Understanding how to maintain your ebike is crucial for its long-term use. Regular and proper maintenance can keep your ebike in optimal performance and extend its lifespan, saving you money in the long run.
1. Establish a regular maintenance schedule
You can create a maintenance plan based on your usage, considering factors such as frequency of use, typical riding distance, and road conditions. For example, if you ride in urban areas 3-4 days a week with shorter distances, quarterly maintenance may be sufficient. If you frequently ride on rural roads with longer distances, it is recommended to check your bike monthly. Rural paths may have unexpected gravel that could get stuck in tire treads or cause damage; regular inspections can address these issues before they become bigger problems.
2. Pay attention to your tires
VELOWAVE models are equipped with All Terrains Fat Tires, allowing smooth rides on various terrains. However, you still need to regularly check tire pressure. Optimal tire pressure balances grip and rolling resistance. Ensure the pressure is within the recommended range and inspect for any signs of damage. Lastly, periodically assess tire wear and consider replacements if necessary.
3. Take care of your battery
Battery life is essential for ebike range. Firstly, charge the battery in a dry environment and avoid placing it in excessively cold or hot locations. Secondly, try to avoid letting the battery level drop too low; if storing for an extended period of time when not using it daily or weekly basis please keep between 30% - 60% power; Finally，if using during rainy days protect the battery from direct contact with water as much as possible，and dry off after exposure. If you need a charger or replacement battery，you can purchase them through our official website.
4. Maintain cleanliness and lubrication of drivetrain
Due to higher speeds and longer mileage capabilities of ebikes, the chain undergoes more wear and tear. Regular cleaning and lubrication are essential. Typically, use a rag to remove old oil and accumulated dirt before applying a suitable amount of lubricant. Additionally, promptly replace the chain if significant wear is observed.
VELOWAVE electric bikes are of excellent quality. By following these maintenance recommendations diligently, your ebike will remain in good condition and accompany you on many exciting adventures.
