SAFETY BIKE SERVICING OVERVIEW

Our bike safety service is great for all bikes that need minor tweaks and adjustments. Is your bike is only a few months old? or has been it ridden a few hundred miles? Let’s say your bike has been sat in the shed for a while everything has dried up, the bike chain is dry and chain links are stiff, the headset feels a little stiff. Could your brakes be better? All Bike Brakes are not as effective when the brake lever returns to close to the bar, do your gears not change up or down properly as good as they once did? Are the bike tyres splitting or showing cracks?

BIKE SERVICING? MY BIKE FEELS OK TO RIDE?

Servicing your bike is very important! For Bikes to run smooth problem free your bike will need regular servicing even if it feels ok to ride at the moment. Servicing is not the same as bike repairs.

Keeping a bike in tip-top condition from the start will cause less wear and tear on components, a serviced bike will let you down less often. Once Bike repairs direct has completed a bike service your bike is much safer to ride than one that has had no servicing since new.

WHEN TO SERVICE YOUR BIKE?

Does your bike feel ok to ride? Have you put a fair few miles in? Bike servicing should be a routine you stick too, by doing this you put your bike and yourself at less risk of anything going wrong. I often see bikes with very loose nuts and bolts, frayed cables, stretched chains, worn cassettes and so on, yet the owner has no idea that the bars could turn, a wheel could slip out of the frame, or a tyre pressure is so low the tyres are splitting.
