Pedaling is the sacred time of many people’s day. Until a brake cable breaks down and everything goes downhill. The good news is that this only happens when the bike components are not checked. Here are some things to check before you leave with the skinny.
Check the tires
Tire pressure measuring devices are not usually expensive, but they are very useful. Many pumps already have meters. Tire pressure can be affected by many factors, including the driver’s weight (usually heavier pilots generate more pressure), weather conditions and construction (tubeless tires often withstand lower pressures). The ideal tire pressure varies greatly, but not infrequently it is written on the side of the tire that range of pressure you can use.
Always check the rubber condition. Remove debris. You can check for anomalies by turning the tire and keeping your hand lightly on it. Check the sides against tears and holes, which often cause problems later. And remember: any problem with a tire is much easier to solve at home than at the roadside.
Test and check the brakes
If your brake is V-Brake, always check the condition of the pads. Also check that they are secure, since they are fastened with a screw, this screw may loosen over time. The brake cable transmits the force, make sure it is not loose, badly tightened or corroded. Over time, a layer of debris may form on the rim, which disrupts braking. If the rim or brake disc collects oil or other type of lubricant, the brake will become virtually useless.
Take a ride with the bike before you leave, brake hard and watch for the bumpy behavior and noises. In the case of disc brakes, it is important to check that the brake is in the right position – a brake with problems usually requires tightening of the lever. This may indicate air in the hydraulic system. Check hoses for cracks and dryings. Look for cracks or cracks in the brake caliper. Brake issues are some of the worst you can have on a track.
Cables make important components – like brakes – work. Checking them out is more than important. One thing they need is lubrication for proper operation and protection against rust.
Do not continue using a cable that is corroded or damaged. Replace.
Once again, ride your bike and check how they work. Freie, change the gears, make the cables work!
Exchange and Lubrication
An exchange system is manufactured almost entirely in metal. And metal scraping on metal does not turn out to be a good thing. That’s why there are lubricants, which allow things to work smoothly.
Always make sure that your gearbox is lubricated. Another thing that may occur is the need to change the lubricant. This requires cleaning the system, removing old lubricant and putting in a new one, but preventing serious damage to the assembly.
Take advantage of and check the entire gear system, paying attention to chain wear, gear teeth and cable tension. Deregulated exchange will not prevent your pedaling, but it will annoy you a lot and can get some damage in the system.
Check out the grips overall, especially from areas that suffer more stress. Check the steering box, tighten the pedals, tighten the blocks or axles and the table attachment on the handlebars. Finding out they are loose during a technical descent several miles away from home is not very enjoyable.
