Once you’ve got your Rhino set up and you’re ready to head out on an adventure, it’s important to think about protecting your bike from loss or theft. It can only take a few seconds for someone to swipe a bike and we’d hate for you to have to wait a long time for a replacement!
Invest in a high quality lock
While Rhinos come with a key lock on the battery, we recommend investing in a quality lock to protect your bike when you’re not riding it. Our go-to models are the Kryptonite "New York Legend" and "Evolution". While we don’t sell these locks, they’re easy to find online and in a number of sports or specialist bike shops.
Use the ZuGo Wireless Siren Alarm
Designed to emit a loud siren noise if it’s bumped or moved while activated, our Siren Alarm is a great extra deterrence for anyone eyeing up your Rhino. See our articles on how the Siren Alarm works or Installing and using the Siren Alarm for more information.
Make note of your Rhino’s serial number
You can find the serial number on your handlebar post (see picture below).
Register your bike
We recommend registering your bike with Bike Index or 529 Garage (free online databases that are searchable by police departments and bike shops) as they can be useful in the event your Rhino is lost or stolen.
Insure your bike
If using a lock and an alarm still doesn’t give you peace of mind, you might want to consider getting e-bike insurance. While it won’t protect your Rhino from getting stolen, it will mean it won’t hurt as much to get a new one. Check to see if your homeowner or renter’s insurance policy covers e-bikes, and if not, a quick Google search will probably produce plenty of e-bike insurance options for your state.
