Electric bicycles are an environmentally friendly and practical alternative for daily commuting, but like all bicycles, they require regular maintenance to function optimally. In this article, we will provide you with tips on the regular maintenance of electric bicycles, including battery charging, tire inflation, chain and brake cleaning, and safety checks.
The battery is the most important component of an electric bicycle. Without it, the bike cannot function. Therefore, it is essential to ensure that the battery is always charged. When using your electric bike, try to keep the battery charged between 20% and 80% of its capacity to extend its lifespan. Avoid letting the battery discharge completely, as it can damage the battery and reduce its energy storage capacity.
Underinflated tires can make your ride more difficult and reduce the lifespan of your tires. Therefore, it is important to regularly check the tire pressure. The recommended pressure may vary depending on the type of tire, so it is important to ask your retailer what pressure is recommended for your type of tires. You can also find this information on the sidewall of the tire. Make sure to inflate your tires to the recommended pressure using a bicycle pump.

Chain and Brake Cleaning
Regular cleaning of the chain and brakes is essential for smooth operation. The chain needs to be cleaned and lubricated regularly to prevent it from drying out and breaking. Use a quality chain lubricant to lubricate the chain. The brakes should also be cleaned regularly to remove dust and debris that can reduce their effectiveness. Use a brake cleaner and a cloth to clean the brakes.
