CHOOSE YOUR PERFECT BIKE

Put some pressure under your electric bike

Properly inflated tires are the unspoken heroes of keeping a bike in shape, and your Juicy bike is no different. A bike with too little air pressure in its tires feels cumbersome and sluggish, as well as being vulnerable to punctures and damaged rims. Too much pressure and you’ll lose grip while turning, wear out your tires faster, and maybe blow out the inner-tube altogether. Get the air pressure in the sweet spot, however, and you’ll roll forward smoothly, turn responsively, and increase the lifespan of every part of your wheel. Fortunately for us, getting the right pressure is dead easy: Properly inflated tyres are important for electric bikes. 

 We recommend simply pumping each tire to the point where it’s too firm to deform with your thumb. This complex technical measurement tells you that your tires are inflated to roughly our recommended air pressure: 60 Pounds Per Square Inch (PSI) for the Classic and Sport, 40 PSI for the Compact. With this method you can enjoy the benefits of properly inflated tires without a pressure gauge - just be sure to give the tire squeeze every few pumps to make sure you don’t over-inflate. 

If you prefer a more precise approach to bike maintenance, or if your pump happens to have a pressure gauge built in, you might want to inflate to the aforementioned PSI levels exactly. To be doubly sure of the recommended air pressure for a particular tire, just check along the sidewall (the flat edge that runs around a tire’s circumference). It will always be printed into the rubber in both imperial and metric units (PSI and BAR respectively), so you can always inflate to the recommended pressure even if you opt for non-standard tires.

Your tires will unavoidably lose air even without a puncture, sometimes over the course of a few days. If you take a moment to check for proper inflation each time you go out, adding a touch more air when needed, you’ll be rewarded with a responsive, smooth ride, fewer punctures, and a longer life for your spokes, rims and tires. Not bad for 30 seconds work. 

So there you have it, a simple but often overlooked part of keeping your Juicy bike happy. We hope you found this article helpful, and if you’ve got any more technical questions feel free to give us a call or drop us an email. Happy cycling.
