Do Electric Bikes Need Specific Storage?

Futuristic living is here! Technology has enhanced our lives in every way. Whether it’s through breakthrough treatments, renewable energy, or new athletic concepts to keep us active (and alive) for longer. An electric bike is one of these advancements. You may have already spotted one of them speeding through your neighbourhood. 

Cycling is, in our opinion, one of the best methods to get from A to B. However, the prospect of travelling great miles on a bike might be intimidating, especially if you aren’t as fit and agile as you once were. An injury or a lack of practice might often prevent us from even starting, and we end up taking the car or even not going out at all.

That’s where electric bicycles come in. Electric bikes utilise a motor to assist you while you ride, allowing you to cover more ground with less effort.

However, when you buy and use an e-bike, it is important that you maintain and store it according to specific criteria to ensure correct and safe operation. We are all aware that the warm days have passed us by and that crisp autumn has arrived. If you are not a dedicated E-bike commuter, you will most likely put your E-bike away for the winter. Because E-bikes are more expensive than traditional bicycles, there are a few extra precautions to take when storing your Electric Bike for the winter.

This post will go over everything you need to know about safely storing your e-bike.

Things to think about before putting your Electric Bicycle away

There are three significant aspects to examine and understand before preparing your e-bike for storage: appropriate cleaning, charging, and battery maintenance. It is important you consider these variables since they have a significant impact on the immediate and long-term safety and functionality of your e-bike.

First, clean it well and make sure it is completely dry. Clean and lubricate important components such as the chain and cassette. Next, follow the instructions in the instruction booklet that came with your e-bike to charge your battery. If you don’t charge your battery correctly, it will deteriorate and eventually die.
