man assembling adult electric tricycle

Congratulations; you’ve purchased a Viribus electric tricycle! Before you can ride off into the sunset on your Viribus Trio adult tricycle, however, you must perform the somewhat daunting task of assembling it. If you’re letting your three-wheeled parcel gather dust in the garage because you’re intimidated by all the cogs and wheels involved, we’re here to help! 

We’ll guide you through the basics of assembling your Viribus Trio tricycle for adults. Your adult electric tricycle comes delivered in a tight parcel containing the main frame, rear frame, three wheels, bike seat, cargo basket, fenders, charger, pedals, and other miscellaneous pieces. Once you have confirmed that you have all the necessary parts in working order, you’re ready to build your ride! 

Assembling Your Viribus Trio Electric Tricycle 

Install the Rear Wheels 

Before you start, ensure you assemble your rear wheels on a flat, wide-spread area. You’re going to need space and a level surface to build your frame.

  • For easy assembly, start by inflating the tires using an air pump. Ensure not to over- or under-inflate. 
  • Distinguish the rear wheels (D-axle) from the front wheel (O-axle).

  • Take the nut and washer off the right side of the rear axle. Slide a D-shaped tire on with the slotted side of the wheel axle fitting into the frame. Put the nut and washer back on and tighten with a wrench to secure the wheel.
  • On the other side of the rear axle, remove the protective cap, nut, and washer and slide on the other D-shaped tire. Put the nut and washer back on and tighten. 

Attach the Rear and Main Frame 

  • Loosen the two nuts and washers on each side of the rear frame. Loosen the nuts and washers on the main frame as well.

  • Turn the main frame upside down to prevent the trike from sliding, and align the main frame slots with the outside nuts of the rear frame. Slide the two frames together with the rear frame inside and the main frame outside.

  • Partially tighten the nuts and bolts using a wrench; you will be fully tightening them after installing the chain. 

Install the Handlebars 

  • Remove the protective cover from the handlebar stem.
  • Loosen the bolt at the head of the stem using a hex wrench.

  • Slide the handlebar stem into the headtube of the frame, then retighten the bolt.
  • Once this tube is secured, unfold the handlebars and raise them to your desired positioning. Tighten the front bolt to keep the handlebars in place.

  • Connect the blue throttle and red brake cables to their corresponding colored cables. For best results, use zip ties to bind the cables.

    Install the Front Wheel 

    • Loosen the nuts on both sides of the front wheel. 
    • Locate the V-brakes. Disconnect the V-brakes by pressing them in and lifting the wire out.

    • Unscrew the nuts on the protective bar and remove the bar from the main frame’s front fork. 
    • Fit the wheel into the front forks. Ensure the motor cable is on the right side (left side if you’re facing the bike).  
    • Tighten the nut on the left (non-cable side) and repeat with the right side. Cover the nut and cable with the protective cap attached to the cable.

    • Loop the chain around the front sprockets, cranking the pedals to ensure the chain moves freely. At this point, it should be a bit loose. 
    • Push the main frame forward and tighten the nuts and bolts on the frame connection until the chain is taut.

    Install the Guard Supports

    • Place the chain guard over the supports and chain, then replace and tighten the bolts.

    • Crank the chain to make sure it does not rub against the guard. If it does, readjust the guard so that there is no abrasion. 

    Install the Seat and Pedals 

    • Loosen the locking bolt on the seat stem by turning the handle counterclockwise. 
    • Insert the seat stem into the saddle post until it reaches your preferred height. Then, turn the locking bolt clockwise to tighten it.

    • Remove the nuts from the rear reflectors and attach them to the rear fenders. Retighten the bolts with pliers. Repeat for the other rear reflector.
    • Locate the rear fender support and remove the bolts.
