Cyclist Size Guide and Recommendations

REGULATE YOUR BICYCLE

While seated on the bicycle saddle and with the heal placed on the pedal, the leg should be naturally stretched;

The handlebars should be at the same level as the saddle, or 5cm above it, at the maximum;

The bicycle saddle should be parallel to the ground or slightly slanting forward;

The brake levers and gear shifters should be adjusted so that they are easily accessible to the cyclist while seated on the bicycle;

The left lever controls the front brake and the right lever controls the rear brake.

RECOMMENDATIONS

 Dear Cyclist,

It is important to comply with the road traffic regulations of the country where the equipment is being used.

The maximum weight of the cyclist, including baggage, should not exceed 100kg (220lb).

A protective helmet should always be worn while cycling and the use of reflective apparel is recommended while cycling on public roads.

Gloves, eyewear and padded shorts are also recommended for added comfort while cycling.

Attention: If abnormal pain occurs in the muscles or joints, please consult an ergonomics specialist so that an alteration in the bicycle’s regulation may be recommended. If the pain persists, please consult your physician.

As for the bicycle,

Use only original spare parts in the bicycle. Failure to use original parts invalidates the warranty and puts the integrity of the bicycle and the cyclist at risk.

Whenever the bicycle is used, check for gaps in the handlebars, wheels, pedal unit, pedals and steering system.

Regularly check (at the minimum, every 15 hours of use) the frame and forks for any damage or fissures which may have occurred.

Whenever a strange sound is detected, stop using the bicycle and try to determine the cause of the sound. If the cause cannot be determined, stop using the bicycle and take it to a specialised technician.

The rims have a joint which aids in the braking mechanism, in addition to indicating their wear. When this fissure disappears (worn rim), the rims should be replaced.

MAINTENANCE

PEDALS

Remove the pedals, rotating them outwards. With the bicycle turned forward, the right pedal rotating to the right; the left pedal rotating to the left.

Comply with the letter marked at the top of the screw drive (R-right side; L-left side).

Ideally, the tightening should be readjusted with a 15mm wrench every 8 days of use.

BRAKES

Comply with the brake tuning done by the Manufacturer and/or by Technicians.

Regulate the cable tension (through the lever adjusters or the calipers) so that the pads are 2mm from the surface of the wheel’s brake rim and verify the tightening of the pads’ fixing screws.

Important:

  • Whenever the brake pads are less than 6mm thick, with no visible grooving or 50% of the original size, they should be substituted.
  • Whenever the road surface is wet, decrease speed and increase the safety distance.

TYRES

The tyres should be maintained at the pressure indicated on their side wall for both safety and comfort.

They should be substituted whenever the tyre surface is worn, thereby affecting its normal stability/adherence.

HANDLEBARS

If the bicycle is articulated, to detach the handlebars, loosen the keyway, remove it from the hinge slot and next pull the keyway to the side until the security hole is unblocked.
