Maintaining Your New Bicycle


Tool Wall



Do bicycles need maintenance?  Definitely.  How much and how often really depends on how, where and how often you use your bicycle.  It's a good idea to have your bicycle serviced about once a year.  This service would typically include an inspection(for worn items) wash, lube and re-adjustment.  Throughout your riding season you should check/add air pressure to your tires every week up to about once a month.  As a general rule fatter tires use less pressure than skinny tires.  We also recommend applying a small amount of chain specific oil to your bicycle chain about once a month.  Following these guidelines can keep your bicycle running well for years to come.
