Check the brake system

When the electric bike is in a low temperature environment for too long, it is recommended to press the brake lever to confirm whether the disc brake piston is normal.

Pay attention to the wear of the pad. When the thickness of 0.8mm is left, there will be two origin marks on the front of the pad. This is a warning line to remind people that people need to replace the pad.

Is the brake lever distance appropriate?

If the brake lever distance is too long or too short, people can adjust the grip distance by adjusting the connecting rod screw.

Is there any oil on the disc brake?

People can wipe with alcohol to remove oil stains.

Riding precautions

People need to warm up, and electric bikes also need to warm up.

In the low temperature environment in winter, it is recommended to ride a distance at a normal speed before riding to sense the grip of the road and tires, and then determine the intensity of the ride. Because the temperature is too low, the grease on the bearing is not evenly distributed on the balls or the parts that need to be lubricated to go to the ITA, and it accelerates violently at the beginning, which may cause damage to these parts.

Pay attention to the road

people must pay attention to riding in snow, dry snow is the least slippery but affects speed, so it is best to pick wet snow. Avoid riding into dry ice and snow ditch during riding to avoid falling.
