ATTENTION:If you cannot install the part correctly, and follow these steps safely, we suggest you find a certified bike mechanic for assembly, maintenance and repair.

 Tools and parts: the new crank, 8mm Allen wrench, the crank puller

 

Step:

1. Remove the right and left pedal. (pedals installation guide)

2. Use 8mm Allen wrench to loosen the left crank arm bolts by turning counterclockwise, remove and put them aside.

3. Use the crank puller carefully to thread into the crank clockwise by hand, be careful not to cross thread or damage the threads.

4. Use the crank puller to press the crank off the bottom bracket. Hold the crank arm and push down on the crank puller to engage the inner bolt, which will press against the bottom bracket and will eventually remove the crank. Be careful not to get hurt.

5. Remove the crank puller from the crank arm.

6. When you remove the right crank, be careful of the chain, allow the chain to hang out of the way.

Inspection:

1. Check that the crank is installed firmly and rotated smoothly.

2. Press the button “i”to turn on the e-bike system, turn the shifter to check whether the derailleur system can work normally.

3. Check that the chain performs well. Lift the rear wheel off the ground, rotate the cranks to check the chain is properly mounted on the chainring.
