Take these simple steps to prolong the life of your bike and get the most out of your ride. 

1. Keep your bike dry and clean. Riding in wet weather is fine but leaving your bike constantly exposed to the elements will decrease the life span of leather components and moving parts. 

2. Check your tyre pressure regularly.  We recommend that your tyre pressure is between 55 - 65 psi. This will ensure a smooth, easy ride and maximum traction. 

3. Lube the chain every 1 - 2 months. A well lubricated chain will last longer and decrease drive-train wear.  You can purchase lube from your local bike store. We recommend 'dry' chain lube as it is less likely to get on your clothes.
