Everyone in the bike industry has heard of the
brand Shimano. They manufacture several electric bike motor systems, and today we're gonna go
over the controls of the EP8 drive system. The Mondraker that we have here with the EP8
motor is equipped with an SC-e7000 display. This display is chock full of features, so let's
dive in. When you initially turn on the system, you're going to have four features that show up on
your display. The first thing is going to be your battery life. Each bar will represent 20% battery.
The next below that is going to be what level you're on. When it initially turns on, it'll show
"off." The top right hand corner tells you about your drivetrain. Most drivetrains are manual, so
you'll see an M indicated on that top right hand corner. If you're equipped with an automatic
drivetrain then you'll see an A, and if you're equipped with an electronic drivetrain, you'll
see a number indicating what gear you're in. On the bottom right hand corner, that is going
to indicate the function that you choose–whether it's your speedometer, odometer, your range,
or even a clock.
To change those options you have a function button on the display, and
every single click will change that function. One of the most important features
of the electronic bike system is choosing what power level you're on.
You'll have a thumb pad on the left side of your handlebar that you can choose to increase or
decrease your power levels. This simple button pad is one of the most iconic features of the Shimano
system. It's small, simple, and easy to use. Using the button pad you can toggle out of
the "off" feature and into the eco, trail, and boost options. So let's say you've been out
riding and you want to reset your trip distance. You can do that within the function menu of
the display. To get into that function menu, press and hold the function button for at least
two seconds. Once you're in there the first option is going to say "clear." To enter that menu press
the function button. Once you're in that menu, you're going to have two options: exit to go
back into the original function menu, or you'll need to scroll down into clearing the distance.
To scroll within the menus you'll need to use your left button pad.
Hit down on your button pad
and highlight the distance. To clear the distance press your function button on the display. Once
you're in that final menu, use your button pad to select "ok" and then hit the function button
to clear your distance. That'll take you back to the clear menu. To exit that clear menu scroll
up to exit and enter your original function menu. The next option you have in your function menu
is clock. Use your button pad and scroll down to it to highlight the clock, and then hit the
To enter your clock settings you can change the clock by toggling up or down
on your button pad. To move from hours to minutes click the function button. When you're done
setting your clock, hit that function button one more time to set your clock. If your bike is
equipped with a light, this next menu will allow you to adjust light settings. The next option
within the function menu is your beep. So I know when i'm out on the trails, I don't want to hear
a beeping every single time I change an option, so I toggle that off. You can do so on this
part of the menu. Highlight beep and select the function button. From here you can toggle between
on or off. I like it off, so I'll highlight off first and then hit the function button. The next
setting within the menu is the unit settings. Highlight unit, and hit the function button. From
here you can toggle between kilometers and miles to set that setting. Hit the function one
more time. After the unit settings, you have language settings.
Highlight language, and
hit that function button. Choose your language, and hit that function button. The next option
is the font color. So you could actually change your color of font that you're looking at, whether
it's white on a black background or black on a white background. The next feature of the display
shows adjust, and this is specifically to those automatic drivetrains. Within this function,
you'll be able to fine tune those shift adjustments within the display. The next line item
is shift timing. You only need to worry about this if you have an automatic drivetrain. In this menu
you'll be able to adjust just how much torque or how heavy your pedal stroke is before
the system automatically shifts. The next menu option is assist customize. To get the most
value out of this feature you would need to set up your bicycle within the E2 project app. If you
need assistance connecting to an E2 project app, click on the video above.
Once you've set up two
customized profiles within the E2 project app, you can choose them directly on your bike.
Through this menu option if you're equipped with an electronic drivetrain like a DI2
rear derailleur this next feature is for you. This is the rear derailleur protection reset
option. Your DI2 rear derailleur has a protection feature. So let's say you're out riding and you
hit your rear derailleur. It's going to move in just a little bit so that it doesn't cause
major damage to your derailleur or your bike. But after the incident, you'll need to reset your
rear derailleur, and that's what this feature is for.
Select the rear derailleur protection reset
option with that function button on the display. The next option is your display speed. So let's
say you want to match the speed that's on your Garmin or other GPS device. Within this option you
can adjust the speed plus or minus five percent so you can match that speed that's on your GPS
device. Once you're all done, within the main function menu scroll down to exit. Highlight it,
and hit that function button. And now you're back to your front screen. And that's how you
use your SC-e7000 display on your EP8 motor. If you found this Shimano video useful, hit
