A bike needs care and maintenance like any healthy friendship.
First service after 300 km
After one month of use or about 300 km, all screws should be checked and tightened and functional parts reviewed.
Keep the chain lubricated
The chain should be well lubricated. Use oil or chain spray. The tension of the chain should allow 10-20 mm movement.
Inflate your tyres well
The tyres should have the correct air pressure for the bike to roll easily and avoid tyre punctures. Max pressure is indicated on the tyre side. Replace worn tyres.
Care for your saddle
Grease the leather saddle and take care of it like a nice pair of leather shoes. First, it's hard but will soon become supple and pleasant.
Cleanliness is a virtue
Keep the bike clean and free from salt to avoid rust, especially around hubs, brakes and bottom bracket. Keep the bicycle under roof and locked.
Do not wash the bicycle with high water pressure, as hubs and bearings may be damaged. Do not use degreasers or solvents on the paint.
