If you want to make your bike look brand new as the first day, accurate mechanical level which Swiss Watch and also want to save good money on your future visits to the workshop… just you should pay attention to the keys that give you today in our post on maintenance of the bike before and after each ride.
As any mechanic would say, there is no better medicine for our bike, motorbike or car to maintain…Yes, you read well, it not cheat you mechanical “simplicity” of a bike in comparison with the one of a car or motorcycle, since that, most repairs that are carried out in the workshops of are the result of a scarce inappropriate or even null maintenance of our precious friends with wheels.
So and focusing exclusively on bikes… be willing to pick up paper and pen when we started!
Whether you’re a user of mountain, road, ride bike or urban… prior to each output control points are always the same:
Condition Of The Tyres
Looking for cuts, deformation or stuck objects.
See if they show excessive wear on the tread (area in contact with the ground).
Make sure that air pressure is adjusted to the manufacturer’s recommended (available in the plane of the tyre in units PSI or bars).
These 3 simple gestures will minimize both the possibility of a fall of that you have to get the bike to repair a puncture.
State Of The Pads Or Brake Shoes
Notes that do not suffer excessive wear (discernible by the low retention in braking).
Slows down during the first meters and listening (if they make noise or have short retention may be contaminated or crystallized).
Only 2 checks to save you more than one scare and you play the physical lowering.
General Condition Of The Bike
Presta special attention to the handlebar, pedals and Saddle (look for gaps or strange noises.)
Check box or the different parts of the bike does not have bumps, cracks, loss of oil…
Avoid having wires frayed (especially at the level of the legs).
3 checks that will make you gain in Security and even ahead of mechanical problems that may be more.
State Of The Town
Make sure it is in good condition and above all… even if it is as new, changed after a major blow, since, the internal structure of the same could be damaged and not adequately protected.
1 head, 1 recommendation… do not you play it, is of the few elements that stand between you and the ground.
Once the “checking list” prior to departure and have returned full of mud, water, dust or fun… It’s time to give a rest to our bike and, as we will stick a good shower to try to relax the body, it will also need a few care that will not take us more than 10 minutes (but we will save many headaches of head and money in future repairs easily avoidable).
Within the procedure of cleaning and lubrication will find just 6 steps to follow… ready for your sponge we started!
1. Moja Bicycle With Abundant Water
To avoid unnecessary wear on components (if you only have water pressure by hand, applying it from half a meter away).
2. Pour About A Little Cleaner Sponge
And starts to gently rub the box, tires…(always proceed to clean from the top of the bike towards the bottom).
3. Applies To The Transmission System
(Dishes, sprockets, chain, change and derailleur) bike specific degreaser and let stand 2-3 minutes. Past that time comes to brush the parts to remove the mud, dust… (most of the dirt and more harmful, always focusing in this area).
4. Clarifies With Abundant Water
(Except for those that go to the rubber of the tire).
5 Dry The Chain
Clean with a cloth and used another to dry the rest of the bike (never let dry the chain to the Sun since it oxidaría).
6 Lubricate Only The String
(Never chainring/sprocket) with specific products for bike, part internal, without excesses and let stand several hours before the next exit (won’t do much good lubrication shortly before the route because, would have barely penetrated inside of it and its own speed would that lubricant “escape us” pringando us the picture and ourselves).
Finally, an Council very to take into account:
If you use disc brakes, avoid by all means falling them, both to disk and pads, any product chemical (oils, waxes, degreasers, soaps…), the best practice would be to clean them with water or isopropyl alcohol and, in case of having dirt, clean cloth or brush.
