Do not ride an electric bike unless you have these essentials

You found The. Perfect. Ebike.


You did months of research. You considered every opinion on which electric bike in Sydney you should buy. You test rode various models.

You are ready to rock and ride.


Congratulations!



But that was just the first step. Now comes the difficult part: which ebike accessories will you require to fully enjoy the ebike lifestyle?


In this post, you'll learn about the three essential electric bike accessories for any e-bike owner: safety, lighting, and transportation/storage capacity.


First aspect: Safety

Helmet

This should go without saying, but even if you're on a seemingly easy trail with few obstacles, you should always, always wear a helmet. It's the most important. You should get a bike helmet if you don't already have one. A cheap one is better than nothing, but having a cheap one takes the pressure off of getting a good helmet...and you should end up with a good helmet. There are hundreds of bicycle helmet styles available, but if you don't like the traditional style and a motorcycle helmet is too expensive, you might consider an inexpensive skateboarder helmet. Get our retrospec bicycle helmet here https://www.avocadoebike.com/product-page/retrospec-bicycle-helmet , which comes in 2 colours.



Locker

There are currently two types of lockers for e bikes, which are folding bike locks and u-locks.

Folding bike lock

U-locks

Weight

​Slightly heavier

Slightly lighter

Security

​Higher

Lower

Locking options

More

Fewer

Ease of transport

Easier

More difficult

​Storage space

​Less

More

From the above comparison, it is clear the folding bike lock has more advantages than the u-lock. So, if you want a lock that is easy to transport and provides a variety of locking options, a folding bike lock is an excellent choice.

Repair support frame

While there are technically over a dozen repair support frames for E Bikes, we'd like to focus on the one at Avocado Ebike, which is a one-of-a-kind frame holder and wheel carrier design. It has front and rear plug-in design, which makes it simple and practical. It is made of high-quality aluminium alloy material, which is more solid, with four-point loading to ensure stability. The foldable design makes it easy to transport and store. This repair support frame is suitable for all types of e-bikes. Get it here.

Repair kit

Unexpected situations such as loose bolts, falling chains, flat tyres, and so on occur from time to time, and these upsetting circumstances will ruin your trip! A well-prepared basic electric bike repair kit will be especially useful at this time. It will keep you out of trouble, ensure your personal safety, and provide you with a fantastic riding trip all at the same time. At Avocado Ebike, the Bafang Mid Drive Kit is our best seller. https://www.avocadoebike.com/product-page/bbs02b-48v750w-bafang-mid-drive-kit . This kit has everything you need to convert your regular bike into a high-performance electric bike. It's a lot of fun to ride and it's fast. For a smoother ride, we do update and improve the settings of each kit. Plus, we offer excellent after-sales service with a warranty period of 12 months.




Second aspect: Lighting

Front light LED

When considering an ebike lighting system, you must make one major design decision. Do you get a front and rear light set with a rechargeable battery pack? or...do you get the kind that's powered by your ebike's battery pack? Having a light like this https://www.avocadoebike.com/product-page/bicycle-front-light-led on your side significantly improves your chances of safety. If you have an ebike, you can have lights that are powered by the main battery. It is not only more convenient, but it also reduces the likelihood of ending up on the road with a dead battery for the lights.



Third aspect: Transportation / capacity

Mudguard fender

Fenders are what keep you from getting drenched if you ride in the rain, and a front fender will help protect your feet and ankles from spray if you ride in the rain or through a puddle. They won't keep you dry if you're riding in a torrential downpour, but even in a light drizzle, you'll be dryer, warmer, and more comfortable with fenders than without. Fenders are a feature that is rarely found on entry-level ebikes. Customers are always price-sensitive, and removing the fenders is one way to keep the purchase price of an ebike under $2000. However, if you end up using your street ebike frequently, you will quickly discover that adding fenders can save you from getting splashed with mud and water. Most street-commuting ebikers would be content with simple plastic fenders that are inexpensive, light, and do not rust, like this one https://www.avocadoebike.com/product-page/bicycle-mudguard-fender .



Battery Replacement

The battery is one of the most important and most expensive components of any e-bike. The battery determines how long the bike can be used without being recharged, how long it will work, how much it weighs, and so on. In general, the battery is the component to which you should pay the most attention when purchasing an electric bike. If you're planning on charging deep in the woods, an extra battery pack is a must. We recommend that you purchase a high-capacity backup battery pack like this one https://www.avocadoebike.com/product-page/48v-20ah-960wh-silver-fish-style-battery . Choosing a good battery directly affects its efficiency and the amount of distance you can travel on a single charge. Even when the size and weight are the same, different batteries can perform very differently depending on the type and structure. Capacity, voltage, size, weight, charging time, and total battery life are all characteristics of all batteries.


Basket (come along with certain models)

An electric bike with a basket in front holds your helmet, bicycle lock, gloves, sunglasses, and possibly a dozen other personal items that make your rides easier, safer, and more convenient. It keeps your most frequently used items within easy reach while sitting on your ebike, as well as within eye-view while riding. Rear cargo baskets should not extend any further forward than the axle of the rear wheels, or your heel will keep bumping into it when you pedal. Whether your baskets are "affordable" or extravagant, large or small...They are a fantastic addition to any ebike.
