If you have joined the thousands of New Zealanders riding an E-Bike you will know how much fun this experience is and what it opens up for you. Being able to ride further, faster or over challenging terrain (hills) is something that many people have taken too with much enthusiasm. But like any bike you are vulnerable to mechanical failure and you need to prepare yourself for this.
Bike Tools you should carry with an E-Bike
For the most part you need to be prepared for the same types of things any bike rider experiences. Flat tyres, seats that need adjustment, bolts that have loosened, chains snapping… This means tools should be carried that match your needs and ability to help yourself or group.
Tool Kits should get bigger as distance from help increases. This is just sensible stuff and allows you to ride and be safe. See our range of Bike Tools Kits to get a better understanding of this.
The minimum you or someone in your group should be carrying…
- Spare tube/s or a puncture repair kit
- A pump
- Tyre levers – set of 3
- A simple Allen/Hex Key or basic multi-tool
