The maintenance schedule for a bike can vary somewhat on how often it's ridden and what condition it's in to begin with. Bikes that are ridden off-road or in the rain will need a little more TLC than one that ventures through the streets of Sydney a couple of times per month.
However, using the following guidelines will help keep a bike good working condition - and help you know when it's time to bring it in to a mechanic.
These tips require a few basic tools (allen key, wrench, bike lube and de-greaser.) We sell these in the shop, if you need them.
Don't forget a good bike pump, to keep air in your tires!
