The manufacturer of the Bicycle frame is not always going to be the manufacturer of the Electric Bike Components on it.

Try to troubleshoot your electric motor system first. The batteries will need to be replaced if they have sat unused for more than 2 months. Once your batteries are good, your bike should run after a charge.

If your electric motor still doesn't work, you should start trouble shooting the unit, by checking for popped fuses, burnt wires, or loose wires, and check the throttle, controller, and wiring with a volt meter to ensure proper voltage.

This should help you with the electric motor part of your bike.

If you need assistance with the frame or chassis, you can take that to a bicycle store for repair if you don't know how. :)

Wanting to get information for my giant trinity bike- I have misplaced what I had

If you mean the owner's manual, they are pretty generic, but here's a link to the Giant page for manuals: Owners Manuals Giant Bicycles United States Nothing specific to the Trinity, which is a very high end bike (over $2k) I would hope that the owner of such a bike would not need the owner's manual! If you need further info contact the dealer you bought it from the nearest authorized Giant dealer.

Need a user manual for Giant DCR2 bike the bike was given to me but I do not know how to change gears

Why don't you just use a search engine for either request. Giant has generic manuals for its bikes and the web has videos for how to shift. The answers would be faster.

Cannot send comments to your guy to get specific info I requested

The manual that comes with the bike is a general one, I sell 5000+ bikes a year and can tell you that what you are asking for is not available. Giant, Trek, Cannondale, and the highter price bikes are only sold through bike shops, assembled professionally. You cannot buy them in a box, so your bike is already adjusted for you. You can go to any bike shop and they will verify what I am telling you. Now, what is the problem that you need the manual to answer?

A bicycle shop which sells Giant can usually give you a manual. Bike manuals tend to be very generic as to what information is in them. If you have a specific problem, with the shifting or brakes for example. Post it.

Giant lafree electric bike

I have been riding my Lafree for over 10 years with no such problem. The only thing that comes to mind that would cause such a problem is a loose electrical connection or short, probably at the motor since the battery has a locked connection, and if it were in the control circuit the warning diagnostics would detect it and beep a warning, and probably shut down.
