Warning and Safety Information
Warning and Safety
Meanings of Warnings:
This symbol is important. See the word “CAUTION” or “WARNING” which follows it.
The word “CAUTION” is before mechanical instructions. If you do not obey these instructions, mechanical damage or failure of a part of the bicycle can occur.
The word “WARNING” is before personal safety instructions. If you do not obey these instructions, injury to the rider or to others can occur.
• CHOKING HAZARD. Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
• Adult assembly is required.
• Handlebar hand grip or tube end plugs should be replaced if damaged as bare tubes have
been known to cause injury. All products with capped handlebar ends should be checked
regularly to ensure that adequate protection for the ends of the handlebars are in place.
• Replacement forks must have the same rake and tube inner diameter as the original
product.
• Do not add a motor to the product.
• Do not tow or push the product.
• Do not modify the product.
• Replace worn or broken parts immediately.
• If anything does not operate properly, discontinue use.
The Owner’s Responsibility
WARNING: This bicycle is made to be ridden by one rider at a time for general
transportation and recreational use. It is not made to withstand the abuse of stunting and
jumping.
If the bicycle was purchased unassembled, it is the owner’s responsibility to follow all assembly and adjustment instructions exactly as written in this manual, and any “Special Instructions” supplied and to make sure all fasteners and components are securely tightened.
NOTE: Periodically check that all fasteners and components are securely tightened.
If the bicycle was purchased assembled, it is the owner’s responsibility, before riding the
bicycle for the first time, to make sure the bicycle has been assembled and adjusted exactly as written in this manual, and any “Special Instructions” supplied and to make sure all
fasteners and components are securely tightened.
NOTE:
If product is assembled, please proceed to sections:
• Testing Stem, Handlebar
• Seat Clamp tightness.

WARNING: Failure of the rider to obey the following “Rules of the Road” can result
in injury to the rider or to others.
• Obey all traffic regulations, signs, and signals.
• Always wear a bicycle helmet that meets safety standards, as well as local safety standards.
• Ride on the correct side of the road, in a single file, and in a straight line.
• If possible, avoid riding at night, dusk, dawn and any other time of poor visibility.
• If you must ride at night or at time of poor visibility:
• Purchase, install, and use a headlight and taillight.
• Headlights are required by all states for nighttime riding and taillights are required in
some states.
• Battery-powered lights or flashing safety lights are also recommended.
• Reflectors: For your own safety, do not ride the bicycle if the reflectors are incorrectly
installed, damaged, or missing. Make sure the front and rear reflectors are vertical. Do not
allow the visibility of the reflectors to be blocked by clothing or other articles. Dirty reflectors do not work well. Clean the reflectors, as necessary, with soap and a damp cloth.
• Make yourself more visible to motorists.
• Wear light-colored or reflective clothing, such as a reflective vest and reflective bands
for your arms and legs.
• Use reflective tape on your helmet.
• Do not let anything cover the reflectors.
• Use extra caution in wet weather:
• Ride slowly on damp surfaces because the tires will slide more easily.
• Allow increased braking distance in wet weather.
• Avoid these hazards to prevent loss of control or damage to your wheels:
• Be aware of drain grates, soft road edges, gravel or sand, pot holes or ruts, wet leaves, or
uneven paving.
• Cross railroad tracks at a right angle to prevent the loss of control.
• Avoid unsafe actions while riding.
• Do not carry any passengers.
• Do not carry any items or attach anything to your bicycle that could hinder your vision,
hearing, or control.
• Do not ride with both hands off the handlebar.
• Do not add a motor to the product.
• Do not tow or push the product.
• Do not modify the product.
• Replace worn or broken parts immediately with original equipment.
• If anything does not operate properly, discontinue use.

WARNING:
• Never shift a derailleur onto the largest or the smallest sprocket if the derailleur is not
shifting smoothly. The derailleur may be out of adjustment and the chain could jam,
causing loss of control and injury.
• Never move the shifter while pedaling backward, nor pedal backwards immediately
after having moved the shifter. This could jam the chain and cause damage to the
bicycle and/or loss of control and injury.
OPERATE THE SHIFT SYSTEM AS FOLLOWS:

The rider turns the Rear Shift Control
around the handlebar (for twist shift models) or
moves the shift lever (thumb shift models) to an index position
When the rear shift control moves into each position with a “click” sound, the shift is
complete
The rider turns the Front Shift Control
around the handlebar (for twist shift models) or
moves the shift lever to an index position (thumb shift models)
Each shift control pulls a cable wire that is attached to the derailleur.
The derailleur moves and guides the chain from one sprocket to another.
If there is some chain noise after the shift, turn the rear shift control a small amount to
“trim” the rear derailleur.

Shift System
Shift System - continued
CAUTION: Do not force the shift levers. Shift only when pedaling forward and without
strong force. Do not backpedal. Backpedaling can cause the chain to come off the sprockets.
Backpedaling and shifting while not pedaling can damage the sprockets and stretch the
cable wire.
There is no “correct gear” in which to ride the bicycle. The “correct gear” is the one that is
comfortable to you.
To select a gear or sprocket combination while riding:
1. While pedaling, shift the chain onto different front and rear sprocket combinations.
2. You will feel a difference in the rhythm and ease of pedaling.
3. Shift the chain to the gear that allows you to pedal at a rhythm and effort that is
comfortable to you.
4. When riding uphill or against the wind, you may wish to keep the chain on the smallest
and shift the chain on the rear sprocket cluster

Repair and Service
Maintenance
WARNING:
• Inspect the product frequently. Failure to inspect the product and to make repairs or
adjustments, as necessary, can result in injury to the rider or to others. Make sure all
parts are correctly assembled and adjusted as written in this manual and any “Special
Instructions”.
• Immediately replace any damaged, missing, or badly worn parts with original
equipment.
• Make sure all fasteners are correctly tightened as written in this manual and any
“Special Instructions”. Parts that are not tight enough can be lost or operate poorly.
Over tightened parts can be damaged. Make sure any replacement fasteners are the
correct size and type.
NOTE: Have a bicycle service shop make any repairs or adjustments for which you do not
have the correct tools or if the instructions in this manual or any “Special Instructions” are
not sufficient for you.
34
Maintenance:
• Frequently check the tire inflation pressure because all tires lose air slowly over time. For
extended storage, keep the weight of the off the tires.
• Do not use unregulated air hoses to inflate the tire/tubes. An unregulated hose can suddenly over inflate tires and cause them to burst.
• Replace worn tires.
WARNING
: Do not ride or sit on the unit if a tire is under inflated. This can damage the tire, inner tube and rim.
Maintenance
Tires
Inflating the Tires:
• Use a hand or a foot pump to inflate the tires.
• Service station meter-regulated air hoses are also acceptable.
• The maximum inflation pressure is shown on the tire sidewall.
• If two inflation pressures are on the tire sidewall, use the higher pressure for on-road riding
and the lower pressure for off-road riding.
• The lower pressure will provide better tire traction and a more comfortable ride.
Before adding air to any tire, make sure the edge of the tire (the bead) is the same distance
from the rim, all around the rim, on both sides of the tire. If the tire does not appear to be
seated correctly, release air from the inner tube until you can push the bead of the tire into
the rim where necessary. Add air slowly and stop frequently to check the tire seating and the
pressure, until you reach the correct inflation pressure.
35
Lubrication
Maintenance
WARNING:
• Do not over lubricate. If oil gets on the wheel rims or the brake shoes, it will reduce
brake performance and a longer distance to stop the bicycle will be necessary. Injury to
the rider or to others can occur.
• The chain can throw excess oil onto the wheel rim. Wipe excess oil off the chain.
• Keep all oil off the surfaces of the pedals where your feet rest.
• Using soap and hot water, wash all oil off the wheel rims, the brake shoes, the pedals,
and the tires.
• Rinse with clean water and dry completely before you ride.
• Using a light machine oil (20W), lubricate the bicycle according to the following table:
Lubrication Table (as equipped)
What
36
When
How
Pedals
every six months
Put four drops of oil where the axles go into the
pedals.
Chain
every six months
Put one drop of oil on each roller of the chain.
Wipe all excess oil off the chain.
Derailleurs
every six months
Put one drop of oil on each pivot point of the
derailleurs.
Brake Levers
every six months
Put one drop of oil on the pivot point of each
brake lever.
Wheel Brakes
every six months
Put one drop of oil on the pivot point of each
cantilever brake.
Brake and cable
every six months
Put four drops of oil into both ends of each cable.
Allow oil to soak back along the cable wire.
Rear Sprocket
Cluster
every six months
Lay the bicycle on its left side. Slowly turn the
rear wheel clockwise. Put four drops of oil in the
crack between the rear sprockets (which are
stationary) and the freewheel body (which is
turning clockwise).
Shock Fork
every six months
Lift up the rubber fork boot and dab a small
amount of grease on the fork leg just above the
plastic bushing.
Maintenance
Frequently check the bearings of the bicycle. Have a bicycle service shop lubricate the
bearings once a year or any time they do not pass the following tests:
Head Tube Bearings
The fork should turn freely and smoothly at all times. With the front wheel off the ground,
you should not be able to move the fork up, down, or side-to-side in the head tube.
Crank Bearings
The crank should turn freely and smoothly at all times and the front sprockets should not
be loose on the crank. You should not be able to move the pedal end of the crank from
side-to-side.
Maintenance
Inspection of the Bearings
Wheel Bearings
Lift each end of the bicycle off the ground and slowly spin the raised wheel by hand. The
bearings are correctly adjusted if:
• The wheel spins freely and easily.
• The weight of the spoke reflector, when you put it toward the front or rear of the
bicycle, causes the wheel to spin back and forth several times.
• There is no side-to-side movement at the wheel rim when you push it to the side with
light force.
Suspension Frame (various models)
Adjustment: The bicycle may have an adjustable shock-absorbing suspension. You
can change the suspension, as you prefer,
for a softer or a firmer ride.

WARNING: Make sure there are at
least two threads showing
above the
Adjusting Nut
so the shock does not
come loose.
