT dealer immediately.
For more information see the chapter “Brakes” and the manuals of the component manufacturers on this SCOTT info CD.
1. Are the quick-release levers (a) of the front and rear wheel properly closed
and the bolts of the seat post and other components accurately tightened?
5. Let your SCOTT bike bounce on the ground from a small height (e). If there
is any rattling, check where it comes from. Check the bearings and bolted
connections, if necessary. Tighten them slightly, if necessary.
For more information see the chapter “Using quick-releases” and the manuals
of the component manufacturers on this SCOTT info CD.
6.In case you have a SCOTT bike with suspension, press down on your SCOTT
bike and see whether the spring elements retract and extend as usual (f).
2. Are the tyres in good condition and do they have sufficient pressure (b)? The
minimum and maximum pressure (in bar or PSI) is indicated on the tyre side.
For more information see the chapter “Wheels and tyres” and the manuals of
the component manufacturers on this SCOTT info CD.

8. Do not forget to take a high quality D- (b) or chain lock with you on your ride.
The only way to effectively protect your SCOTT bike against theft is to lock it
to an immovable object.
9. If you want to ride on public roads, make sure your SCOTT bike is equipped
according to the applicable regulations of your country (c). Riding without
lights and reflectors in dark or dim conditions is very dangerous because
you will be seen too late or not at all by other road users. A set of lights that
corresponds to the regulations is a must on public roads. Turn on the lights as
soon as dusk sets in.

During use your SCOTT bike is undergoing stress resulting from the surface
of the road and from the rider’s action. Due to these dynamic loads, the
different parts of your bike react with wear and fatigue. Check your SCOTT
bike regularly, i.e. according to the SCOTT service and maintenance schedule,
for wear marks, scratches, deformations, colour changes and any indication
of cracking. Components which have reached the end of their service life may
break without previous warning. Let your SCOTT dealer maintain and service
your SCOTT bike regularly, i.e. according to the SCOTT service and maintenance
schedule. In cases of doubt it is always best to replace components.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION “TESTS BEFORE EVERY RIDE” WITH
YOUR SCOTT PEDELEC
1. Are the connections of the rechargeable battery, the control unit or the command console and the drive (d) correctly plugged?
For more information see the system instructions of your drive manufacturer
on this SCOTT info CD.
2. Is your battery fully charged? Remember to fully recharge the battery after
each longer ride (e.g. less than 50% charged). SCOTT uses modern lithium-ion batteries. These have no memory effect. It does not matter, if your
SCOTT pedelec is left as it is for a short time (e.g. during a break) when less
than 50% charged (e). However, you should not wait until the battery is fully
discharged!
For more information see the system instructions of your drive manufacturer
on this SCOTT info CD.
3. Do the display on the control unit (f) and the cycle computer on the handlebars show all the values? Is there any error message or warning on the
display? Check the values are correct before every ride. Do not set off on

D
down-hill ride, you may burn your fingers! Always let the brake disc cool
down before opening the quick-release.
G
Safe fastening of a component with a quick-release
Open the quick-release. You should now be able to read “Open“ (b) on the lever.
Make sure the component to be fastened is in the accurate position.
For more information see the chapters “Adjusting the SCOTT bike to the rider”
and “Wheels and tyres” and the manuals of the component manufacturers on
this SCOTT info CD.
Move the lever back, as if to close it. Now you should be able to read ”Close“ on
the outside of the lever. When you start closing the lever you should feel virtually no resistance with your hand until the lever is at a right angle to the frame/
fork (c).
When continuing to close the lever the resistance you feel should increase significantly and towards the end even more strength is required to close the lever. Use
the ball of your thumb while your fingers pull on an immovable part, such as the
fork (d) or a rear stay, but not on a brake disc or spoke, to push it in all the way.
USING QUICK-RELEASES
Most SCOTT bikes are fitted with quick-releases to ensure fast adjustments,
assembly and disassembly. Be sure to check whether all quick-releases are tight
before you set off on your SCOTT bike. Quick-releases should be handled with
greatest care, as they affect your safety directly.
In its end position, the lever should be at a right angle to the quick-release axle
(e), i.e. it should not stand out. The lever should lie close to the frame or the fork
so that it cannot be opened accidentally. Make sure, however, that the lever is
easy to handle for actual quick use.
Practise the proper use of quick-releases to avoid any accidents.
To check whether the lever is securely locked apply pressure to the end of the
hand lever and try to turn it while it is closed (f). If you can turn the lever around,
open it and increase the preload. Screw the tightening nut on the opposite side
clockwise by half a turn. Close the quick-release lever and check it again for
tightness.
Quick-release retention mechanisms essentially consist of two operative elements (a):
1. The hand lever on one side of the hub which creates a clamping force via a
cam when you close it.
2. The tightening nut on the other side of the hub with which the preload on the
threaded rod (quick-release axle) is set.

4.Is the battery tight in its holder and the lock properly locked up? Never set off
with a loose and unlocked battery.

Finally lift the bike a few centimetres, so that the wheel no longer touches the
ground and hit the tyre from above. If it is properly fastened, the wheel will
remain firmly fixed in the drop-outs of the frame or fork without producing any
rattling.

DANGER!
Make sure the levers of both wheel quick-releases are always on the side
opposite to the chain. This will help you to avoid mounting the front wheel
accidentally the wrong way round. In the case of SCOTT bikes with disc brakes
and quick-releases having a 5-mm-axle, it may be reasonable to mount both
quick-releases with the lever on the side of the chain drive. This helps you not
to come into contact with the hot brake disc and prevents you from having
your fingers burnt. If you are in doubt or if you have any questions, contact your
SCOTT dealer.

To be on the safe side you can replace the quick-releases by special locks.
They can only be opened and closed with a special, coded key or an Allen
key. If you are in doubt or if you have any questions, contact your SCOTT dealer.

ADJUSTING THE SCOTT BIKE TO THE RIDER
Your body height and proportions are decisive for the frame size of your
SCOTT bike. Make particularly sure there is enough space between your
crotch and the top tube so that you do not hurt yourself, if you have to get off
your bike quickly (b).
ENGLISH
ENGLISH
If your seat post is equipped with a quick-release mechanism, check whether
the saddle is firmly fixed by trying to twist it relative to the frame (a).
By choosing a specific type of bicycle you roughly determine the posture you
will be riding in (c+d). However, some components of your SCOTT bike are
especially designed so that you can adjust them to your body proportions up to
a certain degree.
This includes the seat post, the handlebars and the stem as well as the brake
levers.
As all works require know-how, experience, suitable tools (e) and skills, you
should restrict yourself to adjusting your seating position. Contact your SCOTT
dealer, if you are not happy with your seating position or if you want something
changed. They will see to your wishes the next time you leave your SCOTT bike
at the workshop, e.g. for the first inspection.
After any adjustment/assembly work, be sure to make a short functional check
as described in the chapter “Tests before every ride” and do a test ride on your
SCOTT bike in an area free of traffic (f).
DANGER!
If you have a very small frame, there may be the danger of your foot colliding with the front wheel. Therefore, make sure your cleats are properly
adjusted.
g
DANGER!
All tasks described in the following require the know-how of a mechanic
and appropriate tools. Make it a rule to tighten the bolted connections
always with greatest attention. Increase the torque values bit by bit and check
the fit of the component in between. Use a torque wrench and never exceed the
maximum torque values! You will find the prescribed values in the chapter “Recommended torque settings for your SCOTT bike”, directly on the components
and/or in the manuals of the component manufacturers on this SCOTT info CD.

he seating position depends highly on how you want to use the SCOTT
T
bike. Ask your SCOTT dealer or your trainer for help. The advice given below is suitable for typical SCOTT city, trekking and urban bikes.
I
NOTE!
If sitting on the saddle causes you trouble, e.g. because it numbs your
crotch, this may be due to the saddle. Your SCOTT dealer has a very wide
range of saddles available and will be pleased to advise you.
I
ADJUSTMENT OF THE SADDLE TO THE CORRECT HEIGHT
The correct saddle height depends on the length of your legs. When pedalling,
the ball of your foot should be positioned above the center of the pedal axle.
With your feet in this position you should not be able to stretch your legs completely straight at the lowest point (a), otherwise your pedalling will become
awkward.
Check the height of your saddle with flat-soled shoes. This is best done with
suitable cycling shoes.
Sit on the saddle and put your heel on the pedal at its lowest point. Your leg
should be fully stretched and your hips should remain horizontal.
To adjust the saddle height loosen the quick-release lever (see the chapter “Using quick-releases“) or the binder bolt of the seat post clamp at the top of the
seat tube (b).
The latter requires suitable tools, e.g. an Allen key, with which you turn the bolt
two to three turns anticlockwise. Now you can perform the vertical adjustment
of the seat post.
Be sure not to pull out the seat post too far. The mark on the seat post (max.,
min., stop or the like) should always remain within the seat tube (c). Always
grease the surface of an aluminium or titanium seat post that is inserted into a
seat tube made of aluminium, titanium or steel. Do not grease carbon seat posts
and/or carbon seat tubes in the clamping area! Use special carbon assembly
paste instead.
a

TREKKING-PEDELEC | ORIGINAL OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS 2016
Align the saddle with the frame by using the saddle nose and the bottom
bracket or top tube as a reference point (d). Clamp the seat post tight again by
closing the quick-release, as described in chapter “Using quick-releases” or by
turning the seat post binder bolts clockwise in half turns or better in steps of 0.5
Nm increments starting at 3 Nm. You should not need much strength in your
hands to clamp the seat post sufficiently tight. Otherwise the seat post does not
match the frame.
ENGLISH
ENGLISH
NOTE!
Verify in between that the seat post is sufficiently tight by taking hold of the
saddle at both ends and then trying to rotate the seat post inside the seat tube
(e). If it does rotate, gently retighten the binder bolt of the seat post clamp by
half a turn or better by a quater turn or in steps of 0.5 Nm increments and do
the check again.
Does the leg stretch test now produce the correct result? Check by moving your
foot and pedal to the lowest point. When the ball of your foot is exactly above
the pedal center in the ideal pedaling position, your knee should be slightly
bent. If this is the case, the saddle height is adjusted to the correct height.
Check whether you can touch the ground safely while sitting on the saddle by
stretching your feet to the floor. If not, you should lower the saddle until you
can, at least to begin with.
DANGER!
Never apply grease or oil into a seat tube of a frame made of carbon unless
an alloy sleeve is inside the frame. If you mount a carbon seat post, do not
put any grease on it, even if the frame is made of metal. Once greased, carbon
components may never again ensure reliable clamping! Use special carbon
assembly paste instead (f).

Never ride your bike with the seat post drawn out beyond the limit, maximum, or stop mark! The seat post might break or cause severe damage to
the frame. In the case of frames with seat tubes that extend beyond the top of
the frame’s top tube the seat post should be inserted into the seat tube at least
below the bottom of the top tube and below the top of the rear stays! If seat
post and frame require different minimum insertion depths, you should opt for
the deeper insertion depth.
G
CAUTION!
If the seat post does not move easily inside the seat tube or if it cannot be
tightened sufficiently, ask your SCOTT dealer for advice. Do not use brute
force!

ADJUSTMENT OF THE HEIGHT OF THE HANDLEBARS
The height of the handlebars compared to the saddle and the distance between
saddle and handlebars determine how much your upper body will be inclined
forward. Lowering the handlebars gives you a streamlined position and brings
more weight to bear on the front wheel. However, it also entails an extremely
forward leaning posture which is tiring and less comfortable, because it increases the strain on your wrists, arms, back, upper body and neck.

responsibility for problems resulting from the use of non-SCOTT/SYNCROS
products. Make sure the handlebar/stem-combination is approved by the handlebar and/or stem manufacturer.
A
CAUTION!
Make sure the handlebar clamping area is free of sharp edges.
A
Handlebars with conventional stems allow limited vertical adjustment. This is
done by moving the stem up or down inside the fork steerer tube (a).
Release the expander bolt by two to three complete turns. The stem should
now turn freely inside the fork. If it does not, release the bolt by tapping it gently
with a rubber hammer (b). With Allen bolts, you need to stick the Allen key into
its head first, as it is normally countersunk and therefore impossible to be hit
directly.
Now you can move the handlebar/stem-unit up and down as a whole. Be sure
not to pull out the stem too far. The mark on the stem (end, min, max, stop, limit
or the like) should always remain within the tube. Setting the stem to a lower
position can only add to your safety!
Realign the handlebars with the front wheel (c). Make sure the front wheel is in
alignment with the handlebars and the stem. Retighten the expander bolt with a
torque wrench.
Tighten carefully by approaching the prescribed maximum torque value in small

Stems for threadless systems – Aheadset®
In the case of SCOTT bikes with Aheadset® headsets the stem also serves to
adjust the bearing preload. If you change the position of the stem, you have to
readjust the bearing play (see the chapter “The headset on the SCOTT bike” and
the manuals of the component manufacturers on this SCOTT info CD).
The vertical setting range is determined by the intermediate rings, also referred
to as spacers (a). In the case of flip-flop stem models (b) the stem can be
mounted the other way round to achieve a different handlebar height.
For modifications unscrew the bolt at the top of the fork steerer tube which
serves to adjust the initial bearing pressure, remove the Ahead cap (c) and release the bolts on either side of the stem by up to three turns. Remove stem and
spacers from the fork steerer tube. In doing so keep hold of both frame and fork
to prevent the fork from slipping off the head tube.
You can determine the handlebar height by the arrangement of stem and spacers. Slip the remaining spacers onto the fork steerer tube above the stem. Adjust the headset, as described in the chapter “The headset on the SCOTT bike“.

NOTE!
The manufacturers of saddles deliver their products with detailed manuals.
You find these manuals on this SCOTT info CD. Read them carefully before
adjusting the position of your saddle. If you are in doubt or if you have any questions, contact your SCOTT dealer.
The inclination of your upper body (a), and hence your riding comfort and
pedalling power, are also influenced by the distance between the grips of the
handlebars and the saddle. This distance can be altered slightly by changing the
position of the saddle rails in the seat post clamp. However, this also influences
your pedaling. Whether the saddle is positioned more to the front or to the back
of the bike will alter how rearward the pedalling position of your legs is.
I
Make sure the saddle is clamped within the range of the marking on the saddle
rail, i.e. on the straight part of the rail, never in the curved sections.
With patent seat posts (d) one or two bolts fix the clamping mechanism, which
controls the tilt and the horizontal position of the saddle. Some seat posts have
two bolts side-by-side.
You need to have the saddle horizontal in order to pedal in a relaxed manner.
If it is tilted, you will constantly have to lean against the handlebars to prevent
yourself from slipping off the saddle.
DANGER!
The bolted connections of the seat post have to be tightened to the prescribed torque values (b). Use a torque wrench and never exceed the maximum torque values! You will find the prescribed values in the chapter “Recommended torque settings for your SCOTT bike”, directly on the components and/

DANGER!
The setting range of the saddle is very small. Replacing the stem allows you
to make far bigger adjustments to the rider’s fore-to-aft position, as stems

Brake lever reach adjustment on SCOTT city, trekking, urban and kids’
bikes
With most brake systems the distance between the brake levers and the handlebar grips is adjustable. This gives in particular riders with small hands (a) the
convenience of bringing the brake levers closer to the handlebars.
On most bikes there is a small adjusting screw near the point where the brake
cable of a cable brake enters the brake lever unit or at the lever itself. Turn this
bolt clockwise (b) and watch how the lever adjusts as you do so. Note that the
brake lever has a free travel of one third before the pressure point of the brake is
reached.
Hydraulic brakes are also fitted with adjusting devices at the brake lever. There
are different systems. Ask your SCOTT dealer for advice or read the manuals of
the component manufacturers on this SCOTT info CD.
When adjusting the lever reach, make sure the first phalanx of the index finger
reaches around the brake lever (c). Check the proper adjustment and functioning of the brake system subsequently, as described in the chapter “Brakes” and
in the manuals of the component manufacturers on this SCOTT info CD.

slots of the stem are parallel and identical in width (e).
Tighten the bolts evenly and in a cross pattern (f), i.e. alternately and gradually,
to the lower value of the recommended torque values using a torque wrench.
Once clamped in the stem try rotating the handlebars and tighten the bolt a
little more, if necessary. Use a torque wrench and never exceed the maximum
torque values! You find them directly on the components and/or in the manuals
of the component manufacturers on this SCOTT info CD. If the handlebars are
not tight with the prescribed torque value, use carbon assembly paste.

Check whether the back of your hand forms a straight line with the line of your
forearm (a). Retighten the units with a torque wrench and do a twist test! The

when the brake levers can be turned.
GLOSSARY
Suspension fork (c)
Bicycle fork absorbing and damping shocks through moving components. The
most common among these forks are the telescopic suspension forks (d). What
is designated as stanchion tubes are the thinner tubes press fitted or screwed
to the fork crown of a telescopic fork. What is designated as lower leg are the
lower tubes in which the stanchion tubes slide in.
Spring rate or hardness
The force that is required to compress the spring by a certain suspension travel
– measured in Newton per millimetre (N/mm) or pound per inch (lbs/in). A
higher spring rate requires more force for the travel. With air springs a higher
rate means a higher pressure (e).
Spring preload
In the case of the widespread air suspension systems, the air pressure in the fork
is crucial for the spring rate and the spring preload. Observe your manufacturer’s recommendations.
Within a certain range a preload can be applied to the coil springs. Then the
suspension only reacts when a greater load is applied. The spring rate remains,
however, unaltered. Heavier riders cannot compensate a too soft spring rate
with a higher initial tension.
Negative suspension travel (“sag”) (f)
The suspension travel that is taken up by the rear structure or the fork when the
rider takes up his or her usual riding position at a standstill. This is usually specified as a percentage of the overall suspension travel.
CAUTION!
If you want to mount multi-position handlebars or bar ends to the aluminium or carbon handlebars of your SCOTT bike, inform yourself in advance
whether these components are permitted on your SCOTT bike. If necessary,
contact your SCOTT dealer before mounting.

Lockout (b)
In most cases a lever on the suspension element or the handlebars.
A device to block the fork so that the suspension element does not cause bob
when riding on tarred roads or smooth surfaces. Not to be used off road.
FRONT SUSPENSION
Most of the SCOTT city, trekking bikes and SCOTT pedelecs have suspension
forks. This feature gives you better control of your SCOTT bike when riding
cross-country or on rough road surfaces and ensures more ground contact for
the tyre. It noticeably reduces the strain on you and your bicycle caused by the
mechanical shocks from the terrain.
Suspension forks differ in their types of spring elements and damping. Suspension forks normally work with air spring elements or less often with coil springs.
Damping is usually done by oil.
NOTE!
Suspension fork manufacturers normally include instructions with their
deliveries. Read them carefully before changing any settings or doing any
maintenance work on your suspension fork. You can find the instruction of the
suspension fork manufacturer on this SCOTT info CD.
I
NOTE!
For more information see the suspension glossary heading this chapter.
I
Adjusting the spring rate
To work perfectly, the suspension fork has to be adjusted to the weight of the
rider, the sitting posture and the intended use. Be sure to have this adjustment
carried out by your SCOTT dealer at the time of delivery.
a
52
b
c
TREKKING-PEDELEC | ORIGINAL OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS 2016
Note in general that the suspension fork must give in a little even when you
are just sitting on the bike (c) – this is the so-called negative suspension travel
or sag. When the front wheel passes through a depression in the ground, the
spring extends and the suspension fork will smooth out the uneven surface. If
the air pressure or the spring preload is too high, this effect is lost because the
suspension fork is already fully extended. This means that an important comfort
and safety factor is lost if the tyre briefly loses contact with the ground.
ENGLISH
ENGLISH
Rebound damping
In most cases a red adjusting knob. (a)
The damping which controls the rate at which the forks extend after being compressed. Prevents bike bobbing.
The suspension fork should yield by 10-20 % of the maximum suspension travel.
To measure the travel you can use the rubber ring (d) mainly located on the
thinner, plunging tube of the suspension fork. If there is no rubber ring, tie up
a cable tie around one of the stanchion tubes. Make sure it is not too tight, you
should still be able to move it, it should however not slip by itself.
Put on your usual riding clothing (including if necessary a packed rucksack),
sit on your bike and bring yourself into the usual riding position. Lean against a
fixed object (railings, wall etc.) and make sure you do not fall over. Ask a helper
to move the rubber ring or the cable tie downwards against the dust seal at the
lower leg.
Get off your SCOTT bike so that the fork does not compress any more. The distance between the rubber ring/cable tie and the wiper is the negative suspension travel, or sag (e). Compare it with the total suspension travel (as specified
by the manufacturer) to determine whether the suspension should be set to be
harder or softer.
With pneumatic suspension forks the spring rate is set by the air pressure in
the fork. The pressure must be set before the first ride by means of a special
high-pressure pump with pressure gauge (f) and modified later as required due
to changes in the weight of the rider and/or load.
Note the appropriate setting values and check them subsequently at regular
intervals. Always follow the recommendations of the manufacturer and never
exceed the maximum air pressure for the suspension fork. Always make a test
ride after each change to the settings.

When replacing any parts, be sure to only use parts that bear the appropriate
mark and, to be on the safe side, original spare parts. Your SCOTT dealer will be
pleased to help you.
Always make a test ride over roads with various surfaces after each change to
the settings (b).
Check afterwards the position of the rubber ring/cable tie. Its distance from the
wiper is the maximum suspension travel that you have used (c). If the rubber
o-ring/cable tie has moved a few millimetres only, your rear shock is too firm.
Reduce the air pressure of air sprung forks or the initial spring tension of coil
springs. If that brings no improvement, have the springs replaced.
If the rubber ring/cable tie has shifted over the entire length of the tube or if
the fork audibly bottoms out and hits the top repeatedly when riding on bad
roads, the setting of the springs is too soft. In the case of air-suspension forks
the pressure must be increased. In the case of steel coils, have them replaced by
your SCOTT dealer.
DANGER!
Suspension forks are designed in a way to absorb shocks. If the fork is too
rigid and jammed, the terrain-induced shocks pass directly into the frame
without any damping. The frame is normally not designed to withstand such
undamped stresses. If your suspension has a lockout mechanism, do not activate the lockout function when riding in rough terrain, but only when riding over
smooth terrain (roads) and on field tracks.
G
CAUTION!
NOTE!
In case of inquiries, contact your SCOTT dealer or follow the respective instructions in the manual of the suspension fork manufacturer on this SCOTT

ENGLISH
ENGLISH
In the case of most suspension forks with coil springs a preload can be applied
to the springs within tight limits by turning a knob at the top of the fork crown
(a). If that is not possible and the desired negative suspension travel (“sag”)
cannot be set, the coil springs must be replaced by harder or softer models. The
replacement is a job for the SCOTT dealer.
NOTE!
If you have found the desired setting, write down the ideal inflation pressure
for later checks.
I
Adjusting the damping control
The damping is adjusted by valves inside. When the oil is forced through these
valves this slows down the speed with which the suspension fork is extended or
compressed and prevents the suspension “bouncing” after hitting an obstacle.
In this way it is possible to optimise the bicycle’s reaction to obstacles.
Suspension forks with adjustable rebound damping have an adjusting knob
(mostly red) (d) to slow down or accelerate the rebound movement. If a second
(mostly blue) knob is available, the compression speed can be set and/or the
lockout function can be activated.
Start the adjusting with a completely open damping (rebound movement at “-“).
Take hold of the handlebars with both hands and pull the front brake. Lean with
your entire weight on the fork and remove your weight immediately (e). The
fork will extract at the same speed as you made it compress.
Turn the red adjusting knob in the direction ”+“ (f) until you hear a click. Compress the fork once again with the front wheel brake pulled and then remove the
weight abruptly once again. You will note that the fork extends more slowly.
Repeat the compression and the release by continuously turning the rebound
damping. You will get a feeling for the working of the rebound damping.
The suspension fork should be set up and adjusted in a way that it does not
reach the end of its travel, i.e. bottom out, unless in extreme cases. A spring
rate which is too soft (air pressure is too low) can usually be heard or felt as a
“clunk” type noise. This noise is caused by the sudden complete compression of
the suspension fork as it reaches bottom out. If the suspension fork frequently
reaches bottom out, it will fail over time, and so will the frame.

Ride over an obstacle (e.g. down a kerb) subsequently and turn the rebound
damping in small steps towards the “+”-setting. You have found the proper rebound setting when the suspension fork does not cycle more than once. Always
check a modified adjustment during a test ride on the surface of a road typically
used by you.
If you do not trust the setting of the damping or if problems occur with it, contact your SCOTT dealer or follow the corresponding instructions in the manual
of the suspension fork manufacturer, which you can find on this SCOTT info CD.

G
DANGER!
Do not turn any screws by using tools in the vague hope of adjusting them
somehow. You could be loosening the fastening mechanism, thus provoking
an accident. Normally, the adjustment devices are operated with the fingers and
are marked by all manufacturers with a scale or with “+” (for stronger damping/
harder suspension) and “-“ signs.
G
DANGER!
When mounting a new front tyre, make sure there is enough clearance
between tyre and fork crown as the fork compresses entirely. If necessary,
deflate the suspension fork completely and press the handlebars forcefully
downward to check this. The front wheel can get jammed. Risk of falling!
G
CAUTION!
Do not ride your bicycle, if the suspension fork bottoms out. This could
damage the suspension fork itself as well as the frame. The spring rate

The typical setting of the rebound damping is an extension of the suspension
components at reduced speed, however not at a sluggish pace. A rebound
movement at reduced speed ending up in a sluggish movement is definitely a
too high damping.
Lockout
When taking long uphill rides involving hard pedalling out of the saddle, a suspension fork is typically bobbing. It is advisable to lock the damping, if the suspension fork has a lockout mechanism (b). For downhill rides on uneven ground
the lockout mechanism must be open stringently (c).
CAUTION!
Do not actuate the lockout function when riding over field tracks, but only
when riding over smooth terrain (such as roads or field tracks) (d).
A
Maintenance
Suspension forks are components of sophisticated design that require regular
maintenance and care. This has led almost all suspension fork manufacturers
to establish service centres where you can have your forks thoroughly checked
and overhauled at regular intervals according to use, e.g. once a year.
The following routines are essential for maintenance:
1. Make sure the sliding surfaces of the stanchion tubes and the wiper rings are
absolutely clean.
2. Clean the suspension fork, if it is soiled, directly after the ride with plenty of
water and a soft sponge (e).
3. After washing your bike, spray the stanchion tubes of the suspension fork
with a little grease spray (f) approved by the manufacturer or apply a very
thin film of hydraulic oil. Compress the fork several times and wipe off excess
lubricant with a clean rag before you set off for your next ride.
d
e
ORIGINAL OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS 2016 | TREKKING-PEDELEC
f
57
5. If your suspension fork has steel coils, you should regularly have the coils
cleaned (b) and lubricated with a non-corrosive resin-free grease. Some fork
manufacturers provide special greases for fork maintenance. Strictly observe
the recommendations of the manufacturers. These are routines for the suspension fork service centre.
6.Suspension forks with pneumatic springs must be checked regularly for air
pressure (c), since the air escapes over time.
Suspension elements are of sophisticated design. The maintenance routines and
above all the disassembly of the suspension elements are jobs best left to your
SCOTT dealer or the fork manufacturer’s service centre.
CAUTION!
Suspension forks are constantly being sprayed with water and dirt from the
front wheel. Clean them with lots of water and a rag after every ride.

Suspension seat posts (d) enhance the cyclist’s comfort when riding on rough
ground. They can be used on roads and field tracks. The seat posts are usually
designed for a cyclist of average weight, i.e. 75 kilograms. Their shock-absorbing properties can be modified either by adjusting the spring preload and/or by
replacing the springs. Typically, for this purpose the seat post must be removed
from the frame. The adjustment is made by a bolt which is screwed into the seat
post at its lower end. Ask your SCOTT dealer to explain you the basic setting.
DANGER!
Be sure not to pull out the seat post too far. The mark on the seat post (e)
(end, min, max, stop, limit etc.) should always remain within the seat tube.

Brakes (a) are used for adjusting one’s speed to the surrounding terrain and
traffic. In an emergency situation, the brakes must bring your SCOTT bike to a
halt as quickly as possible.
In the event of such emergency brakings, the rider’s weight shifts forward
abruptly, thus reducing the load on the rear wheel. The rate of deceleration is
primarily limited by the danger of the rear wheel losing contact with the ground
(b), resulting in an overturning of the SCOTT bike and, secondly, by the grip of
the tyres on the road. Such a problem becomes particularly acute when riding
downhill. Therefore, in case of an emergency braking you should try to shift
your weight towards the rear and the ground as far as possible.
Actuate both brakes simultaneously (c) and bear in mind that, due to the weight
transfer, the front brakes can generate a far better braking effect on a surface
with good grip.
The braking conditions on unpaved surfaces and when it is wet or dirty differ,
i.e. overbraking the front wheel can make the wheel slip away.
Make yourself familiar with the operation before you set off for the first time.
Practise braking on different kinds of surfaces in an area free of traffic.
Wet weather reduces the braking power. Actuate the brakes carefully when
riding on wet or slippery ground, as the tyres can easily slip away. Therefore,
reduce your speed when riding in such conditions.
There are various types of brake systems that may be subject to the following
problems:
Too long braking or brake dragging can result in an overheating of the rim brakes
(d). This can damage the inner tube or make the tyre slip on the rim causing a
sudden loss of air which could lead to a serious accident in the process.
When riding downhill, get used to braking hard and then releasing the brake
again, whenever the road surface and the situation allows for it. If you are in
doubt about the braking action, stop and let the brake system cool down.

RIM BRAKES
Operation and wear
V-brake (a) and cantilever brake designs (b) have two brake arms mounted
separately on either side of the rim. When actuating the brake lever, both arms
are pressed together by the cable, the pads touching the rim.
The friction generated by braking causes wear to the brake pads as well as to
the rims. Frequent rides in the rain and dirt and on uneven ground can accelerate wear on both braking surfaces. Some rims are provided with wear indicators, e.g. grooves or circular indentations. If the rim is worn down to the point
where the grooves or indentations are no longer visible, they need to be replaced. Once the abrasion of the rim has reached a certain critical point, the rim
may break under the tyre pressure. This can make the wheel jam or the inner
tube burst, both of which can cause an accident. Risk of falling!
Functional check
Check whether the brake pads are accurately aligned with the rims and still
sufficiently thick. You can judge the wear of the brake pads by the appearance
of grooves.
If the pads are worn down to the bottom of the grooves (c), it is time to replace
them. Be sure to observe the appropriate instructions of the respective manufacturer.
See your SCOTT dealer and ask them to examine the remaining thickness of the
rims when you have worn through your second set of brake pads at the latest.
Your SCOTT dealer has special measuring devices for determining the remaining thickness of the rims.
The brake pads must hit the rim simultaneously, first touching it with the front
portion of their surface. At the moment of first contact the rear portion of the
pads should be a millimetre away from the braking surface. Viewed from the top
the brake pads form a “V“ with the trough pointing to the front (d). This setting
is to prevent the brake pads from screeching when applied.

the gap changes between brake pads and rim.
Adjust the spring in a way that the gaps are equal on either side with an unapplied brake and the brake pads touch the rim simultaneously during braking.
The position of the brake lever where the brake starts to act, also referred to as
pressure point, can be adjusted to the size of the hand as well as to individual
convenience by readjusting the brake cable. Make absolutely sure you cannot
pull the brake lever all the way to the handlebar grip. With an unapplied brake
the brake pads should not be too close to the rim sides, otherwise they could
drag along the rim during riding. Before making this adjustment, observe the
notes in the chapter “Brake lever reach adjustment”.

Operation and wear
Common hydraulic rim brakes consist of two brake assemblies that are mounted on the left and right side of the rim and are connected by an assembly plate
and, if necessary, by a brake booster (b).
Actuating the brake lever compresses the hydraulic pistons through oil pressure,
pushing the brake pads against the rims.
The friction generated by braking causes wear to the brake pads as well as to
the rims. Frequent rides in the rain and dirt and on uneven ground can accelerate wear on both braking surfaces. Some rims are provided with wear
indicators, e.g. grooves or circular indentations. If the rim is worn down to the
point where the grooves or indentations are no longer visible, they need to be

Operation and wear
The most striking feature of disc brakes (c) is their outstanding braking effect.
They respond a lot faster in wet conditions than rim brakes do and achieve their

the brake calliper (d), the rotor, the brake lines (hydraulic) or cables (mechanical) as well as the brake lever unit. Actuating the brake lever compresses the
hydraulic pistons through hydraulic pressure or mechanically, pushing the brake
pads against the rotor.

A heavily clogged brake can lead to squeaking noises during braking.
NOTE!
Only transport your SCOTT bike with wheels mounted or if dismounted with
safety locks. Pull the brake lever and secure it with a strong elastic strap,
when transporting your SCOTT bike with hydraulic disc brakes. This will prevent
air from entering the system.

Wear and maintenance
To a certain extent, wear of the brake pads can be compensated directly at the
brake lever. Unscrew the knurled lock nut on the bolt through which the cable
enters the grip (e) and then unscrew the bolt until the lever has the desired travel. Retighten the lock nut by taking care that the slot of the bolt does not face
upward or forward, as this would permit an unnecessarily high amount of water
or dirt to enter.
After readjusting check the functioning and make sure the brake pads do not
drag when releasing the brake lever and spinning the wheel.
Repeated readjustment at the brake lever makes the arm on the brake calliper
change its position. This can reduce braking power and result in a complete
brake failure in an extreme case. Risk of accident!
Some models offer further ways of adjusting the brakes directly at the brake
calliper (f), though this requires a certain amount of skill. Read the instructions
of the brake manufacturer on this SCOTT info CD carefully before adjusting
the brake. If you are in doubt or if you have any questions, contact your SCOTT
dealer.

ROLLER, DRUM AND BACK-PEDAL BRAKES
These types of brakes have an enclosed design; brake pads and surfaces inside
the hub body are largely protected against the influences of the weather. The
braking force is transmitted through cables from the levers to the brakes. As
rear brakes they are mostly connected to an internal gear hub (a) and sometimes they are operated by back pedalling.
With back-pedal brakes maximum braking force is achieved by stepping on one
of the pedals in its rearmost position with the cranks horizontal (b). With internal
gear hubs from SRAM braking power is increased when having shifted to a
lower gear.
The risk of overheating is particularly high with these brake systems. Brake
overheating occurs on prolonged (steep) downhill rides with permanent brake
dragging. Brake fading is a result thereof which, in extreme cases, can lead to
brake failure.

Checking and readjusting back-pedal brakes
The chain tension (e) of bicycles with back-pedal brakes has to be checked and
retensioned, if necessary, after approx. 1,000 km or 50 hours of use. For more
details read the chapter “Bicycle chain”.
DANGER!
Keep in mind that the back-pedal brake is ineffective with a fallen-off chain

Therefore, if you notice that the braking effect deteriorates, stop and let the
brake system cool down. Sometimes, it will be enough to operate the front and
rear brake in an alternating pattern. If that will not suffice, stop for a couple of
minutes before you set off again (c).

Operation and control
Derailleur gears always work according to the following principle:
DERAILLEUR GEARS
The gears of your SCOTT bike (a+b) serve to adjust the gear ratio to the terrain
you are riding on and the desired speed.
A low gear (where in the case of derailleur gears the chain runs on the small
chainring and a large sprocket) allows you to climb steep hills with moderate
pedalling force. You must, however, pedal at a faster pace. High gears (large
chainring, small sprocket) are for riding downhill. Every turn of the pedals takes
you many metres forward at correspondingly high speed.
DANGER!
ontinue pedalling at reduced cadence during gear shifting, however, at

clearly reduced pedalling force. In particular when shifting through the
chainrings continue pedalling slowly and without force.
G
DANGER!
With SCOTT pedelecs reduce the cadence and the pedalling force shortly before you start shifting. In doing so there is a short interruption of the
drive. If you continue pedalling, the high chain forces could result in a chain
failure.
H
CAUTION!
Practise switching gears in a place free of traffic until you are familiar with
the functioning of the levers or twist grips of your SCOTT bike.

NOTE!
SCOTT pedelecs have only one chainring. As a consequence there is no
front derailleur and no shifter on the left handlebars.

Normally, the shifters are mounted as follows:
Shift lever right – rear sprockets
Shift lever left – front chainrings
Modern SCOTT city/trekking bikes can have up to 30 gears. As there are, however, overlapping ranges, actually 15 to 18 gears are usable. It is not advisable to
use gears which involve an extremely oblique run of the chain, as this reduces
power transmission efficiency and hastens wear of the chain.
An unfavourable run of the chain is when the smallest chainring is used with
one of the two or three outermost (smallest) sprockets (c) or when the largest
chainring is used with one of the inmost (largest) sprockets (d).
The bottom bracket (e) is the interface between cranks and frame. There are
different designs, in some cases the bearing spindle is part of the bottom
bracket, in some other cases it is integrated into the right crank. Sealed bottom
brackets are maintenance free and delivered without play ex works. The bottom
bracket in the frame must be checked for play at regular intervals.
Also check at regular intervals whether the cranks are firmly attached to the
bearing spindle or whether there is play. Grab the crank and try to jiggle it forcefully. It must be absolutely free of play (f). If you notice any play, contact your
SCOTT dealer immediately.

Find below the principles of the shift lever types and their operation. It is, however, also possible that your new SCOTT bike has a gear system that is not listed
below.
With shift levers pressing the large shifter (b) (thumb shifter) normally moves
the chain towards the larger chainrings/sprockets.
That means that any gear shift with the right thumb produces a lower gear. This
is an indexed shifting system with the option of shifting several gears with one
action. Actuating the large thumb shifter on the left produces a higher gear.
Pulling the small lever (c) located in front of the handlebars from the rider’s
viewpoint and actuated with the index finger (index finger lever) shifts the chain
towards the smaller chainwheels/sprockets, i.e. on the right side to the higher
gears and on the left side to the lower gears.
NOTE!
Read in any case carefully the operating instructions of the gear manufacturer on this SCOTT info CD. Make yourself familiar with your new gears in
an area free of traffic, if necessary. If you are in doubt or if you have any questions, contact your SCOTT dealer.
I
The principle of twist grips (d) is slightly different. Turning the right-hand grip
towards you makes for a lower gear ratio, while the same movement on the left
produces a higher gear – and vice versa. The shifting direction may vary in this
case, as well.
DANGER!
lways wear straight-cut trousers or use trouser clips (e) or the like to make

ENGLISH
ENGLISH
Depending on the gear system, gear shifting is initiated by actuating a shift
lever, a brake and shift lever unit or by a short turn of the wrist with twist grips.
Continue pedalling during gear shifting (a), however, at reduced pedalling force.
DANGER!
Shifting gears under load, i.e. while pedalling hard, can make the chain slip.
At the front derailleur the chain may even slip off the chainrings and result in
an accident! At least the service life of the chain will be shortened considerably.

CAUTION!
Avoid gears which involve an extremely oblique run of the chain, as this will

CAUTION!
It is crucial when switching gears to continue pedalling smoothly and
without too much force. Do not shift under load, and in particular not at
the front derailleur, as this will shorten the service life of your chain considerably. Furthermore, this can lead to a chain-suck, i.e. the chain can get jammed
between chainstay and chainrings.
Checking and readjusting
The derailleur gears of your bike were carefully adjusted by your SCOTT dealer
before delivery. However, Bowden cables may stretch a little on the first kilometres, making gear shifting imprecise and the chain rattle.
Adjusting the front and rear derailleur (f) accurately is a job for an experienced
mechanic. If you want to try to do the adjustment on your own, observe in addition the manual of the gear manufacturer on this SCOTT info CD. If you have any
problems with the gears, contact your SCOTT dealer.

Adjusting the rear derailleur
Increase the tension of the Bowden cable by turning the adjustable cable stop
at the shifter lever (a) or the adjusting bolt through which it runs into the rear
derailleur (b). To do so, shift to the smallest sprocket and turn the bolts anticlockwise in half turns until the cable is slightly tensioned. After tensioning the
Bowden cable check whether the chain immediately climbs onto the next larger
sprocket. To find out you either have to turn the cranks by hand (c) or ride your
SCOTT bike and shift through the gears.
If the chain easily climbs onto the next larger sprocket, check whether it just as
easily shifts to the small sprockets. If it does not, release the respective adjusting
bolt a little. You may need several tries.

Adjusting the limit stops
If necessary, correct the position by means of the limit screws. The limit screws
on rear derailleurs are often marked “H” for high gear and “L” for low gear. High
gear means that the chain is running on the smallest sprocket. Turn the screw
clockwise to move the rear derailleur towards the wheel and anticlockwise to
move it away from the wheel (e).
ENGLISH
ENGLISH
NOTE!
Shift to the largest (inmost) sprocket and check whether the teeth of the
sprocket and the teeth of the guide pulley are all in a perfectly vertical line (f).
Turn the limit screw marked “L” clockwise until the rear derailleur stops moving
towards the spokes and can neither be moved by actuating the shift lever nor
by pushing it with your hand. Turn the cranks carefully.
This adjustment prevents the chain from getting stuck between sprocket and
spokes or the rear derailleur or the derailleur cage from touching the spokes,
which could result in damage to the spokes, the rear derailleur and the frame. In
the worst case, this could result in a fall or accident.
DANGER!
If your SCOTT bike has tipped over or the rear derailleur received a blow,
the rear derailleur or its mount, also referred to as the derailleur hanger,
might be bent. Risk of material failure and accident. It is advisable to check its
range of movement and readjust the limit screws, if necessary, after such an
incident or after mounting a new rear wheel on your bike.
g
CAUTION!
Do a test ride in a place free of traffic, after adjusting the gears of your

A
A
CAUTION!
Let your SCOTT dealer maintain and service your SCOTT bike regularly.
The rear derailleur is equipped with limit screws (d) which limit the movement
range of the derailleur, thus preventing the derailleur and chain from colliding
with the spokes or the chain from dropping off the smallest sprocket. The limit
screws are adjusted by your SCOTT dealer. They do not alter their position during normal use.

The range within which the front derailleur keeps the chain on the chainring
without itself touching the chain is very small. If the chain tends to jump off the
chainring, you will need to reduce the movement range in the same way as with
the rear derailleur, i.e. by turning the limit screws marked “H“ and “L“ (a). The
limit screws are adjusted by your SCOTT dealer. They do not alter their position
during normal use.
As with the rear derailleur, the cable of the front derailleur (b) is subject to
lengthening which leads to a reduced precision in gear changing. If necessary,
shift to the small chainring and increase the tension of the Bowden cable by
turning the adjusting bolt through which it passes at the entry to the gear shifter
(c).

MULTI-SPEED HUBS (INTERNAL GEAR HUBS)
Operation and control
The advantages of multi-speed hubs (d+e) are their enclosed design. Unlike derailleur gears the gear drive is within the hub body, only the primary ratio from
the chainring to the sprocket being outside. What is more, all the gears can be
shifted through with one gear shifter.

TREKKING-PEDELEC | ORIGINAL OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS 2016
Provided that it is serviced regularly, the drive chain has a comparatively longer
service life. And this applies even more if it is protected from the influences of
the weather by a sealed chain box.
ENGLISH
ENGLISH
Adjusting the front derailleur
With multi-speed hubs normally the power transmission and the gear ratio
adjustment is guaranteed via one or several planetary gears, depending on the
number of gears. To change gears the pedal force should be reduced shortly.
In contrast to derailleur gears, multi-speed hubs cannot only be combined
with manually actuated brakes (rim, drum, roller or disc brakes), but also with
back-pedal brakes (f) (roller or drum brakes) that are actuated by a reverse
rotation of the pedals. The best braking power is achieved with the pedals on a
horizontal level.
In the case of multi-speed hubs and gearbox shift systems “1” stands for the
first, lowest gear. The gears are shifted through one after the other, if possible
without turning the pedals, at least, however, at reduced pedal pressure. The
highest number stands for the highest gear.
NuVinci N360 gear hubs are designed to allow stepless shifting by means of a
twist grip within their range of gear ratio. With the NuVinci hub the force transmission is ensured by balls instead of toothed wheels. Make it a rule to shift only
while pedalling at reduced force.
With NuVinci the actual gear ratio is indicated to the cyclist on the display. If the
cyclist climbs uphill, the gear ratio is low, on level ground the gear ratio is high.
The H-Sync gear system integrates the NuVinci Harmony® gear hubs into the
Intuvia system of its Bosch drive. With H-Sync you can predefine your preferred
cadence (between 30 and 80 turns per minute). The drive readjusts automatically – both uphill as well as downhill. This allows you to always maintain your
preset cadence.

GATES BELT DRIVE
With the Gates belt drive (e) a carbon drive belt replaces the usual chain. This
works only in connection with a gear hub. The carbon drive belt is made of carbon fibres which reduces the weight significantly and requires less maintenance
by offering smoother running and comfort than a chain. In addition, the belt is
more resistant to corrosion and the influence of direct sunlight.
Maintenance and care
Thanks to the carbon fibre surface, the belt remains free of dirt. Therefore, it will
do to clean the belt with water, if necessary. The carbon drive belt needs neither
lubrication nor oiling.
Checking the belt tension
The optimum operation of the Gates belt drive requires the proper tension of
the belt (f). An unusually low tension can make the belt skip and thus affect the
performance. A too high tension of the belt will render the drive sluggish and
unnecessarily increase the wear of the belt and the bearings.
On SCOTT bikes with vertical drop-outs re-tensioning the belt is not necessary,
in case you need to replace a flat tyre.

BICYCLE CHAIN
Regular and correct lubrication of your bicycle chain ensures enjoyable riding
and prolongs its service life. It is not the quantity but the distribution and regular
application of lubricant that counts. Clean the dirt and oil off your chain with a
slightly oily rag from time to time (a). Special degreasers are not necessary; they
even have a damaging effect.
Having cleaned the chain as thoroughly as possible, apply chain oil, wax or
grease to the chain links (b). To lubricate the chain, drip the lubricant onto the
rollers of the lower run of the chain while you turn the crank. Once this is done,
turn the cranks a few more times; then let your SCOTT bike rest for a few minutes so that the lubricant can disperse. Finally wipe off excess lubricant with a
rag so that it does not spatter around during riding or can collect road dirt.
Although the chain is one of the wearing components of your SCOTT bike, there
are still ways for you to prolong its life. Make sure the chain is lubricated regularly, especially after riding in the rain. Try to only use gears which run the chain in
the straightest line between the sprockets and chainrings and get into the habit
of high cadence pedalling.
ENGLISH
CHAIN MAINTENANCE
NOTE!
Chains on bicycles with derailleur gears are worn out after approx. 1,000 to
3,500 km or 50 to 125 hours of use. Heavily stretched chains impair the operation of derailleur gears. Cycling with a worn-out chain also accelerates the
wear of the sprockets and chainrings. Replacing these components is relatively
expensive compared with the costs of a new chain. It is therefore advisable to
check the condition of the chain at regular intervals.
Your SCOTT dealer has accurate measuring instruments to check the chain
wear (c). Replacing the chain should ideally be left to an expert, as this requires
special tools. In addition, you need to select a chain matching your gear system
(d+e).
DANGER!
An improperly joined or heavily worn chain can break and cause an accident.

The wheel consists of the hub, the spokes and the rim. The tyre is mounted onto
the rim so that it encases the tube in the case of the most common system, i.e.
the clincher or folding tyres. There is a rim tape running around the rim well
(a) to protect the sensitive tube against the edges of the rim trough, which are
often sharp.
Another common system comprises tubeless tyres which require specific rims
without boreholes and firmly screwed valves.
The wheels are subjected to considerable stress through the weight of the rider
and any carried luggage as well as through bumpy road surfaces and terrain.
Although wheels are manufactured with great care and delivered accurately
trued, spokes and nipples can lose a little tension on the first kilometres. Ask
your SCOTT dealer to check and true up the wheels after you have bedded
them in over about 100 to 300 kilometres or 5 to 15 hours of use.
After the bedding-in period, check the wheels regularly. It will, however, rarely
be necessary to retighten the spokes (b).

If you want to mount a new tyre, you need to observe the sizing system and the
actual size of the old tyre. The latter is specified in two different units on the side
of the tyre. One of the sizes is the standardized size in millimetres which is more
precise, e.g. the number sequence 40-622 (d) means that the tyre is 40 mm in
width when fully inflated and has an inner tyre diameter of 622 millimetres. The
other size is indicated in inches (e.g. 28x1.5”).
ENGLISH
ENGLISH
WHEELS AND TYRES
Tyres must be inflated to the proper inflation pressure to provide an optimal
compromise between smooth running and riding comfort. Properly inflated
tyres are also more resistant to punctures. An insufficiently inflated tyre can
easily get pinched (“snakebite”) when it goes over a sharp kerb.
The air pressure recommended by the manufacturer is given on the side of the
tyre or on the type label (e). The lower of the two pressure specifications makes
for better cushioning for lightweight riders and is therefore best for cycling on
a rough surface. Rolling resistance on level ground decreases with growing
pressure, but so does comfort. Highly inflated tyres are therefore most suitable
for heavy riders and for riding on tarred roads. Therefore, adjust the pressure to
your weight and your riding habits.
Inflation pressure is often given in the old system of units, i.e. in psi (pounds per
square inch). The table (f) gives the most common pressure values in terms of
both systems.
Clincher and folding tyres and rim alone are not able to hold the air. Therefore,
an inner tube has to be placed inside the tyre to retain the air pressure.
Rims of clincher and folding tyres require in general a high-value rim tape over
the complete width of the rim base. This rim tape protects the inner tube from
the braking heat which could make the tyre burst.
DANGER!

Note that a pedelec weighs more and that your usual tyre pressure may be
insufficient. A higher pressure gives a better riding stability and reduces
the risk of a puncture. The minimum and maximum pressure (in bar or PSI) is
indicated on the tyre side.
H
VALVES
There are three valve types in general use on SCOTT city and trekking bikes:
1. Sclaverand or Presta valve (b): This valve is nowadays used on almost all
types of bikes. It is designed to withstand extremely high pressures.
2. Schrader or American valve (c): This is an adapted car tyre valve.
3.Dunlop or Woods valve (d): The usual valve.
With Presta valves you first have to undo the small knurled nut a little and depress it carefully until air starts to escape. Check the nut is tightened and seated
in its stem, otherwise air may slowly leak out. Do not forget to tighten the valve
by hand nut after inflating.
ENGLISH
ENGLISH
DANGER!
Tyres with Schrader valves can conveniently be inflated at car filling stations
with a compressed air dispenser. The same applies to Dunlop and Presta valves
fitted with a special adapter. A compressed air dispenser must be used very
carefully as you may otherwise overinflate the tyre and make it burst.
To let out air, press the needle in the centre of the Schrader valve or the knurled
nut of the Presta valve (e).
In the case of the Dunlop valve unscrew the knurled nut until air comes out of
the valve. Retighten the knurled nut subsequently. Normally, you have to inflate
the tyre completely.
It can be hard to inflate tyres to the necessary pressure by using hand pumps. It
is much easier with a track pump equipped with a pressure gauge.
RIM TRUENESS AND SPOKE TENSION
For the true running of the wheel it is imperative that the tension exerted by
the spokes is distributed evenly around the rim. If the tension of a single spoke
changes, e.g. as a result of riding fast over a kerb or of a loose nipple, the tensile
forces acting on the rim become unbalanced and the wheel will no longer run
true. The functioning of the SCOTT bike may even be impaired before you notice the wobbling appearance of a wheel that has gone out of true.
With rim brakes the sides of the rims also serve as braking surfaces. An untrue
wheel can impair your braking effect. It is therefore advisable to check the
wheels for trueness from time to time. For this purpose lift the wheel off the
ground and spin it with your hand. Watch the gap between the rim and the
brake pads. If the gap varies by one millimetre or more, you should ask your
SCOTT dealer to true up the wheel (f).
All valve types come with a plastic cap to protect them from dirt. The Schrader
and Dunlop valve can be inflated with a suitable pump directly after removing
the protective cap.

Do not ride with untrue wheels. In the case of extreme side-to-side wobbles, the brake pads of rim brakes can miss the rim and get caught in the
spokes! This normally instantly jams the wheel and throws you off your bicycle.
G
CAUTION!
Loose spokes must be tightened at once. Otherwise the load on the other
spokes and the rim will increase.
A
A
CAUTION!
Truing (retruing) wheels is a difficult job which you should definitely leave
to your SCOTT dealer.
If you have disc brakes (hydraulic or mechanic), check the position of the brake
pads through the inspection window. In this way you will be able to tell after
the removal whether the brake pads are still in their correct position. Read the
manual of the brake manufacturer on this SCOTT info CD.
ENGLISH

DANGER!
If you have derailleur gears, you should shift the chain to the smallest sprocket
before removing the rear wheel (d). This shifts the rear derailleur right to the
outside where it does not interfere with the removal of the wheel. Open the
quick-release of the wheel, as described in chapter “Using quick-releases”.
If you cannot remove the wheel after releasing the nuts, this is due to the dropout safety tabs. They come as metal catches which engage with recesses in the
drop-outs (e). Just release the quick-release adjusting nut a little and slip the
wheel past the tabs.
You will find it easier to remove the rear wheel, when you pull the rear derailleur
slightly backwards. Lift your SCOTT bike a little off the ground and give the
wheel a light blow with your hand so that it drops out.
REPAIRING TYRE PUNCTURES
Punctures during cycling are the most common cause for flat tyres. However,
as long as you have the necessary tools and a spare tube or a repair kit (a),
this need not mean the end of your cycle ride. If your wheels are attached with
quick-releases to the frame and the fork, you only need two tyre levers and a
pump (b).
NOTE!
efore removing a wheel, read chapters “Remounting the wheel” and “UsB
ing quick-releases”. If you are in doubt or if you have any questions, contact
your SCOTT dealer.

REMOVING THE WHEEL
DANGER!
Rotors can become hot, so let them cool down before removing a wheel.
G
G
DANGER!
If you purchased a SCOTT bike with hydraulic disc brakes, never turn your
SCOTT bike upside down for repair work, i.e. with the handlebars and saddle underneath, otherwise the brake can fail.
CAUTION!
Never pull the (disc) brake lever while a wheel is removed and always make
sure that you fit the safety locks (f) before removing the wheel.
A
A
CAUTION!
If your bicycle has mechanical rim brakes (cantilever and V-brakes) you first
have to unhook the brake cable from the brake arm (c). To do this, grip the rim
with one hand and press the brake pads and/or arms together. In this position
the usually barrel shaped nipple of the lateral brake cable or the brake hose (of
V-brakes) can easily be disengaged.
In the case of drum and roller brakes as well as of internal gear hubs release
the torque support (“brake torque arm“) supporting the drive and brake
forces to the frame. The shift cables and the click box must also be dismounted
before wheel removal.
NOTE!
Observe the manuals of the brake and gear manufacturers on this SCOTT

Tyre removal
If the fabric of the tyre is destroyed by the perforating object, replace the
tyre to be on the safe side.
Apply a plastic tyre lever to one bead of the tyre about 5 cm beside the valve
and lever the tyre out of the rim in this area (b). Hold the tyre lever tight in its
position. Slip the second tyre lever between rim and tyre at a distance of about
ten centimetres on the other side of the valve and lever the next portion of the
bead over the edge of the rim (c).
G
G
I
After levering a part of the tyre bead over the edge of the rim you should
normally be able to slip off the whole tyre on one side by moving the tyre lever
around the whole circumference. Now you can remove the inner tube. Make
sure the valve does not get caught in the rim, as this can damage the inner tube.
If necessary you can remove the whole tyre by pulling the other tyre bead off
the rim.
Tyre mounting
Remove the cap and the fastening nut off the valve and deflate the tyre completely (a). Press the tyre from the sides towards the centre of the rim around its
entire circumference. This will ease the removal.
Repair the puncture according to the instructions of the repair kit manufacturer
or replace the inner tube by a new one.
When you have removed the tyre, you should also check the rim tape (d). It
should lie squarely in the rim trough, covering all spoke nipples, and should neither be damaged nor brittle.
In the case of double wall rims the tape must cover the entire rim base, but it
should not be so broad as to stand up along the inside edges of the rim trough.
Rim tapes for this type of rim should only be made of fabric or durable plastic. If
you are in doubt or if you have any questions, contact your SCOTT dealer.
ENGLISH
ENGLISH
CLINCHER AND FOLDING TYRES
DANGER!
Replace spoilt rim tapes immediately.
NOTE!
If you get a puncture en route, inflate the inner tube and bring it close to
your ear. In most cases you can hear the air coming out. At home you can
help yourself with a bucket of water where you can locate the hole by the bubbles. When you have found the hole, look for the corresponding place on the
tyre and check it, as well. Often, you will find a foreign body sticking in the tyre,
which ought to be removed. Otherwise another puncture can occur.
When mounting a tyre make sure no foreign matter, such as dirt or sand, gets
inside the tyre and you do not damage the inner tube in the process.
Slip one bead of the tyre onto the rim. Using your thumbs, press one bead over
the edge of the rim and then around the entire circumference. This should normally be possible without using tools.
Stick the valve of the inner tube through the hole in the rim (e). Inflate the inner
tube slightly so that it becomes round and push it into the tyre all the way round
(f). Make sure not to leave any folds in the inner tube.
To finish mounting the tyre, start at the opposite side of the valve. Using your
thumbs, press as much of the second bead of the tyre over the edge of the rim
as you can.
Make sure the inner tube does not get pinched and squashed between the tyre
and the rim. You can prevent this by pushing the inner tube into the hollow of
the tyre with a finger as you work along.

If you have V-brakes and cantilever brakes hook up the brake cable at the brake
arm. To do this, grip the rim with one hand and press the brake pads and/or the
brake arms together. In this position the usually barrel shaped nipple can easily
be engaged (e).
Before fitting the tyre completely on the rim check again whether the inner tube
lies properly inside the tyre and press the last stretch of tyre over the edge of
the rim using the balls of your thumbs.
If you have disc brakes, check before mounting the wheel whether the brake
pads rest snugly in their seats in the brake calliper body. The gaps between the
brake pads and the wheel should be parallel and the wear indicators in their
correct position (f). Make sure you guide the rotor carefully between the brake
pads.
If this does not work, you will have to use the tyre levers (b). Make sure the bent
ends point towards the inner tube and the inner tube does not get damaged.
Push the valve subsequently a little into the tyre so that the inner tube does
not get caught between the rim and the tyre beads. Check whether the valve
stands upright. If not, dismount one bead again and reposition the inner tube.
To make sure the inner tube does not get pinched between the rim and the
bead, move the tyre sideways back and forth between the sides of the rim.
While doing so, also check whether the rim tape has shifted.
Inflate the inner tube to the desired pressure. The maximum pressure is indicated on the side of the tyre.
Check whether the tyre is properly seated by inspecting the fine witness line
just above the rim edge. This line should be even to the rim all around the tyre
(c). If it is not, deflate the tyre a little and check again. Starting from the maximum tyre pressure you can now reduce the pressure through the valve to suit
your needs. Observe the recommended tyre pressure range.
REMOUNTING THE WHEEL
92
b
If your bicycle has a multi-speed hub, back-pedal, drum or roller brakes, verify
the proper assembly of the individual components and tension the chain before
tightening the wheel nuts by pulling the wheel backwards.
Verify that the amount of play midway between sprockets and chainring is not
more than two centimetres. Make sure there is no excessive chain slack! Finish
by tightening the torque support (“brake torque arm“) to the prescribed torque
value.
All brakes:
After mounting the wheel and tightening the quick-release pull the brake lever
(several times, if you have disc brakes).
Lift your SCOTT bike off the ground and spin the wheel with your hand. With
the wheel spinning the rotor should not drag along the brake calliper or the
brake pads and the rim should keep off the (rim) brake pads.
DANGER!
If you have rim brakes, make sure you hook up the brake cable immediately
after the wheel mounting!

Work the tyre into the rim by approaching the valve symmetrically from both
sides. Towards the end, you will have to pull the tyre vigorously downwards (a)
to make the already mounted portion of the tyre slip towards the deepest part
of the rim well. This will ease the job noticeably on the last centimetres.

1. Check whether the wheels are still firmly fixed in the drop-outs (a) and
whether the rims are still centred with respect to the frame or fork. Spin the
wheels and observe the gap either between brake pads and rim sides or
between frame and tyre. If you have rim brakes and the width of the gap
changes markedly and you have no way to true the rim where you are, you
need to open the brakes a little with the special device so that the rim can run
between the brake pads without touching them. Note that in this case the
brakes may not act as powerfully as you are used to.
No matter whether you have rim or disc brakes, have the wheels trued by
your SCOTT dealer immediately after you are back home.
For more information see the chapters “Brakes”, “Using quick-releases” and
“Wheels and tyres” and the manuals of the component manufacturers on this
SCOTT info CD.
2. Check that handlebars and stem are neither twisted nor bent or broken and
that they are level and aligned. Make sure the stem is firmly fixed on the fork
by trying to twist the handlebars relative to the front wheel (b). Briefly lean
on the brake levers to make sure the handlebars are firmly fixed in the stem.
Realign the components, if necessary, and gently tighten the bolts to ensure
a reliable clamping of the components (c). The maximum torque values are
printed directly on the components or specified in the manuals of the component manufacturers on this SCOTT info CD.
For more information see the chapters “Adjusting the SCOTT bike to the rider” and “The headset on the SCOTT bike” and the manuals of the component
manufacturers on this SCOTT info CD.
3. Check whether the chain still runs on the chainwheels and the sprockets (d).
If your SCOTT bike fell over to the chain side, verify the proper functioning of
the gears. Ask somebody to lift your SCOTT bike by the saddle and carefully
shift through all the gears.
a

the larger sprockets.
ENGLISH
ENGLISH
TESTS AFTER AN ACCIDENT
If the rear derailleur or the drop-outs/derailleur hanger is bent, the rear derailleur may collide with the spokes. This in turn can destroy the rear derailleur,
the rear wheel or the frame. Check the function of the front derailleur, as a
displaced front derailleur can throw off the chain, thus interrupting the drive
of your SCOTT bike. Risk of falling!
For more information see the chapter “Gears” and the manuals of the component manufacturers on this SCOTT info CD.
4.Make sure the saddle is not twisted by using the top tube (e) or the bottom
bracket shell as a reference. If necessary, open the clamping, realign the saddle and retighten the clamping (f).
For more information see the chapters “Adjusting the SCOTT bike to the
rider” and “Using quick-releases” and the manuals of the component manufacturers on this SCOTT info CD.
5. Let your SCOTT bike bounce on the ground from a small height. If there is
any rattling, check where it comes from. Check the bearings and bolted connections, if necessary. Tighten them slightly, if necessary.
6.Finally, take a good look at the whole SCOTT bike to detect any deformations, colour changes or cracks.
DANGER!
Ride back very carefully by taking the shortest route possible, even if your
SCOTT bike went through this check without any problems. Do not accelerate or brake hard and do not ride your bike out of the saddle. If you are in doubt
about the performance of your SCOTT bike, have yourself picked up by car,
instead of taking any risk.

Back home you need to check your SCOTT bike thoroughly. Damaged parts
must be repaired or replaced. Ask your SCOTT dealer for advice. For more
information on carbon components see the manuals of the component manufacturers on this SCOTT info CD.
g
DANGER!
Deformed components, especially components made of aluminum, can
break without previous warning. They must not be repaired, i.e. straightened, as this will not reduce the imminent risk of breakage. This applies in
particular to the fork, the handlebars, the stem, the cranks, the seat post and
the pedals. When in doubt, it is always the better choice for your safety to have
these parts replaced. Ask your SCOTT dealer for advice.
G
DANGER!
If your SCOTT bike is assembled with carbon components, it is imperative
that you have it checked by your SCOTT dealer after an accident or similar
incident. Carbon is extremely strong and durable with very low weight, making
it perfect for the production of high-performance parts. However, one of the
inherent properties of carbon is that possible overstress may compromise the
inner carbon-fibre structure without showing any visible deformation, as is the
case with steel or aluminium. A damaged component can fail without previous
warning. Risk of falling!
G
CAUTION!
Make it a rule to check the functioning and in particular the limit stop of the
rear derailleur after a fall or if your SCOTT bike has toppled over.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION “TESTS AFTER AN ACCIDENT” WITH
YOUR SCOTT PEDELEC
1. Check the rechargeable battery (a-c). Try to remove the rechargeable battery from its mounting. If the rechargeable battery is no longer properly in its
holder or shows any damage, do not use your SCOTT pedelec any longer, at
least not in the assistance mode. Switch off the drive and the rechargeable
battery separately, if necessary. A damaged battery can lead to a short-circuit resulting in a sudden failure of the SCOTT pedelec assistance right at the
moment when you need it.

2. Check that all values are displayed properly and fully on the control unit (d)
or the display. Do not use your SCOTT pedelec, if the control unit shows an
error message or a warning. In the case of critical errors the system switches
off automatically. In the case of non-critical errors the system may be still
operable.
Do not set off on your SCOTT pedelec when the control unit or the display
shows a warning. In such a case, contact your SCOTT dealer immediately. For
more information see the system instructions of your drive manufacturer on
this SCOTT info CD.
3. Let your SCOTT pedelec bounce on the ground from a small height. If there is
any rattling, check where it comes from. Check the bearings, the bolts (e) and
the proper seat of the battery, if necessary.
THE HEADSET ON THE SCOTT BIKE
The headset (f) connects the fork to the frame, but allows it to move freely.
It must turn with virtually no resistance, if the SCOTT bike is to run straight,
stabilising itself as it travels. Shocks caused by uneven road surfaces expose the
headset to considerable levels of stress. In this way it can become loose and go
out of correct adjustment.
DANGER!
Riding the bicycle with a loose headset increases the stress on fork and
bearings. This can lead to damage to the fork. Risk of falling!

To check the bearing for ease of running, lift the frame until the front wheel is
suspended in the air (b). The handlebars should turn from far left to far right
without feeling roughness or tightness at any point. With a gentle tap on the
handlebars the fork should turn easily from the middle position.
The distinct feature of this system is that the stem does not sit within the fork
steerer tube, but rather slips over the fork steerer tube, which in this case is
threadless. The stem is thus an important part of the headset, as the stem
clamping fixes the adjustment. You generally only need one or two Allen keys
and a torque wrench to adjust an Aheadset®.
If you face any problems during the test, contact your SCOTT dealer.
DANGER!
Adjusting the headset requires a certain amount of experience and should
therefore be left to your SCOTT dealer.
G
CONVENTIONAL HEADSETS
The adjustment tolerance between there being play in the bearings and them
being set too tight is very small. The bearing can easily be damaged. If you want
to try it nevertheless, you need two large and flat open-end wrenches (c). Ask
your SCOTT dealer for advice.
Release the top lock nut and turn the head cup below clockwise without tightening it. Fix the lower head cup and retighten the lock nut.
CAUTION!
A too tight adjustment can destroy the bearings and affect the riding characteristics.

If you want to adjust conventional headsets you will need special tools. If,
nevertheless, you want to try it by yourself, read the manual of the headset
manufacturer on this SCOTT info CD.
Check the headset for play by placing your fingers around the upper head
tube race. Bring your weight to bear on the saddle, pull the front brakes with
your other hand and push the SCOTT bike firmly back and forth with the wheel
remaining on the ground (a). If the bearing has play, you will feel the upper head
tube race moving in jerks relative to the lower head tube race - visible as a small

quarter turn, by using an Allen key.
Realign the stem to ensure that the handlebars are at right angle to the wheel.
Make sure the front wheel is in line with the top tube and the stem (e). Tighten
the clamping bolts of the stem (f). Use a torque wrench and never exceed the
maximum torque values! You will find the prescribed values in the chapter “Recommended torque settings for your SCOTT bike”, directly on the components

Check the headset for play as described above. Do not overtighten the headset.
Risk of headset failure!.
DANGER!
Bear in mind that by overtightening the bolts the stem can crush the steerer tube. In particular forks with carbon steerer tubes are highly sensitive to
overtightening the steerer tube clamping at the stem. Risk of breakage! Make
sure the clamping area is absolutely free of grease when any of the clamping
faces is made of carbon. If necessary, use carbon assembly paste in the clamping areas to ensure maximum clamping.

it pushes you forward in front of a bend), slow down your SCOTT pedelec
carefully.
H
RIDING WITH MOTOR ASSISTANCE
RIDING A SCOTT PEDELEC
Your SCOTT pedelec is designed to be used like a conventional SCOTT bike. The
unique riding experience, however, starts when you actuate the drive system (c).
At that moment the assistance generated by the 250 W motor increases with its
high torque the stronger you pedal.
When switched on the system activates during pedalling and the drive assistance is available. Sensors measure your pedalling movements and control the
fully automated drive assistance according to the selected assistance mode. The
level of the additional propulsion depends on the assistance mode, your speed
and the amount of force applied to the pedals.
Practise typical riding situations such as starting off and braking, tight corners
and riding on narrow cycle paths and lanes. This is where a SCOTT pedelec
clearly differs from a conventional SCOTT bike.
100
DANGER!
The system is switched on and off at the buttons of the control element on the
battery or on the handlebars. Furthermore, different assistance modes can be
selected with the command console at the handlebars (e), the remaining capacity of the rechargeable battery is displayed and the different functions of the
cycle computer, if available, can be selected (f).
Set off for your first ride by selecting the lowest drive support (d). Gradually get
used to the additional propulsion. Slowly approach the potential of your SCOTT
pedelec in an area free of traffic.
a
Pull the brake lever of the rear brake and stop pedalling. The pedelec will
stop. Emergency stop! To achieve the shortest possible stopping distance
brake with both brakes in a way that the pedelec slows down gradually (see
chapter “Brakes”).

Keep in mind that you may have to change your riding habits: Do not mount
by placing one foot on the pedal and by trying to throw the other leg over the
saddle. The SCOTT pedelec would set off suddenly. Risk of falling!
Stop pedalling earlier than you are used to before riding a turn or bend. Otherwise there may be too much propulsion and your cornering speed may be too
high. Reduce the pedal force deliberately, before you start changing the gear.

USEFUL INFORMATION FOR A LONG RIDE
Keep in mind that the other road users are not yet used to the new pedelecs
and their higher speeds. Ride with this fact in mind and anticipate the actions
of other road users. Be aware that the speed you ride at will be clearly faster
than you are used to. Therefore, keep these facts in mind and be ready to brake
whenever an unclear or a possibly dangerous situation comes into your field of
vision.
How long and how far you can benefit from the auxiliary drive depends on
several factors, i.e. the road conditions, the weight of the rider and any additional load, the rider’s pedal force, the degree or mode of assistance, (head)winds,
frequent stops, temperature, weather conditions, topography, tyre pressure etc.
DANGER!
Do a test ride in an unfrequented area (b) to make yourself familiar with the
riding characteristics of your SCOTT pedelec and the possibly higher speed
and acceleration before riding on public roads. Risk of accident! Never ride
without a helmet!

Do not give in to the temptation to always ride in a high gear, due to the strong
motor. Shift gears frequently (a) in the same way that you are used to doing
with a conventional SCOTT bike so as to make your own contribution to your
forward progress as efficient as possible. Your cadence should always be in a
smooth flow. In other words, you should pedal at more than 60 crank rotations
per minute.
The charge state of your rechargeable battery can be read from the display of
the control element on the handlebars (d) or, additionally, on the rechargeable
battery.
CAUTION!
In general, the batteries of SCOTT pedelecs have no memory effect. It is
recommended that you charge the battery after every long ride. Avoid any
deep discharge of the rechargeable battery.
S
NOTE!
For more information see the system instructions of your drive manufacturer on this SCOTT info CD.
U
To extend the range it is recommended that you ride with low assistance (Eco)
(e) or no assistance at all on level or downhill trails and only select maximum
drive assistance (Turbo) (e) with headwinds, heavy additional loads and/or
when climbing hills.
Furthermore, you can affect the range by
- checking the tyre pressure regularly, i.e. once a week with a pressure gauge
(f), and adjusting it, if necessary
- shifting gears down in front of traffic lights and intersections or in general in
cases of stops and by setting off in low gears
- shifting gears regularly, as you would do on a SCOTT bike without drive

DANGER!
If your battery runs empty during the ride, do not recharge the battery with
any charger, even if it happens to be fitted with an identical connector type.
Risk of explosion! Make it a habit to charge your battery only with the supplied
charger (a).

- not only riding in high gears
- riding with these facts in mind and always looking ahead to avoid any unnecessary stops
- reducing your additional load, i.e. without unnecessary luggage
- storing your battery in your home and installing it only shortly before you set
off on your SCOTT pedelec in cooler weather, in particular when it is cold
- not parking your SCOTT pedelec in the blazing sun
USEFUL FACTS FOR RIDING A SCOTT SPEED PEDELEC
Basically, a SCOTT speed pedelec is a pedelec, however, it is significantly faster.
Read the chapter “Riding a SCOTT pedelec” thoroughly, before reading this
chapter. Keep in mind that all tips and warnings given in the mentioned chapter
apply all the more and with still greater importance to SCOTT speed pedelecs.
Practise the handling of the still more powerful and faster SCOTT speed pedelec
and always ride with foresight.
In contrast to SCOTT pedelecs, SCOTT speed pedelecs are classified as motor
vehicles. This entails a number of regulations according to which your SCOTT
speed pedelec must be equipped:
- Beside the bicycle typical components it must be fitted with a rear view mirror (e).
-A SCOTT speed pedelec must have liability insurance, an operating licence or
EU type approval and the insurance marking must be attached (f).
- The tyres must have a minimum tread depth of 1 mm, as is well known for
motor vehicles. Every tyre worn down to this minimum depth must be replaced by an identical one; otherwise this will void the operating licence.
- After you have removed the battery of your SCOTT pedelec: Keep the connections of the rechargeable battery free of dirt and moisture (c).

INFORMATION FOR PROPER HANDLING OF THE
RECHARGEABLE BATTERY
Remove the rechargeable battery, if you do not use your SCOTT pedelec for
a longer period of time (e.g. during the winter season). Store the rechargeable
battery in a dry room at temperatures between 5 and 20 degrees Celsius. The
state of charge should be 50 to 70 % of the charging capacity. Check the state of
charge (f), if the rechargeable battery is left unused for more than two months
and recharge it in between, if necessary, to 50 %, i.e. until half of the LEDs.
Clean the battery housing with a dry or, if at all, a slightly moist rag. Do not
direct the water jet of a high-pressure cleaner at the rechargeable battery
or submerge the battery into water, as there is a risk of water entry and/or
short-circuit.

USEFUL INFORMATION FOR PARENTS
Children are among the most vulnerable road user groups, not only because of
their lack of experience and practice, but also for the simple reason that they
are smaller and may therefore have difficulties overseeing things and be easily
overlooked by other road users.
If you want your child to use his/her SCOTT kids’ bike (e) on the road, you
should be willing to invest time in road safety instruction and help him/her improve his/her riding skills.
Children are not as observant as adults, and you should therefore get into the
routine of checking the SCOTT kids’ bike (f) and performing adjustments and
maintenance as necessary. If you are in doubt or if you have any questions, contact your SCOTT dealer.
Bear in mind that it is your responsibility to supervise your child on his/her first
rides – do not overchallenge your child! Inform yourself about the traffic rules
in your country. They vary from country to country. For example, in Germany,
children must use the pavement until they are eight years old and they are permitted to do so until the age of ten.

This being accomplished you will need to make your child familiar with the functioning of the brakes and gears (b) before you let him/her sit on his/her SCOTT
kids’ bike. Find a place away from the road, ideally a backyard or park, where
you can practise braking and shifting gears with your child under your supervision.
Once your child has progressed to a point where he/she can ride in traffic (c+d),
teach him/her how to cross kerbs and railway tracks, i.e. to cross these obstacles, if possible, at right angle. Your child should also learn to look ahead and
back for any danger before taking this kind of obstacle.
Set a good example when it comes to wearing a cycling helmet (e) and to riding
on cycle lanes. It is also advisable to let your child take part in road safety lessons offered at schools or by local clubs and associations.
DANGER!
ake sure the child always wears a properly fitting cycling helmet and well
M
visible, i.e. bright, clothing. It is also advisable to wear reflector stripes to
increase visibility.
G
ENGLISH
ENGLISH
It is essential that your child has good control of his/her SCOTT kids’ bike before
riding on public roads. As a first step in this direction we recommend that you
give your child a scooter or a SCOTT walker (a), so that he/she can train his/her
sense of balance.
CAUTION!
Make sure the cycling helmet complies with the EN 1078 test standard.
A
A
CAUTION!
Children can be vain. Therefore, buy a cycling helmet that the child feels
happy with. Take your child with you to make sure you buy one which is
comfortable and fits correctly. This will increase the chances that the helmet
is actually worn, which one day might be a life-saver. Make sure the helmet is
always fastened!
CAUTION!
hen you buy the helmet, have yourself explained how to adjust the straps
W
of the helmet to the head. Only a properly fitted helmet can provide full
protection in case of an accident!
A
DANGER!
It is important to tell children when they practise braking that in wet conditions the brake performance is less effective and the tyre grip reduced and
that they should therefore ride more slowly and brake more carefully.
G
DANGER!
Take care your child is wearing the helmet while cycling only. For example,
wearing the helmet at a park or playground can be hazardous; the helmet
can get caught on features or obstacles and result in strangulation by helmet
straps.
G
DANGER!
Children should not ride near precipices, staircases or swimming pools as
well as on paths used by automotive mobiles.

ADJUSTMENT
Adjusting the SCOTT kids’ bike to the bodily proportions of a child is even more
important than in the case of an adult. When determining the saddle height you
should find a compromise that allows the child to reach the ground with both
feet (f) when sitting in the saddle while at the same time giving them enough
space for pedalling. A safe standing (when stopping) takes absolute priority!
Handlebars that are too far away from the saddle or adjusted in a too high/low
position can also lead to the fact that the child is less confident and relaxed during cycling. Normally, children’s bicycles allow adjustments of the saddle tilt and
sometimes the tilt of the handlebars can be adjusted, as well.

LIGHTING OF YOUR SCOTT BIKE
For more information on how to perform the adjustments of the SCOTT kids’
bike to the proportions and needs of your child, read the chapter ”Adjusting
the SCOTT bike to the rider”. If you are in doubt or if you have any questions,
contact your SCOTT dealer.
For riding on public roads a functioning lighting set is obligatory (see the chapter “Legal requirements for riding on public roads”).
Get into the habit of doing the checks as described in the chapter “Tests before
every ride“ together with your child. In this way, your child will learn to handle
the SCOTT kids’ bike properly and you will be able to detect any defects that
have developed during use.
Encourage your child to tell you, if anything should not be working properly on
his/her SCOTT kids’ bike. Rectify the fault immediately or take the SCOTT kids’
bike to your SCOTT dealer for repair.
Children and adolescents need to have the saddle height and the position
of saddle (b) and handlebars (c) checked at least every 3 months!

HELMETS AND GLASSES
Cycling helmets (f) are absolutely recommendable. Your SCOTT dealer has a
variety of styles and sizes.
Make sure the helmet complies with the test standard EN 1078 or the like (depending on the country where you use it). Cycling helmets are only approved
for use during cycling. Observe the manufacturer’s instructions.
DANGER!
ever ride without a helmet and glasses! But remember that even the
N
safest helmet is useless unless it fits properly and is correctly adjusted and
fastened.
G
In addition to a cycling helmet and suitable clothing, cycling glasses are absolutely essential when you are riding your SCOTT bike. They do not only protect
your eyes from the sun and the wind, but also keep out flies and other impurities
that may impede your vision when they fly into your eyes. Being temporarily
without sight may result in an accident or fall!
Good cycling glasses should fit tightly on your face not allowing any wind to affect your eyes. Cycling glasses come in a wide range of models, such as glasses
with clear lenses and without UV protection for cycling in the dawn and at night
or glasses with maximum UV protection for cycling under extreme sunlight.
Your SCOTT dealer has a wide range of cycling glasses available and will be
pleased to advise you.

Cycling trousers (a) are essential if you want to sit comfortably. These close-fitting trousers, at least at the inside, have special padding in the seat. They have
no seams that can press into you and they do not form folds. Cycling trousers
are therefore designed to be worn next to the skin.
Since sporty cycling will soon bring you out in a sweat, a jersey made of synthetic materials is ideal (b). The fibres themselves do not take up any moisture
but instead wick the sweat away from the skin up to the surface of the materials
and thus prevent you getting cold from the cool wind produced by your speed.
On longer tours you should in addition have suitable protection against the rain.
Your SCOTT dealer will be glad to help you choose the right equipment.
DANGER!
ever ride with wide-cut trousers or skirts that might get caught in the
N
spokes, chain or chainrings. To avoid any such mishap, use suitable clips or
straps, if necessary.
G
DANGER!
For increased visibility to other road users be sure to wear striking and
bright-coloured clothing!
G
PEDALS AND SHOES
Special cycling shoes are obligatory, if your SCOTT bike is equipped with clipless pedals. With these shoes cleats are fixed to the sole. They give you a firm
connection between shoe and pedal and allow depending on the model an at
least acceptable walking position.
118
The usual way to engage with the pedal is to turn it from the lowest position of
the crank to the horizontal using the tip of the cleat and push down on the back
of it. Normally, the shoe engages with the pedal with a click which you will hear
and feel clearly.
The release force of clipless pedals is adjusted by means of an Allen key (e). At
the beginning the setting should allow an easy release. Once you have more
practice, you can tighten the setting.
If there are any creaking or squeaking noises, which occur, some grease will
solve the problem in most cases. These noises as well as lateral play of the shoe
on the pedal can, however, also be signs of wear. Check the cleats at regular
intervals.
DANGER!
ake sure the fastening bolts of the cleats are properly tightened, as you
M
will find it almost impossible to disengage your shoe from the pedal if the
cleat is loose. Risk of falling!
G
DANGER!
Cycling shoes (c) should be made of solid material to provide firm support for
your feet. In addition, they should have a stiff sole so that the pedal cannot
press through. The sole should not be too wide in the area of the heels, as the
rear stays or the crank will otherwise get in the way of your pedalling. This will
prevent your feet from assuming a natural position when pedalling and may
cause knee pain in the long run. Your SCOTT dealer has a wide range of shoes
available and will be pleased to advise you.
a
The main advantage is that these clipless pedals (d) prevent your feet from slipping off when pedalling fast. They enable you not only to push but also to pull
the pedals. This makes your pedalling more smooth and increases the power
transmission compared to normal pedals.

ACCESSORIES
In purchasing this SCOTT bike you laid the foundation for many years and miles
of enjoyable cycling. Whatever you are planning to do with your SCOTT bike,
be sure to have proper equipment and to keep a few tips in mind. Your SCOTT
dealer has a variety of useful accessories on offer enhancing both your safety
and convenience.
Your SCOTT bike can be fitted with various kinds of accessories (b). Make
sure to observe the requirements according to the traffic regulations in your
country and of the EN standards. Any retrofitted part must be compatible with
your SCOTT bike. If you are in doubt or if you have any questions, contact your
SCOTT dealer.
DANGER!
Bicycle locks
Do not forget to take a high quality D- (e) or chain lock with you on your ride.
The only way to effectively protect your SCOTT bike against theft is to lock it to
an immovable object.
Puncture kit
The most important accessories for a successful cycle tour are a tyre pump and
a small tool kit. The tool kit should include two plastic tyre levers, the most commonly used Allen keys, a spare tube, a tyre repair kit and a little cash (f). In this
way you will be well prepared in the event of a puncture or some other mishap.
Take your mobile phone with you, as well.
Unsuitable accessories may change the qualities of your SCOTT bike and
even cause an accident. Therefore, before fitting any accessories contact
your SCOTT dealer and observe the instructions regarding the intended use of
your SCOTT bike.

Bike kickstands (b) are intended to prevent your bike from falling over when it is
parked. The kickstand should be chosen according to the kind of use that it will
get.
Your SCOTT dealer would be glad to advice you in detail about a suitable type
of kickstand. Have the kickstand installed by your SCOTT dealer.
Mudguards/wheel protections
If you want to mount mudguards on your SCOTT bike, ask your SCOTT dealer
for advice. There are removable mudguards (c), also referred to as clip-on mudguards, as well as firmly attached models that provide more protection against
moisture and dirt.
Retrofittable mudguards for fix fastening are usually made of plastics and are
secured in the correct position by means of additional stays. The length of the
stay is perfect when the bottom edge of the mudguard runs at an approx. distance of 15 mm parallel to the tyre.
Also make sure that neither the brakes nor the steering are affected.
For safety reasons the front wheel stays must have security fastenings. They
prevent the tyre from being blocked by impurities taken up by the front wheel
from the ground. In this case the security fastening frees the stay and hereby
prevents a possible accident. The plug connection can easily be refastened.

TRANSPORTING LUGGAGE
There are various ways of carrying luggage on your SCOTT bike. Your choice
will primarily depend on the weight and volume of the luggage and on the
bicycle you want to use. Using a rucksack is a convenient way of transporting
luggage on a bike. However, your SCOTT bike is fitted with a pannier rack (d) for
longer cycling tours or if you intend to take heavy and bulky items with you.
It is advisable to carry luggage in stable pannier bags (e) with a very low centre
of gravity.
The lower you stow heavy items, the less the riding characteristics are affected.
Another possibility of transporting luggage are handlebar bags (f). They often
have snap buckles for quick mounting and removal. Handlebar bags are particularly suitable for valuables, the photographic equipment and maps that should
be within easy reach during your tour.
When buying pannier bags, make sure they are watertight so that your belongings are protected and you will not have any unpleasant surprises after the first
rain shower.
Lowrider bags fitted at the front of the bicycle are mounted to the fork by
means of special holders. If you are in doubt or if you have any questions, contact your SCOTT dealer.
Do not overload your SCOTT bike. Follow the indications given in the chapter
“Intended use of your SCOTT bike” and observe the maximum permissible
load printed or imprinted on the pannier rack. Stow heavy items as far down as
possible.

Towing devices have a strong influence on the riding characteristics of your
SCOTT bike. The weight of both the hitched kids’ bike and the child will
make the bicycle somewhat top-heavy. Your SCOTT bike may tend to wobble.
Practise getting on and off your bicycle as well as cycling. Keep in mind, in particular when turning, that your bicycle including trailer system is much longer.
G
DANGER!
It is also important for you to practise with your child how to behave on
a hitched bicycle during the ride. Make sure your child wears a helmet (a)
even when riding on a tandem bicycle. Set a good example by wearing a helmet,
as well!
G
DANGER!
Only buy tested trailer systems (b) (e.g. DIN/EN/GS tested systems) and
have them properly mounted. The manuals of the manufacturers included
in the delivery of your trailer system, provide detailed information in this regard.
G
DANGER!
When riding in the dark the attached kids’ bike should be fitted with the
prescribed lighting (c), i.e. the latter should be marked with a wavy line and
the letter “K” (d). If you are in doubt or if you have any questions, contact your
SCOTT dealer. If the bottle dynamo’s roller does not spin, we recommend a
tested battery-powered rear light.
G
NOTE!
If you want to use your SCOTT bike for towing a trailer system, check
whether it is approved for towing. Have a look at the SCOTT bike card or
ask your SCOTT dealer for advice.

TRANSPORT OF THE SCOTT BIKE OR SCOTT PEDELEC
BY CAR
ENGLISH
ENGLISH
DANGER!
Nearly every car accessory dealer and car company offers carrier systems (e)
that allow the transport of a bike without disassembly.
The usual design involves rails fixed to the roof of the car onto which the bicycles are fixed with clamps gripping the down or the top tubes. This can, however, result in irreparable damage to the frame. High-end, very thin-walled aluminium or carbon frames are particularly susceptible to such kind of damage. Due
to the material properties of carbon, you may not see a severe damage at first
sight. This can result in an unforeseeable severe accident at a later date. There
are, however, special suitable models available in the car accessory trade.
Rear carriers are becoming more and more popular. Their big advantage over
roof carriers is that you do not have to lift up the bicycle so high to attach it.
Make sure the clamps do not cause any damage to the fork or frame. Risk of
breakage!
Whatever system you opt for, make sure it complies with the relevant safety
standards, e.g. DIN/EN standards of your country (GS symbol).
Read the manual of your bicycle carrier and comply with the maximum load
capacity and recommended or prescribed driving speed. If applicable, comply
with the required supporting load on the trailer hitch.
DANGER!
ake sure to remove all parts of your SCOTT bike (tools, pannier bags,
M
tachometers (f) etc.) which may come loose during transport. Risk of accident!

CAUTION!
Do not buy a carrier on which the SCOTT bike has to be mounted upside
down, i.e. with the handlebars and saddle fixed face down to the carrier.
This way of fastening the bicycle exposes handlebars, stem, saddle and seat
post to extreme stress during transport. Do not opt for a carrier system with
crank arm fit. Risk of breakage!
G
DANGER!
Be sure to transport your SCOTT bike only with the wheels mounted. If
transporting your SCOTT bike with the wheels removed, make sure to
mount the safety locks. Pull the brake levers and secure them with a strong elastic strap (c) when transporting a SCOTT bike with hydraulic disc brakes (d). This

By car
SCOTT pedelecs can be transported like conventional SCOTT bikes outside or
inside the car (a). Always make sure the SCOTT pedelec is securely fastened
outside or inside the car and check the fastenings regularly. In addition, you
should always remove the battery from your SCOTT pedelec (b) before fastening your SCOTT pedelec outside the car. Stow the battery in its original
cardboard box (c) and, if mounted, a removable display unit, inside the car and
secure it appropriately to avoid any damage during transport. The rechargeable
battery should be tightened with straps. Hazardous goods!
Protect the connections of the rechargeable battery against rain, wetness, moisture and dirt during the journey, for example, with a plastic bag.
CAUTION!
The weight distribution on pedelecs differs markedly from the weight distribution on bicycles without drive assistance. A pedelec is markedly heavier
than a bicycle without drive assistance. For this reason parking, pushing, lifting
and carrying the SCOTT pedelec is more difficult. Bear this in mind when loading your pedelec into a car and unloading it or when mounting it on a bicycle
carrier system.
S
CAUTION!
Before transporting several pedelecs with a roof mounting or a rear mounting carrier system, inform yourself about the maximum load capacity of
the bike carrier and the maximum load of the trailer hitch. Keep in mind that the
weight of a pedelec is higher than the weight of a bicycle without drive. Maybe
you can only transport one or two pedelecs instead of three bicycles without
drive.

It is advisable to have your SCOTT bike serviced regularly by your SCOTT dealer
after the bedding-in phase, i.e. according to the SCOTT service and maintenance schedule. If you ride a great deal on poor road surfaces or on uneven
ground, it will require correspondingly shorter service periods (see SCOTT service plan). The off-season during the winter months is a very good time to take
your SCOTT bike to your SCOTT dealer for the annual inspection, as they will
have plenty of time for you and for servicing.
ENGLISH
ENGLISH
By plane
The intended use of your SCOTT bike includes regular servicing and the replacement of worn out parts in time, e.g. chains, brake pads (c) or bowden
and brake cables (d). This will ensure the safe functioning and therefore has an
influence on the liability for material defects and the warranty.
For more information see the chapter “SCOTT service and maintenance schedule” and the manuals of the component manufacturers on this SCOTT info CD.
GENERAL NOTES ON CARE AND SERVICING
MAINTENANCE AND SERVICING YOUR SCOTT BIKE
Your SCOTT dealer will have assembled and adjusted your SCOTT bike ready
for use when you come to collect it. Nevertheless, your SCOTT bike needs regular servicing (a). Have your local SCOTT dealer do the scheduled maintenance
work. This is the only way to ensure that all components function safely and
reliably for many kilometres.
The bike will be due for its first service after 100 to 300 kilometres, 5 to 15 hours
of initial use or four to six weeks, at the latest however after three months. The
bedding-in phase typically involves spokes slightly losing tension or gears coming out of adjustment (b), so there is every reason to have your SCOTT dealer
service the SCOTT bike at this stage. This bedding-in process is unavoidable.
Therefore, remember to make an appointment with your SCOTT dealer to have
your new SCOTT bike inspected. This first service is very important for both
functioning and durability of your SCOTT bike.

c
TREKKING-PEDELEC | ORIGINAL OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS 2016
DANGER!
Servicing and repairs are jobs best left to your SCOTT dealer. If you have
your bike serviced by anyone else than an expert, you run the risk that parts
of your SCOTT bike will fail. Risk of accident! When working on your SCOTT
bike, restrict yourself to jobs for which you have the suitable tools, e.g. a torque
wrench (e), and the necessary knowledge.
G
DANGER!
If a component needs to be replaced, make it a rule to only use original
spare parts (f). Wearing parts of other manufacturers, e.g. brake pads or
tyres that are not of identical dimension, may render your SCOTT bike unsafe.

Dried sweat, dirt and salt from riding during the winter or in sea air can harm
your SCOTT bike. You should therefore make it a habit of cleaning all components at regular intervals (a).
Avoid cleaning your bike with a high-pressure cleaner. The high-pressure jet is
likely to enter bearings by passing through the seals and dilute the lubricants
hereby increasing the friction. This destroys and impairs the functioning of
the bearing races in the long term. High-pressure jets are also likely to remove frame and rim stickers. The electronics could be damaged in the case of
pedelecs.
A much more gentle way of cleaning your bike is with a low-pressure water jet
or a bucket of water and a sponge or a large brush. Cleaning your bike by hand
has another positive side-effect: you may discover defects in the paint as well as
worn or defective components at an early stage.
Check the chain for wear and relubricate after cleaning and drying (b) (see the
chapter “Bicycle chain” and the manuals of the component manufacturers on
this SCOTT info CD).
Wipe dry the sliding surfaces of the suspension fork and the rear shock (c) and
apply special spray approved by the manufacturer (d).
Apply a coat of standard hard wax on painted, metal and carbon surfaces
(except from brake surfaces and brake discs). Polish the waxed surfaces after
drying to give them a nice shine.
DANGER!
Keep cleaning agents and chain oil clear of the brake pads, brake discs and
rim sides (braking surfaces). Otherwise the brake could fail. Never grease or
lubricate the clamping areas of a frame made of carbon, e.g. handlebars, stem,
seat post and seat tube. Once greased, carbon components may never again
ensure reliable clamping!
G

WHAT TO BEAR IN MIND WHEN SERVICING SCOTT SPEED PEDELECS
If you regularly look after your SCOTT bike during the season (a), you will not
need to take any special measures when storing it for a short time, apart from
securing it against theft. Store your bike in a dry, well aerated place.
Note that in the case of SCOTT speed pedelecs only certain components are allowed to be replaced, otherwise there is the risk of loosing the operating licence
and the insurance cover. Only use spare parts confirmed by experts’ reports on
the approval for your SCOTT speed pedelec. As an alternative you may also go
through an individual approval process by a technical inspection authority of
your country. To be on the safe side, be sure to only use original spare parts.
If you want to store your SCOTT bike for a longer period of time, e.g. over
the winter months, observe the following things: Inflated inner tubes tend to
gradually lose air when the bike is not used for a long time. If your SCOTT bike
is left standing on flat tyres for an extended period, this can cause damage to
the structure of the tyres. It is therefore better to hang the wheels or the entire
SCOTT bike or to check the tyre pressure regularly (b). Clean your SCOTT bike
and protect it against corrosion. Your SCOTT dealer offers a variety of care
products, such as spray wax etc.
Remove the seat post (c) and let moisture that may have entered dry. Spray a
little finely atomized oil into the metal seat tube. However, do not apply oil in
a carbon seat tube. Shift the gear to the smallest chainring and the smallest
sprocket. This relaxes the cables and the springs.
ENGLISH
ENGLISH
SHELTERING AND STORING YOUR SCOTT BIKE OR SCOTT PEDELEC
Components which must not be replaced or only after a type test, e.g. carried
out by a technical inspection authority: Frame, fork, drive unit, battery, tyres,
rims, brake system, front and rear light, kickstand, handlebars, stem, command
console/display (d+e) and licence plate frame.
The following components can be replaced, even without any further test: Pedals (f) (pedal reflectors are compulsory), mudguards (with rounded edge at the
front mudguard), pannier rack, saddle and rubber grips on the handlebars, gear
components (provided the highest transmission remains identical), seat post,
chain, headset, inner tube and hub as well as bell and rear view mirror (when
replaced by equivalent models).
NOTE!
There are hardly any waiting times at your SCOTT dealer during the winter
months. In addition, many of the SCOTT dealers offer an annual check-up
at a special price. Benefit from the idle time and ask your SCOTT dealer to do
the scheduled maintenance work!
I
CAUTION!
In the case of SCOTT speed pedelecs be sure to only assemble original
spare parts, otherwise the operating licence expires.

Maintenance and care of your SCOTT pedelec motor
The motor, the rechargeable battery and the control element and/or display are
mainly maintenance free, except for the battery charging which is necessary
regularly. From time to time the dirt and oil needs to be cleaned off your chain
with an oily rag (a). Special degreasers are not necessary; they even have a
damaging effect.
Having cleaned the chain as thoroughly as possible, apply chain oil, wax or
grease to the chain links (b). To lubricate the chain, drip the lubricant onto the
rollers of the lower run of the chain while you turn the crank. Once this is done,
turn the cranks a few more times; then let the SCOTT pedelec rest for a few
minutes so that the lubricant can disperse. Finally wipe off excess lubricant with
a rag so that it does not spatter around during riding or can collect road dirt.
CAUTION!
A rechargeable battery that has reached the end of its service life must
not be disposed of with normal household rubbish. Bring the rechargeable
battery to the dealer, where you buy your new one. If in doubt, ask your SCOTT
dealer.
S
CAUTION!
The drive is not approved for steam cleaning, high-pressure cleaning or
cleaning with a water hose. The contact of water with the electronics or the
drive can destroy the units. The individual drive components can be cleaned
with a soft rag (c) and neutral detergents. You may use a moist rag, but not
excessive water. Do not submerge the rechargeable battery!

NOTES ON WEARING PARTS
Your SCOTT bike was manufactured with great care. Normally it is delivered to
you by your SCOTT dealer fully assembled.
Some components of your SCOTT bike are subject to wear due to their function
(a+b). The rate of wear will depend on care and maintenance and the way you
use your SCOTT bike (mileage, riding in the rain, dirt, salt etc.). SCOTT bikes
that are often left standing in the open may also be subject to increased wear
through weathering.
As direct purchaser you have full warranty rights within the first two years after
purchase. Contact your SCOTT dealer in the event of defects.
To ensure a smooth handling of your claim, it is necessary to present your receipt, your SCOTT bike card, the SCOTT handover report and the proofs of the
service plan. Therefore, be sure to keep these documents in a safe place.
To ensure a long service life and good durability of your SCOTT bike, use it
only for its intended purpose (see the chapter “Intended use of your SCOTT
bike“ and the SCOTT bike card). Observe the permissible load specifications as
specified on the SCOTT bike card. Be sure to follow the mounting instructions
of the manufacturers (above all, the torque values of the bolts) as well as the
prescribed maintenance schedule.
Observe the checks and routines listed in this owner’s manual or in any other
manuals enclosed with this delivery (see the chapter “SCOTT service and maintenance schedule”) as well as any instructions concerning the replacement of
safety-relevant components such as handlebars or brakes etc.
