INSTALLATION

Here are our printable installation guidelines for the FOODCELL.

1st MAKE SURE YOU FIT THE BLACK FOAM PAD TO BOTTOM OF THE FOODCELL BEFORE INSTALLATION FOR BOTH THE BOLT OR VELCRO ATTACHMENTS. THIS PROTECTS THE FRAME BUT IMPORTANTLY STOPS THE FOODCELL SLIDING ON THE FRAME WHEN USING STRAPS. 

As you will see on the left side of the image below and the downloadable PDF there are instructions if your attaching to you bike from via the Velcro straps. On the right side of the PDF are instructions if your using a the bolt attachments.

PLEASE ENSURE YOU TIGHTEN THE STRAPS HARD TO STOP SLIPPING AND ALWAYS TEST PRE-EVENT TO MAKE SURE THE UNIT IS SECURE. ONCE FULLY TIGHTENED AND THE FOODCELL DOES NOT MOVE THEN YOU CAN CUT THE STRAPS SO YOU ALWAYS WILL HAVE THE DESIRED TIGHTNESS TO THE FRAME. IF YOU HAVE A VERY TAPERED TOP TUBE THEN USE THE ADDITIONAL (LONGER) STRAPS PROVIDED WITH OUR WELCOME LETTER AS THIS WILL ALLOW MORE FORCE TO BE APPLIED DURING FITTING OF THE STRAPS.

Failure to correctly attach the unit and the unit becoming loose requires the rider to stop and fix the unit correctly before continuing the ride. 

 

BOLT ATTACHMENT


Tools required: 3mm Allen wrench
1. Place the FoodCell base unit on the top tube and thread the included M5 bolts in.
2. Slide the FoodCell base unit forward to where the cables enter the frame. If the cables do not enter the top tube then slide up to the stem ensuring the fit noes not hamper the turning of the handlebars.
3. Tighten bolts to 1 - 2Nm (9 - 18in-lbs)[we advise trying 1Nm take a test ride and if required increasing in 0.5Nm increments until max of 2Nm).

Under tightening of the bolts can result in a part coming loose while riding and an over tightened bolt can break unexpectedly or strip the threads. This may result in a loss of control if you become distracted and thus stop and reattach the unit correctly. All bolts must be tightened to FlowCell Limited (or the bike manufacturer’s) torque specifications. Failure to do so would prevent the replacement of a unit.
