Congratulations! You are about to install your Vekkit and go on your very first ride! Don’t worry – the process is really simple and quick. Let’s start.
Find a nice clean flat spot where you can move around the bike easily. Turn the bike upside-down, untighten the front wheel’s axle (and the brakes if needed) and remove the front wheel.
If you ordered the wheel without a tyre, first mount your tyre and tube onto the wheel. Don’t inflate it yet.
If your bike has disc brakes, please see the additional instruction for disc brakes.
Take your Vekkit wheel, remove all nuts and spacers from the axle and insert the wheel into your bike fork’s dropouts.
The wheel’s power cable should be on the opposite side from the chain. The cable should be looking opposite from the handlebar or towards the rear wheel (depending on the motor type).
If the wheel’s axle doesn’t fit into the fork’s dropouts, use the included file to narrow down the flat parts of the axle a bit. The wheel’s axle should be inserted all the way into the fork’s dropouts.
Slightly rotate the wheel with your hand and check if the wheel’s hub doesn’t touch the fork at any point. If the hub does touch the fork, place a spacer onto the axle between the fork and the hub body.
When everything rotates freely, place the axle adapters on the outer parts of the axle so that they fill the open parts of the dropouts and tighten the axle nuts nicely.
Finally, fine-tune the brakes (according to the appropriate manual) and inflate the wheel to the pressure written on the tyre.
Place the sensor on the inside of the crank arm which is opposite to the chain.
Use the rubber band that ensures the tightest fit.
Please see the additional Klick-Fix manual or the manual for the Pannier bag.
Place the cable holders on the fork’s arms and the frame’s tubes so that the cable is fixed in a neat and comfortable position.
Place the remote control on any side of your handlebars where you can easily reach the button with your finger.
The power cord’s connectors have arrows that should be matched for the right fit. Insert the connector all the way.
Before turning on the kit we recommend to give all batteries a full charge.
Take out the soft protection from under the kit battery and insert the battery.
Press and hold the kit’s power button or the remote control’s button to turn on your Vekkit.
Make sure that everything runs smoothly and enjoy your ride!
