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 short and long journeys, they have a problem - 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 aren't good options because they can damage the surface of the bike and even lead to expensive 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 storing your e-bike correctly, including where to store your e-bike, what type of frame is best for each situation, and how much space you need for optimal storage conditions! We'll also provide tips for avoiding common mistakes, such as leaving your bike outside during inclement weather or leaning it against your flat's air conditioner.

So, let's get started reading the guide!

Where to store your e-bike?

A common question people ask is where should I store my e-bike? 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.

1. Avoid exposing your e-bike to excessive moisture, extreme temperatures, or extreme humidity.

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

3. 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.

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

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

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

Tips for storing your e-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. Cleaning the 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.

3. Check for loose parts

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

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. 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 best suits your e-bike drivetrain.

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 your e-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 cool side of a building or against a wall.

- - If you are in a sunny but dry climate, then lean against a wall so that the e-bike is protected from rain and moisture.

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.

- - The fully enclosed cover will completely protect your e-bike from the elements.

- - The open style cover still protects your e-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 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.


Storing an e-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.
