How do I assemble my bike?
To assemble your bike, remove the bicycle and its parts from the shipping package. (Make sure you have removed all the small boxes.) Then, take the wheel and put it on the frame. Tighten the wheel axle nuts. Next, loosen the bolts that are holding the fork, then position and align the fork. Now you have to re-tighten the bolts, being careful not to overdo them.
Next, attach the pedals and install the handlebars, accessories, mirrors, and throttle/grips, and carefully tighten all hardware. To make it easy for you, we’ve made How-to Video Guides that will walk you through the process.

Can the battery self-recharge during use?
Yes it can. It is called regenerative braking and Delfast eBikes are equipped with this innovative technology. The motor generates energy and charges the battery through the brakes.
When you slightly push on one or both of the brake handlebar levers and the bike begins to slow down the motor begins to work as a generator. The battery is then being recharged. Use the handlebar brake levers instead of the pedals when using this technique.

You can easily switch to throttle mode and enjoy your ride to the fullest.
