What is the right tyre pressure?

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: 

How to tighten your seat post

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.

When to change your tyre

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:

When to change your brake pads

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.

CHANGING YOUR PEDALS

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.
