Step 4 : Undo the quick release to remove the seatpost and put to one side.

 

Step 5a : For Eclipse P7i, S11i, and P24h remove both wheels using the 15 mm crescent wrench and apply the hub axle discs to each side of both wheels.

 

Step 5b : For Eclipse P9, remove both wheels by undoing the quick releases, then unscrew the quick release acorn and slide out the quick release skewer and apply the hub axle discs to each side of both wheels.

 

Step 6 : Insert the drop out holders to the front and rear dropouts.

 

Step 7 : Place the AirPorter on the floor, open up the cover and lay the buckles on the outside, then place the rear wheel in the bottom right of the Airporter.

 

Step 8 : Place the first pad over the rear wheel.

 

Step 9 : Fold the frame. Place the folded frame on top of the first pad with the front frame underneath the rear frame and the front fork facing down on the left-hand side of the AirPorter. In this position, the brake caliper will be on the left. For the rear frame half, the rear derailleur should be at the bottom left corner, the cranks at the bottom, and OCL hinge at the right bottom corner of the AirPorter.

[!] Ensure that the fork and rear frame are in contact and padding is inserted between these parts to prevent damage to your bicycle.

 

Step 10 : Carefully slide the base of the handlepost between the seat stays so the handlebar grips are at the top of the AirPorter.

 

Step 11 : Tuck the lower third of the second pad around the base of the handlepost and ensure that the handlepost cannot touch the frame.

 

Step 12 : Fold the remainder of the second pad over the front frame half. Then place the seatpost along the top edge of the AirPorter with the saddle on the right side.

 

Step 13 : Place the front wheel on the right side of the AirPorter, clasp the buckles shut and cinch tightly.

 

Step 14 : Place the pedal bag in the zipper pocket on the inside of the AirPorter Cover.

 

Step 15 : Close the AirPorter and zipper it closed. Secure zippers in the zipper lock.
