Keeping your e-bike clean comes with a bunch of benefits. Clean bicycles not only look nice, but they also work better and go faster. Regular cleaning will keep your e-bike free from costly repairs or damage due to rust or corrosion, and it only takes 10-15 minutes to do it properly. The first thing to remember about washing your e-bike is to not use high pressure water.
So what is the best method to keep your e-bike clean?
The ideal solution is dry ice cleaning – a technology that brings a number of benefits and eliminates several problems compared to cleaning with conventional methods.
Dry ice cleaning vs. Cleaning with water
Washing the e-bike with a pressure water is not the best solution, as it can cause water to get into the bearings. When cleaning with dry ice, you do not need any sponges, buckets of water, brushes, chemicals you do not have to remove the battery and electronic components. You can also thoroughly clean the chain, converters and pinions with dry ice without creating more (in this case – oil waste) and as the process is dry, you will not have to look for the % water resistance of your e-bike and wipe it with a cloth. You will save much time. The whole process does not take more than 15 minutes. After thorough cleaning of the e-bike, the only thing left is to lubricate the moving parts.
