It's important to know that e-bikes have become increasingly popular over the past few years, but with that comes some problems. While they are great for both short and long journeys, one of the problems with them is how to store them safely. If you don't want to lose your precious e-bike, you'll learn how to store it properly here.

When it comes time to store an e-bike, most people just leave it on the porch or lean it against a wall. Unfortunately, these are not good options as they can damage the surface of the bike and even incur costly repairs. You don't want that to happen, so we've put together this guide to how you should store your e-bike when you're not riding it.

This guide will teach you everything you need to know about properly storing your e-bike, including where it should be stored, what type of rack is best for each situation, and how much space is needed for optimal storage conditions! We'll also provide tips for avoiding common mistakes, such as leaving your e-bike outside during bad weather or leaning it against your flat's air conditioner.

So, let's get started reading the guide!

Where are e-bikes stored?

A common question people ask is where to store their e-bikes. People usually ask this question because they don't want to damage the finish or paint on their e-bikes. Therefore, you should consider getting a real e-bike rack instead of just putting them against a wall.

Things to consider before storing your e-bike

There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing where to store your e-bike. Following these tips will ensure that your bike is stored safely.

* Avoid exposing the e-bike to excessive moisture, extreme temperatures or extreme humidity.

* Choose a location that provides a suitable storage rack for your e-bike. Choose an e-bike rack that allows you to hang or place your e-bike.

* Do not store the bike in a garage with chemicals, solvents, ammonia-based cleaners or flammable materials.

* Do not put anything on top of the e-bike. Do not let anything sit or lean on it either.

* Do not store in high traffic areas. Your e-bike should not prevent others from using the same space to store their own bikes.

* Do not store your e-bike where it is exposed to the elements (sun, rain, etc.).

Tips for Storing an Electric Bike Indoors!

If you want to store your e-bike indoors, there are a few things to keep in mind.

1. Battery Storage

If you are using lithium-ion batteries, store them at 40-80% capacity and recharge them only when the capacity drops to 20%. If you are using nickel-cadmium batteries, store them at 80% capacity and recharge them occasionally every two months. Also make sure the battery is kept away from heat and moisture.

2. Lubrication Tips

Be sure to lubricate the chain and check other moving parts that may need lubrication. There are several different types of lubricants on the market, choose the one that is best for your bike's drivetrain.

3. Cleaning your e-bike

After dusting off your e-bike, be sure to wipe it down with a rag. This will prevent dust and dirt from adhering to the surface of the bike.

4. Store the battery separately

If you store your e-bike indoors, then you should store the battery separately from the e-bike. This will prevent the battery from being completely drained and damaging the battery itself.

5. Check for loose parts

Be sure to check all parts of your bike before storing it. This will help avoid trouble later due to loose screws, broken parts, etc.

6. Keeping tyres inflated

Depending on the specifics of your e-bike, you may need to keep your tyres fully inflated while in storage. This will ensure that the tyres are always ready for use.

Tips for storing an Electric Bike outdoors!

If you want to store your e-bike outside, there are a few things you need to be aware of.

1. Shelf Location

The location where you use the shelf depends on the weather conditions in your area. If you live in a humid environment, then it is best to lean against a building or wall that does not receive direct sunlight.

- If your area is hot and humid, then it is best to find the shady side of a building or against a wall.

- If you are in a sunny but dry climate, then place your e-bike against a wall to keep rain and moisture out.

2. Inspection and adjustment

Before storing your e-bike, be sure to inspect it and adjust the components as necessary. This will avoid unnecessary servicing or repairs in the future.

3. Choosing the right rack

When choosing an outdoor storage rack, be sure to select a rack that allows you to hang or stand your e-bike. If you choose to hang, the rack should be able to hold at least 50lbs. If your bike weighs more than this, then it's best to choose an upright rack.

4. Cover your e-bike properly

If you want, you can even buy special e-bike covers to protect your e-bike from sun and moisture. There are two main styles of e-bike covers: fully enclosed and open.

- Totally enclosed covers completely protect your e-bike from the elements.

- The open style cover still protects your bike, but also allows it to "breathe".

5. Proper protection from rain and moisture

Depending on the e-bike, you may need to protect your e-bike from rain and moisture. E-bikes with metal frames can withstand all kinds of weather, while e-bikes with plastic frames need extra protection.

Conclusion

Storing an electric bike can be quite a challenging task. Luckily, we've provided you with some tips and tricks to make the whole process easier. If you follow this guide, then you can rest assured that your e-bike is safe and secure.
