Why should you do Spring Maintenance of your Bicycle every year?

Spring maintenance of your bicycle is important for several reasons:

  1. Winter damage: If you've been riding your bike through the winter, it's likely that it has experienced some wear and tear. Salt and other chemicals used to de-ice roads can be especially damaging to your bike's components. A spring tune-up can help identify any issues that may have arisen during the winter months and address them before they become bigger problems.

  2. Preparing for summer riding: Spring is the perfect time to get your bike ready for the summer riding season. By performing routine maintenance, you can ensure that your bike is in top condition and ready for any adventure you have planned.

  3. Saving money: By addressing minor issues early on, you can avoid costly repairs down the road. Spring maintenance can also help prolong the life of your bike, saving you money in the long run.

  4. Safety: A properly maintained bike is a safer bike. Spring maintenance can help identify any safety issues and ensure that your brakes, gears, and other critical components are functioning properly.

Overall, performing spring maintenance on your bike every year is an important part of owning and riding a bike. It can help prevent damage, save you money, and ensure that your bike is safe and ready for the riding season.
