Bungee cords frequently appear at E-bike Lovers’ rides to tie anything from batteries to pet baskets. They are inexpensive and versatile, but we no longer love them.
Bungee cords are dangerous when they unintentionally come loose during a ride and get entangled in a wheel. The cords are strong, and the metal hooks can do severe damage to the rims and spokes of wheels and brakes of an e-bike. We have had close calls with disengaging bungee cords entangling into spokes and brakes.
Meet our favorite ROK Straps that combine a tie-down strap and a bungee. Popular with long-distance cyclists, the ROK Straps securely tie anything to your bicycle without the danger of cords getting loose. The ones we recommend do not have metal hooks but are attached to the bike with a strap loop, making it a much safer option than bungee cords with a metal hook.
