Taking your e-bike in for service is a natural part of the ownership experience.Over the course of hundreds of Troxus miles (and lots of fun!) ), brake pads get thinner, chain lube gets washed away, and tire tread breaks. But while wear and tear is a guarantee, occasionally turning to a trusted professional can keep you riding your Troxus for years.

How often should you perform maintenance?

Generally, we recommend a basic tune-up at least every six months or 750-1,250 miles, but paying close attention to how, where and when you ride can help you develop a more personalized routine.

If you schedule a basic diagnosis or tune-up at a reputable bike store, you can expect service that covers your brakes, chainstays, chain, wheels, rims, hubs, spokes and tires. Most suppliers will also offer major repairs, which usually include the same items as a tune-up, but may include replacement parts.

We will look at what service intervals may be realistic for a range of riders, but keep in mind that your results may vary depending on your ride and circumstances.As always, make sure you follow the pre-ride safety checklist in the latest version of the manual.

The Commuter 

City rides are full of hard and sudden stops. By following a consistent maintenance schedule, you can ensure that your brakes are always performing at their best.

You live to ride and ride to live. Every day starts with tearing up the bike lane and ends with headlights guiding your path.

You often use pedal assist, carry a lot of weight, and ride up big hills even in snow, salt, and mud. Because your parts work harder, they will wear out faster, which means they may need more TLC.

How often you ride your bike: Daily.

Miles: 15-20.

Terrain: Big hills, urban traffic.

Cargo: Passengers, groceries, odds and ends.

Off-Road Rider

Dirt and grit will wear out your chain. They're cheap and easy to replace, and if you catch it early in the process, you'll be able to dramatically extend the life of the rest of your bike.
You won't take your bike out every day, but when you use it, you're really using it. It's the weekend, after all.

You rely on a modest pedal assist and carry some cargo. You won't be stopped by rain or mud, but when it gets particularly nasty out, you may choose to skip your ride.

How often you ride: A few times a week.

Miles: 10-15.

Terrain: Some hills, natural.

Cargo: gear, extra clothes, lunch.

The Casual Rider

If you ride on normally flat surfaces, your brakes will require less maintenance than riders charging down big hills every day.
When the weather is nice, your bike goes out. What better way to get some fresh air than a day trip?

You are using a lot of pedal assist instead of carrying a lot of cargo. You're also riding in good conditions in dry areas, which means your mechanical system doesn't take too much punishment.

How often you ride: Occasional excursions.

Miles: 5-10.

Terrain: Flat terrain with paved trails.

Cargo: Only keys and phone.
