The last couple of weeks has seen an uplift in customers coming to the Yorkshire Bike Company for the maintenance of their bikes.
All sorts of problems from gears that don’t change properly, bottom bracket bearings that need replacing or simply checking over children’s bikes before the summer cycling season.
A top tip for the start of the season is to check to see if your chain is worn. If you don’t have a chain checker tool than give me a shout and I will gladly check your chain for wear free of charge.
The problem with a worn chain is that after a while it will not only make changing gear difficult it will also damage other parts and you may end up with a larger bill.
So remember check you chain for wear at the start of the season and save you self some money in the long run.
Replacing a worn chain prevents damage to more expensive components.
Enjoy your cycling.
