Adjustments, seat & handlebar height, bearingadjustment
Adjustment of Seat Height, On a normal push bike I always adjusted the seat height so I could get maximum thrust on to the pedals, With an E bike it seems more important partly due to the weight of the machne to be able to place both feet on the ground when stationary, but now I cannnot get good thrust on to the pedals, adjust the height to get reasonable force and come off the saddle when stopped? Also I could use a higher top gear.
Height of Handlebars I found that in the ''normal'' leaning forward riding position I had so much weight on the bars that I found it difficult to signal, I have raised the handlebars to near maximum height so now have less weight on the bars and can now signal satisfactorily. I need to purchase some electrical inicators.
Wheel bearing Checking and Adjustment This is carried out easily with a push bike, turn it upside down, check for play and free movement. How is this carried out with a heavy Ebike with disc brakes and a hub motor? I considered using a car jack under the crank, but would probably need an assistant whilst checks were undertaken.
Apologies to any previous bloggs on these topics, I am a relatvely newboy.
