We here at Urban Drivestyle would like to present the Urban Drivestyle GPS-Tracker to you. It’s an anti-theft device you simply can’t do without.
Plus, see how to lock up and unlock your valuable e-bike and what else you need to take care of for the security of your pedelec.
Using your UD-bike you can get from A to B in safety, comfort and with a good environmental conscience. You arrive at work relaxed and, at the weekend, a bike trip for two or with several riders is even more fun. But then the nightmare! You go to your e-bike and it’s gone or you don’t know where you’ve left it charging or locked it up. Well that won’t happen with your UD-bike.
Had an accident, had it stolen or simply parked it and can’t remember where? With the compact, smart UD #FINDMYBIKE 2.0 GPS-TRACKER you can get around with confidence and worry-free. You can use and control all the features using an app.
If you’ve had an accident with your pedelec, the Tracker has accident recognition with a service centre and emergency service.
If you’ve parked your cherished bike but can’t find it anymore, you have theft protection and a recovery service all included. The proportion recovered is currently over 93 percent.
You can use even more features and services with the app. For example, would you like to know what routes you’ve ridden, how many kilometers you’ve covered and how much CO2 you’ve saved in comparison with using a car? Using your GPS- Tracker you can manage your travel statistics with ease.
You can access additional technical data, info and Tracker mounting instructions on the UD-Bike-Tracker product details page.
If you act on all our tips, you can be even more relaxed as you get around on your UD-bike, day and night, whether your UD-bike is on or off duty.
A good lock is half the battle. If you’re going to lock your bike securely, don’t go for false economies. As a rule of thumb your lock should be well worth 5-10 percent of the e-bike purchase price to you. Our recommendation: the Abus folding bike lock. Extra tip: always engage the lock as high as possible on the bike frame. That way the thief can’t prop the bolt-cutter against the ground.
Always lock your UD-bike through the back wheel, because that’s where the motor is. Never ever lock your valuable UD-bike just through the front wheel. The front wheel is easy to detach and relatively cheap to replace afterwards.
Lock your bike to fixed objects like posts, firmly attached bike racks or cellar window grills. Take care that the object is firmly attached to the ground or wall.
Don’t make it too easy for the thief. Defeating two locks takes a lot more time than just one. Which means, if a thief only has a maximum of three minutes to steal your bike, two good locks significantly raise the time required.
Always lock easily removable parts of your bike separately, like a quickly-detachable saddle for example. Urban Drivestyle’s cool e-bikes don’t actually have any quickly-detachable components, but that’s no guarantee. Many bikers in the UD community have customized their e-bikes in such a way that the bike accessories potentially remain unprotected on the bike. If you have a separate lock for these items, take it along.
Always take the battery with you. Why? Alongside the motor it’s not only a core element of your bike, but also the most expensive component. There’s a practical side benefit in the winter; the e-bike battery is sensitive to cold and it’s safer to store it in a warm room. Its capacity won’t degrade so fast. But if you do leave the battery outside, always take the battery key out and take that with you.
Keep the two keys to the battery separate. It’s best to always keep one key at home or in the same place.
And if you don’t want to leave a thing, not one thing, to chance, then we recommend you go for a GPS-Tracker. Our tip: the UD #FINDMYBIKE 2.0 GPS TRACKER. There’s even a 100% recovery GUARANTEE.
We wish you yet more fun on your next UD-ride!
