Our bicycles need to do some small maintenance frequently to maintain their beautiful appearance, and most importantly, to ensure the stability of their performance. In fact, the so-called tips of bicycle manufacturers are only one thing, that is, diligence, and yes, diligence to maintain their bicycles.
Only when you take good care of your bicycles, you won’t often have some big problems that you can’t solve. So, how do we maintain our bicycles?
The most important thing is to keep our bicycles clean. When we are riding outside, if the road conditions are not good, a lot of dust will be stuck on the various parts of the bicycle, and over time, it will become thick. Mud is more difficult to clean, especially the teeth of the chain, the tooth of the chainring and the pulley of the transmission. If it is not cleaned in time, we will see a thick sludge. What is the hazard of it? Since then, the wear of the chain and the chainring has been aggravated, and the speed change is not accurate, and the chain is often hit.
If it is a disc brake, clean up the disc and brake pads at intervals. After a long period of time, problems will occur, and abnormal brake noise will also occur. If it is a V brake, it is better to clean it up in time and keep it clean. If there is sand on the wheel, it will wear the wheel over time and cause the wheel to be scrapped.
If you have time, you can also clean the tires. When you ride outside often, it is easy to stick to chemicals. If you don’t clean it in time, it will cause the tires to age, reduce the grip, and increase the risk of riding.
To sum it up, it is still one sentence, that is, diligent maintenance. Only by diligently doing some daily cleaning work for our bicycle, then it will not strike at a critical moment.
