BEFORE EACH RIDE
In the name of safety and the long life of your bicycle here are 5 things you should check before you take a ride.
A bicycle has four sets of bearings: front wheel, steer tube, bottom bracket (where the cranks are), and the rear wheel.
Most tires have the proper range of pressure printed on the sidewall. The higher the pressure the faster you’ll go, the lower the more comfortable the ride.
Make sure the bicycle is stopping. Examine calipers, pads, and cables.
The chain is one of the most important components on a bike. It should be free of rust and dirt and not make any squeaking sounds.
The saddle should be pointing straight ahead and adjusted to the correct height and the handle bars perpendicular to the front wheel.
If any of these things are wrong with your bike you should consult your local bike shop.
