The left and right pedal of a bicycle have a different thread direction. The left pedal has a thread going left (anti clockwise) and will need to be mounted on the left crank. The left pedal is marked with an L on the end of the thread.
The right pedal is already mounted inwards on the right crank. Please remove this pedal and mount it on the right crank moving the thread clockwise. Both pedals are pre-greased and will need to be mounted securely. This can be done using a size 15 wrench.
For transport purposes the handlebar is twisted 90 degrees and mounted. Use an Allen key to open the handlebar and move it into position and to twist the handlebar into the right angle. Please refer to the video below to see how to do this.

It is our policy to dispatch items ordered in the shortest possible time, but we cannot be held responsible for any delays in transit, so please allow a sufficient time thereafter for delivery to your respective country. Orders to UK and the rest of Europe shall be delivered within 30 days of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
7.2 Delivery will be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us.

Every battery gets discharged over time. This process is called self-discharge. If the battery is left to discharged of a long period of time the battery will find itself in a "deep discharge" state. A deep discharge may cause permanent damage to the battery pack. To prevent this, it is imperative that the charging instructions in the manual of the respective E-Bike be closely monitored.
When receiving a new e-bike it is important to follow the charging instructions. E-bikes are delivered with an empty battery pack. A battery pack that is empty and not charged, may get in a deep discharge within a very short time and cause failure. The warranty is void in the event of deep discharge.
The following Sparta models:

The following models of Batavus:
