Road Repair Kit
There are two locations that people commonly install the road repair kit. The most common place is under the top tube tucked up near the front of the bike. For this location you only have to use one strap to attach the kit. You would wrap the large strap in the center of the bag around the top tube (the words on the side of the bag will be upside-down).
The next place that people commonly place the kit is under the stem, up near the handlebars (again, the words will be upside-down). For this location you will utilize both straps of the bag. The larger, central strap goes around the stem and the other strap, on the tip of the bag, goes around the steerer tube extender.
Small Water Bottle Mount
This will clamp onto either side of your handlebars. You will need a 4mm and 5mm allen wrench. First attach the water bottle cage to the mount itself using the 4mm allen wrench.
Next, select a plastic shim protector and place the whole unit on the handlebar with the plastic shim between the clamp and handlebar. Use the 5mm allen wrench to tighten the clamp to the handlebar until the unit does not rotate when removing the water bottle from the cage.
Medium Water bottle Mount
This will clamp on your steering extender (where you adjust your steering height). You will need a 4mm and 5mm allen wrench. First attach the water bottle cage to the mount itself using the 4mm allen wrench. Next, select a plastic shim protector and place the whole unit on the steering extender with the plastic shim between the clamp and extender. Use the 5mm allen wrench to tighten the clamp to the extender until the unit does not rotate when removing the water bottle from the cage.
Planet Blinky Tail Light
We recommend mounting the tail light where the rear reflector is. Use a Philips head screwdriver to loosen the rear reflector and slide it back along the frame tubing towards the front wheel. There should be just enough room to install the taillight. Next, detach the small mounting bracket from the light mount. You will need the larger diameter mounting bracket. Use the longer screw found in the box to attach the bracket and light mount to the frame of the ElliptiGO, in front of the rear reflector. After securing the mount, slide the light into place.
Portland Design Works Danger Zone Tail Light
Attaches to existing rear reflector bracket. Remove the reflector from the bracket using a Phillips head screwdriver. Then flip the bracket on the ElliptiGO so that it is backwards. Remove the smaller screw and nut from one of the included brackets in the Danger Zone box and attach the taillight to the reflector bracket on the 'GO.

Blinky Head Light
This can be mounted on either side of the handlebars. Use one of the black rubber shims for best fit and tighten the mount using a Philips head screwdriver. Slide the light into place.
NiteRider Lumina Head Light
Attach the head light to the handlebars and tighten using the adjustment screw.
Installation of toe cages requires a 4mm allen wrench. Please refer to the model-specific online installation videos for further instructions:
This mounts on either side of the handlebars, the fork and front wheel.

Topeak Mini Morph Pump
Attaches to frame tubing over rear wheel (where it says "grab here") or along the frame tubing in the middle of the ElliptiGO between the plastic mudguard and frame. Use the included cable ties to secure the pump to the frame.
Gordo Trunk Rack with Modification Kit
Click here to see how to install the Gordo Trunk Rack.
Please note that this rack can be used on most SUVs and sedans, however, it will not work on the tailgate of a pickup truck or on a vehicle with an external spare tire mounted on the rear door.
Visit this page of the Hollywood Racks website to see if the Gordo Trunk Rack will fit on your vehicle.
The included modification kit is designed specifically for use of the ElliptiGO and enables the user to cleanly slide the ElliptiGO straight onto the rack, but it does involve removing the original cradles and bump sleeves. The next link below is to a video that shows how to modify the Gordo trunk rack to better fit the ElliptiGO. Please note, these changes are permanent modifications to the rack and once these modifications have been made, we cannot honor a return of the product.
Please make sure you are comfortable using the rack itself before making the modifications: http://youtu.be/zEvCRH_Mp3I"

To load your ElliptiGO, remove the front wheel, then place the ElliptiGO so the rear wheel is in the u-shaped wheel holder and then lock your fork to the fork mount. The fork mount secures the ElliptiGO to the rack and Velcro wheel straps secure the rear wheel in the u-shaped wheel holder.
The Custom Sport Rider Heavy Duty 2" Rack DOES NOT work with a 1.25" hitch receiver. For 1.25" hitch rack solutions, please email us at email@example.com
Before purchasing this hitch rack, we highly recommend checking with your car manufacturer to determine whether your car will accept a hitch receiver. Visit this page of the Hollywood Racks website to see if the Gordo Trunk Rack will fit on your vehicle. Also, we’ve found that the hitch rack is not compatible with some SUVs with swing-gate rear doors, SUVs with external spare tires on the rear doors, as well as some RVs and campers.
If you have any doubts about whether the hitch rack will work with your vehicle, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
