Read This First Before You Ride
Proper inspection and routine maintenance of your eProdigy bike is essential to your safety.
Inspect your bicycle frequently, and follow a regular maintenance schedule like you would
for any regular bicycle, Make sure your bike fits you properly, being comfortable means
better performance. Check the brakes and tire pressure often, and keep the chain and the
cogset clean and lubricated. If preferable, take your bike to a local authorized dealer for
service as least once a year.
Before you ride, make sure you are aware of your city's bicycling rules and regulations.
Obey traffic laws and ensure that you have a helmet, bell, front and rear lights. It is
recommended to plan your route ahead of time and try to avoid major roads for a more
safe and pleasant journey.
The Motor and LED control panel are maintenance free! Remember to check cable
connections and wires or even nuts and bolts for any wear and tear. Tighten any lose
screws, and check the gear shifting wire to see if every step of the gear is working properly.
It's a good idea to wipe down your bike and the battery after a rainy or muggy trip.
Educate yoursef on how to overcome an emergency repair like a broken spoke or chain.
In any situation, do not ride in a manner that exceeds the limits of your ability,
Maintenance of the Battery Pack
A complete discharge and recharge of the battery is recommended when using the
battery for the first time. The battery should be fully charged every time to avoid
deterioration in the performance capacity that can occur. Store the battery in room
temperature and in a dry place. If you don't plan on using your bike for a period longer
than 3 months, store the battery with a 50% charge. Be sure the battery is never fully
discharged before storage. A fully discharged battery could fall into a deep discharge
state, which renders it incapable of holding any charge.
Always charge the battery indoors and away from liquids. When charging, keep both the
battery and charger away from heat sources, flammable materials or products. Do not
leave battery charging unattended. Don't overcharge or leave your battery charging
over-night as it may result in overheating.
Ensure that you plug all connections correctly and safely. Allow 4-6 hours for a full charge. A
full charge can last for approximately 30-60km depending on your route, terrain, and riding
manners, For longer tips, bring along the charger or carry an additional battery pack with
you. When parked, remember to take the battery with you, even with a locking system, the
battery can still be stolen. Routinely wipe dry or clean the battery connectors on the battery
mount prior to attaching the battery pack onto the bike.
WARNING - WHEN YOU GET ON YOUR eProdigy BIKE FOR THE FIRST TIME, BE VERY CAREFUL!
When in active pedal-assisted mode, your eProdigy bike moves significantly faster than a
regular bicycle. Be ready to absorb the initial torque accelerateion at the start of your
pedaling. As a general rule of thumb, do not rest your foot on the pedal while stopped. If
the motor is engaged or turned on, any pressure applied onto the pedal can cause the
torque sensor to drive the motor and move you forward.
Please make sure you understand how the gear system works with the motor. Gears ona
bike assist your pedaling, and your pedaling momentum engages the motor to assist you.
If you find it hard to pedal, you may not be generating enough momentum to initiate the
motor. Therefore, remember to gear down before attempting to climb up a hill. tis also
recommended to gear down at a stop so that when you're ready to pedal again, your
momentum will begin at ease. If the motor over takes your natural pedaling momentum,
gear up to gain more torque and speed.
Ensure that you tum off the controller panel and/or battery when dismounting the bike and
especially when vou walk the bike.
It is recommended that you do a routine tune-up of your eProdigy bike at least once a year
or once every 10,000 km ridden on the bike.
1. Parts Checklist
Check that your eProdigy bike package is correct, complete, and undamaged. Your bike
comes in a box containing the following:
+ eProdigy model bike frame and handlebar with built-in Coaxial Bottom Bracket Motor™,
J+LCD controller panel, appropriate battery mount with 2 sets of keys, and a rear wheel
* The front wheel
+ The saddle
+ Pedals
* Fenders
+ Battery and charger (might be shipped separately)
Additional items for Banff:
* The front head light
« Rear wicker basket [shipped separately)
* Front wicker basket (sold and shipped separately)
WARNING - Only 2 keys come with your bike, and eProdigy does not have any master key.
If you lost one key, you should immediately make a second copy. If both keys are
misplaced, the battery cannot be removed from the mount.
2. Mounting the Front Wheel
Make sure that the fork from the steering column is pointing forward.
2. Place the front wheel within the fork. On Banff, ensure the front wheel is between the
two brake pads on either side. Straighten the wheel and tum it to make sure is spins
freely without rubbing against the brake or forks.
3. Apply the quick release and twist the wheel of the quick release clockwise till resistance
is perceived, and then lock it. [For package that does not come with a quick release:
Hold one axle bolt with a wrench and use another wrench to tighten the bolf on the
other side. Then tighten the bolt you were holding. ]
4, Insert the brake cable and adjust the tension properly.

Caution - Never ride the bike when the front wheel is not set up correctly!
3. Assembling the Pedals
1. Look for the "R" and "L" marking on the pedals designating right and left side.
2. Slide the pedals on the crank arms.
3. Tum the right pedal axle clockwise until tight, then do the same for the left pedal.
4. Setting up the Handlebar and Saddle

Hold the front tire between your legs facing the bike while you adjust the handlebar to
straighten it. Ensure the handlebar's direction is aligned with the front wheel,
Tightly lock the head stem and the head tube in place.
Side the seat post (with the saddle already mounted in place) into the seat tube of the
bike frame.
Adjust the height and then close the quick-release lever.
Caution - Do not set the height beyond the safety line marked on the seat post.
5. Charging your Battery Pack
|.
2,
J.
Remove the battery pack from your bike.
Flug the output jack of the charger into the charger port of the battery pack first, then
plug the power cord of the charger into your home outlet. For a Whistler battery, the
switch on the battery must be in the “on” position to take the charge. Allow the battery
to be fully charged in about 4-6 hours.
After the battery i fully charged, unplug the charger.
Attention - Only use the original charger supplied by eProdigy, otherwise warranty may be void.
6. Removing and Installing the Battery Pack
The battery is an important and costly part of the bike. The battery mount is designed to
lock the battery into place with a key to prevent theft. It is recommended to take the
battery with you while your bike is parked unattended and to remove the battery from the
bike to charge it.
To remove the battery pack:
1. Use the key to unlock the battery pack.
2. For Banff: Pull with the handle at the end of the battery pack and extract the entire
battery from the end of the rear camer rack.
3. For Whistler: Battery should pop out when you use the key to unlock the battery.
Note - The battery pack can be heavy, so be careful not to drop it.
To install the battery pack for Banff:
1. Align the track below the battery pack and to bottom of the rear camer.
2. Push the battery pack into the rear camer until it is far enough to align with the lock.
3. Lock the battery pack in before riding.
To install the battery pack for Whistler:
1. Insert the battery from the bottom and then glide it into the battery mount,
/. The Coaxial Bottom Bracket Motor™ System
Your eProdigy bike is equipped with a world patent pending Coaxial Bottom Bracket
Motor™ system. It is an electronic system solely developed by Achiever® for eProdigy bikes.
When the motor is ON, power assist is triggered when you pedal forward or when you use
the thrumb throttle. The motor stops when you stop pedaling or when you use the brakes. In
other words, power assist happens as long as you pedal or hold down the thumb throttle.
The motor will also stop when the bike has reached maximum speed. The motor works
together with the gears, so using the bike's gear system will help maximize the output torque
of the motor.
Key Features:
Utilizes the rear gears of the bike for remarkable climbing power and maximum efficiency
Keeps gravity of the bike low and centered for optimal balance
Keeps the wheels light for minimum rolling resistance
when freewheeling
Change flat tires like on a traditional bicycle
without disconnecting wires

9. Maximizing the Riding Range
Many factors affect the rate of energy consumption and hence affect the riding range.
* Fully charge the battery before a long journey.
* Utilize the bike's rear gears to optimize on motor efficiency.
* Rough road conditions and hilly terrain will consume more energy.
» Camying more welght on the bike will consume more energy.
* Keeping the tires properly inflated and keeping your bike clean and well lubricated
will save energy.
« Making sure that both wheels move freely when brakes are not applied will save energy.
* Ensure brakes are adjusted well.
* When the battery is turned off, your bike functions as a regular bicycle. You might
want to tum off the motor and battery while riding on level roads or down hill, so that you
can conserve the battery for later use.
Additional Care and Maintanence
* Avoid parking your eProdigy bike where it can be stolen.
* An eProdigy bike is designed for regular road use for a single person. Using your bike for
extreme maneuvers, such as extreme off-road use, jumping, or camying excessive load will
damage your eProdigy bike and could cause serious injury. Do not ride in a manner that
exceeds the limits of your ability.
