In this video, you can see how easy is to remove the battery on the Nyx to charge the battery inside or replace it with a spare battery on long journeys.

The good thing about this battery is that, since it has a separate carbon fiber cover, unlike the Homie and Prime, you can ride the bike without the battery and still cover the inner frame to protect the wires and connectors inside from dirt and rocks.

We don't have this feature on our bikes as of yet. The reason is that the Shimano brake levers don't have the required sensors.

Where can I ride my new eBike?
California adopted new laws for legal eBikes in 2015, breaking the bikes down into three classes. The classifications are primarily based on where they are allowed to operate.

AB 1096: Electric Bicycles
This is the law that defines electric bicycles as those with fully operable pedals and an electric motor of less than 750 watts. It also creates three classes of electric bicycles based on their motor speed and level of electric assist. Electric bikes subsequently fell into classes 1, 2, and 3.

Important note! CA State AB1096 established a default framework – where a local jurisdiction (city, county, etc.) had not put any form of ordinance in place for electric bikes. A local jurisdiction (city, county, etc.) may enact an ordinance to allow or restrict electric bike usage for their area that may differ from the State default.

Class 1 eBike
A Class 1 eBike, or low-speed pedal-assisted electric bicycles, is equipped with a motor that provides assistance only when the rider is pedaling and that stops providing assistance when the bicycle reaches 20 mph. These e-bikes are legal on any paved surface that a regular bike is allowed to operate.

Class 2 eBike
Class 2 eBikes, or low-speed throttle-assisted electric bicycle, are equipped with motors that can exclusively propel the bicycle, but that cannot provide assistance when the bike reaches 20 mph. These e-bikes are legal on any paved surface that a regular bike is allowed to operate.

Class 3 eBike
A Class 3 eBike, or speed pedal-assisted electric bicycle, is equipped with a motor that provides assistance only when the rider is pedaling and stops providing assistance when the bicycle reaches 28 mph. Operators of Class 3 e-bikes must be 16 or older and wear a helmet. Class 3 e-bikes are prohibited from Class I multi-use bike paths unless specifically authorized by a local ordinance.

Since it's almost impossible to ride a bike during autumn and especially winter in many regions, it's essential to keep your bike and battery in proper condition to avoid any damage. Please check the following FAQ: 1. How and where should I store my Nireeka bike? The first thing you need to do is to clean your bike and remove any dirt, water, and dust, especially from the metallic parts. You need to keep your Nireeka bike inside your building and it should not be under rain or snow. 2. How should I store my batteries? You need to remove your battery from the bike. A small current can flow in the switched-off bike, which leads to a complete discharge which, after a longer period of time, can damage the battery and at the very worst destroy it. Lithium-ion batteries (Li-ion) should not be stored over a longer period of time either uncharged or fully charged. The optimum storage as determined by extensive experiments is with 40% to 50% capacity and at low (not freezing) temperatures, which should not drop below 0°C. Storage at 5°C to 20°C is optimal. As a result of self-discharge, a recharge is necessary every month.

Max Shojaie published Payment Plans
Hello everybody

Good news! We just added the financing option to our website. Our primary vision was to deliver the most affordable carbon fiber ebikes in the world and we're still doing this. However, it's still expensive for most people especially during pandemics so we decided to add the payment plan to our website. Of course, we could use the lower quality parts on our bikes to make them more accessible but instead of sacrificing the quality, this payment plan option will let more people join our community.

Our payment plan app is Partial.ly which is the most flexible financing option ever. It's not only flexible but also very easy to use and its integration with our website was super cool and smooth.

Here is the list of Partial.ly advantages:
- No credit check
- Spread the cost
- 0% interest
- Flexible Plan choose by customer
- Automatic Schedule payments
- Use your existing credit or debit card

Our second option is the Paybright by Affirm which is the most famous option available and many of you already have an account on their website.

See you soon!

Many customers ask if they can install a dropper seatpost on the Prime while they're actually referring to a suspension seatpost. These two parts are not the same, but they're two different concepts in two different worlds! I tried to explain it in a few lines as simply as possible.

Dropper:
A Dropper seatpost allows you to adjust the saddle height without requiring you to get off your bike or even stop moving by pushing a lever on the handlebar, exactly like your gear shifter.
Simply stated, when riding in a seated position, push the lever and your body weight will drop the post all the way down. While standing, push the lever again and the dropper post will pop back up into a pre-set riding position.

Our recommendation: Rockshox Reverb Stealth (https://www.sram.com/en/rockshox/models/sp-rvb-s-c1)

Suspension Seatpost:
This seatpost is like a suspension on a bike. It will be used for absorbing the road bumps. As simple as that!

Our recommendation: Kinekt (https://cirruscycles.com/pages/store)

Max Shojaie published Stolen Bikes!
Hello everyone,

If you're considering buying a used Nireeka product, please make sure you check the frame number with the Nireeka agents before placing the order.

While we're monitoring online shops like eBay for such cases to find the stolen bikes, we're still missing a few. Based on our latest information, 5 bikes have been stolen in Europe, 2 already sold through eBay in Germany, and 6 bikes in the United States.

Below you can find the model/color/frame numbers of the stolen bikes:

Nireeka Prime Orange Frame number #0046

Nireeka Homie Orange Frame number #1814
Nireeka Homie Orange Frame number #0527
Nireeka Homie White Frame number #1018
Nireeka Homie Matte Black Frame number #0375
Nireeka Homie Matte Black Frame number #0535
Nireeka Homie Matte Black Frame number #0104
Nireeka Homie 3K Frame number #0112
Nireeka Homie Matte Black Frame number #0387
Nireeka Homie Black Pearlized Frame number #0503
Nireeka Homie Orange Frame number #0996
Nireeka Homie Orange Frame number #0529
Nireeka Homie Matte Black Frame number #0613
Nireeka Homie Red Frame number #0358

In most cases, the thief will ask you to pay in cash so there would be no money back from eBay or your CC.

With the help of the LAPD, we found several stolen bikes in California and brought them back to the owners so please let us know if your bike is stolen so we will add it to the list. At least we'll make it harder for the thief to sell your bike to someone else!

The NSD preview
Max Shojaie replied to "NSD WIP"
Hello everybody.

It's been a few months since the latest update about the NSD. The good news is that while the NSD is in the latest stages and a demo video will be published next week, the Android/iOS app is also ready and you will be able to download it very soon.

As the above picture suggests, NSD is a part of a triangle that makes your bike smart while each part is independent and can work seamlessly without the other parts. Mainly, the NSD is responsible for gathering data from the bike and is the bridge to the bike's controller, the application is responsible for some analysis and controlling the settings, the CP (customer panel) is a comprehensive control or command center for all happening in this triangle. We also use the CP (admin side) for diagnosing the bike remotely using online and real-time statistics.

In addition, the CP will be used for sharing your riding records with the other Nireeka owners on the forum

Sorry I think the file might have been to big. I have tried again here showing a photo of the extender and its forward position so that it holds the derailleur in a better position so that the chain holds on better.

Hello all, As we received some reports regarding the derailleur alignment issue from the Prime owners, the Nireeka technical team started investigating the issue to find possible solutions. We suspect some parts causing this but we're not quite sure yet so please give us a few more days to find it out. This problem never recognized in the primary testings and that's what makes it more complicated to be found. We're in contact with some owners and we're doing some serious testing with their help. We want to ensure you that no matter what the solution is, we will send you the required replacement part for free right away. Thank you

Max Shojaie published Riding Tips #1
DISCLAIMER: All Prime owners with the throttle installed on their bikes, be aware that using the throttle and Pedal Assist System (PAS) at the same time will cause serious damage to the motor.

The reason is that when you're using the throttle, the motor releases a fixed amount of torque based on the throttle amount you're applying so if you use the PAS at the same time, there would be an internal resistance inside the motor for making the torque even and causing the damage.

The warranty of the motor will be voided if any damage occur to the motor for this reason.

P.S. This message has been emailed to all Prime owners on either shipped or delivered stages.

Arnaud, your order will be refunded as promised. You need to wait a little longer. Believe me, if we could we would do that because we don't want any headache. There are so many people who requested refund because of delay from the first campaign and we're processing all but it needs time. I know it's been more than two years but we're doing our best.

Max Shojaie replied to "XT Upgrade Mismatch"
Hello Todd,

This setup is one of the most popular ones out there so this case is not about mismatching. Moreover, most of the Homie owners already have this setup on their bikes with no issue: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=shimano+xt+sunrace+11-50

The first problem you explained is about calibration and it should be solved, as you mentioned, by adjusting the derailleur.

However, we had some reports from customers about the chain slipping. In some cases, their derailleur hangers bent during shipping and you need to fix it or replace it to solve the issue. Please ask the bike shop to investigate this first of all.

P.S. As mentioned on page 23 on the user's manual, you should not shift the gears when you’re on full throttle/PAS 3 or the gears might be damaged because this motor is the most powerful model on the market and you need to be a little nice to your gearset. This will also cause slipping.

Please let us know if you need any replacement parts to be shipped to you, of course, free of charge.

Max Shojaie published WIP#6: Shipping
It's been a month since the last update and more than half of the bikes already shipped and some of the customers already have their bikes for a week or so now.

We already finished painting all the matte black frames and all the bikes have been shipped. The remaining bikes are still in the painting stage and all the red and white frames should be done in the next two weeks, no matter what your order number is.

We had a slight delay in the supply chain due to the pandemic so it caused a delay in our assembly line. Our team is working seamlessly to avoid any further delay by sourcing the parts from different channels while maintaining the same quality.

WIP#1: Making the frames

Carbon Fiber frames
In carbon fiber frame manufacturing, as a less number of detached parts are used, it will end up with a stiffer and lighter structure. As was promised, we have designed and developed a Monocoque carbon fiber frame which is a single-part structure (Mainframe) with no adhesive material used to connect the parts, resulting in greater stiffness and lighter frame t the same time. As you maybe know this is the most advanced method in the industry.

The following video shows the four main steps for making a frame including laying up, EPS Molding, Trimming, Sanding/Finishing and we will send the frame to the painting department when we have at least 100 frames ready which will be in a month or so.
