4. Riding Instructions

Do not ride tandem on 

your e-bike under any 

circumstances. 

Do not ride while 

walking a pet or when 

holding an object.  

Do not ride on rough trails, 

including mountain trails.  

Do not step on your e-bike to

Do not use your e-bike to do “tricks” 

such as pulling a wheelie, performing 

jumps, or riding down stairs.  

Do not ride under the 

influence of alcohol or 

any other substances.  

• Read the entirety of this userʼs manual carefully before your  

    first ride and fully abide by the warnings and guidelines  

    that are contained therein.

• Misuse of your e-bike can result in injury.

 

•  Although your e-bike was produced with strict quality 

     assurance practices, there is a possibility that damage    

  

     could have occurred in transit. If you identify defects with          

     your bike upon receiving it, please contact us at      

   

     1-855-GO-GENZE

•  Consult your retailer before riding an e-bike if you are 

     over 230 lbs.

Make sure that wires are not entangled

4. Riding Instructions

Do not only use your front brake.

Ensure the kickstand is 

up before every ride.

Applying the brakes abruptly 

on a wet or icy surface may 

cause the bike to skid 

uncontrollably.

Avoid wearing loose-fitting clothing 

that might get caught in the e-bikeʼs 

chain or in other moving parts.

Refrain from cycling in high 

heels, slippers, sandals, or 

while barefoot. Always wear 

closed toed footwear while 

riding your GenZe e-bike.  

Avoid placing lubricant on 

the brakes or the wheel rim, 

as it will significantly 

weaken braking power.

Placing an excessive load on your 

bike may cause you to lose 

control.

Creak!

10 / 11

Always use proper 

hand signals.

If you are a beginner, make sure you practice in a large open 

area before riding on public roads.

Do not allow anyone who does not know how to control an 

e-bike to ride your e-bike. 

Make sure that your e-bike is set to “Pedal Assist 1” before you 

start and pedal slowly at first to avoid unexpected acceleration.

5. Assembly and Adjustment

 Correct Riding Position

•  The correct riding position allows you to maneuver the 

    handlebar and apply the brakes when needed.

• Adjust the seatʼs height so that both of your toes can  

    touch the ground when you sit on the seat.

•  There should be at least a 2-inch gap

    between yourself and the top tube       

    when you are standing over 

    the e-bike. 

    (this applies to the e101 only)

Seat Assembly and Height Adjustment

1. Insert the seat post into the frame until the insertion marks  

    (upper & lower) are no longer visible. Next, adjust the   

    seat post to the appropriate height and tighten the nut  

    and close the lever to securely fasten the seat.

2. Securing the fastener should take a considerable amount  

    of force. Check with your retailer or authorized service   

    center for proper installation instructions as the seatʼs       

    height should vary depending on your height. 

Front Wheel Assembly

• Front wheels need to be assembled by technical service at       

    your retailer. 

• Make sure that the front and rear hubs are correctly set as       

    shown in Figures 1 and 2 below.

• Fasten the quick release lever on the axle as shown in  

    

   Figures 3 and 4 below.

• You should exert considerable force when fastening the  

    

    quick release. If the lever opens with ease, it may not have       

    been securely fastened.

Tire Inflation

• Fill tires to recommended pressure as indicated on the  

    

    sidewall of the tire.

Pedal Assembly

*Make sure that the pedals are mounted on their respective 

sides, as labeled. Failure to do so will prevent their being 

removed or reattached.*

• The left and right pedals are fastened by screws rotating  

    in the opposite directions.

• The pedal with “R” marked on one side is the Right Pedal.  

    The pedal with the “L” marked on one side is the Left Pedal.

• Use a 15mm spanner and make sure that the pedal axle  

    and the gear crank arm are perpendicular to each other  

    when attaching the pedals.

Brakes

• Please note that all brake services need to be conducted   

    by the technical service department at your retailer or at  

    a GenZe Service Center. 

• Riding with improperly adjusted brakes or worn brake  

    pads can result in serious injury or death. 

• Adjust the brake lever if the distance between the lever   

    and the handlebar is too great.

• Make sure that the disc is fully coupled to the frame and  

    securely held.

• Insert the disc into the brake body (attach the front wheel)  

    and then fix the brake wire.

• Squeeze the brake lever two to three times to see whether  

    the brake pad touches the disc.

How to Use and Adjust Gears

• If your GenZe e-Bike is not shifting correctly:

       o Check the wire tension.

       o If the wire is loose, rotate the bolt on the shifting lever         

          counter-clockwise.

       o If the wire is not loose, choose the bolt marked ʻHʼ  

             

          between the two adjusting bolts for the front derailleur           

          and rotate it counter-clockwise one to two turns.

       o Rotate the bolt marked ʻHʼ one turn to the left to adjust    

          gear 3 of the front derailleur, and the bolt marked ʻLʼ to   

          adjust the large gears of the rear derailleur.

If the problem still exists, consult your local retailer or a GenZe 

technical service center by calling 1-855-GO-GENZE.

 

Avoid using extreme combinations of gears such as those 

shown in Figure 4. They can cause excessive traction between 

the sprocket and the chain, reducing the service life of your 

e-bike.

8. Instructions for Riding

    Your Electric Bicycle

1.  Install the battery.

2.  Turn the e-bike on.

   • You can use your bike in pedal assist mode (modes 1, 2, 3, 4,  

       and 5) or as an e-bike by twisting only the throttle in 0 mode. 

   • Note that the e-bike mode requires the inside part of the     

       right grip/throttle to be twisted slightly.

   • When the instrument panel turns on, Pedal Assist 1 is the 

       default mode.

       o Starting at Pedal Assist 1 is required to avoid an accident  

          and to prevent sudden acceleration.

3.  Pedal slowly at Pedal Assist 1 to start the motor.

       o The motor wakes up when the crank rotates at least    

           45 degrees.

4.  Press the riding mode switch at Pedal Assist 1 to adjust up to   

      speed 5.

       o In general, regular surfaces require a lower speed, and   

           downhill requires a higher speed.

5.  Pressing either brake will deactivate the motor.

6.  Disconnect the battery if you will not use the e-bike for an     

      extended period of time.

•  This function is the same as riding a regular bicycle.

•  Select speed 4 on the right shifter when riding on a regular      

     surface in pedal mode.

•  In e-bike mode, the recommended positions for the right shifter   

     are between speeds 4 and 6 on regular surfaces and between 1  

     and 3 for downhill sections.
