Decksters work with Time® ATAC, Crank Brothers® Eggbeater, Shimano® SPD, Wellgo®, and Ritchey® off-road style pedals. Please read the instrucitons completely before attempting installation. Use the correct cleat (sold separately) for the brand of pedal according to each manufacturer’s specifi cations.

PLEASE USE THE DIAGRAMS ON THIS PAGE FOR REFERENCE.

WARNING: Read these instructions completely before beginning installation of this product. If you lack the knowledge or tools to perform installation, please have your local professional bicycle mechanic perform the installation. Improper installation can result in loss of control or damage to the bicycle and/or serious injury or death to the rider.

Clip-in pedal systems have an inherent release mechanism that allows a quick release of clipless shoes by twisting the shoe. Twisting your foot while it is on a Deckster may cause it to release, just as a clipless shoe would. Jumping, stunt riding, downhilling, freeriding, BMX riding, and/or aggressive riding could result in premature release of the Deckster from the pedal, potentially causing serious injury.

Bike shop employees please note, you must warn the customer of the release mechanisms inherent in this clipless pedal system if using the Deckster for test rides on bicycles.

Installation of the plastic blocks is absolutely necessary for use with Time ATAC or Crank Brothers Eggbeater pedals. Failure to install plastic blocks could cause premature release of platform from pedal and result in injury.

TOOLS:

4mm hex wrench

CLEAT ASSEMBLY FOR TIME AND CRANK BROTHERS PEDALS:

• Set cleat plate into holes on top of Deckster.

• Set cleat on bottom of Deckster.

• Lube and install both cleat bolts, torque to 4-5 Nm (35-44 in-lbf) with 3mm hex wrench

• You must install the plastic blocks with Time and Eggbeater pedals. Failure to do so could result in premature release of Deckster™ from the pedal and potentially cause serious injury. Place bolts in plastic block so that each bolt head sits fl ush into the recessed side of block. Fasten to bottom of Deckster, tightening to 3 Nm (26 in-lbf.) with 3mm hex wrench.

CLEAT ASSEMBLY FOR SPD-COMPATIBLE (SHIMANO, WELLGO OR RITCHEY) PEDALS:

• Set cleat plate into holes on top of Deckster.

• Set cleat on bottom of Deckster.

• Insert cleat bolt washer into recessed cleat area.

• Lube and install both cleat bolts, torque to 4-5 Nm (35-44 in-lbf) with 3mm hex wrench.

TO INSTALL DECKSTER ON ALL PEDALS:

• With pedal properly installed on the bike, place Deckster onto the pedal with proper forward cleat direction.

• Gently step down onto Deckster until the cleat clips into place.

• Once securely in place, we recommend tightening the cleat release mechanism to its tightest setting on SPD-type pedals.

TO REMOVE DECKSTER FROM ALL PEDALS:

• While pedal is still installed on the bike, loosen cleat release mechanism to its loosest setting on SPD-type pedals.

• Wrap a shop rag around platform to protect your hands. Then twist the platform to release.

• Reset cleat release mechanism to desired tension on SPD-type pedals.
