La Bicicleta or The Bicycle is my favorite type of transportation, I 90% go anywhere with this thin-running-iron-machine, I love to ride with bicycle daily. But, a stuff that we used daily is need to get the maintenance session including the La Bicicleta. I understand, most of you probably already know on how to take care a bike, but here I want to share what I’ve done to my bicycle to keep this iron-machine running well.
First, I want to mention the safety side. As mentioned in several sites such as www.asbestos.net and www.bikeradar.com, some parts of your bike might contain asbestos, so take a note of it. The case is, some special bike using the brake pad which is reported to contain asbestos. Other than that, some iron used on the bikes are also contain asbestos. Please read what asbestos is and how to remove/avoid it at www.asbestoswatchbrisbane.com.au/asbestos-removal-brisbane/. The oil, mud, the paint, and the exposed chain are dangerous, but some hidden materials such as the asbestos or other chemical material in your bike are also hunting your health so be careful on handling it.
After finding some dangerous things from the bike, now we jump to the maintenance routine.
Check the tires air pressure and make sure it meet the standard requirement of your bike. If you planned go to a long-distance place, please also check the quality of your tires. The old tires should need to replace with the new one. Don’t waste your energy on doing tire replacement on the road (more…)
