Today's Tip

Regular Drivetrain Maintenance Is Essential - Today's multi-speed bicycles get you where you're going faster and with less effort. And all those gears make it more important for you to keep your drivetrain in tip-top shape. Clean and lubricate the chain and all moving parts to prevent squeaks and stickiness. Adjust the limit settings on your derailleurs if the chain is coming off or won't fully complete a shift. Clean and adjust your brake pads if they squeal when you use them. We can suggest the tools, cleaners and lubes you'll need, guide you to some good books with helpful information, or even do the work for you in our service department. These simple adjustments, if not done properly, can cause more serious problems. Give us a call today.
