We have all seen the articles and blog posts on how to properly maintain your bike.
There are many different opinions on this subject, but we at Bike Who Cares Clarksville think that it is important for you to take a few minutes each week to give your bike some love!
This post will cover in depth what you need to do when caring for your bike.
We hope that by reading this article, you will be more educated about the care of bikes and feel confident in taking care of them.
Check tire pressure. It is important to make sure that your tires are properly inflated and at the correct PSI.
If you don’t know what this means, it’s time for an appointment with a bike expert!
But if you need some basic advice on how often to check them, we recommend checking them before every ride so they’re up to date when you use them next (even if it’s just going down the street).
Sticking tires can be dangerous because there isn’t enough grip on the road and while trying to stop or turn suddenly.
In addition, riding a flat tire will not only decrease efficiency but also increase vibrations which could cause wear and tear elsewhere.
