Maintenance

What ever the bike you take, you are responsable of the use but also the maintenance of it. 

Read carefully the maintenance required for your type of bike and don't hesitate to contact us if you need further information.

City bikes:

Most of our city bikes have internal gear system (Shimano Nexus, Sturmey Archer). This type of gear has less breakdowns and requires less maintenance because the change is in a closed box where mud, dust, sand or water cannot access and it gives a longer live to the chain since is not going up and down.

About the brakes, usually have roller/drum brakes, it means less maintenance as well and only sometimes there is V brakes at the front, where the only thing to change are the pads on time before it can damage the pads and cable.

Also, check the tyre pressure, depending on the season it'll be more or less often (on winter time more often than on summer).

Trekking bikes:

It has external system, it means it has a crankset, chain, freewheel/cassette and derailleur (front+back), having so many components is good to have more gears, but it also requires more maintenance. Each piece has to be cleaned and greased every two weeks (usually) it always depends on km and type of aggressiveness when riding.

Also, check the tyre pressure, depending on the season it'll be more or less often (on winter time more often than on summer).

Race bikes:

Race bikes are used more occasionally and for many kilometers, so we recommend to do the maintenance more often (depending on km, weight, weather and road). This maintenance will include the cleaning and greasing of the full transmission, greasing the seat post, screw check (stem) + grease when needed.

Before riding, check the tyre pressure and quick release always.
