7 Things You Should Never Do On Your Electric Bike.

7 Things You Should Never Do On Your Electric Bike

When it comes to e-bikes, a lot of people think about what you should do with your e-bike. But today we're going to talk about things you should never do to your electric bike.

Overcharge Your Bike

Most people like to charge their e-bikes at night because they need to use them during the day. But charging at night may forget to unplug the charger if you don't need to use the e-bike the next day. That will shorten the battery life and there's some danger in that, even if the charger would have power-off protection because you can't make sure it stays smart all the time. Once the power-off protection fails, and you just overcharge the battery by coincidence, dangerous things may happen, and if it is at night, things will become unpredictable. Therefore, make sure not to overcharge your e-bike.
The right thing to do is to charge your e-bike during the day if possible so that you can unplug it in time when the charger light shows that the battery is full.
Besides, if you're worried about forgetting that your e-bike is charging, you can also set an alarm on your phone to remind you that it's time to unplug your e-bike charger.

Overinflat the tires

When you inflate the tires of the electric bicycle, please keep in mind not to overinflate the tires. Overinflating the e-bike tires is one of the things that can be bad for your e-bike. Because an over-inflated tire can make the tire too tight and cause it easy to blow out when touching the sharp stone. And when riding through rough roads, the shock absorption effect will be significantly worse. Proper tire pressure can provide you with a good riding experience.
Somebody may ask when should I inflate the e-bike tires. The way to judge whether the tire needs to be inflated is easy, that is, you can directly press the tire with your hand, and it can be pressed down, indicating that it needs to be inflated.

Ignore routine maintenance for your e-bike

One small thing that many people may overlook, is the regular maintenance of electric bikes. Regular maintenance of electric bicycles can not only ensure your safety but also prolong the service life of electric bikes. For example, regularly wiping the brake disc rotors to remove any grease or wax from the surface, can ensure the brake's sensitivity.

Upside down your e-bike

Turning your e-bike upside down is an ill-advised choice. On the one hand, that may cause the hydraulic brakes to become insensitive. If it becomes necessary to invert your e-bike for repairs, when you invert it back, you'll need to wait about 15 minutes before riding it and using the brakes.
On the other hand, if you don't pad your e-bike when upside down, e-bike accessories can get damaged, like the handlebar, display, and seat, especially on rough ground. So if it is necessary to invert, pad it.

Ignore the error code

When something goes wrong with your e-bike, generally the display will show an error code. But when the error code appears, many people may ignore that, because they think that the electric bike can still be ridden, and nothing serious will happen. But I would say when an error code occurs, it should be resolved as soon as possible. You don't know what the error code means, if you don't solve it in time, it may cause unpredictable things to happen one day in the future. Therefore, whether it is asking the online after-sales customer service to solve the problem, or going to the bike shop for repairs, it is necessary.

Power on when repairing

When you're doing repairs on your e-bike, it's very important to make sure it's powered off. Because once you accidentally touch the throttle or the pedals, the electric bike will rush out and hit people nearby, or when you are fiddling with the chain, your hand is likely to be caught in the wheel.
Therefore, when repairing an electric bicycle, be sure to turn off the power.

Not locking your e-bike

When you don't lock your e-bike and leave it alone outside the door or in the hallway, then you have to be careful, thieves may have taken a fancy to your e-bike. They will ride it away at night or when no one is passing by. There are even some thieves who will ride the e-bike away as if nothing happened, pretending to be its owner.
So if you don't lock your e-bike, you're giving thieves a chance to make money. If you want to learn more about how to prevent your electric bike from being stolen, you can check Electric Bike Anti-Theft Guide


In general, if you choose electric bikes as your way of transportation, whether you use them for commuting or traveling, the above points are worthy of all riders' attention, especially for those who know nothing about electric bikes.
