When it comes to bike maintenance, we all know the importance of chain lubrication and cleaning your bike. But what many don’t know is that you just can’t use any kind of soap to wash your bike and there are lubrications on the market that should not be used on your bike parts.
But just as bad as using a soap that is too harsh on your bike or using the wrong type of lubrication is ignoring these tasks altogether. Think about the drinks that may have been sloshed on your frame or the gunk that has accumulated on your drivetrain, it is easy to see how this type of buildup can cause problems.
Give your road bike or mountain bike a longer lifespan and enjoy less frequent breakdowns by treating your bike right. Use the right bike cleaning tools, bike lubes and bike brushes to ensure your bike is clean, properly lubricated and performing at peak level.
