Cleaning Your Blix Bike
You can clean your bike in a few different ways, depending on which part of the bike you need to clean and what kind of dirt, grime, or stain is present.
In general, you can wash your Blix gently with a damp cloth using specialty bike cleaners or even mild dish soap if the bike frame is especially grimy. We do not recommend using pressure washer systems since the water can be forced into bearings and electrical systems, potentially causing issues with the performance of your Blix.
If you happen to notice any dirt or corrosion around the connections where the batteries plug into, you can try cleaning it off using alcohol, paper towels, and Q-Tips. After you clean it out, we'd suggest applying Dielectric Grease which you can find at most electronic stores; this will help the connections keep a good current flowing through them.
For especially hard things like tar or gravel, you can find a guide on how to remove them here. We've also had several customers recommend using Autoglym Tar Remover as it works very well in removing tar without dissolving the paint on the bike frame. Please note, we cannot guarantee the efficacy of this product since it is sold by a third party and we haven't conducted any specific tests regarding it.
Aside from keeping your bike clean, make sure to check the nuts and bolts on your Blix to make sure they are tight and secure. We also recommend having periodic maintenance checks by a local bike technician to ensure your Blix continues running smoothly. How many of these checks are necessary will depend on a variety of factors, so we suggest using your best judgment in this matter.
