So, as good as it’s been this week, let’s face it, the grotty weather is not that far away! We’re soon going to be scrubbing mud and god knows what else off of mountain bikes and road bikes alike.
With this in mind, now is the perfect opportunity to make sure our bikes are ready for the winter onslaught. Or, for those of us lucky enough, time to make sure the winter bike is ready to be called into action when the weather is too bad for our best, water soluble steeds to venture out of the shed.
Also, if you're looking to put your best bike away for the winter, make sure it's clean, fully serviced, lubed and greased. That way, your bike will be ready for that first impromptu ride in the spring and you won't be caught out by a chain that's gone rusty or a seized bottom bracket - all caused by a poorly maintained bike being left static for a few months.
