Your Boogie Bike Cruiser just arrived and now you have to set it up. Unbox it the right way by following these simple steps and you’ll be hitting the road in no time.
1. Examine the box for any obvious signs of shipping damage. If there seems to be no signs of damage, go ahead and grab a pair of scissors or cutters and open the box. Start by cutting along the seams. Once open, you can now remove the bike from the box.
2. Enlist a friend to help you. The ebike is quite heavy and a helpful hand should make things easier. Pull the bike straight up and out. Set it on the kickstand and get the box out of the way. If you do decide to cut the box on the side, take special care not to puncture the tires or damage the paint.
3. Check the bike over for any obvious shipping damage. Your Boogie Cruiser is packed with pool noodles to keep it secure during shipping. Give it a quick look to make sure your new ebike is undamaged.
4. Install the handlebars. Use your scissors to cut the cable ties that hold the handlebars on. Once they are free, pick them up carefully and remove the cap from the bottom part of the handlebars and the puck from the handlebar hole. Secure the pieces together and you should be able to easily slide the handlebars onto the bike frame. Make sure the wheels are straight and the handlebars are aligned with the wheel. Use the provided 6mm wrench that comes with the bike to tighten the “wedge” and secure the handle bars. The next step is to lift the handlebars up to where you want them. Use the 5mm hex wrench and tighten the front bolt (loosened for shipping). There should be no play in your handle bars for a safe ride.
5. Install the pedals. The pedals will be taped to the crank arm, one on each side. The important thing is you do not mix them up. One pedal has a right hand thread, while the other pedal has a left hand thread. On the right side of the bike, it will screw in as clockwise as what you’re used to with screwing in a bolt. You’re going to need either an adjustable wrench or a 15mm wrench (Available from Boogie with your bike) to install the pedals. The right pedal would need to be screwed on clockwise. Turn it until it’s tight. While the left pedal would need to be screwed the opposite way (counter-clockwise).
That’s it and you should be all set!

Autumn is a wonderful time of year for people who ride bikes! The air is crisp, leaves change color, and you can enjoy the sunshine one last time before the cold (and in Wisconsin SNOW) season. But if you ride in the rain, there's a new set of challenges that you'll need to learn to deal with. Cloudy days can make it hard to see oncoming traffic and dark clothing hides bikers from sight and makes them more difficult to see. Whatever the season, don’t let the fear of conditions getting worse deter you from venturing out. Follow these tips to keep you safe and comfortable as autumn sets in.
Goodbye summer, hello Fall! Before the season comes to an end, take advantage of your favorite outdoor activity. Boogie bikes are fun for people of all ages and skill levels. Here are some reasons why you should get one.
If you think your ebike is just for riding to work, you're dead wrong. Bikes have been a part of the art of travel for decades. From the early days of penny-farthing to today's mountain bikes, bicycles are a great way to explore a place and burn off some calories. National Parks across the country offer ample opportunities for cyclists – from dedicated mountain biking trails to road rides – there's something for everyone. So before summer ends, we've put together a list of national parks where you can take your ebike for enjoyable bike rides.
