Have you just bought a new electric bicycle? Then of course you want to be able to enjoy it for as long as possible. That is why it is important to maintain your electric bicycle regularly so that the lifespan of the electric bicycle increases. The maintenance of an electric bicycle is just as important as the maintenance of a traditional bicycle. However, there are a number of extra things that you have to take into account with an electric bicycle. For example, it is important to charge the battery on time and to store it properly when you are not using the bicycle. It is also wise to check the electrical installation regularly and to solve any problems before they get worse. In addition, the same maintenance tips apply to an electric bicycle as to a traditional bicycle
Check tire pressure and brakes
For example, it is important to keep the tire pressure up to standard. This is not only important for safety, but also to prevent the tires from wearing out too quickly. It is also wise to check the brakes regularly and replace them if necessary. Brake pads and brake cables can wear out with use, so it is important to replace them in time.
Clean and lubricate chain and gear
It is also wise to regularly clean and lubricate the resistance. This helps to keep the resistance running smoothly and to prevent too much resistance. It is also important to lubricate the chain regularly to prevent the chain from jamming or starting to rust.
Check electrical installation
Also don't forget to check the electrical installation regularly, such as the connections and the battery. Problems with the electrical installation can cause the bicycle to malfunction or even stop working altogether. It is therefore wise to check these matters in time and to solve any problems.
Place the bicycle in a dry and safe place
In addition, it is wise to store the bicycle in a dry and safe place to prevent the bicycle from being damaged or problems caused by moisture. When the bicycle is not in use, it is recommended to remove the battery from the bicycle and store it in a dry and safe place. This helps to extend battery life. If the bicycle is not used for a long time, it is recommended to inflate the tires and move the bicycle to prevent the tires from falling out.
Consult professionals regularly
It is advisable to have your electric bicycle checked regularly by a professional. They can detect any problems in time and help to keep the bike in top condition. They can also give you advice about the maintenance of your bicycle and which parts you can use best.
