Unpacked the box and everything was there and even though the outside of the box had some damage/holes in it, everything made it and was in good shape!
BTW, it is possible to put turn the front fork the wrong way before you install the handle bars and put the front tire on. Don't ask me how I know. :-) The part at the top of the front fork where the handle bars are attached was turned the wrong way when I unpacked it and I didn't catch it before I installed the handle bars and the front tire. LOL. But that didn't slow me down much, just glad no one knows about it. Well, almost no one. :-) That is where a better video on Rambo would have helped. The one I watched was up close and didn't give a big view of what was being done. I should have probably looked at youtube as well.
There were also a couple of issues with the "fit" of the equipment. The slot on the front fork on the side of the break wheel was NOT big enough for the front tire axle bolt to slide down in. There was no way it would slide down in the slot, and it wasn't just the paint job that made it too narrow. I had to get a file and enlarge the opening by filing metal to get it to slide down in the slot. No big deal, but slowed me down a bit.
Got the rear fender put on pretty quickly but they include 2 lengths of connector arms, one set is longer than the other. It is just up to you to figure out which one fits better for your bike. And then putting on the front fender, the bolts are too big to attach the lower end to the fork. Had to drill out the holes so the bolts would fit. Again, no big deal but not expected.
Other than that, I have it together except for the PDW "front fender". Still not sure how that will go on, and will probably have to call and ask John tomorrow to be sure. I think I will need to unbolt the battery holder to be able to get it attached to the bike frame
I am charging the battery tonight, so did not use get to see the motor in action, but I did ride it a little after assembly and was surprised how well it rode without any motor help. Feels like a normal bike, not heavy or clunky at all.
The people assembling Walmart bikes obviously have no clue either. I walk through their bike department and shake my head at all the stuff put on wrong and forks put on backwards!
Hope you really enjoy the bike!
No biggy at the moment because rain is NOT in the forecast here :-(
If you can find anything with better instructions these days let me know. They almost don’t exist with anything, and any brand! Cause they are all made in China and they don’t know how to make good instructions in English.
So maybe it might have better on a bike at double the money. But don’t count on it. There is always a learning curve. What I spent an hour and a half on would now take me 30 min
