FLAUNT e-Bike Assembly Instructions
FLAUNT Electric Bicycle Assembly Manual
These instructions are for any FLAUNT customer that chooses to have their FLAUNT Electric Bicycle shipped directly to their home.
Here is what you'll need to do:
- Unpack box
- Attach and tighten handlebars
- Attach and tighten front wheel
- Screw in pedals
- Make preferred adjustments for comfort
- Safety check
Bicycle Safety Recommendation: We always recommend taking our bikes (or any bike) to your local bike shop to make sure that your bicycle is safely adjusted and road-worthy, and properly maintained as time goes on. That being said, many of our customers choose to assemble their bikes on their own, and being that your bike will arrive nearly 70% pre-assembled, the final assembly is not too difficult for many of our customers. Local bike mechanics will make sure everything is tightened perfectly, and perfectly adjusted for comfort & safety, plus they’re usually rather friendly people and will be able to assist you with standard bike parts and accessories along the way. Most dealers will charge $40-$50 for this final assembly service.
- Attach handlebars (with allen key, take off front clamp, put bars into place, tighten clamp back on)
- Attach pedals (they screw into the crank arms, and are marked L or R for left or right side pedal)
- Assemble front tire (slide the disc brake into the brake calipers)
-once the wheel axel is inserted into the grooves on the bottom of the shocks,tighten the front quick-release, and clamp
Make final adjustments to brakes, handlebar and seat height for comfort, then tighten (brakes, handlebar, seat quick release)
Your bike has been partially pre-assembled and requires only a few simple steps to get it ready for you to ride:
- 4mm allen key (Atticus)
- 5mm allen key (Vicko)
- 6mm hex key (Vicko City Cruiser)
- 15mm Wrench (All bikes - pedals)
- 19mm Wrench (rear axel – not needed for basic assembly)
- #2 Phillips screwdriver (handlebar accessories)
Opening Your FLAUNT e-Bike Box
Open the box after cutting the nylon bands, carefully reach in and remove your bike from the box, and gently rest the bike in place with the kickstand down
Remove all of the inside foam, cardboard, and bubble wrap protection.
Remove all additional contents from the box, and place in a safe area.
FLAUNT Atticus & Vicko Hybrid Cruiser Handlebar / Stem Installation:
(For FLAUNT Vicko City Cruiser – please skip this section)
Install the handlebars onto handlebar stem, and tighten the (4) 4mm bolts in the pattern seen here.
If needed, adjust the handlebars for comfort by loosening the (4) 4mm handlebar binding bolts with a 4mm allen key, and rotating handlebars for desired angle. When ready, tighten the (4) 4mm handlebar binding bolts (diagonally)
Align the stem so that it is perpendicular with the front wheel, then firmly tighten the (2) 5mm stem binder bolts.
FLAUNT Vicko City Cruiser Handlebar / Stem Installation:
Install the handlebars onto handlebar stem, and tighten the (2) 5mm bolts.
If needed, adjust the handlebars for comfort by loosening the (2) 5mm bolts with the 5mm allen key, and rotating handlebars. When ready, tighten the (2) 5mm bolts.
Align the stem with the front wheel, and firmly tighten the 6mm stem-binder bolt.
If needed, loosen Stem Binder Bolt to adjust the height of the stem. When ready, re-tighten the Stem Binder Bolt.
To adjust the angle of the stem, loosen the 5mm Angle Adjusting Bolt to the desired angle. Then re-tighten the Angle Adjusting Bolt. Do not adjust the Pivot Bolt, it does not loosen!
FLAUNT Electric Bicycle Front Wheel Installation:
Provided is a quick release skewer rod that attaches the front wheel to the fork.
(The skewer is a rod that passes through the hub’s hollow axle, for quick and easy wheel installation)
Insert wheel into front fork dropouts, paying attention to the springs. One spring for each side, with the wide portion of the spring facing out.
Make sure that the axle is seated properly in the front fork dropouts, and that the brake rotor is placed properly in between the brake pads to make sure the rotor is not rubbing against the brake pads.
With the quick release in the open position, tighten the nut opposite of the quick release lever, until you feel firm resistance.
Close the quick release hand lever to lock the axle. Make sure the closed lever is tightened, and provides for a tight and secure wheel assembly.
Remove pedals from packaging. Pedals are marked on the threaded ends of each pedal - “L” for the Left Pedal, and “R” for the Right Pedal. (The left pedal is left threaded and can only be attached to the left side of the bicycle. The right is standard threaded and can only be attached to the right side of the bicycle.
With a 15mm wrench, attach pedals to the crank arms and make sure that the pedals are tightened firmly. Be careful not to over-tighten and strip the threads from the aluminum crank arm.
Insert seat into seat tube, to desired height. Once you have achieved the correct height, tighten the quick-release clamp lever by twisting the lever and/or thumb screw clockwise, in the open position. Close quick release clamp lever until the seat is held firmly in place, so that you can not move the seat.
Now that your bike is full assembled, you will want to make sure everything is in the correct position, and tightened so that there is no movement in the parts that are not supposed to move, like the brakes, handlebars, and seat. Make sure that the front wheel is tightly secured and stable. Check brakes before attempting to ride on the road. *Again, we always recommend taking our bikes (or any bike) to your local bike shop to make sure that your bicycle is safely adjusted and road-worthy, and properly maintained as time goes on.
