How to Use the Sidekick Bag

The Sidekick bag is designed to fit your wheel perfectly and snugly inside. There is only one correct way to insert your Sidekick into the bag. Here is a guide on how to properly place your Sidekick into the bag without damaging either.

After folding up your Sidekick, lay your wheel on the floor with the treadle holding the flyer facing down (the “blank” treadle faces up as shown above). Orient the wheel so the bottom is towards you and the top is away from you. The bag should be laid out to the left of the wheel, like a book with the strap on the right hand side pointing towards the wheel and the flap opening to the left.
