Some easy bike maintenance tips from the guy from Cycleworks:

  • clean your chain about once a fortnight, any gunk that accrues will stretch the chain out over time
  • use a track pump and pump your tyres up to the recommended amount once a week or so, will reduce chance of punctures
  • check the brakes are ‘going’ together, that neither is sitting on the rim of the wheel, adjust the springs if not
  • from time to time, check there’s no give in the pedal cranks or headset
