Home » Cleaning Your Electric Bike

We make our bikes so that you can explore your surroundings, whether that be on pavement, gravel roads, sand, single track, or a number of other terrain types you choose to ride.

More often than not, some of the terrain you ride on will come back with you on your bike- here’s how to keep your bike clean.

We recommend using waterless e-bike wash as the best option to take care of your M2S electric bike, but you can also use a slightly damp rag to wipe off major dirt and grime. DO NOT USE A HOSE OR PRESSURE WASHER TO SPRAY OFF YOUR ELECTRIC BIKE. 

The use of a pressure washer or hose may introduce water into your bearings or electrical system and can lead to premature failures of those components which will not be covered under warranty. Water and electricity don’t mix.

Once you’ve cleaned the majority of dirt, use a spray bottle of isopropyl alcohol and lint-free shop towel to wipe down the stanchions and seals of your suspension fork. This will help to keep dust and dirt from penetrating your suspension seals and increase the lifespan of your suspension.

On our full-suspension models you will repeat this step for the rear shock.

Spray a light amount of bicycle chain degreaser on your cassette and chain, then use a grunge brush to scrub off the dirt and grime on your drivetrain components. Be careful not to overspray any contaminants onto your disc brake rotors, pads, or calipers as this can severely affect braking performance. Disc brake rotors can also be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and lint-free shop rags.

Wipe down your drivetrain with a lint-free shop towel, apply chain lubricant, then use a fresh shop towel to wipe off any excess.
