Adjusting your bike correctly

    What are the benefits of ergonomics?

    The more ergonomically the e-bike or bicycle is adapted to its rider, the better your ride will be. Better means: painless, safe and more efficient. Many things are easy to adjust, but some components such as the saddle, handlebars, stems, grips or pedals may need to be adapted to the individual physique.

    Top tips

    The human body is always individual, so measurement data can only be a basis for the adjustment operations. When making adjustments you should also pay attention to your personal perception. Adjust things one after the other, so that you get a feeling for the effect of individual factors - don't adjust everything at once. And use suitable tools, which makes the work easier and prevents damage. When modifying the settings, be sure to observe the specified torque for the individual screw connections.
