Area 13 - Electric Bikes that are out of this world.

Security Matters | EP 12

Posted by on


Hey everybody! Welcome back to The Bolton Ebikes Podcast. I’m your host, Kyle Chittock, the owner of Bolton Ebikes and today I’m going to talk to you about security.  

There is a particular YouTube video that I have thought about filming for quite some time. If you’ve listened to all of the podcast episodes, you may have heard me mention or reference this - but basically, one of the more common questions people ask about bicycles and ebikes specifically is “How do you keep them secure?” Ebikes are great! You can go so much further, you can travel with them, you can go to the store with them, you can run errands. But if you go to the store, the local library, or even in your driveway. How do you prevent the bike from being stolen?

During this episode you’ll learn more about: 

  • How Kyle secures his bike and makes sure 100% to guarantee it won’t get stolen. 
  • What you can do if you don’t have your keys to your battery - but still need to get it off. And when that might be necessary. 
  • The importance of using the key that comes with your bike to lock and unlock your battery. 
  • What brand of ebikes uses a blank key on all of their ebikes. 
  • What you can do to add additional peace of mind to secure your ebike beyond a good lock. 
  • How to 100% guarantee that your ebike doesn’t get stolen when running a quick errand.

ebike locks Security theft

  • I need an E-bike that can haul a 220 pound 70 year old retired vet. around the Texas Hills. I want to go at least 35 miles an hour which is the top speed in y subdivision. I have been riding motorcycles for over 55 years so I am very confident in my balance and knowledge of two wheel bikes. Which Bolton would you recommend?

  • While I can appreciate the security of taking your bike into a store rather than leaving it outside, I would be rather clumsy looking at things and keeping the bike upright. Have you ever thought of removing the front wheel and taking that in with you? My bike doesn’t have disc brakes so it is easier to remove the front wheel. I look forward to seeing the bike lock you are researching. Sounds pretty effective…:-)

  • I’ve had two bicycles stolen during my 69 years…both as a young man when my younger brother borrowed the bikes and he didn’t lock them to the bike stand. Locks protect a bike…crooks and thieves always go for the easy targets. I don’t have a lock for my ebike and I never leave it out of my sight….thanks for a timely podcast.
