Parking/Storage/Transport

How to Store and Transport Your Bike.

  • When pushing or carrying the bike manually, turn off the power to avoid accidental acceleration from the motor.

  • Turn the power and any lights off to conserve battery.

  • Ensure the battery is locked to the frame in the off position or use the key to remove the battery and bring it with you for security or storing in a temperature-controlled location.

  • Park indoors when possible. If you must park outdoors in rain or wet conditions, leave your ebike outside for only a few hours and then park it in a dry location as soon as possible to allow all of the systems to dry out. As with a regular bike, an ebike used in wet conditions needs more frequent maintenance to prevent rust, corrosion, etc., and to ensure all systems are working safely.

  • In public places, your Fission Bike must be parked in accordance with local rules and regulations.

  • Locking up your bike is recommended to ensure your bike is secure and the chance of theft is reduced. Fission Cycles makes no claims or recommendations on the proper lock hardware or procedures to secure your bike, but we do recommend you take appropriate precautions to keep your bike safe from theft.

  • Do not park, store, or transport your Fission Bike on a vehicle rack not designed for the bike’s size and weight.

  • Use a vehicle rack compatible with the width of tires used on your bike. Some racks may not accommodate all tire widths.

  • When carrying your bike on a vehicle rack for transport, unlock and remove the battery. This will reduce the weight of the bike, make lifting and loading easier, and allow you to protect the battery by transporting it in the cab of a vehicle.

  • Avoid transporting your Fission Bike on a vehicle rack during rain, as this may cause water damage to the electrical components.

Please follow these basic parking, storage, and transport tips to ensure your bike is well cared for on and off the road.

 If you are not confident in your ability to successfully and safely perform all steps, we recommend having the work performed or checked by a local, certified, and reputable bike mechanic.
