My Cannondale Synapse ebike came with a plug to insert in the frame after removing the battery to transport the bike on a rack. Concerned about too much water getting into the motor area, etc. What is your experience? Recommendations?
 
I guess nobody has experience with that bobcat931. I can see why you want to prevent damage to that C'dale during transport.
You could use a basic bicycle cover, Wrap extra straps around the cover while you transport the bike on the rack .
-When I was working away from home, would stay in my travel trailer in an RV park. I kept my bikes on a hitch carrier and covered them as well with an inexpensive bike cover.
-It would be great to haul the e-bike in the back of an SUV or minivan, but the budget does not always allow that.

I have a cover but when it obscures the tail lights. Looking for a solution. Any ideas?
 
Reviving this thread. We plan on doing long distance travel with our bikes. (Aventon L2s)
Have options of rack or back of Pick up, but our main concern is all the electronics in nasty wet weather.
Just curious what others have done to protect their bikes from the elements while traveling.
Thx
 
Since a good cover would go a long way to keeping things dry, I'd suggest that. Maybe saran wrap in sensitive areas. If your vehicle tail lights are blocked, magnetic-mount temporary tail lights are available. Amazon has them for $20 and up.
 
Thx. Been looking at some covers. Lots of choices of quality. Any recommendations from someone with experience would be great.
Tail light thing I got covered.
thx again.

I bought this cover from Amazon. Transportation option. (There is also a heavy duty transportation version.) The cover is heavy duty, not at all like the flimsy models that rip apart in the wind. I used it one time driving through a wicked storm and it held up fine. Strapped the bike down with Rhino soft loop motorcycle tie-cowns before appying the cover. I improvised a license plate bracket to attach to the bike rack. Tail lights are adequately visible.
