Find out how to maintain your bike properly.
The tyres are the only part of your bike that are in contact with the ground. It's important to minimise the risk of them losing grip, which is why it's important to make sure they are inflated to the right pressure. The maximum and minimum tyre pressures can be found on the tyre sidewalls.
To set your saddle correctly it needs to be securely in place. A loose seat post can slip when you're out and about on your bike. Conversely, if it's too tight, you run the risk of crushing the seat post and damaging your bike. The best way to tighten a seat post is to use a torque wrench. We recommend you tighten it to between 6 and 7Nm. Take care not to exceed the maximum height indicated on the seat post.
Riding with worn tyres comes with risks: Loss of grip and the likelihood of exposure to punctures. Correctly inflated tyres and avoiding road debris such as glass and grit etc all help but unfortunately punctures do happen !
To find out if your brake pads are worn, you need to check the thickness of the rubber remaining on the pad. If it has been worn down to the wear indicator, then you need to change your brake pads.
You'll find the answer you're looking for in the FAQ.
Are your pedals broken? Do you want to change your pedals for clipless ones? Here's our advice. NB: please note that the screw thread on the left pedal is inverted and that the pedal thus screws on in an anti-clockwise direction. The right pedal has a standard screw thread. Please use the correct tool to take your pedals off as force needs to be exerted to unscrew them.
There are several things you can do if your brakes aren't working as well as they used to: - Use a degreaser to clean the rims. - Check the brake pads for wear. - Check the tension of the cable.
If your gears are slipping, you need to check the following: - Wear on your drive train. - The tension of the cables. You then need to adjust the derailleur.
Is your drive train worn? Do you need to change the number of cogs on your cassette? Watch our tutorial video to find out how to change your cassette. NB: the largest cassette that can be fitted on this bike is 11-34.
Is your chainring worn? Do you want to change the number of teeth? It's easy to change your chainring. All you need to do is use an Allen key to unscrew the screws holding the chainring in place. You can then fit the new chainring.
