Maintenance on electric bike

 

So many people get an electric bike and initially everything is great, but overtime you might end with your electric bike dirt such the chain starts to squeak, or you get a flat tire.

Any model of electric bike (folding electric bike, kids electric bike, electric quad bike) needs a bit of tune up.

 

Lets diving to it:
It is always a good idea when you purchase an ebike you do a tune-up so this will reduce the issues.

When do I bring my bike for a tune up?
It really depends on how much you ride you electric bike, you will know because the following points will be noticeable:

 

bicycle tire pressure – Once a month you should check the psi of bicycle tires, if the tire pressure are out of date, the bicycle tires will get flat reducing the performance of the bicycle ride.

   
   

Adjusting bicycle derailleurbicycle front derailleur and bicycle rear derailleur guard can get damaged pretty easy, getting them damaged the shifters will not work as expected.

 

 

Bicycle chain - The client should clean the bicycle chain and lube the chain.
All the leftover lube will end up on the sprocket and the bicycle rear derailleur.

Always use a bicycle chain cleaner and lubricant-based oils such as WD40 “Chain lubricant”, never use  PENETRATING oils only bicycle chain oil.

 

 

 

Why the disc brakes SQUEAKs and drives the bicycle riders nuts?

You have to take the bicycle brake caliper off also the bicycle brake pads out and spray a brake cleaner on your bicycle disc brakes or most of the times the brake pads needs to be adjusted.

Sometimes the disc brake rotor is slightly bent, the squeaks will continue until the disc is replaced.
