Welcome to the Liberty Trike Unboxing and Assembly video. We're going to show you how easy it is to take your Liberty Trike out of the box once it's delivered and put it together yourself.
For this you are going to need zero tools. In fact the hardest thing about it, will probably be taking, all the packaging off, you'll see once we open this box. So without further adieu, let's get right into it.
[ Music – No Dialogue ]
Okay, like I said, the hardest thing about unboxing and assembling the Liberty Trike is taking all that packaging off all the parts. Now that we have all the parts laid out, I'm going to show you how to put this together.
So, the largest part is obviously the rear of the trike. Now you have this stand and this stand is going to help you with this I want you to pick up the rear of the trike and place this stand right under here, in the front of the frame there, before the hinge, okay. And that's going to give you a nice three point stance, on the rear of your frame, keeping it in place. Now you have a clevis pin in here,
you are going to pull that out of the rear of the frame, we are going to set that aside for a second. We are going ahead to grab the front half of your Liberty Trike frame, put that up here. We are going to get this out of the way, okay.
And what we are going to do is, lining up here, on the front half with there rear half, okay. And once I have that lined up, I'm going to be able to take that clevis pin and put that right in the top. When you get that side of the hinge lined up, you get that in half way. Now at this point, you can remove the stand and put it over here.
Now you want to keep this out of the way, for the folding, but this clevis pin has to go through the bottom hole as well. I want to put my hand underneath, I'm going to push and I'm going to push down on the pin where you are going to get the pin all the way in, you should be able to see that on the bottom as well.
Now, you want to lock this hinge in place, at this place it's folding you want to take, this quick-release, work that up and down and get that in like that and then lock it into place like that. The next part is, you want to make sure that the wheel is straight. Now your wheel is straight if your fender is pointing to the back here like this, so make sure your wheel is on straight.
You want to take your handlebar, pick that up and we're going to insert right here in the front. You want to make sure your brake cable and mechanical cable is bowed out and nothing is impeding that and then you have your electrical cable, I'll show you what to do with but just get your handlebar in there and then go ahead there's a quick-release here, you can go ahead and close that.
We'll do the final adjustments on the wheel in a second. So now you have that done, we're going to make our connection on electrical. So you have an electrical connection here and
this is for your components in the front, which would be your brake, your throttle and your LCD. Okay, you want to take a look down there, make sure none of the pins are bent. You want to line up your arrows and you want to push this together, very snug. Make sure there's no daylight.
Now you are done with the front of the trike. Now the next thing is going to be your seat, so you can go ahead and pick up your seat. We are going
to take that, we're going to place that into the seatpost into the stem and then we are going to lock that up and we can do final adjustments later.
The next part is, you are going to take your basket. Your basket goes on in the back here and you have a couple of wing nuts and washers, you want to remove those, counterclockwise. Once you remove those, you can put your basket lay that on top and find those threaded holes underneath, line them up. Now you are going to take, a wing nut and a washer, you are going to put that on your wing nut and carefully find the threading and turn that clockwise to tighten it up. You'll do that with both, hand tight, you don't need to over do it and that should secure your basket.
You can go on and do final adjustments meaning your seat height and your handlebar height and make sure your handlebar is aligned with your front tire. So you can go do that with these quick-release. That's pretty much it.
In a separate video, we will show you
how to turn your trike on and some of the initial operations.
One more thing here we want to do is, once you have your trike together, we want to come down to the bottom we want to connect your power, okay. So we have one connection down here. This is a thread connection. So you want to look at it, line up arrows, make sure you are putting it in the right way, there's only one way to do it and then turn that little thread, the aluminum threads, lock that into place, that goes underneath your trike frame.
You have a cable in the back here and that's going to plug into your battery face. Push that in snug. Now your Liberty Trike is together, it's ready to go.
The next part, we'll show you how to turn this on, how put the key in and get riding.
[ Liberty Trike Intro ]
Hi, this is a Liberty Trike. It's a great way to get around, enjoy the outdoors, it's easy, and it's fun, and I'm going to show you how to get going on your very first ride.
So before your first ride, you want to check a few things. You want to make sure your brakes are working, obviously, go ahead and test those out. You want to make sure your are seated properly, all your adjustments are done, and that your tires are inflated to around 35 PSIs; also, don't forget to bring your helmet.
One of the first things that you want to do is make sure that your key is in the ON position, that it's parallel to the ground. Okay, now that you have done your safety checks and your ready to ride, the position on the bike you got it fit for you.
The seat is where it needs to be; you got your helmet on, we checked our brakes and our tires, you are ready to get going here. The first thing you are going to do is power ON the trike. To power on your trike, you are going to the "i" button on the left-hand side of the handlebar, and you are going to hold that "i" button down for a couple of seconds. Doing that is going to power on the LCD screen in front of you. And what you are going to see first is the twenty-five flashing. That twenty-five is an indicator, it's telling you that your brake may be on. If that's the case, grab your brake lever of the left-hand side and you are going to release that brake lever, and
that will go away.
Before you ride, it's very important that you know how to stop. So stopping your Liberty Trike, you going to do that in two ways. You have a front brake,
which is here on the left side. You are going to grab that with your left hand and pull on the lever towards you. That's going to actuate your front disc brake. Now the other brake you have is in the rear. So if you go to pedal
backward, that's going to stop that. That's like an old-school coaster brake, right we're all familiar with that. Now one key tip in this area is when you go
to stop, I don't want you to put your feet down. I need you to trust the brakes on the trike, go slow, trust the brakes, DO NOT put your feet down. If you put
your feet down, let's show them what's going to happen. Put your feet down and your rolling, and you can run over your calves that way. So insider tip, don't put your feet down when you are stopping. Make sure you use the brakes; good idea to use both the rear coaster brake by pushing backward and your left front hand there; using them in tandem is a great thing to do.
The next part of what you are going to do here is your going to want to put this in what's called Level One. Now level one is easy to get into; it's going to be on your screen; you can see right here we have zero. one, two, three, four, five. That indicator is your Level Assist; it's really a percentage of your top speed. Think about it like this, twenty, forty, sixty, eighty percentage of one hundred. So we got zero, which is nothing. We got one, two, three, four, five, twenty, forty, sixty, eighty, one-hundred percent, the top speed.
Now that we are ready to go, we are going to get ourselves into level one. So you are going to look at the top right-hand corner of this LCD that you are looking at right now, and with the plus and minus, you are going to take that up or down; you want to land on one. Once you get there, the lowest kind of starting speed assist, you are going to have on the Liberty Trike.
Now you are in level one; you want to make sure your left hand, front disc brake is off; your feet are up, and now you are ready to go. The way you are going to go is by turning the throttle here, which is controlled by your right
hand. You are going to turn that throttle with your two front fingers and your thumb like a motorcycle. REV...REV...
You are going to turn it in towards you by bending your wrist. That's a variable throttle; the more you twist, the more power that you are going to
have and the faster that you are going to go. A lot of our riders, from a dead stop they, want to use that throttle to get going, and then they can start to pedal as well.
It's always a good idea to pedal on your first ride; pedaling will actually help you balance your Liberty Trike. So you are going to do that, grab your throttle, to get you going as well. Again we are in level one for safety, and that's where you are going to do this until you get more familiar with your riding your trike.
There's one more aspect of this that we need to let you know before you go on your first ride. On that throttle, on the right-hand side, you do have a little red button there, as part as that throttle. It is popped out; you can
see it's protruding from the throttle, and that means you are in forward.
So when you twist that throttle, the Liberty Trike's motor is going to go in a forward motion. Now if you hit that button and press it in, it will stay collapsed and that is reverse. The reverse function on the Liberty Trike is 3 mph, speed limited. So if you ever want to go in reverse, come to a complete stop, push that button in so you are in the reverse mode, and twist that throttle
in the same way, pulling towards you, and that will give you reverse mode. Now one safety feature here is if you hit that (red button) while riding, the trike
will unresponsive until you come to a complete stop, and then it will find its way, depending on the button, forward or reverse. So you want to be aware of that as well.
So now you know how to control your trike, you know how to get going on your first, off-the-line start here, with the throttle and the pedal combination or whatever is comfortable for you.
Why don't we try that? Remember to push back here for your brake for your rear, and up here is your front coaster; stay in level one for safety, take turns very slow, very important, and don't put your feet down.
Ready? Ready! Alright, let's see you go!

[Jason Kraft, CEO of Electric Bike Technologies, Inc.] Electric Bike Technologies started in 2008. We started off as a conversion kit company and our first brand was the E-BikeKit.
The Liberty Trike behind me, especially is something that's really taken off in the past few years. This was developed as an alternative to a mobility scooter, and we have a lot of senior riders. They have really embraced the idea of the Liberty Trike they love it.
[Donna F., Liberty Trike Owner] I've always been a cyclist and a motorcyclist, and I just had so much fun the first couple of times. I was out on the trike it was amazing. It was so, stable, and so easy to ride. My husband and I ride together, and we have several routes to take, to just enjoy the day.
The Liberty Trike has a couple of key features, that other electric trikes don't have and that's what makes it unique. One of them and the most important is, that it folds, and not only does it fold, but it separates completely into two pieces this makes it easy to transport. The Liberty Trike will fit in most vehicles.
The Liberty Trike has a 36-volt 10 Amp battery. This battery will take the average person of 150 to 200 pounds up to 24 miles and the range of the Liberty Trike will pull a 300 pound rider up a wheelchair ramp with no pedaling. We feel like, we're part of something really special, to be able to give seniors this ability, to be more active, and to be more mobile, and enjoy the outdoors more and enjoy cycling more.

Hi, my name is Jason Kraft. I'm the CEO of Electric Bike Technologies in Pennsylvania and I want to give you some quick tips on safety around your lithium-ion batteries, whether for e-bikes or anything else, these safety tips apply.
We're going to run down a quick list. There's a PDF we're going to provide, probably share a link to that wherever we share this video, you'll be able to take that with you and study that.
Okay safety guidelines for lithium-ion batteries number one. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions, seems pretty simple but read that book no matter what you get, whether it's from Electric Bike Technologies or not. Make sure you're following that manual and all of those safety instructions around proper use, care, charging, and storage of your lithium-ion batteries.
Always plug into lithium-ion battery directly to a wall outlet. This one gets overlooked a lot. No stacking, no putting these into a strip, give it its own outlet, okay. That's the safe way to do it.
Don't use extension cords, don't use power strips. Always charge at room temperature. Lithium-ion batteries like to live the way you like to live, so those temperature are good if you're cold it's cold. Don't charge it if you're hot; it's hot. Don't charge it you want these basically at room temperature. You don't want to charge, a nice cold frozen battery and you don't want to charge a battery that's boiling already.
Always charge your battery in a well-ventilated area with a fire detection system. Okay, this is a battery safety thing. You want to make sure you're charging this somewhere where if gas does escape or something like that, that it's not going to cause a bigger problem.
Always monitor the battery when you're charging. This is kind of interesting for e-bikes because a lot of manufacturers, do recommend a balancing charge
once in a while. If you have a battery with multiple cells but for the most part you want to be attentive.
You don't want to leave a battery charging unattended. You don't want to do it overnight while you're sleeping. Those are dangerous situations, you want to make sure that you're able to act if there is a problem.
Occasionally for those balancing recommendations you want to do an extended charge, that's fine but you want to pay attention, do not leave your lithium battery unattended while charging.
Do not stack or cluster lithium-ion batteries. So if you have a bunch of stuff, whether it's an e-bike battery or whether it's a smaller lithium-ion battery, you don't want to stack these things together. You create excessive
heat the more you put them together, so don't do that. Let them have fresh air flow.
Do not use the battery or charger if it has been damaged. Okay, if it's been wet, if it's been punctured if it's been dropped. If you dumped your bike, do
not do that. If something has been physically damaged, you want to stop, assess the situation. Get some professional help if you need it.
Don't charge that battery, if it's been dented or something like that. Never block your exit from the home while charging your lithium-ion battery. Again
fire safety stuff, they want to make sure you can get out of the room if something goes wrong. So make sure you have an exit plan.
You never try to modify or service your e-bike or trike battery system. You don't want to do that you're not a professional. You didn't design these. Don't get in there messing around. That is one sure way to cause a problem. Get professional help, if you need to service your batteries. Don't try to do that yourself.
Never use a battery if it shows signs of physical damage. Again it's just so important that if you drop your battery or if you crack your charger or anything like that, you do not want to use those products. So, when you get
them tested out, make sure they're good before you use them, or you want to replace them.
Never place lithium-ion batteries in the trash, recycling bin. This is very important this environmental aspect of all this. We're putting a lot of batteries out there, these large lithium-ion batteries you don't want to just
throw these in the trash. You need to contact your local Waste Management Service company, or you can look online there are companies that specialize in the disposal of lithium-ion batteries.
We want to do that right. We have a great industry. It's a fun industry, electric bikes. We don't want to mess this up, we don't want to mess our planet up, we don't want to mess ourselves up. So do the right thing and dispose of your batteries properly.
I hope these tips are helpful, hope you find it useful. Again this is a general outline for battery safety when it comes to lithium-ion batteries, we all need to take care.
I hope this helps you have a good day.
How well the Liberty Trike does on the hill greatly depends on the hill grade, your weight, input, and momentum. The maximum torque of the Liberty Trike is 60Nm.
If the Liberty Trike is presented with an immovable situation, the motor system will cut power to the motor temporarily to prevent damage to the system. Releasing the throttle for a second will allow the system to re-engage and be ready again.
The Liberty Trike is very powerful, but steep hills and inclines will require riders (especially over 225 lbs) to assist the motor with pedal power. The Liberty Trike is not a solution for climbing steep hills without any effort by the rider.
