What type of maintenance should I be performing on my bike?

Updated 2 months ago by Lectric eBikes

We recommend having your bike inspected by a certified and reputable bike mechanic before your first ride, followed by regular maintenance.

Best Practices:

  1. Store your bike in a clean, dry place to avoid rust.
  2. Keep components tightened to the torque specifications listed in the Recommended Torque Values section of the user manual.
  3. Ensure the frame latch and handlebar latch are locked in place before riding.
  4. Clean and lubricate moving parts regularly.
  5. Clean your bike frame with a wet rag and low residue cleaner. After cleaning, lubricate where necessary.
  6. Ensure your bike tires are always inflated to a pressure within the recommended range printed on the tire sidewalls.
  7. Before each ride ensure all electrical wires are connected.
The Lectric XP is not waterproof. The bike's electrical components have an IP rating of 65. It is likely that components will not sustain damage in most rain showers, however Lectric eBikes recommends storing and riding the bike in a dry environment. Furthermore, water damage is not covered under warranty.

Inspect Regularly:

  1. For the Lectric XP and the Lectric XP Step-Thru, inflate your tires to the pressure listed on the tire sidewall.
  2. Lubricate chain until there is little noise from the drivetrain; we recommend using Tri-Flow chain lubrication.
  3. Check that all hardware is tightened to the torque specifications listed in the Recommended Torque Values section of our user manual.
  4. Check your brake pads for signs of wear and replace if necessary.
  5. Check your bike’s shifting performance and adjust the derailleur if necessary.
  6. Clean the bike with a low residue cleaner; we recommend using Simple Green. Use a rag to dry everything completely.
  7. Check spoke tension and adjust if necessary. The recommended spoke tension can be found in the Recommended Torque Values section of our user manual.

Please refer to our manual for a more detailed guide.
