1, Check your tyre pressure before riding
It's worth checking your tyre pressure before every ride. Tyres that aren’t inflated to the right pressure can diminish your riding experience. It’s a good idea to check your tyre pressure before every ride and invest in one of the best bike pumps to keep them inflated.

2, Keep your bike clean
Cleaning your bike regularly will keep it running smoothly and reduce the wear on components, saving you from prematurely replacing parts or having to make extra trips to the bike shop. We’d recommend cleaning your bike at least once a week in the summer and after every ride in the winter.

3, Prepare right maintenance tools
Doing the routine maintenance with some tools such as bike pump, a set of good-quality hex keys, torque wrench, chain breaker tool, shock pump, etc.

4, Check bike brakes regularly
Keeping your brakes clean and free of contamination will stop any unnecessary noises, It’s also worth regularly checking the brake cable isn’t frayed and is under sufficient tension.

5, Check your chain for wear
Catching a worn chain on time will save you money in the long term. The chain experiences a heavy life and its pitch will grow in length over time. It’s worth investing in a chain checker and regularly checking for wear.
