You’ll notice an arrow on the top of the box, make sure that you’re standing the correct side.
Carefully open the bike box. Try not to damage it as you may need it in the future.
You’ll find your FLIT-16 manual and unfolding instructions at the top of the box, take this out so that you can refer to it later.
If you ordered accessories with your FLIT-16, you’ll find some of these at the top of the box. Remove these.
Then, remove the cardboard insert protecting the bike.
Next, remove your seat post and battery.

You will find your FLIT-16 charger at the bottom of the box.
