The Benefits Of Keeping Your Bike Chain Clean

WHY DO YOU NEED TO KEEP YOUR CHAIN AND DRIVE TRAIN CLEAN?

Regular lubrication of your bike chain and running gear has a huge impact on your bikes performance and riding.

Lubrication of the chain will reduce the resistance between the chain and the cogs meaning that your bike is easier to peddle, will have less wear and tear on moving parts, and will reduce corrosion form weather exposure.

A quick chain and sprocket clean and a re lubing of components at regular intervals will keep your bike running at its maximum potential and will save you money on replacing worn out or damaged parts that arise from not having a good bike maintenance schedule in place.

If you ride often, clean and lube your chain and sprockets at least once a month. If your ride in more adverse conditions then you should consider every couple of weeks at a minimum.
