Yearly Maintenance

After another riding season it is a good to perform some seasonal maintenance before tucking your bike away for its winter hibernation (or in preparation of the winter riding season). Commonly overlooked parts are the hubs, headset, and bottom bracket, often being neglected until they begin causing problems or fail. Cleaning, lubrication and proper adjustment of these parts extends their life and keeps them functioning properly. Simple services like this will ensure your bike is ready to go when spring or a blue bird winter day arrives. Just don't forget to check your tire pressure before you ride!
