Installation Checklist - RevMaster Sport

 A. Properly align the base bolts through the frame and cross arms

Align the 2 holes in the cross arm with the 2 holes in the frame. Insert a base bolt into the top of each hole in the frame and push the bolt through the cross arm (do not force the bolt through). Finger-thread a nut onto each of the base bolts, and use the 5 mm hex key and the wrench tool to secure the nut. Once all 4 base bolts are installed, test the bike to make sure that the frame is stable.

 Note: the base bolt sits into a counter sink in the yellow frame

 

B. Do not cross thread the pedal arms.

A cross-threaded crank arm is not a manufacturing defect, since cross threading can only occur during the installation of the pedals, and the bikes ship without the pedals attached.

  •  Right Pedal: The right pedal has a normal thread pattern (turn right to tighten, turn left to loosen). Use your fingers to start the pedal, so that you can feel if you start to cross thread the crank arm. Tighten the pedal with a pedal wrench.
  • Left Pedal:  The left pedal has a reverse thread pattern (turn left to tighten, turn right to loosen). Use your fingers to start the pedal, so that you can feel if you start to cross thread the crank arm. Tighten the pedal with a pedal wrench.

 

C. Do not switch the seat post and handlebar post

The handlebar post is the post that has a smooth finish on top. Insert the handlebar post into the handlebar tube. Loosely thread a handle without a washer into the main frame. Raise the handlebar post to the desired height and tighten the handle to secure the handlebar post.

 The seat post is the post that has a rough finish on top. Insert the seat post into the seat post tube. Loosely thread a handle without a washer into the main frame. Raise the seat post to the desired height and tighten the handle to secure the seat post.

 The handles are spring loaded. Once tightened, ensure that the handle does not stick out to the side from the main frame. Pull down on the handle and rotate it such that it does not stick out. Release the handle and lock it into place.

 Note: If the seat/handlebar post does not insert all the way into the frame tube, use your fingers in the frame tube to push the v-plunger out of the way.

 

D. Ensure that the water bottle cage is secured to the handlebar

Position the handlebar over the handlebar post. Loosely thread a handle with a washer through the handlebar post into the handlebar. Slide the handlebar to the desired position and tighten the handle.

 Secure the water bottle cage to the water bottle cage mount with the 3-mm screw.

 

E. Ensure that there is a brass washer on the seat handle and handlebar handle

Position the seat with seat slider over the seat post. Loosely thread a handle with a washer through the seat post into the seat slider. Slide the seat to the desired position and tighten the handle.

Position the handlebar over the handlebar post. Loosely thread a handle with a washer through the handlebar post into the handlebar. Slide the seat to the desired position and tighten the handle.
