How to unbox your FLIT-16
First, carefully open the box using a pen knife or scissors. Try not to damage it as you may need it for the future.
Take out any accessories on the top layer of the box, then remove your seat post, manual and folding instructions, charging lead and battery.
Keep the manual and folding instructions to hand so that you can refer to these later.
Next, remove the cardboard insert to reveal your ebike.
Then take out your bike! You’ll notice that if you ordered mudguards or a kickstand, these have already been fitted to your bike for you.
Remove the seat post lock keys from the handlebars. Keep these safe! You'll need these to be able to lock the seat post and battery into place.
Next, remove the plastic covers on the rear hub motor and front wheel nut.
Then, cut the cable ties on the bike to remove the protective packaging.
Install the battery
Remove the battery from its box.
Turn the battery on by pressing and holding the power button until the LED lights illuminate.
Next, install the battery into the bike.
To do this, align the charging port with the charging port cover on the bike and slide the battery into the top tube.
Install the seat post
Next, undo the seat post quick release and insert the seat post.
Tighten the quick release.
You can lock the seat post and battery into place at this point.
To do so, push the button on the seat post quick release.
To unlock again, insert the key and twist.
Assemble the Charger
You will find the second part of your FLIT-16 charger at the bottom of the box, beneath the cardboard insert that your bike was sitting on.
Remove the charger its box, and assemble together with the charging lead (which you should have already taken out from the top of the box).
