per charge.
By pressing the up/down buttons on the left lever you may choose
the appropriate assist level.
10
 Throttle:
When not pedaling, the “walk assist” feature can be activated by
turning the throttle. This feature is well suited for pulling the e-bike
uphill. When the pedals and the throttle are activated simultaneously
it is possible to variably adjust the speed up to max speed level.
It is advisable to use the throttle when driving in heavy traffic.
This is suitable for brief accelerations in connection with overtaking of
slow-moving cyclists and will allow you to react promptly.
The motor will disconnect at a speed of 24.6 km/h.
1.5 Troubleshooting
The error indicator will appear in the display to show possible system
errors. A code and a wrench symbol will show the error type.
The error code will appear in
the “speed indication” space in
the centre of the display.
Error code numbers range from
01 to 13 indicating the different
error types.
Final error diagnosing requires skilled personnel. Contact your dealer
for assistance.

06: too high voltage (>15A)
09: Error on the sensor at the bottom bracket
10: Error in data transmission between throttle and display
12: Error on display/display communication
13: Voltage error: system switched off due to too high voltage.

using the e-bike.
12
4. ADJUSTMENT OF SADDLE
The height of the saddle can
be adjusted by loosening the
Allen bolt, and then adjusting
the saddle to the desired position.
The suspension of the seat
post can be adjusted by turning
the Allen bolt at the bottom of
the seat post.
5. BATTERY AND CHARGER
5.1 Mounting and dismounting of the battery
The battery is
integrated in the
bicycle chain case.
Use the enclosed
key to mount and
dismount
the
battery.
Fit the battery into the chain case and use the enclosed key to
lock it into position. Remove the key during the ride. Please note that
the key can only be removed if the battery is mounted correctly.
When the battery is mounted in the chain case the electrical system will automatically turn on.
13
5.2 Connection of charger
There a 2 options for connecting the charger / battery charging:
1. Plug in the charger on the
left side of the display. Please
note that the battery must be
mounted in the chain case.
After charging insert the
little rubber cap in the socket
to protect against dirt.
2. The battery may be
dismount-ed and removed for
charging indoors.
Before charging is initiated
the enclosed adapter must be
mounted on the battery.
Adapter.
Adapter mounted and charging
plug inserted.
14
5.3 Use of battery charger
1. Charging must take place indoors or under a pent roof, since the
charger is not waterproof.
2. Plug in the charger on the left side of the display or dismount the
battery and attached the adapter to the battery.
3. Put the mains plug (230v) into the power socket and switch on the
charger.
4. The red diode will be on, as long as charging takes place.
5. When the diode changes from red to green, charging is complete
and the e-bike is ready.
6. Turn off the charger but do not remove it from the socket until you
are going to use the e-bike again.
5.4 Charging
The MONTY Electric e-bike uses maintenance-free Panasonic
Li-ION batteries. Please note, that the battery can be dismantled. The
charging capacity of the battery is only 40% when delivered from
the factory. Before commissioning it is therefore necessary to charge
the battery to full capacity using the enclosed battery charger (Green
diode is on).
In order to achieve maximum battery life and range of the e-bike
we recommend that charging takes place in a heated room. By temperatures below 20ºC prolonged charging time must be expected, with the result that charging of the battery to full capacity
cannot take place which again leads to reduced driving range. Please
note that the capacity of the battery will decrease when temperatures fall below 20ºC. Optimum battery charging conditions are
at 20ºC. If the battery is exposed to direct sunlight the battery life deteriorates considerably.
When the battery is taken indoors for charging, condensation
may occur inside the battery as well as on the outside. Please therefore do not start charging until the condensation has disappeared.
The battery contains a printed circuit board that controls each battery
cell. If charging takes place while there is still some condensation in
the battery this printed circuit board may be damaged. Rechargeable
batteries must always be kept in dry conditions and dismantled from
any equipment.
15
Memory effect does not occur in Li-ION batteries. It is thus
unnecessary to discharge the battery before starting a recharge.
Charging of the Li-ION battery at many frequent intervals
may prolong the battery life. However, please note that once charging of the battery has been started you should not discontinue the
process as this may have a negative influence on the battery life.
.Do not pull the wires when dismounting the charger from
the battery. Grab hold of the plug and pull it carefully out of the battery. Never leave the battery in the charger when the charger is off.
Please note that the capacity of the battery will weaken over time
and at lower temperatures. The more you use your e-bike the more
the capacity will decrease thereby affecting the range. Over time the
reduced battery performance will also be noticeable when driving in a
hilly countryside. The battery life will normally allow charging / discharging up to 600 times. Please also note that periods with low temperatures will influence the capacity and thus the performance of the
battery negatively. This will change when the temperature increases
to approx. 20ºC.
Other parameters of major importance for the performance/
range are user weight, driving manners, terrain, surface and tire
pressure. The user himself/herself may also influence the performance/range depending on how much pedal power is used.
Charging to full capacity should take place once a month
(full charge = green diode on charger is on).
5.5 Storage for the winter
If you put away your e-bike for a longer period (more than one
month), it will be sufficient to charge the battery once a month. Before
putting the battery away for storage you should make sure that it is
fully charged, as the battery will be damaged by being left totally or
partly discharged for a longer period.
5.6 Warning


Do not heats, short, puncture or in any other way damage the battery.
Do not divide or destroy the battery.
Do not throw the battery into open fire.
Do not lower the battery into water or any other liquid.
When charging the battery only use the enclosed battery charger.
Do not charge the battery at temperature below 0ºC or above 45ºC.
Do not cover the battery charger.

5.7 Disposal of battery
According to the European Union's WEEE Directive 2002/96/ EC on Waste of Electronic and Electrical Equipment special rules apply for disposal of
batteries.
This symbol indicates that when the end-user
wishes to discard battery products, it must be sent to
separate collection facilities for recovery and recycling. By separating
this product from other household-type waste, the volume of waste
sent to incinerators or land-fills will be reduced and natural resources
will thus be conserved.
Please contact your dealer in case you have any questions.
6. DRIVING INSTRUCTIONS
The auxiliary motor works as follows: When the pedals are activated a sensor sends a signal to the electronic controller which then
starts the motor. The power of the auxiliary motor is adjusted according to the chosen assist level. During the ride you may adjust the assist level according to actual need. If you drive uphill you may apply
full power whereas when you go downhill you may disconnect the
motor.
A cut-off function is integrated in both lever brakes. This means
that if you activate the lever brake the motor will instantly turn off
automatically. When the lever brake is released, the assist function
will automatically connect again.
The electronic controller will automatically disconnect the motor when
you stop pedaling. Likewise the controller will disconnect the motor
when your speed exceeds 24.6 km/h.
