Electric bikes aren’t that different to regular bikes when it comes to maintenance

Electric bikes aren’t that different to regular bikes when it comes to maintenance, but there are a few things you need to do to keep them working effectively.

1. Look after the battery. Always charge and store your battery at room temperature and keep at around 60% full if not being used for a little while.

2. Take extra care when cleaning the frame and chain. Don’t use a pressure washer to clean your e-bike. Even though the casing is water resistant high-pressure water could still penetrate into the motor. Use a hose pipe and avoid targeting water at the battery or motor areas.

3. Regularly check your tyre pressure. Low-pressure tyres will dramatically reduce the range your bike can achieve and having your tyres at the correct pressure also reduces the risk of punctures.

4. Consider a regular service. Like a car needs a MOT, getting your e-bike serviced is a good way to make sure it keeps performing at its best. Electric bikes don’t need servicing any more or less frequently than a non-electric model but we would recommend you have it serviced once a year. Each of our branches have fully trained, qualified technicians who can ensure your bike is running smoothly and efficiently.
