What is wrong with my bike

Shop Talk – What is wrong with your bike?

Well looks like we are going to be blessed with some spring like weather this weekend and I am sure some of you will be pulling you bicycles out or the kids bikes out for a little spin around the block, or longer.   I doubt we will see the surge of repair bikes this weekend; it won’t be long before we do.  If you are looking for service now is the time to get your bike in, beat the rush.

                          

 

While on the topic of service, I want to suggest a quick little check that can apply to all bicycles!  Something, we see  a lot of are unmaintained bikes.  The three biggest problems we see are; bicycle tires under inflated, non lubed chains and improper brake set up.  So we have a simple acronym to help you remember what to check on your bike.

                                                               A    B   C

A - Air! Always check the air pressure!  Labeled on the side of the tire wall are the minimum to maximum pressures

B -  Brakes! Always check your brakes!  Pull both levers to the handle bar and gently rock the bike back and forth to make sure there is no significant play

C – Chain, crank, cassette!  Always check the chain for rust and stiff links.  Gently back peddle the crank arm to ensure that the chain runs smoothly over the cassette and rings.  Be sure to check and lube the chain as well. 

As always, please contact us for ANY questions regarding your bicycles
