Getting prepared for the winter weather

Getting prepared for the winter weather

The winter is upon us, this is why we need to get our bike ready for the rough winter weather. We need to make sure our bike is in 100% working order on the wet, cold and freezing winter days.

The winter is upon us, this is why we need to get our bike ready for the rough winter weather. We need to make sure our bike is in 100% working order on the wet, cold and freezing winter days.

This time of the year we recommend to do a full service, this will ensure that the bearings are greased and the cables are lubricated also. This will ensure the parts will last longer and will also work better.

It is also important to make sure the gears and brakes do work flawlessly. The performance of these parts are extremely important in winter conditions.

Lastly but no the least we need to pay extra attantion to our tyres. An old and worn tyre can be quite dangerous! If there’s an option fit a new tyre with a bit more agressive thread for the winter months.

 

Tip

·         There are studded tyres available from a few tyre manufacturers. These will add to our stability if we use the bike in extreme conditions also.

We recommend to use lubricant that has been specifically developed for winter conditions. These will last longer and also provide better lubrication even in harsh conditions.
