When you ride an e-bike normally, if you feel that the e-bike is heavy, the electric and pedaling is hard, and the speed is slow, we call these phenomena as riding hard orstrenuous riding. Once you have this situation that the more you ride your electric bike, the more strenuous it is, it is likely to be caused by the following 7 major reasons.
Cause 1: Insufficient tire inflation or jogging air, which increases the rolling friction between the tire and the ground.
Elimination method: Tires replenish air. If it is jogging air, repair the tire after inspection and then inflate it for riding.
Cause 2: The electric bicycle rim touches the gate skin or other parts and friction occurs.
Elimination method: ① fit or adjust the wheel; ② adjust the position of the gate skin.
Cause 3: The frictional resistance between the front and rear axle rolling bearings is too large.
Elimination method: ① the front and rear axle screwed too tight shaft block appropriate loosening; ② chain pulled too tightly caused by the axle and the rear axle friction resistance is too large, adjust the chain tension; ③ such as mud and oil caused by the front and rear axle friction resistance is too large, to clean; ④ due to rolling bearing parts broken, or due to loss of oil ablation and cause its friction resistance is too large, to replace the worn parts.
Cause 4: electric bicycle transmission system friction resistance is too large.
Elimination method: ① adjust the transmission system parts so that the flywheel, sprocket and chain are on the same plane; ② eliminate the axial runout of the sprocket.
Cause 5: wheel is soft.
Elimination method: Check the spoke tension, if it is not enough, lock the spokes.
Cause 6: The chain is too tight.
The elimination method is simple, adjust the front and rear position of the rear wheel axle.
Cause 7: Front and rear axle block and middle axle parts and caps are too tight or parts are worn.
Once this happens, loosen the fasteners or replace or repair the worn parts.
These are the 7 reasons why riding an electric bicycle is easy to ride hard. Everyone in the daily use of electric bicycle, must pay attention to regular inspection, so that there will not be "hard to ride" situation.
In addition, when buying an e-bike, try to choose a high quality dealer or brand with a good reputation, such as GHstore, which is a professional e-bike dealer with good service, sales, customer service, technical support and other aspects of the construction of a very good, can provide consumers with a better service and experience.
