Maintenance Ir&tructions These instructions are to help you with the small amount of maintenance required to keep your Alex Moulton bicycle in perfect running order. Read them carefully. A few general hints are also included for your guidance. Riding Position The correct saddle height is very important. When positioned correctly the toes of both feet should just touch the ground. To find the right saddle height, ride with your heels on the pedals - the legs should be nearly straight. Adjust the saddle pillar by using the allen key provided and then mark the correct position. The saddle top should preferably be horizontal. ‘Fore and aft’ positioning can also be adjusted by loosening the saddle clamp bolt and moving the saddle in the clamp. The handlebar extension can be adjusted to suit the riding position. Riding To get on and off an Alex Moulton bicycle always step through the frame. This is much safer than any other method. When riding your Alex Moulton bicycle use the lowest gear which you can comfortably pedal. Never push hard into a head wind or up a gradient when there is a lower gear available. In this way cycling is easier and more comfortable. All rim brakes require drying off in wet conditions, so for maximum safety in the rain gently apply the brakes occasionally, particularly when going down hill. The Alex Moulton bicycle is more stable under all road conditions, but the lower fly- wheel effect of the small wheels (which is the reason for the quick acceleration) makes it more difficult to ride ‘hands off’. This ‘hands off’ riding on any machine is, of course, undesirable and unsafe. The Alex Moulton bicycle with its small wheels and low centre of gravity is ideally suited to carry luggage. Specially designed bags and baskets are available. In this way loads of vp to 30lbs at the rear of the bicycle and 15lbs at the front can be carried comfortably, but do not use ordinary shopping baskets or bags fastened to the handlebars. After two weeks riding, check all nuts, chain adjustments, etc., and pay particular attention to the adjustment of the gear - your dealer will usually do this for you. Derailleur Adjustment 1. While turning pedals move lever backwards and change to second largest sprocket. 2. Still turning pedals gently, try to shift to the largest sprocket. (a) If you are unable to shift on to this sprocket, turn adjusting screw B counter- clockwise until the chain moves to the largest sprocket. (b) If you can shift to the largest sprocket and continued movement of the shifting lever causes the chain to override, then turn screw B clockwise until the shifting lever stops with the chain in the correct position on the largest sprocket. 3. To adjust shifting of the chain to the smallest sprocket, repeat the proceedure outlined in No. 2 above using screw A. Tyres o To reduce rolling resistance and thereby make cycling easier, ensure that the tyres are inflated hard. The unique suspension system will iron out the bumps. Recommended pressures are: Front 70; rear 90lbs per sq. inch. Pressographe tyre gauge suitable for measuring these pressures can be obtained from your dealer. If you should puncture a tyre (which can be repaired in the same way as those fitted to conventional machines), take care in replacing the wheels as correct alignment is an important factor in preserving the straight line handling qualities of your bicycle. Wheel Alignment On replacing the front wheel make sure that the wheel spindle is fully home in the fork- ends. On the AM2 rear wheel check that the clearances between the rear forks and either side of rim are equal and do not tighten the rear wheel nuts until you have correctly adjusted the chain tension. Also the brake arm of the Fichtel & Sacks duomatic hub has to be secured in position. On the AM7 ensure that the rear spindle is fully located in the vertical dropouts before tightening spindle nuts. Lubrication Your Alex Moulton bicycle has been pre- lubricated therefore only when necessary lubricate sparingly the moving parts. On the rare occasions when the front suspension may require lubricating remove the handlebar extension and put only one or two drops of oil down the inside of the head tube. Maintenance of all individual conventional compenents is easily mastered and for further information we suggest you obtain one of the following publications:- The Penguin Book of the Bicycle by Roderick Watson and Martin Gray Richard's Bicycle Book by Richard Ballantine (PAN) British Patents Applied for.
