FAQ-

There are several ways to adjust the shifting on your 3 speed hub. Attached is also a video that can give you the basics as well.

Method 1:

  1. Place the shifter into #3
  2. Remove the dust cover from the shifter mechanism at the hub.
  3. There are two cable tension barrels. Remove the slack in the cable with the one nearest the front of the bike. Around 4-5 threads should be showing on the back side of the adjuster.
  4. Use the micro adjuster (smaller one) to tighten the cable just enough to see the little chain that goes into the inside of the hub to move slightly.
  5. Tighten the lock nuts on the cable
  6. Replace the dust cover
  7. Test ride!

Method 2:

  1. Place the shifter into #2
  2. Remove the dust cover
  3. Where the chain enters the hub axle is a round sight hole.
  4. Adjust the cable until the push rod begins to appear in the sight hole
  5. Tight the lock nuts up on the cable
  6. Replace the dust cover
  7. Test ride!

Here is some important info for caring for your new bike:

  • We use microfiber towels and Windex for cleaning of the paint.
  • On matte finishes a small amount of WD-40 can remove smudges.
  • Tires should be maintained at 30 psi. It is possible to go slightly lower for lighter weight riders.
  • Please check the nuts and bolts periodically for tightness
  • The chain should have around 1/2 to 1″ of slack
  • The chains are coated for corrosion resistance, and can use a general chain oil for lubrication.
  • Tires can use Armor All to dress them up. On white walls, WD-40 on a terry towel can help remove marks.
