1. Safety Notes

1.1 Personal Safety:
This e-bike is intended for use on paved roads or paths only. Using the e-bike for any other purpose may result in serious injury. Before you ride this e-bike in a busy area or on public roads, practice riding in a safe area free of hazards. Take time to learn the e-bike’s controls and power. It is your responsibility to identify and follow all local laws and regulations, including fitting your e-bike with any additional equipment necessary to comply with local laws. At night your e-bike MUST have white front lights and red rear lights lit. It MUST also be fitted with a red rear reflector and amber pedal reflectors. Use caution when loading your e-bike into a car or when mounting it on a bicycle carrier.
1.2 E-bike Safety:
You must be 18 or over to ride this e-bike. Your e-bike is designed for a maximum permitted overall weight (rider + cargo) of 275lbs. Your bike should be inspected or assembled by someone experienced with bike mechanics prior to use. Proper assembly is vital for safety and for your warranty coverage as damages due to improper assembly are not covered under warranty. Improper assembly of critical components could lead to serious injury and or death. Do not submerge your e-bike in water. Be aware that the speed at which you are traveling may be faster than you are used to, especially when accelerating.
1.3 Electrical Safety:
Only use the charger supplied by Ride1UP. Do not store the bike or battery plugged into a wall outlet. Unplug the battery before leaving the bike alone. Never modify the charger in any way. The charger has been designed for a specific voltage, always check that the outlet’s voltage is the same as that stated on the rating label. A charger that is suitable for one type of battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with another battery pack; never use the charger with another appliance or attempt to charge this product with another charger. Before use, check the charger cord for signs of damage. A damaged or entangled charger cord increases the risk of fire and electric shock. Keep the charger cord away from hot surfaces and sharp edges. Do not handle the charger with wet hands. Do not store or charge the appliance outdoors. The charger must be removed from the socket before removing the battery, cleaning, or maintaining the appliance.
1.4 Brake Safety:
Regularly check your brakes for signs of wear and tear. Any worn parts must be repaired or replaced immediately. Be careful while getting used to the brakes. Practice emergency stops in a place clear of traffic until you are comfortable controlling your e-bike. Wet weather reduces your braking power and the grip of the brakes. Reduce your speed and be aware of longer stopping distances when cycling in wet conditions. Braking on unpaved surfaces will differ. Be sure to practice braking on different surface types. Ensure that braking surfaces and brake pads are free of wax, grease, and oil. Do not pedal and brake at the same time as this will cause excessive wear.
1.5 Maintenance:
Many parts on your e-bike are subject to a higher degree of wear due to their function and depending on their use. Have your e-bike checked regularly at a professional bike shop and have any worn parts replaced. After an accident or crash, you must take your e-bike to a bike repair specialist to make sure that it is safe to ride. Be aware that damage may not be visible. Failure to do this may result in serious injury. Any form of crack, scratches, or change of coloring in highly stressed areas indicates that the life expectancy of the part has been reached and it should be replaced immediately. Ensure the battery is removed from the bike before carrying out any maintenance. Make sure that all screws and bolts are tightened securely before riding. You must always use genuine replacement parts when performing maintenance on your e-bike. Regularly check the tire pressures (See sidewall of your tire for correct psi range) and regularly check the tread depth of tires.
1.6 Additional Warnings:
The e-bike is intended for use by those at least eighteen years of age. Use by anyone below the age of eighteen is prohibited. Have installation/assembly checked by a professional bike mechanic or completed entirely by a bike mechanic prior to riding. Failure to do so could result in serious injury and/or death. When operating your e-bike: Do not wear earplugs, headphones, headsets, or use a cell phone while riding. Never hitch rides on other vehicles. Never hold an item that interferes with your grip on the handlebars & never be under the influence of alcohol or drugs while riding.
ALWAYS wear a helmet when riding your e-bike. Failure to do so may result in serious injury and/or death. It is your obligation to check all applicable laws for bicycle rules governing: operation, equipment, use, and appropriate places for operation. Do not exceed local speed restrictions.
Maintain your brakes such that you can at least execute a one-braked-wheel skid on dry, level, clean pavement. Never configure your e-bike such that the handlebars are higher than a rider’s shoulders. In addition to front and rear reflectors, you must also ensure that the e-bike is equipped with side reflectors.
Never ride your e-bike without the seat provided with the e-bike.
This e-bike is not meant for downhill riding or rocky trails. The e-bike is for paved or smooth surfaces only. Do not ride your e-bike in unsafe weather conditions or when the road surface is comprised, of ice, snow, water, sand, or anything else that could cause a loss of traction. Failure to follow this rule may result in serious injury and/or death.
Routine maintenance checks are required on your e-bike. Check all-important connections, brake functionality, and ensure axel nuts are secured before riding. Failure to do so may result in serious injury and/or death. Do not ride your bike at night without working front lights and rear tail lights. Failure to do so may result in serious injury and/or death.
Keep your e-bike and packaging away from children. Lithium-Ion batteries can be extremely dangerous if stored or used improperly. Please learn proper care of your battery at http://batteryuniversity.com/. Damage to your lithium battery from misuse could result in serious injury, hazardous smoke and fires, and/or death.  Special precautions must be taken if you transport your e-bike with you during air travel, or if shipped by air courier. Be sure to follow all requirements of airlines and air couriers regarding lithium batteries if you take your e-bike with you during air travel, or if you ship your e-bike by air courier.
