For adjusting the gear hub of your Halfbike 3 you can check this tutorial: Move the shifter to gear number 2. Check if the two yellow lines are aligned well. * Rotate the shifter cable adjuster to align them. Select gear 4 and then change back to gear 2. Rotate the pedal cranks a full turn and then check again to ensure that the two indicator marks are still aligned. Repeat the above steps until the yellow indicators are aligned. * Please note that the two lines are not 100% accurate on all hubs. Some do shift better when the lines are slightly out of position and it takes a bit of experimenting to find the optimal position.

Hi guys, tried several times the tutorial but althought the yellow lines are aligned, switching from second gear to third or fourth, I keep hearing a cranky noise. is there any other check/adjustment I should try? Many thanks

Hi guys, I’ve tried to adjust the gear hub at least 50 times following the instructions on this tutorials. I tried multiple settings, leaving the lines slightly out of position or perfectly aligned, but the result is always the same: the only gear that works is second. When shifting to third, it momentarily engages, only to go back to second and make a cranky noise. Same thing happens when shifting to fourth. I have used this half bike for about two months and only sporadically, so it has no more than 40 miles of use. It’s really frustrating to realize that I might have just wasted the $750 I spent on it because it appears the gear hub has a design flaw. Is there anything else I can do to get the gear hub to work properly? Regards, Armando

I'm having the same exact issue. I just got my half-bike today and put it together. Without even riding it I hear this annoying noise. At first I couldn't understand what it could be. Then, after looking over this "thing" I dis-engaged the gear cable and it didn't make anymore noise. However, once I engage the gear cable back to the main wheel the damn stupid noise came back. Do I have a defective gear hub right out of the box??????? This sucks!

Hi Wes, Just replied to your email. You've placed your gear cable on the wrong side, that's all :)

I aligned the 2 yellow lines well. But, when I ride my bike, I found that it performs best at gear 3. When I switch to gear 2, I found that it is "loose". Feel like the chain is "not connected" to the wheel intermittently. Or feel like it misses gear occasionally... hard to describe the problem. While, at gear 3, it it well connected and feel well. Any thought or recommendation?

Another question: do you have a video/ procedure on how to replace the grip?

Hi Halfbike Team, I have similar issue as mentioned by fellow halfbikers. 2nd gear is smooth and quiet. But the other gears are having this cranking sound during pedalling. Is there a way to align all the gears as smooth and quiet as 2nd gear? Please advise, thanks.

Hi Halfbike Team, Is there a way to widen the gap between the gear screw and the chain as shown at the red arrow drawn? I realise the gap is too close and may have caused some contact between the screw and the chain during half biking and paddling too. Don't you agree? Regards, KH

This tutorial is lacking. Is it the left yellow notch that should be the one that moves when turning the shifter cable adjuster? Is that right? If that is right, which direction of turning makes the yellow line go up, and which makes it go down?

Добрый день. У меня стала пропадать 3-я и 4-я передача. Я настраиваю передачи, но со временем 3-я и 4-я передача снова пропадают.
