Routine maintenance affects the performance of every cyclist. A cycling enthusiast from Cube shares some tips about bicycle maintenance:

  • Tires: Beware of the bicycle tire condition. Under-inflation makes your trip difficult to ride and your tire and wheel frame would be easily deformed; over-inflated tires can make your road bumpy and will increase the burden on the tube.
  • Antirust: Take care of important joints such as axles, flywheel, pedals, bicycle chains and brakes. Regular lubrication helps protect your bicycle from corrosion. Flywheel should be applied with thin oil. Also, it is recommended to clean your bike with kerosene once a year.
  • Chains: Gently wipe your bike chains with a rag or cloth after a ride. Recent rust can be easily removed with Kitchen Cleaner. It is better to use Kerosene to wipe the corroded areas again since it can restore the lustre of your bike.
  • Balance: Keep it balanced and ensure that the load is consistent or it will become deformed. Store your bicycles with proper stands.

Here are 3 popular bike racks recommendations to fit different needs:

  • Vertical Storage Rack – Wooden and plastic options to save more space;
  • Repair stand – Can be flexibly placed in different places and occasions, also be used as maintenance platform;
  • Auto pole – Vertical rack, usually supports a minimum of two bicycles.
