Before you head out make sure to check out these tips.

AIR

 

AIR

Check if there is sufficient air in the tires, also check that tire treads are in good condition and not showing signs of wear or damage. Bicycle tires need to be inflated weekly as they will naturally lose air over time.

 BRAKES

BRAKES

Make sure the brakes are in good operation and shape and when force is applied to your brake levers. They should stop the tire’s rotation. Check brake pads for wear. 

 

CHAIN

CHAIN

Check the chain. Pull the chain from a section of the chain ring to inspect tension. A large amount of slack in the chain indicates needed adjustment or replacement is needed.
