Maintaining your e-bike is crucial to keeping it on the road and running smoothly. Just completing some quick and easy tasks every week or two can make all the difference.
The best way to look after your bike is to store it properly, check your tyre pressures, clean it every so often, and apply some lubricant to the chain (if you have one on your bike). You can see our article on correct storage here.
The best way to check your tyre pressures, is to use a pump with a gauge attached. You'll find the recommended pressures on the sidewall of the tyres.
You should clean your bike when you start to notice a build up of grime. We recommend using water and a mild detergent, and to take care around moving components such as the gears and brakes.
Whenever you clean your bike you should also lubricate your chain, you can purchase this via bike retailers or online. Apply a small amount whilst turning the pedals so you get a thin, even coverage on the chain - you may find it easier to turn your bike upside down to do this.
