How to lock an e bike to prevent theft
PRACTICE PROPER LOCKING TECHNIQUES! WHILE AN E-BIKE HAS MANY UNIQUE FEATURES, THE FOUNDATION OF PROPER LOCK-UPS STILL APPLY. PLEASE LOOK TO OUR STANDARD BICYCLE LOCK-UP TAB FOR TIPS ON LOCKING PROCEDURE, AS WELL AS LINKS TO HELP YOU FIND THE RIGHT LOCK.
BELOW ARE SOME ADDITIONAL TIPS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN LOCKING E-BIKES SPECIFICALLY.
E-Bikes vary drastically by model. When locking your bike, make sure to lock any installed locking mechanism like a pre-installed battery lock.
Many E-Bikes have a monitor, or cyclometer. Make sure to remove these if possible, and any other easily removable accessories before locking your bike.
If convenient and possible, remove your battery and take it with you.
Often times a chain can be preferable when locking an E-Bike. A chain provides flexibility to ensure you will be able to capture your frame and a wheel, especially when a wheel contains your electric motor.
