1. Check Brakes
Ensuring your bike’s brakes are working properly is essential for safe riding, so it’s important to check their function and adjust them if necessary.
2. Inspect Drivetrain
It's important to inspect the chain, derailleur, cassette, and other drivetrain components for wear or damage regularly. Any issues should be addressed before they become worse.
3. Adjust Gears
Proper adjustment of gears will ensure smooth shifting with minimal effort when changing speeds or going uphill/downhill.
4. Lubricate Chain
Applying lubricant to the chain regularly helps maintain its efficiency and reduce wear over time.
5. Check Wheels
Inspect the wheels and spokes for any signs of damage or wear, such as loose spokes or broken nipples.
6. Check Tires
Make sure your tires are inflated to the correct pressure and that there are no punctures or cuts in the tire treads.
7. Adjust Bearings
Check all bearings, including headset, hubs, and bottom bracket, for proper adjustment.
8. Clean Bike
Regularly clean your bike to remove dirt and grime that can cause parts to wear faster than normal.
