Education Video Series: Basic Bike Check
September 30, 2013/
An easy way to make sure your bike is in good working order is to do an ABC Quick Check.
This Monday, we’re highlighting the “Basic Bike Check” in our latest bike education video. You can watch and download all of the videos here.
Air: Be sure you have enough air in your tires
Brakes: Look to see that your brake pads are not worn
Chain and Cranks: Pull on your cranks to see that they are not loose and look to see that the chain is not rusted and it is free of gunk
Quick Release: Make sure all quick releases are closed
Check: Take a slow brief ride to check that your bike is working properly
