Electric bikes, or e-bikes, have become increasingly popular in recent years as a more efficient, eco-friendly, and cost-effective mode of transportation. An electric bicycle is similar to a regular bike in many ways, but there are also some differences.
Most Comfortable Riding Angle Adjustment
When holding the brake lever, the palm and arm should be folded around 35-45 degrees. Make sure to position the brake lever in the best, most accurate, and most natural position possible to minimize the chance of danger (0-90 degrees adjustment display).
b. Handlebar Angle
Adjust the handlebar by rotating it to be centered and perpendicular to the wheels' direction (you can use the mudguard as a reference).
Pre-RideCheck1. Handlebar Installation Check:
2. Pedal Check:
4. Brake Check:
a. Without applying the throttle: Squeeze the left brake lever to lock the front brake, then try to push the bike forward using the handlebar. The front wheel should not slip. Squeeze the right brake lever to lock the rear brake, then try to make the bike ahead using the handlebar. The rear wheel should not slip.
b. With the throttle applied: Start the bike in an open, spacious area. Wear appropriate safety gear and clothing, and sit on the bike. Hold down the right brake lever to lock the rear brake; lightly press the assist button. Due to the brake being applied, the bike should not move. Press the assist button. Release the brake. Test if the throttle now operates without engaging the brake.
Note: The brake (regenerative brake) may produce slight friction during the first few rides. It is usually squeaking, or the noise will disappear with use.
Dress Code Requirements
Choose simple, well-fitting clothes to avoid wearing loose or overly long clothing that may catch in the bike's tires. Choose flat or athletic shoes to better control overall speed and pedal sensation.
In conclusion, it is essential to follow the instructions carefully and perform the pre-ride check to ensure your safety. Remember to adjust your saddle and handlebar to the most comfortable riding angle and wear appropriate safety gear, including a helmet.
