Not present on the Year
At any other period -
When March is scarcely here
A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.
- A Light Exists in Spring, by Emily Dickinson
After a cold winter "seal", the sun has finally returned after so long a wander! Seeing the sunlight spilling over the windowsill and the flower buds climbing on the branches, we know: Spring is coming! In this wonderful season, let's revel in the charm of nature! So, have you prepared your ebike yet?
Before you start pedaling away in earnest, it’s a good idea to give your bike a tip-to-tail once-over. Whether you spent the colder months splashing through ice and mud, sweating away in the wind, or not riding at all, your bike could almost get damaged. We hope your electric bike would certainly benefit from some TLC. Follow this guide to prep your ebike after the winter season, and start riding asap!
Clean your electic bike
Dirt and mud will increase wear on parts. When mixed with water and grease, it forms a paste. At best it reduces the efficiency of the bike, at worst it wears out parts quickly. Remember, the smoother and more efficient your ebike runs, the longer the lifespan of key components. Also, riding with a clean, efficient drive system and properly tuned gears will ultimately lead to a more enjoyable experience and will help you get the most out of your electric bike in the long run.
If your drive system looks dirty, you can do a quick clean with a rag or use a degreaser deep cleaner. Lather some degreaser on the drivetrain to remove any grit and grime, and scrub away. Then, using a mild detergent and warm water, give the rest of your bike a bath.
Lubricate the components
The cleaning process, mainly the use of decontaminant, will wash out the lubricant inside the chain, so we must re-oil the chain to ensure the smooth movement of the chain. The lubricating oil will form an oil film on the metal surface of the chain and flywheel, which can greatly reduce friction and increase transmission efficiency. Also, it can reduce the wear and tear of the metal.
Check the tires
To check whether the tire pressure is normal, you can put your body weight on the handlebars or saddle to observe whether the tires are too soft. You can also use your finger. If the tires are soft, it means that the air pressure is not enough and needs to be inflated. Observe the wear of the tires, and replace the tires in time if the wear is serious. Riding on ice and mud takes a heavy toll on tires.
Get prepared for the rain
In spring, there will be continuous drizzle or wet weather, so you should prepare your electric bicycle for rain. All parts of the electric bicycle should be sealed and protected from rain, and kept in a dry environment as much as possible to avoid potential safety hazards.
Tune it up
If you are unsure about your electric bike, go to your favorite local store and get it tuned up. Keep in mind that spring is often the busiest time of the year for these stores. Therefore, it's a good idea to call ahead, make an appointment, and expect the process to take a few days.
