Locking up ebikes
How do you guys lockup your ebikes say if work does not allow you to take it inside? How do you lock it up on the street without losing it? Also how do you lock it up when you're going to school for 4-6 hrs at a time?
It costs something like $7 bucks round trip on transit here in Toronto. If I wanted to go to 1-2 places extra a day to buy stuff on the way home it would cost me 1-2 extra bus fare so probably $10/day. Then you have the waiting for the bus which bugs me. Sometimes buses take a while and I could already have covered 3-5km by then.
Some of the colleges are a bit far from me and entering another region in the city thus requiring seperate bus fare to make it up another area.
I'm sure it depends on the type of bike and whether or not the front wheel comes off easily (if so, make sure to lock that up too) and the accessibility of your e-bike motor. But, in general, I would recommend a "U" lock over a cable lock because they are much more difficult to break through.
Considering that the battery may cost more than the rest of the bike, if it doesn't lock itself automatically you may want to bring it inside.
