Wednesday 3 May 2023 Filed in: workshop news
Spring is well and truly here, so dust off your bike and bring it in for a service, it probably costs you less than you would think, and can even SAVE YOU MONEY in the long run, by catching small issues before they become big ones!
As a cyclist, may well already know that regular bicycle servicing is essential for keeping your bike from breaking down just when you ned it.
But did you know that there are many other benefits to bringing your bike in for a service?
Here are just a few:
1. Safety: A well-maintained bike is a safe bike. A professional bike service will check all of the critical components on your bike, such as the brakes, gears, and tires, to make sure they are in good working order and that your bike is safe to ride.
2. Performance: A well-maintained bike will perform better. When all of the components on your bike are properly adjusted and aligned, your bike will be easier to ride and will shift more smoothly. This will make your rides more enjoyable and efficient.
3. Saving Money. A little known part of regular maintainance, is that, if done twice a year, it can often largely pay for itself in the saved cost of bigger repair bills down the line. For example, chains can wear over time, especially in wet weather riding, this wear then leads to the degradation of parts such as the cassette and chainrings, which can cost a lot more ot replace. By servicing your bike regularly, we can catch many of these issues when they are only affecting the cheaper consumable components, ensiring that your chainrings enjoy a full life.
4. Peace of mind: Knowing that your bike is in good working order gives you peace of mind. You won't have to worry about your bike breaking down on a ride, so you can focus on enjoying your time on the bike.
So if you're a cyclist, just getting your bike out of the shed, be sure to contact us on here and arrange for your service before taking on those long summer rides.
Here are some additional benefits of bringing your bike in for a service:
Extends the life of your bike: Regular maintenance can help to extend the life of your bike by identifying and repairing any potential problems before they become major issues.
Saves you money: The cost of a regular service is often much less than the cost of repairing a major problem that could have been prevented with regular maintenance.
Increases your enjoyment of cycling: A well-maintained bike is simply more enjoyable to ride. It shifts smoothly, brakes quickly, and handles well. This can make all the difference in your enjoyment of cycling.
So if you're not already bringing your bike in for regular service, now is the time to start. It's a small investment that will pay off in the long run.
