… or “How to keep yourself running smoothly …”
Many bicycle repairs are that type you could do yourself. Very often this smaller works keep extend the life of your bicycle and keep you rolling.
So this is why we call it “the ABC” of the bike mechanic:
A like Air: Nothing compares to a dash of freshness – some air refreshes the rider and the wheels. After a while – mostly in some dark rooms or basements – your wheels get tired and loose some pressure (one bar per month). Very often the wheels are flat.
Some recommendations: Keep away from carwash or high pressure cleaners – they wash away everything, even oil we might need to keep the bicycle in good shape. Take your bike from time to time to the professional for a check. And keep your bicycle clean – in best case keep it in a dry place and if you have to store it for a longer time try to hang it.
This might result in a longer life of your bicycle and its parts and extends your fun.
