No tools are supplied with the WeeHoo so you will need to gather together the following;

Attach the pedals 

  • Using the adjustable spanner attach the pedals checking that they are on the correct side.  The elastic toe holder should be to the front of the pedals.  When looking at the pedals from where the seat will be positioned – the right pedal should screw to the left.  Your left pedal should screw to the right.

Remove your seat post

If you have a quick release on your seat post, undo this and remove your seat post from your seat post tube.  Otherwise you will need an Allen key to release your seat post bolt to remove your seat.

Choose the seat post protector & attach

The WeeHoo comes with 6 different sizes of seat post protector.  If you know the diameter of your seat post choose the matching protector.  You can find this information on some seat posts otherwise it will be trail and error to see which one fits snugly.

  • Slide your protector into the silver seat post attachment
  • with the black lip of the protector at the bottom slide both pieces onto your seat post
  • insert the seat post back into the seat post tube until your seat is at the correct height – retighten the bolt/quick release
  • position the attachment directly above the end of the seat post tube
