Service manual for non-standard bikes – Cargo and Handbike.
Cargo Bikes, also called Family Bikes, are designated to carry cargo. For this purpose these bikes are equipped in cases with carrying capacity up to 100 kg or maximum up to 4 children. While transporting children remember to fasten their seatbelts which may be found by the benches of the cases. Electric versions of Family Bikes are equipped in an engine with support, which facilitates moving around on difficult terrain and assists in riding a loaded bike. Fully charged battery for the support will last for approx. 50 km – it is independent from the conditions or riding and use. Battery charging indicator is located by the handlebars of electric bikes. We may select the applied engine power on it (on a scale from 1 to 6) which allows for adequate use of power towards the carried load. You may check the charging status of the battery support as well as turn on/off the lights at the bike’s back using the indicator.
Note: Turning in case of a Cargo bike differs from turning of a standard bike, due to the wheel base at the front, which results in the necessity of making wider turns.
Handbike – bikes propelled by the force of hands and arms. Equipped in 3 wheels (2 at the back and 1 at the front) and a seat. Handlebars are connected with a drive component of bikes located by the front wheel. Once you take your seat, place your legs on the nets on both sides of the front wheel in order to ensure a stable position while ridding. The bike gains speed in the course of carrying out round, forward moves with handlebars (similar to rowing). Brakes are located in the standard location – close to driver’s handles. The bike is equipped in torpedo type of brake – brake system launched through withdrawing pedals.
