What should I do if my e-bike spokes are loose?Updated a year ago

Your e-bike motor is attached to the rear wheel, which applies more stress to the spokes than on a regular bike. Because of this, it's essential to check the strength of the spokes periodically. 

If any spokes are loose, please have them tightened before riding any further. Riding with even one loose spoke will eventually cause all of the spokes to loosen and break, creating a major safety hazard.

Please do not attempt to adjust or tighten your own spokes. This comes down to available tools as well as safety. Instead, please schedule an appointment with your local Magnum dealer.
