Do’s and don’ts of e.bikes…
DO Service your e.bike like any other bike.
DO Take your e.bike to your local bike shop for its first service within 30 days from purchase, this is to tighten up all bolts, check gear settings etc.
DO Service your bike at least every 12 months.
DO Keep the chain clean and lubed.
DO Check disc brake pads for wear on a regular basis and replace before they wear out.
DO Disconnect or remove the battery if the bike will not be used for more than 2 weeks.
DO Keep your bike clean.
DO Keep your tyres correctly inflated.
DO Obey the road laws in your area.
DO Wear a helmet on every ride.
DO Ride often and have fun!
DON’T use a high-pressure hose to wash your bike, use a wet cloth to wipe down the frame and wheels.
DON’T take the bike through water that is deeper than the bottom of the front chain ring.
DON’T park your electric cycle under harsh sunlight for long hours. Look for a parking spot with sufficient shade to park the e.bike. This protects the cycle frame, components, and paint coating, thus increasing the longevity of your e.bike.
DON’T attempt to modify the motor or battery system in any way.
DON’T spray water directly on the LCD display, a simple wipe will do.
