Find all the info you need to keep your bike in good shape
In the article below, you'll find all the checks to be performed before any bike ride:
The tyre is the only part of your bike in contact with the floor, so it's important to minimise the risk of losing grip. This means keeping your tyre at the right pressure. Find our tips here:
To set your saddle correctly, it's important to fasten your seat post properly. A loose seat clamp runs the risk of your saddle dropping during your ride. On the other hand, if you tighten it too much, you might crush your seat post and therefore damage your bike. The best way of tightening your seat post is to use a torque wrench. We recommend tightening to 6 to 7 Nm. Be careful not to exceed the maximum height shown on the seat post.
Riding with worn tyres comes with risks: Loss of grip, Exposure to punctures. In this article, we're going to help you recognise a worn tyre:
The chain is an essential part of your bike's drivetrain. It is important because it connects the chainset and the cassette. It transfers energy so that you can move forward efficiently, so it needs to be in good condition. This article explains how to recognise a worn chain:
To work out whether your brake pads are worn, you'll need to measure how thick the rubber is. If the wear indicator shows that it's too thin, you should change your brake pads.
You're sure to find the answer to your questions in the FAQs
Are your pedals broken? Do you want to swap your pedals for clipless ones? Follow our tips.
Please note that the screw thread on the left pedal is the other way around. You therefore screw this pedal on anticlockwise. The right pedal has a normal thread.
Make sure to use the correct tool to remove your pedals as you will need to use some force to unscrew them.
If you notice that your brakes aren't very effective, there are several things you can do:
- Clean your rims using a degreaser
- Check your brake pads for wear.
- Check that the cable tension is OK.
If your gears are skipping, you should check:
- Whether your drivetrain is worn.
- The tension of the cables.
After that, adjust the derailleur.
Worn drivetrain? Want to change the number of sprockets on your cassette? Watch our tutorial to find out how to change your cassette.
Please note: the maximum cassette size for this bike is 11 - 34.
Are your chainrings worn? Do you want to change the number of teeth? It's easy to change your chainrings. To do so, simply use an Allen key to undo the bolt that holds the chainrings on. Then install the new chainrings. On this bike, the minimum chainring size is 34t.
