LA MANUTENZIONE DELL'e-BIKE
PICCOLI ACCORGIMENTI PER UN MEZZO SEMPRE AL TOP
The maintenance of a pedal assisted bicycle differs from that of a normal bicycle essentially for the motor and electronic component.
Normal maintenance involves cleaning and greasing:
Preventive operation to clean an e-bike is to remove the battery and remove the display. If it is a model that can not be disassembled, cover it with a cloth or film: the display is designed to be impervious to rain, but during washing it is better to be foresight.
Cleaning of mechanical parts can be carried out with special degreasers for chains or with household degreasers like Chanteclair, taking care to brush the whole chain well with a hard bristle brush before and a then brush. Once the dirt from the chain and sprockets has been removed, rinse the components with NON-pressure jets, which could allow the water to enter the seals, and wet the whole bike.
You can now proceed with the general cleaning with soft rags and a good special detergent, such as car shampoos and to rinse always very well.
Finally grease the chain with special bicycle lubricants: better avoid spraying the spray directly on the sprockets, it is better to do it where the chain runs freely and slowly turn the pedals backwards, maybe holding a rag underneath to prevent it from dripping on the floor.
Now we can remount the battery and the display, after having checked that the housings are perfectly dry. A modern lithium battery guarantees a usability (under standard conditions of use) of about 1500 refills, sufficient to cover more than 55,000 kilometers (source: Bosch Service): speaking of normal maintenance, therefore, the battery change is a topic that we can also leave out. It is important, however, that when storing the bike for the winter, the battery has a charge of between 30% and 60%: this expedient will prolong the duration a lot.
All these operations take from 10 to 20 minutes and if carried out frequently, even after each exit, allow you to have a medium in perfect shape for many years.
